Herzlich willkommen Tatjana!

Hallo, ich bin der neue Non-IT-Frischling. Als ich mich auf die Stellensuche machte um frischen Wind in mein Berufsleben zu bringen, lernte ich VSHN ehrlich gesagt eher durch Zufall kennen. Aber bereits nach dem 1. Meeting wusste ich, dass dies eine absolut coole Firma ist – vielleicht zum Teil noch etwas chaotisch, aber zukunftsorientiert und total nette und offene Leute. 🙂

The Art of Writing Deployment Pipelines

What a great time! Deployment automation, cloud platforms, containerization, short iterations to develop and release software—we’ve progressed a lot. And finally it’s official: Kubernetes and OpenShift are the established platforms to help us do scaling and zero downtime deployments with just a few hundred lines of YAML. It’s a great time.

Bem-vindo Nuno!

Bem-vindo Nuno. Before VSHN, I’ve been a Linux user from the nineties and then working in *nix technologies for more than a decade, specially leading teams, projects and as a manager. Five years ago I decided to work again as a technician, more focused in Cloud Operations and working remotely with a distributed team across the world. Along the way I was exposed to micro-services using Docker, compose and Kubernetes.

VSHN Teamevent #2 2019 – Foxtrail

Compared to the last time, the weather was at its best during our second team event. After we played Adventuregolf last time, it should be an outdoor event this time. The VSHNeers gathered in the office and didn’t know exactly what to expect despite some hints in advance. (tip to myself: never leave techies in ignorance…they don’t like that)

Suada Mirgadirova: My experience at VSHN

It is difficult to have a clear idea about what to expect from a job you would like to have in the future without ever being immersed in the work environment beforehand. Therefore, after coming across the website of VSHN – The DevOps Company, I decided to contact the company and ask for a two-day long introduction to the job. Luckily, shortly after I received an approval from Aarno Aukia, who happened to have graduated from the same school I am visiting now. I was informed that I could come to the company and learn from the software engineers Dimitri Wessels and Peter Bittner about the job. I was happy to find out that both were very much into Python, which I am learning to use for my school project.
