Support and giving back
We believe in openness and sharing know-how, experience and code through Open Source. We use and support existing open source software wherever possible and give our own developments back to the community. Have a look at our VSHN company Github profile, our APPUiO product GitHub profile and K8up – the Kubernetes Backup Operator. Not only do we support the Linux Foundation and Cloud Native Computing Foundation financially in terms of our membership or sponsoring of KubeCon/CloudNativeCon, but also by organizing events like the Cloud Native Computing Meetups in Zurich. VSHN is also a member of CH Open, swiss made software and simsa/swico.
Giving back: We support initiatives like the Powercoders – our Bashar, for example, is a fugitive and we were able to offer him a permanent position at VSHN through the Powercoders program and an initial internship.
