With the end of the year, Endocode is announcing some changes to reshape the company’s leadership. Lisa will take over the role of CEO and Sebastian will take over as CTO. While this might come as a surprise to some, for most of us, this is a natural evolution of our company. What we mean with being a meritocratic and inclusive company is that those who are eager to participate, thrive and lead will get the chance to do so.
Some time ago, when kicking off a new project to integrate yet another Jenkins based CI setup for one of our customers, they asked us for a rather unusual feature: a second Jenkins master the system can failover to in case of malfunction, that eventually would reduce risk of downtime. What we came up with, why we got there and how we implemented it is what we’re sharing here with you.
April 11 marks an important milestone in our favourite compliance project of the year: Quartermaster - the compliance tool that implements a full Open Sourcce license compliance audit as part of a modern DevOps cycle. On April 11, 2018 Endocode will host the Quartermaster v.0.2 requirement workshop. This workshop marks the end of the development of v.0.1 of Quartermaster. A development cycle that added a completely new architecture, a modular implementation, a master graph database, gPRC based APIs for phase-specific modules written in different programming languages, and more demo builds to the initial prototype.
“You build it, you run it” is not a philosophy that can easily be taken to non web tech industries. This harsh reality is something we ran into while making our journey through the automotive industry. But if we cannot duplicate this philosophy outside of our web tech bubble, maybe it’s possible to create a mentality that at least supports the feeling of responsibility for every line of code that eventually finds its way into a product.
Today is the 14th of February. An important day for people worldwide. Why? Well obviously because it is “I love Free Software”-Day! The “I love Free Software Day” is where we give a shout out and thank you to all contributors in the community. What unites us as a community is that we share ideals like collaboration, constant improvements and equal opportunity to access, learn and contribute to Free Software. And all this would not be possible without everyone contributing their piece of the puzzle: The developers, the designers, the translators, the lawyers, the testers, the documentation writers and last but not least, the pizza bakers.
