Yes! We just found another reason to celebrate. So what? kubernetes is turning one, and if that’s not a reason to celebrate, what is? So with the support of from our friends at StackPointCloud and CoreOS, we are throwing a kubernetes birthday party in Berlin! There will be drinks, there will be food, there will be talks. A fantastic view over Berlin is included. When: 21st of July 2016, 7pm
The EU-FOSSA project is something not only Endocode cares about. You should care about it too. Why? Let’s see what our Open Invention Network representative, European free software activist and CEO (aka the boss boss) Mirko Böhm has to say about it: The EU-FOSSA project’s mission is to “offer a systematic approach for the EU institutions to ensure that widely used critical software can be trusted”. The project was triggered by recent software security vulnerabilities, especially the Heartbleed issue.
cc-by-sa 3.0 Thomas Wegner/Berlin Buzzwords (no changes made) Last week was a busy week. Endocode was spread out across Europe, listening and contributing to the newest buzz. While some of our team were in Amsterdam at the GCP Next, finding out what’s new in Kubernetes 1.3, Endocode’s Thomas Fricke was contributing at the Berlin Buzzwords. It was the seventh time that the Berlin Buzzwords brought interesting and inspiring people together, to listen to keynotes and talks, ask questions and discuss ideas and experiences.
Endocode’s team is busy giving talks. On new technologies, on new developments and most importantly, on Open Source and it’s opportunities and challenges. A controverse topic that finds itself in the epicentre of many Open Source discussions is the topic of patents. And this is where Endocode’s Mirko Böhm enters the stage. Mirko is not only the CEO of Endocode, but also a director at the Open Invention Network, a shared defensive patent pool with the mission to protect Linux.

As you know, we at Endocode see free software as an essential to our company and to society. So how does the reality of patent law tie into our mission? Perfect question for Mirko Böhm, Endocode’s CEO. Apart from stirring things up at Endocode, Mirko is a researcher and lecturer at the Technical University of Berlin on the subject of free software and intellectual property.
