Endocode is a company inspired and driven by open source methodologies. It is safe to say that we have touched bases with this company called Red Hat in the past. Founded more than 20 years ago, Red Hat has been busy proving that the open source way of developing and contributing software - collaboratively, transparent and meritocratic - is the future of IT. Today, Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of open source enterprise IT products, with it’s main areas of technologies being middleware, operating system, virtualization, storage, mobile and cloud computing.
Welcome to 2017! As winter is holding Berlin in it’s icy grip, we have come up with a few things you could do in February to keep yourself warm and busy at the same time. Though we might have been a bit quiet in January, we have used this month to prepare a few events for February that you should definitely consider joining – and not just for the benefit of our working heaters.
We’re almost done with 2016 and while on a global scale, this year has been a bit rocky, we have various reasons to look back and be proud of what we have achieved. We have been contributing to Open Source projects: to ConnMan, to systemd, to fleet, to Kubernetes, to the NGINX Ingress Controller, to ofono, to python-oca, to skydns, to the Mattermost LDAP Plugin and a few more. Oh and we also created a tool to create, update and rollout Kubernetes resource yamls from a template.
It’s the season to be jolly… – wait, what? Oh. It’s GDG DevFest Season 2016. Yes. GDG DevFests are large, community-run events that offer speaker sessions across multiple product areas, all-day hack-a-thons, code labs, and more. In 2016, the official DevFest Season runs from September 01st through November 30th. These events are organized by the Google Developer Groups worlwide, and the Google Developer Groups of Berlin are organizing their fest on the 11th/12th of November.
After a short summer break where hopefully everyone enjoyed the few minutes of sunshine the Berlin summer has granted us, we are back with our next Kubernetes Meetup in September! Join us on the 14th of September at the Endocode headquarter and learn more about OpenShift and lessons on saving AWS with Kubernetes. We are very excited to welcome Lutz and Felix as our speakers. Lutz (@AtomicContainer) studied computer science at TU-Berlin and worked as a sysadmin in mixed Linux / Windows environments.
If you watched our Twitter account this weekend, you noticed that we weren’t just lying in the sun/hiding from the rain. On Saturday, we opened our doors and welcomed our friends from Crate.IO for a Kubernetes hackathon. Crate is an open-source, highly scalable, shared nothing distributed database. And yes. They love containers. And that is how we met. So Saturday was here and along with it arrived some 20 enthusiasts who were ready for some hacking.
So the weekend is here. Fantastic. What are we up to on our Saturday? Well. We’re welcoming our friends from Crate.io for a kubernetes Hackathon at the Endocode HQ. Having integrated with Mesos and Docker, Crate is kick-starting their advanced support for Google’s orchestration tool with this hackathon. There will be introductory talks about Crate and kubernetes during the day, food, drinks and cluster hacking on Google Compute Engine, kubernetes and Crate.
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
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.
Join us for an online webinar on how to get started with Kubernetes! Get a short introduction to the open-source system for automating deployment, operations, and scaling of containerized applications and then dive right into it! Thomas Fricke (Endocode) and the Product Manager of Kubernetes, David Aaronchick (Google), will answer the top 10 common Kubernetes questions as well as questions you sent us. Get to know Kubernetes and see how our experts implement it on the ground!
