August is the typical month for holidays at NETWAYS. The schools are finally out for summer, and you would think everything would slow down a bit. But look at all the blogposts our colleagues wrote! No downtime at the NETWAYS HQ!

What was our Development Team up to?

Johannes started the month with Icinga Web 2 – More Goodies for Developers. He presented some interesting new functions for fellow developers.. Are you also annoyed with the Facebook newsfeed? Marius found a solution, which might actually be an alternative for some of us, in Facebook: endlich Ruhe. Alexander claims that Ansible is not just a hype, but extremely useful in Ansible + Icinga 2 = #monitoringlove.

The annual project week for our trainees took place in the beginning of august. Alexander told us the tale of 9 people from different departments getting together, agreeing upon a project, and actually creating it, in teamwork in just one week. Read about it in Azubiprojektwoche 2019. We have a new post in our blogseries NETWAYS stellt sich vor!
