Monthly Snap November 2019

Monthly Snap November 2019

The NETWAYS-November was, as usual, all about the OSMC. And, as usual, it was a splendid event with interesting talks, great food and the best attendees! But what else was on our minds?

The Juniors

Our Junior Consultant Aleksander started the month with Windows Passwort mit Linux zurücksetzen, wherein he described useful tools for resetting your Windows-password.  Artur wrote about his first project in Azubiprojekt für das erste Lehrjahr: Framadate!

SHOP

What does IoT mean, and which products do we offer with it? Nicole let us know in HW group: IoT mit Modbus und MQTT. She also gave us an overview on the various AKCP products in our shop in AKCP sensorProbe: 2, 4 oder 8 Sensoren, potentialfreie Kontakte und PoE. Our apprentices get to visit our different departments to learn more about the company. Artur visited the NETWAYS shop for a week and learnt about our offered products. Read what he found out about AKCP in AKCP sensorProbeX+: Individuelle Monitoring-Lösungen für IoT. A new product will soon be available in our shop: Leonie presented the SMSEAGLE MHD-8100-3G/4G.

Tipps from techies

Our consultants travel a lot, mostly by train. Christoph recommends a website that helps travellers find the best train wagon for their needs and informs of delays and technical Problems in Wie bekomme ich bessere Informationen über Züge als die DB. In SSH – Der Schlüssel zum Erfolg, David gave us a few tips on how to use SSH. According to Johannes Text-Utils can be of importance. Read Text-Utils unter Linux – Wer kennt sie?

OpenStack

Martin wrote his very first NETWAYS- blogpost this month! OpenStack made easy – Sicherheitsgruppen verwalten und zuweisen, which was also his first contribution to the blog series OpenStack made easy. And the next contribution came from Fabian: In OpenStack made easy… Mit Icinga 2-Master Maschinen überwachen he explains how to easily monitor Icinga 2 Master machines with OpenStack. Now it was Martins turn again! Read OpenStack made easy – Snapshots erstellen, rotieren, einspielen, where he taught us how to program Open Stack to create backup snapshots regularly.

#lifeatnetways

This month, two employees shared a bit about themselves in our series NETWAYS stellt sich vor. Read about our junior consultant Tobias, and the newest member of team-marketing Anke!

Keep developing

Florian proudly presented the new Icinga DB user interface: Das neue User Interface von Icinga DB. Check it out! Noah shared his knowledge on GitLab in GitLab-CI / YAML – Write less with Anchors, Extends and Hidden Keys. What is this SVG Feu is talking about? Read the Introduction to SVG: The Basics.

The OSMC after-effect

Dirk reported live from the OSMC! Read his thoughts on OSMC 2019 – Day 1. And what did Dirk do on the next day? Of course, he kept us up to date on talks, the evening event and delicious food in OSMC 2019 – Day 2. After the OSMC we traditionally have on Open Source Camp, where an open source project can be treated thoroughly. This year was all about Foreman. Alexander gave us his personal recap of the Open Source Camp on Foreman. For some attendees the hackathon after the OSMC is the highlight of the conference. Henrik enjoyed the Hackathon immensely, and highly recommends that we all attend next year! OSMC Hackathon – Share your impressions!

OSMC Hackathon – Share your impressions!

After two informative and exciting days at OSMC, the cherry on the sundae for me was joining our fifth OSMC hackathon for the first time. Hearing and learning about the discoveries, lessons learned and experiences made by other people in different environments, maybe using different tools, and being shown cool tricks and setups, I personally always get a little twitchy in my fingers wanting to jump at my keyboard and download, clone, install, code and play around with all the amazing new stuff I’ve learned attending OSMC 2019.
And the hackathon is the perfect setting to do this – people having seen the same talks, being excited about the same new features that have been at the forefront of discussion during the last few days.

On Wednesday the attendees made a short trip to a restaurant to have dinner, where people got to know each other casually and dream up the first plans and ideas for the main event tomorrow. After a well deserved night of sleep, the morning started with high spirits and a bit of coffee.

Round tables were placed in Saal Elizabeth, the biggest of the three OSMC conference rooms, everybody got together, and after Bernd welcomed us (and told us when lunch would be served!) everybody got a chance to introduce themselves, what one was looking for on this day, where areas of expertise lie, and if there are any specific problems to be solved.

 

Collaborative hacking equals collaborative fun

The topics were as diverse as the plethora of tools discussed at OSMC – people were working with GitHub Actions, Golang, Kubernetes, translating bash scripts in python, setting up clusters with Grafana, LOKI, Prometheus, automating the pain away with Ansible, having private lessons in Terraform, making logging more effective with Elasticsearch and Logstash, Icinga modules like Icingabeat, looking at the awesome stuff you can do with Icinga Director, and I’ve even seen people working on issues and pull requests – as we know, the community is always active. #monitoringlove <3 

Personally, I was working with Tobias on a SELinux check plugin for Icinga, but mostly, I was looking around, taking in the experience and trying to learn a bit from all the interesting discussions that developed. I can really recommend it! It can make your OSMC experience more complete and rounded, working, coding and developing alongside the experts. Maybe this year you were only able to check out our cool videos from OSMC, and you really wanted to ask one of our amazing speakers a certain question? Well, follow our Twitter at @NetwaysEvents, keep an eye out for the next registration, sign up for two days of open source monitoring goodness plus the hackathon and meet up with your engineering heroes – I’ll be there and I’m looking forward to you!

DevOpsDays Berlin: Last Tickets

On Nov 27 – 28 2019 the DevOpsDays Berlin are taking place!

Success factor open space

One of the success factors of previous DevOpsDays has been the open space format. It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s communicative. It fosters the sharing of ideas and insights in the good old fashion, in a non-technical way by just talking to each other. This doesn’t require any effort besides registering and showing up at the event.

Great international line-up

We have introduced the wonderful DevOpsDays line-up before, but let me drop some of these names again, because of the pleasant expectations they arise: Monica Sarbu (Elastic), Beth North, Daniel Löffelholz (ThoughtWorks), Leonardo di Donato (Sysdig), Jessica Anderson (Meltwater)… Or, put differently: Wrapped around the open spaces will be a great line-up of international speakers! Learn more about it here.

Register now, listen carefully and throw yourself into discussion!
