Weiterbildung im Homeoffice: Wir bieten jetzt Online Trainings

Vieles bleibt uns aktuell verwehrt. Von manch anderem haben wir dafür umso mehr: Zeit zu Hause zum Beispiel. Warum die nicht sinnvoll nutzen und sich weiterbilden? Das ist eure Chance, all die Ungereimtheiten, die sich im Arbeitsalltag mangels Zeit aufgestaut haben, endlich mal zu klären. Oder euer Wissen hinsichtlich bestimmter Anwendungsfälle eurer Firmensoftware zu erweitern. Oder euch mit einer für euch komplett neuen Software zu beschäftigen.

Wir haben in den letzten beiden Wochen einen Großteil unseres Schulungsangebots auf Online umgestellt und freuen uns, euch jetzt die ersten Termine zu präsentieren.

Die NETWAYS Online Trainings starten am Dienstag, 28. April 2020, mit der zweitägigen Schulung „GitLab Training“.

Alle bisher geplanten Online-Termine sind:

Online-Trainings vermitteln die gleichen Lerninhalte wie der Präsenzunterricht, inklusive aller Übungen. Audiovisuell mit Deinem Trainer und den anderen Teilnehmern verbunden erlebst Du unsere digitalen Trainings, als ob ihr in unseren Schulungsräumen wärt. Die Trainings finden live mit Direktübertragung von Bild und Ton statt.

Ein Online-Training bietet viele Vorteile

Unsere Trainer sind nicht nur im Bereich Schulungen tätig, sondern arbeiten regelmäßig in Software- und Kundenprojekten. Aufgrund ihrer Arbeit beim Kunden sind sie mit allen Wassern gewaschen. Und da diese Arbeit oft auch remote stattfindet, sind Online-Trainings für unsere Dozenten sozusagen gängige Praxis. Du bist also in guten Händen!

Durch eine begrenzte Gruppengröße von max. 10 Teilnehmern stellen wir einen effizienten Ablauf unserer Schulungen sicher. Natürlich bleibt dabei immer Zeit für Fragen. Auf Wunsch kann der Dozent den Inhalt Deines Bildschirms mittels Screen-Sharing einsehen und Dir Hilfestellung geben. Zudem steht Dir ein Co-Trainer für all Deine Fragen zur Verfügung. Freue Dich auf eine individuelle Betreuung und darauf, endlich mal all Deine Fragen loszuwerden!

Hier nochmal Deine Vorteile:

+ Reisekosten entfallen
+ Du nutzt Deine Arbeitszeit optimal aus
+ Du kannst bequem vom Arbeitsplatz oder von zu Hause aus teilnehmen
+ Individuelle Betreuung, schnelle Lernerfolge

Wir bleiben dran, euch auch weiterhin alles Wissenswerte zu den wichtigsten Open Source Tools zu vermitteln!

Auch nach Abklingen der Corona-Krise und Lockerung der Ausgangsbeschränkungen in Deutschland werden die Online-Seminare weiter in unserem Trainingsangebot bleiben. Online-Trainings werden dann das reguläre Angebot an Präsenzschulungen ergänzen.

DevOpsDays Berlin: Call for Papers open. Get involved!

The organizers of DevOpsDays Berlin once again invite IT professionals with DevOps experience to propose a talk and show their interest in contributing. DevOpsDays is a technical conference, aimed at developers, sysadmins and anyone else involved in technology, whether expert or beginner. The idea behind it: Understanding each others way of working, improving code and cooperation. It was the series of DevOpsDays conferences that made the term DevOps as popular as it is today.

The Call for Papers for DevOpsDays Berlin runs until July 05, 2020. Papers can be submitted at cfp.devopsdays.berlin/2020/.

If you have a hiring success story, can talk about diversity in teams or leadership, have a great tale to tell about spreading DevOps to the rest of your company or organization: Don’t hesitate to propose.

There are three different formats

  • 30-minute talk: Presented during the conference, usually in the mornings. Anyone can submit a presentation. The DevopsDays Berlin program council will choose the best presentations among these submissions, which will appear in the agenda of the conference.
  • Ignite talk: Presented during the Ignite sessions (scheduling varies). The ignite talks are a valuable portion of knowledge, lasting for 5 minutes. 20 slides change automatically every 15 seconds giving a condensed overview on a topic.
  • Hands-On session: Presentations of technical nature lasting for 45 minutes. Speakers should demonstrate a part of their work and give people the chance to ask questions. No product demos allowed.

There will also be Open Space sessions during the conference. The Open Space format is a very interesting and simple one. Short time before the Open Space starts, all attendees can suggest topics and vote on what topic is the most wanted. After this, participants create discussion groups. It is not necessary to propose ahead of time. The topics are suggested in person at the conference.

Get involved!

DevOpsDays events are unique in that they are entirely volunteer-supported, and not hosted by an industry vendor or for profit. If you are in any way interested in supporting that, be it by speaking or by volunteering at the event: Reach out to the organizers. Get involved!

#lifeatnetways

NETWAYS goes Business Cup 2020! Niko is looking forward to taking part with the NETWAYS-team and informs about this and other sports- events we will attend this year! Read about Aleksander in our blog-series NETWAYS stellt sich vor, where new members of the NETWAYS-family share a bit about themselves. How much can a company do for the environment? A group of colleagues worked on the subject and Catharina concluded with Umweltschutz a la NETWAYS.

 

Exclusion of NPD and AfD supporters from our events

The most important blog of the month was written by our very own CEO Bernd. He has changed our code of conduct to puplicly announce that we do not tolerate racism and that therefore no members or sympathizers of the AFD or NPD are welcome to any of our events. He informed the NETWAYS team in our annual meeting, and immediately got a roaring applause

Exclusion of NPD and AfD supporters from our events

We have always expressed our political convictions both personally and here in the blog. As a multicultural company, it has always been a concern to take a position where it is necessary. The political discourse in our country has unfortunately not really improved in the last months and weeks, and despite the increasingly extreme positioning of large sections of the AfD, a certain voter base also seems to have consolidated.

This concerns us as a company and me personally to a great extent. When people with whom you work every day are insulted as monkeys and applicants tell you that beer cans are thrown at them on the street, we should unfortunately feel remembered of our darkest times. This can not be tolerated.

Even if the extremes are in the minority, they are strengthened by the tolerant mass. In our view, not tolerating racism and extremism in any way and, whenever possible and necessary, raising one’s voice against it, is a matter of course.

We will draw the line more clearly in the future, especially at our conferences and events. We have added the following chapter to our Code of Conduct:

4.) We only work with people and companies who, like us, believe with absolute conviction in the free and democratic basic order and respect the dignity of all people. By accepting our Code of Conduct, you assure that you share our values and do not work with people or companies that degrade other people or promote the destabilization of our democratic system. The AfD and NPD parties should be mentioned here in particular. Conference participants be sanctioned or expelled from the conference without a refund.

One or the other reader may wonder whether an exclusion is undemocratic and whether we all have to seek dialogue with each other. I admit that this question has been on my mind for several weeks and months.

Ultimately however, I conclude that supporters of parties such as the AfD and NPD at least tolerate open racism in their ranks. And whoever does that, we would rather not have them among us.

OSCamp on Bareos: Let’s talk about backups!

Heterogeneous server landscapes are more the rule than the exception in many companies today. The technical requirements for software systems for data backup, archiving and recovery are increasing accordingly. What are the challenges coming with these changes? Let’s talk about it!

Let’s talk about backups at OSCamp!

CFP until end of march

The Call for Papers for the Open Source Camp (OSCamp) on Bareos is still open. Until March 31, 2020 you got the chance to submit your paper. Ideally you give a comprehensive technical insight into Bareos and offer administrators new impulses for data backup, archiving and recovery. Each presentation is scheduled for 45 minutes, including a 5 to 10-minute Q&A session. All software presented must be freely available for download and therefore meet open source standards such as GPL.

OSCamp – the series

The OSCamp on Bareos is where the community, users and developers meet – it’s an opportunity to talk to like-minded people and share expertise – as a speaker on stage, or as attendee during discussions and breaks.

Open Source Camp is a conference format dedicated to different Open Source projects and products and of course their communities. Get in touch with the Open Source enthusiasts behind the presented project. Learn new features and techniques, benefit from their extensive know-how and get up-dated on the latest developments. Backup your seat!

Join stackconf too

OSCamp #5 on Bareos takes place directly after stackconf, on June 19, 2020 in Berlin. Conference and camp venue is the same. More about stackconf at stackconf.eu! This is your chance to join two outstanding Open Source events in one week!
