Monthly Snap September 2022

So much has happened in the last few weeks, but most importantly NETWAYS celebrated its 27th birthday! And what a birthday party it was, with a delicious cake and lots of pizza. And our new apprentices have started! It has only been a few weeks, but it already feels like they are exactly were they belong.

 

 

Three of our great blogs this month were

 

Install apps with Rocket.Chat Marketplace

Joshua taught us how to install apps with the Rocket.Chat Marketplace. He gave us a step-by-step for connecting to the cloud before installing Jitsi or any of the other apps.

 

 

 

Ansible- Testing roles with Molecule

Thilo is back again with advice regarding Ansible. He recommends Molecule to test Ansible code and gave us detailed input on how to get started with it, and how to avoid common mistakes in the process.

 

 

Get started with Prometheus

Prometheus is a monitoring software and Martin K. told us more about how to monitor Kubernetes with it. But Prometheus can do more then just that, so Martin presented various packages you can obtain to learn more about all the possibilities. You can also find the Webinar in our YouTube channel! NETWAYS – YouTube

NETWAYS Chefs – Luxshana kocht ein pikantes Reisgericht

Wie bereits bekannt, essen wir bei NETWAYS sehr gerne. Da ist es ja eigentlich nur logisch, dass auch viele von uns gut kochen können! Diesmal stellt Luxshana ein Reisgericht vor. Sie kocht es sehr gerne weil es nicht nur gut schmeckt, sondern sich auch hervorragend zum Mitnehmen zur Arbeit eignet. Kurz aufgewärmt und schon hat sie ein richtig gutes Mittagessen.

 

Du brauchst:

Gekochter Reis (einfach 250g von deinem Lieblingsreis kochen)

Eine Hähnchenbrust

Ca 1/2 Paprika

2-3 Champignons

1 kleine Karotte

1 Frühlingszwiebel

Eine Handvoll Weißkohl

 

   

 

Und nun das Wichtigste: die Gewürze:

Sojasoße

Chillipulver

Curry

Paprika

Kurkuma

Pfeffer

Salz

 

Und so geht es!

  • Das Gemüse klein hacken und das Fleisch in Mundgerechte Stücke schneiden
  • Zuerst das Fleisch in der Pfanne angebraten und dann das Gemüse hinzufügen
  • Die Gewürze dazugeben (Menge je nach Geschmack)
  • Den gekochten Reis unterrühren
  • Dann mit Salz, Pfeffer und Sojasoße abschmecken

 

 

Wenn das Gericht ein Bisschen ziehen darf vermischen sich die Gewürze mit allen Zutaten und alleine vom Duft bekommt man Hunger!

Tipp:

Wer es nicht so gerne scharf mag kann einen Teil vom Chili wegnehmen, und wer es lieber vegetarisch mag lässt das Fleisch einfach weg.

Men Fazit:

Ein vielseitiges Gericht, bei dem man Gemüse der Saison verarbeiten kann und es schmeckt super lecker!

Viel Spaß beim Nachkochen!

Monthly Snap August 2022

 

August was a bit calmer than the previous month with no summer party, no conferences, and not even a tiny trip to Amsterdam! But we had a good month anyway. Manfred, a former colleague, now pensioner, made sure we had loads of ice cream for the summer (Thank you Manfred!), and we happily enjoyed it on our rooftop along with our iced coffee. (Yes, we are definitely spoiled!)

But we also wrote lots of good content for you! Three of our top-blogs were:

 

Collaboration with Nextcloud

Is Nextcloud just another cloud solution? Evidently not! Stefan let us in on the possibilities for collaboration with our Nextcloud, such as sharing within a team, working on the same project, and even for videoconferences and messaging.

Read about all the possibilities and test it for free!

 

Guacamole and Icinga Web 2

Guacamole?? What is it and what has it got to do with Icinga Web 2? Saeid first explained the basics, and then showed us how to get remote access to Linux and Windows systems in Icinga Web 2- with a little help from Guacamole!

Check it out!

 

Mattermost

What is this Mattermost that everyone is talking about? Leonie told us of this communications tool, which is not only great for internal communication in a company, but also for collaboration in projekts, and- great for IT companies- with loads of templates you can adjust to your wishes!

And the best part: You can test it for free for 30 days risk free!

 

But of course there was more than just those:

Katja thanked our stackconf sponsors and partners, Philipp taught us about the Openstack Traefik provider, Katja shared talks from last years´ OSMC, Feu reported from the Icinga Camp in Berlin, Katja announced that the stackconf archives are now online.

Isi reported that the HWgroup Ares 10 is no longer in production, Martin K. announced the release of Icinga Director branches, Patrick taught us how to Shellscript our own Little Free Intrusion Detection System with Detector OSS IDS.

In NETWAYS stellt sich vor you can get to know Marc R., Katja announced that the agenda for the DevOpsDays 2022 in Berlin is available and Julia cooked a lemony pasta dish in our blog series NETWAYS Chefs!

Last but not least Joshua let us know what’s new when you integrate other apps with your NWS Rocket.Chat. Just follow his step by step guide!

This was the NETWAYS Blog in August put in a nutshell for you. Hope you enjoyed the read and found new and interesting topics! See you in September!

Monthly Snap July 2022

July was an eventful month! First of all, we were really happy to go to beautiful Amsterdam for this year`s Start-up days. We had an amazing time together! Then some of us went to Berlin for the stackconf followed by the Icinga Camp. Naturally it was a blast! What else did we do in July? Well of course there was our legendary annual summer party, !

 

 

Dreaming of the OSMC

 

Katja told us which workshops are taking place on the first day of the conference and made us look forward to the conference even more. Then she shared links to last year`s talks such as Jeff Gehlbach`s case study Handling 250K flows per second with OpenNMS and Simon Meggle`s talk Robotmk: You don`t run IT – you deliver services!

 

Ad guards

 

In the blog- series on ad-blocker Matthias tested the adblocker AdGuard Home and compared it to the Pi-Hole in AdGuard Home als Werbeblocker – ein ernstzunehmender Pi-Hole-Konkurrent? Then Marc R shifted the focus to Pi-Hole in Pi- Hole – das Urgestein der DNS-basierten Werbeblocker.

 

Icinga

 

Martin K. brought us up to speed on the newly released Icinga DB! And Christian told us what is new regarding Icinga for Windows.

 

#lifeatnetways

 

Julia wrote about our unforgettable Start-Up days in Amsterdam!  And Nathaniel finished his apprenticeship and took a glance at the past three years. Then we had a new post in our series NETWAYS Chefs: this time Andrew cooked Spaghetti con aglio e olio d`oliva in our great office kitchen.

 

Good to know

 

Nicole taught us about Elasticsearch and it`s features, and Daniel B. wrote about Git configuration in Divide and conquer – Verteilte Git- Konfiguration.

 

stackconf

 

Since the stackconf took place in Berlin this month, we have several articles for you, such as Katja`s Behind the scenes – Part 1/2 and Part 2/2. Then Dominik told us of the first day of the conference and Michael recapped day two.
