Lift off into the cloud

In our business, it is extremely important to always be on the ball. New challenges and new jobs usually go hand in hand with an incredible amount of technical knowledge acquisition. That often makes staying on the ball quite difficult. In our team, we take knowledge transfer and teamwork very seriously. Everyone has his or her own specialty, but we always look beyond the horizon. That is where our strength lies. We can bring together the right specialists on a project basis, allowing us to cover an incredible range of possibilities. At least once every Friday, we all meet in the kitchen of our Vienna office, eat together, exchange ideas and learn from each other.

Sharing knowledge and experience is just as important for us externally as it is internally. We want to give our customers and partners, as well as anyone who is interested in what we do, the opportunity to access our knowledge at any time.

Matthias | DevOps Consultant

A typical day

A typical day of consulting at a customer’s premises often starts with a team stand-up meeting or something similar. There we discuss the topics from the last few days and talk about the tasks that lie ahead. Then we get right into implementing, documenting and discussing the tasks. Often, we need to hold smaller team workshops – especially at the beginning of a project. The main objective here is to demonstrate the functionality and handling, including best practices, of the software or infrastructure to be implemented so that the company can successfully handle the software or infrastructure on its own after the roll-out. The infrastructure and the organization, as well as the tools used, differ from customer to customer, which makes each project unique and allows you to learn something new every time.

I first felt the desire to start my journey into the world of IT while watching a friend write a program. I was fascinated how the sorts of logical statements that I knew from mathematics were woven together into commands with various different results. Despite my relatively sparse IT knowledge, cloudWerkstatt gave me the opportunity to make my wish come true. From day one, my new co-workers took me along on exciting journeys of discovery: Microservice architecture makes it possible to deploy new code for a website every few seconds? There are Internet nodes out there with an average monthly maximum data throughput of more than 8 terabits per second? Wow! The biggest challenge for me was and still is finding my way through the jungle of countless tools and technologies. But the enthusiasm (quote from the Curl man page: “the number of features will make your head spin!”) and humor (from the RHCSA study materials: “setfacl -m g:nazgul:rw file|directory”) is what keeps us IT nerds going. Though what motivates me even more is the fantastic team: everyone takes the time to answer my questions and help me out – and the laid-back and appreciative environment is the best. I consider myself lucky to be receiving my training at cloudWerkstatt, surrounded by modern, pioneering open source technologies, and I look forward to sharing the knowledge I gain here with others.
