Is that time of the semester where I have to reflect on everything I know and everything I did. This course was interesting because I had the opportunity to dive deep into different topics and the opportunity to learn and even try different new tools.
DevOps – A jack of all trades?
Being a DevOps engineer has become a popular topic nowadays. Companies are looking for DevOps instead of specific people for sys-admin, network management, DB-admin, etc. They look for a Jack of all trades. But, what is, in reality, DevOps?
Software Quality: The tools to do the right work
Software development is a profession where the least you need is a computer with a notepad and a compiler (or interpreter).
