GNU/Linux wireless networking like it's 2020

How to add some systemd stuff inside your network configuration

From netcl to iwd πŸ“‘ ArchLinux is installed on my laptop (an XPS 15) since I got it from my job in 20171. 3 years ago, the cli tool distributed within the distribution was netctl.

I wanted some fresh air, and even if I really liked Python back to that time, i’m more into statically typed programming languages. [Read More]

DevOps, IaC, AGILE, SCRUM, Containers, SysOps, CI/CD, microservices, serverless, FAAS Yes, it’s a buzzwords shitstorm but all of these concepts summarize how software development and deployment evolves. Do i think that sysadmins time is over ? No. But time as come, we, as sysadmins, have to adapt to this moving industry. Accept it or die, but cloud computing is the norm now.
