KarieraPlus jobfair is the biggest fair of its kind in the Czech Republic. About 100 companies from various industries presented themselves (±10 of them were from the field of IT) this year. About 5 000 visitors attended, interested in jobs of all kinds of industries. We are lucky that the fair takes place in Ostrava, the location of profiq’s Software Engineering Centre of Excellence. We decided to attend for the first time in the history.
Hello. Quite a while ago I was given a task to create a java module which would be able to create customized clones from existing virtual machines, managed by vSphere. Main focus was on creating clones, which has unique network settings so all machines can be used for testing at once on same network. To do this, I utilized an open source java library called VIJAVA , which is a Java API to VMWare infrastructure. It offers you pretty big set of operations, which you can do on top of the VMWare infrastructure. In this post I will focus only on cloning task with customized specification.
First of all, with a New Year, we wish everyone to start 2015 on the right path to success and happiness!
Having no options for employment and career building is one of the common themes I’m hearing from Software Engineers in the Ostrava region. There is a few employers with a limited variety of technology projects. We are introducing a new alternative you can consider: innovative engineering projects for agile software houses in the Silicon Valley. Would you consider it?
“Silicon Valley is more of a state of mind than a physical location. It has no large monuments, magnificent buildings or ancient heritage. There are no tours of companies or venture capital firms. From Santa Clara to South San Francisco it’s 45 miles of one bedroom community after another. Yet what’s been occurring for the last 50 years within this tight cluster of suburban towns is nothing short of an “entrepreneurial explosion” on par with classic Athens, renaissance Florence or 1920’s Paris.
(Hackers Guide to Silicon Valley by Steve Blank, 2011)
The demand for profiq’s services from Silicon Valley based hi-tech companies is increasing. This brings new opportunities for technical talent in the Ostrava region. People started seeing us as a competitive alternative to existing IT vendors on the job market of the region, even before moving to Ostrava. Opening a new engineering center in Ostrava increases our dedication to being the alternative.
Most of all, we are now even closer (couldn’t be any closer than that :) ) to university students to enable them to work on technically challenging projects. We welcome fresh graduates with IT background, who are eager to bring innovation in technology to life.
Please visit us to have a chat in person over a coffee or tea. We are interested in hearing from you and ready to share things that you may be interested in hearing about us. You can find us just next to Technical University of Ostrava at premises of Business Incubator on Studentska 6202/17, Ostrava – Poruba:
Here comes a testing focused article after a series of technical blogs! It is based on experience with projects managed through waterfall processes and it continues the series about tackling test complexity.
It is about a luxury that we so often ask for and we often don’t have in testing: to be involved early in the product development process. What does it mean actually to be involved early in the process? Why is it so important? And how does it help tackling test complexity anyway?
