We are uncovering better ways of System Administration by doing it and helping others do it. Through this work we have come to value:

Individuals and interactions over processes and tools
Working server over comprehensive documentation
Customer collaboration over contract negotiation
Responding to change over following a plan

That is, while there is value in the items on the right, we value the items on the left more.

bachelor thesis

Cloud computing is currently one of the biggest and most important growth drivers in IT, whose importance is only growing. This bachelor thesis Future IT Infrastructure describes the technical background of Cloud Computing and links it with a series of exercises in a new information technology module for the Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The exercises are based on a cloud service provider evaluation and an imaginary middle-sized company. It contains eight sessions with topics: Active Directory, Azure VPN, Azure Directory, token-based authentication, SAML protocol, Big Data, web server scaling and configuration management. In addition, a detailed cost analysis on the implementation of this module was performed. Measuring instruments („Testate“) have been designed for instructors to assess each student's grasp of the material. Students who have successfully completed the exercises obtain a deep understanding of Cloud Computing fundamentals, assessing risks and will be able to use it successfully in their own projects.

3D printing or additive manufacturing (AM) is any of various processes of making a three-dimensional object from a 3D model or other electronic data source primarily through additive processes in which successive layers of material are laid down under computer control. My friends and I have build an Ultimaker and currently woking on the further development of it.
