The reason why …
… we started that blog: We DO a lot of fascinating technology in a very resource and constraints-intensive environment and we started doing that more than 15 years ago. For several reasons we never had time to share and show what we have done and how we have setup the systems. This MUST come to an end.
We do serve a lot of major European portals and advertisement customers, we run around 500 Billion requests per month, everything engineered and operated in Germany (Freiburg, Hamburg, Berlin mainly) with a high open-source mindset in place. We did grow up and run several engineering teams focussed on different aspects of the digital marketing chain with certain experience and know-how in place.
Whenever we read articles on the internet how somebody created some services, some geeks asked why we don’t write and share such stories too. And they are right! We do have to share – we embrace open source – and we will start posting about what we have successfully implemented and how we do development and tech leadership soon. Be prepared, stay tuned!
If you want to know more, get in touch with us, discuss with us please ping us either here or on any other social site, we are open to any kind of feedback. This is the first step of our journey to give back what we have learned, to live the open source idea. We invite all of you to join and participate!
I’m Tom, the CTO of the Virtual Minds Group and I’m happy to get in touch with you!
