This blog post details my project work carried out at the SPLab as an IMS intern. The IMS (Informatikmittelschule) is a type of school for young students (16-20 years old) who aspire to become developers with a business focus. Every IMS student in Switzerland has to participate in an internship in their last year of study.
The Service Engineering research group at InIT hosts every year one or more IMS students from the local schools. Local students are required to finish their apprenticeship with a final exam. The exam, also known as the IPA (Individuelle praktische Arbeit), requires:
- Programming an application or a part of it
- Documenting the process of the project
- Presentation about the process and the result
Since the beginning of my internship, I started working in the CNA-Team (Cloud-Native Applications initiative). I was working mainly with with the following technologies: CoreOS, Fleet, Docker and Kubernetes. We ran our virtual machine clusters on AWS, for which the team has received a research grant from Amazon.
