VikingCo is not your everyday company. As part of VikingCo, which also markets CityLife, our core business is telecoms. But that might just be a cover-up for our alternative development initiatives, and building an innovative ecosystem which goes beyond classic telco services. Hence our embracing the likes of Django and Python. VikingCo prefers to do things its own way (Mobile Vikings have been called stubborn), so we are developing our own top notch software platform allowing us to offer additional services to our Vikings and CityLifers, and easily integrate with partners in our ecosystem. To this day we also keep upgrading our free mobile apps (the awesome Viking App and CityLife App). But we’re open-minded too: sharing knowledge is our belief. Maybe you’re already familiar with some of our open source repositories (django datatrans, django advanced reports or django states)? VikingCo always seeks the win-win within its ecosystem. Just ask Ingenico, Connective, or Sparkcentral. Our people are so much more than devs: obviously they code, but they’re given the opportunity to lead projects and the freedom to put forward projects as well. This may sound cocky, but, just as we lead the mobile revolution, our ambition is to go above and beyond in platform development as well. We’re facing a huge challenge. Don’t miss out.
Opbeat is the application monitoring platform built for Django that combines performance metrics, release tracking, and error logging into a single simple service. It integrates with Git, and sets up in minutes.
The guys and girls from Opbeat are working hard to simplify the post-shipping workflow, and are active members of Django Copenhagen. They consume substantial amounts of coffee in the process.
Opbeat will be sponsoring the coffee at this year’s Django: Under the Hood, and will be recognisable by their coffee-pot t-shirts.
If you see a member of the Opbeat crew please feel free to give them a refill.
