It’s been a while that we’ve written about new team members, but you may have seen new faces on community events and also names inside the git commits recently. Icinga is a community project after all, but some of usÂ want to do more. Getting access to Icinga’s infrastructure, working on existing tasks and finally tagging a release being proud of your work is enjoyable & fun at once. Contact us if you feel the same!
