All Episodes

In today’s episode we have the pleasure of Audun Fauchald Strand, Principal Software Engineer at, Norway’s Labour & Welfare Administration. We will be talking about, the application platform that runs on-prem, as well as on the public cloud.

Imagine hundreds of developers shipping on an average day 300 changes into a system which processes $100,000,000 worth of transactions on a quiet week. If you think this is hard, consider the context: a government institution which must comply with all laws & regulations.
