Self-Hosted GitLab Server

When we started out, the cloud-hosted instance of GitLab served all of our needs perfectly. Today, we’ve outgrown that shared infrastructure and are now moving to a self-managed GitLab installation running on a server privately hosted right here in Germany.

The “HSE-ify DQMH Module” Tool

Over the last few years, we not only used DQMH very heavily, but we also started building additional features around the DQMH core.

HSE Summit 2021

#teamhampelsoft has outgrown a single collocated office, so we’re not able to meet everybody in person on a regular basis. Even for those of us living in the same region, the pandemic has rendered physical meetings inappropriate.
