My name is Nick Triller. I am a passionate software developer working for Axoom in the area of IoT / Big Data in Germany. I live and breathe code and make sure that I am always learning and improving by putting myself in a position to do so.
This blog houses my personal thoughts on software related topics. Some of my favorite subjects to write about are:
- Observability (logging, monitoring, tracing)
- Infrastructure as code
If you enjoy learning about any of these, you will feel right at home here.
I first came into contact with Axoom because they sponsored my thesis paper: "Design of a scalable persistence and data access layer for an industrial-IoT platform".
My employer Axoom provides a platform that facilitates monitoring of industrial machines. Machines or sensor gateways on factory floors are configured to send sensor data to our platform where it is stored.
The data can be analyzed and visualized via a portal that integrates our own offerings (e. g. the Performance Dashboard which visualizes machine utilization), open source products like Kibana and Grafana as well as an ecosystem of third party offerings that we call apps.
