Welcome to the Thoughts section of my blog. Thoughts are better kept on my blog than on Twitter or other online platforms.

The German government tasked SAP and Deutsche Telekom with the development of an open-source contact tracing app (named “Corona-Warn-App”) using the APIs from Google and Apple. Now they’ve published the code for the backend server. I took a quick look at the code and I’m quite a bit surprised about the quality and best practices used. They are using the Java-based Spring framework and use Postgres and minio to store data. Everything running in Docker. Even the Docker images are build using multi-stage Dockerfiles.
