When the Master Becomes the Teacher: Congrats, Julian, on your Master of Science Degree in Computer Science!

Copy of BLOG IMAGE TEMPLATE - 960 x 600 (7)

The No-IP team is proud to share that one of our Software Engineers, Julian Vu, received his Master of Science Degree in Computer Science from the Georgia Institute of Technology, one of the top engineering schools in the country!

To say that Julian is an asset to the Development team would be an understatement, and the fact that he worked full-time at No-IP while going to school part-time is truly a testament to his intelligence and commitment. Although he is entertaining the idea of pursuing a Ph.D., he teaches Computer Science part-time at Truckee Meadows Community College. Julian shared that:

“I eventually realized that I’ve always derived a great deal of intrinsic value in teaching others what I know, and a master’s degree would give me the depth of knowledge and the credentials to teach college students. As luck would have it, that is exactly what I’m doing now!”

The subjects Julian learned during his studies are truly fascinating. In his Information Security class, he learned about the nuances of cybersecurity and the offensive and defensive techniques used in computer systems today. However, it made him quite paranoid about anything tech related. Julian also discovered that his classes both pushed and challenged his way of thinking.

For example, the most interesting and thought-provoking class he took was Human-Computer Interaction. In this class, he studied how people interact with technology, from digital touch screens on a smartphone to the mechanical levers and wheels in a car. It gave him a different perspective on the software he develops, and he now finds himself thinking, “Is this something a user would find intuitive?”. This is certainly useful as the No-IP team strives to make our products as user-friendly as possible.

As to his plans for the future, Julian says he is happy to have a break from school and is still open to pursuing his Ph.D. Whatever he chooses to do, the No-IP team is incredibly proud of him and excited to see what he accomplishes next!

Congrats, Julian!

May the Fourth Be With You: Happy Star Wars Day From No-IP!

May the Fourth blog image

May the Fourth be with you! It’s Star Wars Day, and we’re feeling the Force here at No-IP. As the rebels of the internet, we know a thing or two about fighting against the dark side. And just like the Jedi, we’re always looking for ways to improve our skills and stay ahead of the game.
So, in honor of this galactic holiday, we’re taking a look at some of the ways No-IP can help you protect your internet empire and keep the Sith at bay.

First up, our Dynamic DNS service. Just like the Millennium Falcon, your IP address can be a bit unpredictable. But with No-IP’s Dynamic DNS, you can assign a fixed domain name to your dynamic IP address and keep your online presence on track. Plus, our service updates your IP address automatically, so you can focus on more important things—like training to become a Jedi Knight.

Next, our Remote Access solutions. With No-IP’s remote access products, you can access your devices and networks from anywhere in the galaxy. Whether you’re on a mission to defeat the Empire or just need to check on your security cameras from your X-wing, No-IP has you covered.

And finally, our Managed DNS service. Just like the Rebel Alliance, your website needs to be up and running at all times. With No-IP’s Managed DNS service, you can ensure that your website is always available and responsive.

So, there you have it. No-IP’s solutions can help you defend your online empire against any threat, from the dark side of the Force to pesky DNS errors. May the Fourth be with you, and may your internet journey be full of adventure, excitement, and most importantly, no latency.

May the Force (and No-IP) be with you!
