CFEngine and Covid-19

The ongoing COVID-19 pandemic brings challenging times for many countries, companies, families, and individuals. Therefore we wanted to make a brief statement about the state of our operations.

The CFEngine team has offices in Norway and the USA, as well as remote workers in Italy and other European countries that are all currently experiencing various levels of lock-down. We made a decision last week that we would encourage all our employees to work from home and our offices are now temporarily closed.

Our parent company, Northern.tech, has focused on autonomy and being a remote-friendly organization for a long time. This focus and experience, fortunately, makes the current situation easier to manage. We do not anticipate a large disruption in our operations due to this decision. You can read more about our view on remote work on our company website.

We continue to develop our products, create new releases and support our customers as usual. New releases are imminent, and there is much to look forward to. 

If your operations are affected by the current situation, please let us know if there is anything we can assist you with during this time.

Lastly, we will not participate in any physical meet-ups, we will not attend any conferences or host any training on-premises in the immediate future. Please reach out to us if you would like an online training, meeting or another contact point.

We encourage everyone to listen to their government’s advice, take all needed precautions, and stay safe and healthy through this challenging time.
