Katy Campbell’s role as a Manager at Porsche Digital is supporting the various founders at FWRD31 and mentoring their businesses throughout the partnership. By doing so, she highly advocates for mental health awareness in the workplace, inspiring her colleagues and business partners.

That is a hard one! I want to say flexibility, as we are working with startups — which means things are constantly evolving. However, at the same time, I think it is so crucial to be as open-minded as possible. …


We got a new look, but there is more to it: How we rebranded Porsche Digital to visualize our core mission; creating value and excitement through digital engineering.

I have always been fascinated by the idea to find a way to represent peoples’ lives through sound — or, to have kind of a “sound companion” that would create musical structures according to what I am doing, at a given time. It would know about my current mood, the situation I am in, the activity I go for. Something so custom and tailored, almost like…


The end of the COVID-19 pandemic is not yet in sight. Still, we think it is a good moment to reflect on what will remain of the new work processes, how our work has changed in 2020 — and how looking at structures from a distance creates new perspectives.

For many months now, it has been quiet in most of our offices around the globe — from Ludwigsburg to Tel Aviv and Silicon Valley, just to name a few. Where once the walls were covered with notes, sketches, and ideas, there is now a safe distance and contact restrictions. My…

How to choose between cookie-based (Application Load Balancer) and token-based (API Gateway) authentication? In this article, Porsche Digital DevOps Engineer Aşkın Aşkın compares authentication on ALB and API Gateway.

Authentication is one of the most complicated topics for developers. It is needed to implement many features, from forgot password to SMS verification or Two-Factor-Authentification (2FA). However, with the latest technologies and services, a secure authentication system is simpler to implement than ever before. AWS Cognito is an authentication as a service just like Auth0 or others —but its main advantage is its integration with other AWS services.
