Please join us to talk about infrastructure as code. Envato have kindly offered to host the September meetup and will supply food and beverages.
David Goodlad (@dgoodlad) - Infrastructure is Secondary
The first step many people take when starting to measure and monitor their systems is to track and alert on data like "system load" and "network throughput". While those things are interesting, they should only be interesting in the context of higher-level information. Measuring how these things affect your users, your customers, should be your real goal, and is the subject of this discussion.
Luke Daley (@ldaley) Gradle - builds as code
One of Gradle's value propositions is that it allows you to approach the building of your software as another software endeavour. That is, it allows you to easily and naturally write code to control how your software builds. This talk will focus on the parts of Gradle that support this goal and some built in bits for integrating with the real world.
Please contact Matt (@geekle) or David (@dlutzy) if you'd like to talk.
