    I would love to attend but given the huge numbers and waitlist it looks unlikely - looking forward to seeing the video!

    Great talk Russ, it's good to see many emerging patterns, being opinionated, and finally getting some meat on how these systems work in real life.

    Fantastic talk... Real eye opener for me. Looking forward to more talks on data architecture to support microservices and tell works approaches to working with legacy backends.

    Hi everyone,

    Can you make sure you have de-registered for this meet up if you can't make it? We've a lot of people waiting on the wait-list who would love to come and so I'd like to be able to open that up if anyone is considering not coming.
