With all the success of our last Behind The Buzz Word - it's only right we get #8 on the go.
We're very fortunate that on this occasion we're being sponsored by Sorted - who'll be providing the venue, as Dave Blencowe (CTO at Viddyoze) will be delivering us a hands on experience with a Kubernetes cluster, giving us the chance to make services talk to each other and see it in action, rather than going on a major deep dive.
This is the last Buzz Word of the year, so we'll be adjourning to a bar afterwards for Christmas drinks.
For those who haven't been before - our format is extremely simple:
Behind The Buzz Word is a software development kata run by Reed Technology for those who're looking to get hands on with the latest technologies.
The event is designed to allow you to get hands on with the latest technologies that can add value to your stack. By using a kata format, you're able to be introduced to something new and then really get stuck in with it - all you need to do is bring your laptop.
The introduction to the new technologies is provided by the best possible speakers. Remaining language agnostic, so you can interact with the new tech however you develop, we offer a fair and open opportunity for those of all skill sets to experience something new, brush up on skills, or even learn a new approach from those around you.
This isn't designed to be a super serious, heads down event. The flow is loose, collaboration is encouraged, as long as you feel like you've gained new knowledge then we're happy.
