What we're about

The DevOps, Dev and Test Gathering is a free to attend and partake cross-disciplinary meetup community, of over 3000 members across the UK.

We host both in Cambridge and London, with game-changing talks from industry experts and an abundance of networking and knowledge-sharing opportunities.

Expect fascinating talks, free welcome drinks, networking and raffle prizes in an informal, social and inclusive environment.

Our Cambridge events are held at The Cambridge Brew House, stay tuned for updates on future events!

Why we believe knowledge-sharing communities matter

As advancements across the world of digital innovation and business happen at a trailblazing pace. We believe it is essential that new ideas and experiences are continually accessible, for our digital economy and for those aspiring to develop careers in technology.  In addition, human interaction and sharing of our passions should be fun, social and not just about 'work'.

This is the spirit of our community. We welcome experts, practitioners and all of those interested in IT to share their enthusiasm for Cloud Native, Digital Product Development.

Want to take part?

If you work with digital product businesses, and have a story to share you feel would be of interest to the community, please reach out to joel.blackburn@broadlight.io to find out more about getting involved!

The Cambridge DevOps, Dev & Test Meet-Up is an informal community focal point, bringing together technologists of all disciplines to share insights, engage in fruitful discussion, and learn from expert guest speakers within the tech industry.

Each event is free to attend, with a free drink on arrival, and a chance to win a raffle prize!

Ukraine Appeal
We recognise that we are in a privileged position, being able to host trivial and fun events, that are free to attend.

However, with the disgraceful conflict in Ukraine, that is causing unimaginable suffering to millions of colleagues, families, and friends, we feel we must utilise these meetups to garner support for those affected.
We gently ask that if you attend our events, please donate what you can and enjoy the evening, knowing that you have made a contribution that matters.

When is it?
From 6 pm until 9 pm ​on Wednesday the 26th of October 2022.

Where is it?
You will find us in the upstairs room at The Cambridge Brewhouse.
Address: The Cambridge Brewhouse, 1 King Street, Cambridge, CB1 1LH
