☀️ DEVUX is getting ready for an awesome 2018! Winter may still be here, but don’t despair. We have an awesome lineup of speakers to entertain and free pizza and refreshments to warm you up! 🍕🍕🍕

This month we are at Pusher (, a leader in realtime APIs who count innovative companies like the New York Times, Lyft, InVision, Mailchimp as some of their clients. We'll be talking about containerisation on the backend using tools such as Kubernetes and Docker, and how the same principles might also work for containerised apps on the desktop.

▶️ Talk 1: What is a Kubernetes and why would I want one? (Jonathan Lloyd)


The way we deploy software in the cloud is changing faster every day. Unless you spend all day "scaling up the pods" you can get lost amongst all the new tech. If you've ever wondered "what is a Kubernetes and why would I want one?" This is the talk for you.

▶️ Talk 2: Containerising desktop applications (Drew & Krzysztof)


Drew & Krzysztof of startup On Point ( will be talking us through how their startup is taking the same principles of containerisation and making them work for containerisation of apps on the desktop.
