And we are back!

As usual, we are lining up some great speakers, a great venue thanks to Asos, and free beer/pizza afterwards to meet and discuss.

Talk 1: Rise of the bots: Deploying applications through ChatOps (Charlie de Courcy - Rackspace)

We'll focus on:

• How we're trying to simplify devops for our customers

• Deploying infrastructure through the code

• How chatops has benefited the customer experience

• Using NewRelic to drive autoscaling

• Blue / green deployments

Talk 2: Building a multi-cloud high availability web application with Docker (Vic van Gool - Cloud 66)

In this talk Khash will show what it takes to build a high availability, disaster proof web service hosted on multiple cloud providers and data centres.

Talk 3: The most important users - agile development with operations in mind (Sean Reilly - Equal Experts)

Operations staff are arguably the most important users of your product. They’re the ones who turn it on.

Agile development has taken over the modern software development world, but it’s important to properly handle the way it interfaces with production operations. In this talk, we take a look at one effective way of managing the interaction of operational concerns with development, and as an example show how a traditional feature (logging) gets built designed and build completely differently when you look at it from this perspective.

Please note: This meetup venue is limited to around 200 attendees, so while the RSVP is larger (as we always have dropouts who don't update their RSVP) it will be first come first served at the door if we end up being overcapacity so make sure you keep your RSVP up to date to ensure others don't miss out!
