DOXLON is back in town at our favourite venue of DigitasLBI in Bricklane for our November meetup...

We have a really strong line up announced, including the founder of the Orange County DevOps meetup and ex-Director of Technical Ops for Fox Networks (21st Century Fox/News Corporation) along with the 5th busiest website in the UK discussing their ambitious Cloud Migration journey.

Talk 1: Derek Fowler @ The Trainline

Trainline and AWS CodeDeploy – the story so far

At Trainline we embarked on an ambitious cloud migration journey to AWS around a year ago and as part of this we’ve adopted AWS CodeDeploy as our deployment management mechanism. In this talk I’ll discuss where we’re up to with a focus on some interesting challenges we’ve faced getting CodeDeploy to play nicely with our hosting model.

Derek is a developer on Trainline’s Platform Services team building platform and infrastructure automation tools. He’s worked as a developer and architect for 12 years in a variety of sectors from tourism and ecommerce to medical and financial services with a focus on the Microsoft stack, Azure and AWS.

Talk 2: Matt Chung - ex-Director of Technical Operations @ Fox Networks and Founder of the Orange County DevOps meetup

Serverless application with AWS Lambda

The talk will focus on how we are utilizing AWS Lambda for certain applications and the advantages/disadvantages, and the challenges we discovered along the way. It would help those who are looking to reduce technical debt with the infrastructure and costs.

Previously a Director of technical operations at fox networks (21st Century Fox/News Corporation) responsible for infrastructure and building deployment pipelines.
