Serverless or not serverless, that is the question....

For the Feb 2020 DevOps North East Meetup we are returning to DXC (thanks guys!) where we have two talks lined up....

Talk 1 - Serverless
Dan Pudwell will talk about Serverless Development at Grid Smarter Cities.
Grid are big on serverless approaches and big on CI/CD using AWS.
Dan has been a software developer for over 10 years in a variety of industries. Currently leading the development effort at Grid Smarter Cities.

Talk 2 - Not serverless
Phil Harle will discuss DevOps with Legacy Applications: A new hope, or just more severs in the cloud?
Phil will run through the journey taken to modernise the platform underpinning one of DWP's top-20 core applications, explaining how a legacy system relying on many servers and sysadmins to 'keep the lights on' was transformed using a DevOps approach. We'll look at some of the technologies used, patterns implemented, and the non-techy/cultural learnings from the project.
Phil Harle is a Lead DevOps Engineer at BPDTS Ltd. He has many years’ experience in technology-focussed roles across government, financial services, higher education and charitable sectors. For just over 2 years he has been working with the Department for Work and Pensions, helping to embed DevOps working practices and tooling to enable transformation of their technology estate.

As usual there will be food, drink and great conversation!

Thanks again to DXC for hosting and also to Sage UK for their on-going support.
