Summer is upon us, rejoice!

Summer is here! The hottest of the seasons has finally arrived (commuters of the Central Line, please ignore this last statement, it's always summer in the red line) for the delight of everybody: Picnics in one of the many parks of London, sipping Pimms and complaining about the latest YAML validation error. A quick escape to the many beaches in the UK (one of the advantages of living on an island), or just a few commits to your favourite Open Source project.

Since London has not been able to provide us with any sun this summer so far, we've decided to make some flair right in the cloud so come to our next Meetup at Cloudflare!

Please join us on the 2nd of July for a new bunch of talks about development. We will see how Earlang and Kubernetes can be good friends with our good friend David. Also, all the way from scorching Madrid, Ramiro will show us how to do Cloud Native Development, and finally, a panel about Development where we will not discuss the right way of pronouncing kubectl nor if tabs are better than spaces. A session about developers, for developers.

This event would not be possible without our marvellous sponsors: OpenShift and Cloudflare.


6:00 - 7:00 Socialise, make friends, eat, drink and be merry.

Name: David Jeche
Title: Boxes within boxes: Beam2Kube
I have been working information technology for as long as I can remember. I am an architect, Operation developer and a curious engineer. Distributed systems tickle my fancy and fuel my belief in that we the OSS community are here to save the world. I have worked in many places but the best things I have done have always come from my bedroom.

We are going to explore Erlang, Beam and Kubernetes. These are two conflicting technologies, that seem to compliment each other. We will explore them individually while we review how they integrate to bring happiness to both developers and operations. We will close on the benefits of running both of these tools in unison.

We may show a small demo if time permits.

Name: Ramiro Berrelleza
Title: Cloud Native Development
Ramiro Berrelleza is the co-founder and CEO of Okteto. He has spent the last 10 years of his career building cloud services and developer tools. Previously, Ramiro was an Architect at Atlassian and a Software Engineer at Microsoft Azure.

Kubernetes has made it very easy to deploy applications to the cloud at a higher scale than ever. Projects like Knative, Istio, Envoy and Open Policy Agents enable us to run applications at a very high scale, with incredibly complex network and access rules. But at the same time, they make it really hard to develop and test locally. This pain goes away if we develop our cloud-native applications directly int the cluster.
In this talk, Ramiro will explain the concept of cloud-native development, the benefits and challenges of this approach, the different tools available for this and how we implement it at @Okteto
