Details

‘Round Three’ of the DevOps Battle Royale is going to see the three cloud titans take to the ring in a probably one of the most anticipated and talked about subjects in the tech world … Who is the leading cloud provider??

Myself (Mortimer Spinks) and my amazing partners at Infinity Work are very excited to bring this event to the Manchester community. I know there are a lot of engineers out there who have honed their skills with one of the three providers so it’s going to be great to see/hear the debates during the case studies and workshops.

The meetup is taking place once again at the amazing space at WeWork, No1 Spinningfields on Wednesday 10th October, doors will open at 6pm where pizza (yes the amazing Crazy Pedro will be back) and drinks will be available and the talks will start at 6:30 - 6:45pm.

**Please bring a form of ID and check yourself in at the desk downstairs**

Meet the presenters:
Steven Harper - Principal consultant at Infinity Works - AWS Advocate

James Heggs - Co-founder at CLOS consultancy - GCP Advocate

Sherin Matthews - Azure Architect at IBM | Founder AI-Tech North - Azure Advocate

What you can expect on the night

Food and Drink:
There will as always be a selection of funky pizzas from the one and only Crazy Pedros and a heap of tantalising beverages to wet you whistle, these will be served at 6pm before the talks start.

Overview;
We are going to have our three Cloud experts talk to us on a host of subject areas and the benefits which each platform provider offers to us the the end user. They will be covering some hot topics so be prepared for a ton of extremely insightful and useful knowledge to debate about and take away from the evening.

Workshop;
In true DevOps Battle Royale fashion we will be breaking into our groups which will consist of 'hopefully' a mix of AWS, GCP and Azure users (pick up your sticker on the way in to highlight which platform you favour). Then using a lean coffee/beer format we will then gather the experience of participants to share tips and tricks in making the most of the strengths and minimising the weaknesses of each platform. Really looking forward to some of the discussions, there is certainly plenty to talk about and this will be a great chance for engineers of all levels to learn something new.

Summary;
Then it will be time to crown our champion of ‘Round Three’. We will use the findings from the workshops to determine if the community is most interested in using/products of AWS, GCP or Azure and if so which way does the majority lean with an aim of picking a winner on the night!

Look forward to seeing you on the 10th hopefully we can catch up over a beer and a slice of pizza.

Let the Battle commence !!
