Doors open at 18.00 for a 18.15 start.
This month we have a special out-of-town guest speaker. Please note that this meetup is on a Tuesday, not our regular Thursday.
Main talk: How Platforms Work – Casey West
Platforms: either you have one or you’re building one. Over the years Casey has observed six high-level characteristics common to production environments which are operationally mature. This talk will explain in detail the six capabilities in an operationally mature production environment. Casey will also demo these capabilities live.
Working in Internet infrastructure, web app security, and design taught Casey to be a paranoid, UX-oriented, problem solving Internet plumber; his earliest contributions to Perl live to this day on your Mac. Casey’s speaking and writing ranges from open source communities and culture to technical architecture and automation tips and tricks. Casey West wears the mantle of Principal Technologist focused on Pivotal’s Cloud Foundry Platform and lives in Pittsburgh raising three sarcastic children.
