What we’re about
Technology platforms let us solve cool and wicked problems while standing on the shoulders of others. This meetup is for those Platform Engineers that love to design, discuss, probe and evangelise the platform technologies and scaled approaches that have helped them make a difference.
This meetup will cover a huge breadth of technology, by doers and for doers, so that we may all learn from each other.
We welcome and celebrate all people working in tech, across every race, ethnicity, country of origin, sexual orientation, visible and invisible ability – we only ask that you have a curious and open mind, and a desire to continuously push and learn!

- The microservice architecture: what good looks like (with Chris Richardson)Needs location
The microservice architecture has become increasingly popular over the past decade. Its key benefits include significantly improving the developer experience and accelerating software delivery. Sadly, however, microservices have often been widely misunderstood and used inappropriately. As a result, many organizations have struggled to benefit from their adoption.
In this presentation I'll describe the key characteristics of the microservice architecture and how it differs from the monolithic architecture. You will learn when you should use microservices and when you should not. I'll describe the ideal developer experience when using the microservice architecture.You will also learn what other changes you must make to your organization when adopting microservices.
Chris Richardson is a developer and architect. He is a Java Champion, a JavaOne rock star and the author of POJOs in Action, which describes how to build enterprise Java applications with frameworks such as Spring and Hibernate. Chris was also the founder of the original CloudFoundry.com, an early Java PaaS for Amazon EC2.
Today, he is a recognized thought leader in microservices and speaks regularly at international conferences. Chris is the creator of Microservices.io, a pattern language for microservices, and is the author of the book Microservices Patterns.
