Cloud Native: Blessing or SRE Curse?
11th December, Huckletree Auditorium - Shoreditch
Join us for an exclusive panel discussion and Q&A for senior level software engineers to discuss Cloud Native and whether it's a blessing or SRE curse. Cloud Native is all the rage today; every large cloud computing provider or bastion of IT technology is promoting it. It's a blessing, allowing easier scaling, easier automation and a path to designing 'best practice' architectures, with everything all in one place and under one roof. Or is it a blessing in disguise? What might be great for a CTO's business mindset might be a curse for a SRE.
2020 is here…
So keep an eye out for our next event :)
We're open to ideas for our next meetup. Another live coding challenge? Or maybe - after the success of 'Cloud Native: Blessing or SRE Curse' - we could have another panel discussion. 'Total Reproducibility - Fighting the Tooling or The Right Thing?' or 'Containers - are they an anti-pattern? Why POP (plain-old processes) might be the right way to go' are two topics on the tips of our tongues... get in touch if you want to have a say!
