Last night’s three speakers delivered informative and enjoyable presentations – a huge thank you to them for taking the time out of their busy schedules to come and talk to all of us.

The first speaker that we heard from, Praveena Fernandes from Neo4J delivered an insightful and honest presentation ‘Confessions of a microservices developer.’ It was great to hear all about the transformational projects she has worked on and how adopting microservices has helped deliver value to end users reliably. Thanks Praveena – follow her @praveenasekhar

Next up was Irina Bednova from Monzo, speaking about ‘How we use Go to build a distributed bank.’ She spoke about the innovations Monzo are delivering behind the scenes and the tools they’re using to enable them. It was great to hear from someone that works for such a truly innovative company and that is so passionate about their work. Thanks Irina – follow  @jafrog

Last, but by no means least was Ben Hummerstone from Microsoft. His presentation ‘Orchestrating Containers for Fun and Profit’ was really informative and covered some actionable recommendations of how to get started with Linux and Windows containers. Thanks again Ben! Follow @bhummerstone

Another big thanks to Reqiva – once again they provided food and drink for the event, which was gratefully received by the attendees. Also, thanks to the Oxford Trust for allowing us to use your fantastic The Pod venue again for our meetup!

Videos of last night’s presentations will be posted shortly in our Youtube group – so keep an eye out.

We’re looking forward to our next meetup in November, which will cover all things GDPR, follow @DevOpsOxford and @Reqiva to keep up to date and register for the next meet up when it goes live.

Thanks again for attending!
