DevOps Exchange 50th Meetup @ Tech Festival


Wednesday 2nd October, 
It's The DevOps Exchange's 50th Event (it's the 51st actually, but don't tell anyone).

As promised, we always said we would put on a special event for the occasion.

We've partnered with The Tech Festival, a 2 day two-day festival of digital commerce and the technology driving it - 3000 attendees, 800 companies and a ridiculously high calibre list of speakers.


We have three of the hottest Technology companies in the UK at the moment coming to share their DevOps Journeys.

Five.AI, leading the way in the Autonomous Car industry, is coming to discuss how DevOps enables them to get from Keyboard to Cars. Renewable Energy company Bulb will be giving us an overview of the Continuous Delivery of Cloud Infrastructure to enable 4million people to convert to green energy. Red Bee Media, the world leading provider of broadcast and media services, will be discussing Serverless in the sophisticated world of TV.

TALK 1 - 6:30pm

Andy Cowley @ FiveAi 

Title: From cars to keyboards, DevOps at an Autonomous Vehicles company

Bio: Andy is a veteran sysadmin and infrastructure engineer. He is passionate about automation and bringing together developers, engineers, and the infrastructure which binds them, whether they like it or not.

TALK 2 - 6:50pm

Tom Hipwell @ Bulb 

Title: Using Terraform and CircleCI for the continuous delivery of cloud infrastructure.

Bio: Principal Platform Engineer at Bulb, Tom is leading the build out of Bulb’s billing platform, which is key to the firm’s next phase of growth.

TALK 3 - 7:10pm

Paul Markham @ Red Bee Media 

Title: Doing some Serverless to keep TV on the air 

Synopsis: You're used to turning on your TV and everything always being there, whether on a schedule or on demand. That doesn't happen by itself, an enormous amount of work goes into making sure the increasingly sophisticated world of TV "just works" when you expect it to. Paul will use some of your favourite TV shows to tell the story of how a major UK broadcaster had an esoteric requirement with a short timescale, and how Red Bee deployed an AWS Lambda based platform to give them what they needed.

Bio: Paul has worked in TV and Radio technology for over 20 years, chances are you've used something he has worked on.

After the Meetup, there is also a chance for drinks, pizza and a slice of DOXLON cake! Hope to see you all there.

All the best,
