To get the ball rolling I'm going to be kicking off the user group with an inaugural meet up at Skills Matter on Thursday 12th June, 2014. The title of the talk is "Separating Fact from Fiction: What do Microservices really look like?" and it's going to be a real show-and-tell on the challenges of building a microservices-based system.
I hope you can join me for this event!
"The origin of species: evolution and innovation"
In this talk, Gawain Hammond will explain why your toe cheese is more innovative than you, what can make you better at innovation, and how to help your organisation to reap the benefits. We have a lot to learn from bacteria, they have survived for millions of years, far longer than your company. But what characteristics ensure success? And how can microservices help us emulate their success against all the odds?
