Let’s all go cloud native!

Our next Meetup is on January 25, 2017.   To attend, RSVP here –> https://www.meetup.com/Coed-Code/events/236091037/

This meetup will be all about how to get started with some of the exciting new tech for developing amazing apps.

We’ll kick off with a fantastic presentation:

“Getting the Cloud Business Ready”

Initially, cloud technologies were all about the infrastructure. But infrastructure is a funny thing because infrastructure becomes a commodity. This is why we’re at the edge of Cloud hitting its peak — and its first best use — via the platform layer. Abby Kearns will discuss the future of cloud technologies, what drives enterprises to adopt these technologies in droves, and which development languages matter now, more than ever, and why.

Speaker: Abby Kearns, Executive Director, Cloud Foundry Foundation

A true tech veteran, Abby’s 18 year career has spanned product marketing, product management and consulting at a mix of Fortune 500 and startup companies. As the first fellow at Cloud Foundry Foundation and VP of Strategy, Abby was responsible for structuring and executing operational and strategic initiatives, as well as leading the User Advisory Board and Industry Special Interest Groups. Prior to joining the Foundation, she was part of the Product Management team at Pivotal, focusing on Pivotal Cloud Foundry. Previously, Abby led a Product Management and Product Marketing team at Verizon that focused on cloud services.

We’ll be following this with a panel discussion, featuring a great group of panelists, including:

Diane Mueller-Klingspor

Diane currently works as a Community Lead at Red Hat on their Kubernetes-based container application platform, OpenShift Origin.

Bridget McErlean

Bridget is a Software Engineer at Bitnami.

I Learned About Software From That

get ready for what

May the Fourth be With You

We’re on our 3rd COED:CODE Meetup and the date has been set to May 4 and it will be kindly hosted by Pivotal at Bentima House near Old Street Roundabout. Join us at 6pm.

This month we’re doing more of the popular white board sessions, with gentle learning curves and community participation. Of course we’ll have lovely health snacks again, and plenty of time to meet people rather than being talked at. We’re going to try an open mic experiment because we all have useful experiences to share. So what is the theme?

I Learned About Software from That

Anne Currie and Bryan Boreham will kick off proceedings with some stories about lessons learned, and how they learned them. Our very own Gen Ashley will be compere for the evening. We hope you’ll share some experiences too.

Anne – what I learned about thread safety (why x++ doesn’t play nicely).

Bryan  – how one failure triggered multiple restarts
– each component wanted to download its data from the central store at start-up
– “thundering horde” hit the central store and total meltdown

Thundering horde sounds scary, but don’t worry Bryan definitely isn’t. Please come – we cant wait to meet you.
