January Talk Double Header

Thursday 17th January 6:30pm at On the Beach offices, Aeroworks

We are lucky this month to have two visiting speakers from Berlin. The two talks are

BOSH: A Distributed System Management Solution

BOSH is infrastructure-as-code tooling that aims to makes releasing, managing and monitoring highly distributed (i.e. service-oriented/distributed systems) a breeze. In this talk, Lucas Krebs-Pinto will give a portrait of BOSH. We'll see in particular what it is good for, how it works and why you might consider it to help orchestrate your infrastructure.

 Dev vs. Product...

... Or how devs can work on cool technologies and learn things while bringing value to the company, by Fanny Krebs-Pinto.
