Following on from an eventful All Hands on DevOps #3 we are pleased to be announcing the date and venue for our fourth All hands on DevOps meetup. We are lining up some amazing speakers for this event and will announce to the group as soon as they are confirmed.
This is an event not to be missed out on particularly as we become known for the fiery questions and answers section alongside a great post meetup networking pub (Tanner & Co.)! We hope to see you all here to help us all continue on our DevOps journey.
The rough format for the evening will be:
18:30 - Welcome drinks
19:15 - Talk one - Mika Boström, VP of Engineering @ SMarkets.
Mika is a Lifelong automation and security advocate, Systems wizard. He tolerates most things except intolerance and faults!

BOSH - Twenty Years of Deployment Lessons in One Tool
The history of distributed systems deployment and orchestration is an epic tragedy of pain and loathing. The Cloud Foundry community has taken an alternative path, choosing an unorthodox strategy to deploy the complex distributed system powering the world's most successful open-source platform.
This talk examines the reasons behind that choice, examines the tooling at the heart of the new strategy, and looks at how you can use the tooling for your own distributed deployments. We will also review the latest developments and the intended roadmap for the "Marmite" of orchestration tooling - you either love it or hate it - BOSH
20:45 - More refreshments etc.
21:00 - Head to Tanner & Co for more networking...
