Beer, Pizza, 150 People and Thought Provoking discussion – LondonDevOps

It was a privilege to host and sponsor the 7th LondonDevOps meetup at our offices. It looked a little ambitious that we would fill all the chairs, let alone consume the wall of beer we had laid on but as you can see by the photos we had a packed house.

It was great to meet so many people with a variety of thoughts and approaches on DevOps. First up to present was Ruxit’s Alois Reitbauer discussing ”
The Dark Art of Building an Alerting System”.

Next up was Gareth Rusgrove from Puppetlabs and DevOps weekly with a thought provoking presentation on the ”
The end of the general purpose operating system”. His deck can be found here.

To help everone digest the information from the presentations it was time for a present from Papa Johns (30 to be precise), more beer and time to discuss those topics and more amongst ourselves. The brave continued on to the bar downstairs.

Following some serious work and grovelling to our cleaner our office returned to it’s usual serene format.

It really was great to see everyone and we can’t wait for the next gathering. Thanks again to our friends at Crane Software for arranging and everyone who attended.
