Talk 1:
Introduction to a new generation of Cloud Native Infrastructure Platform
by Stephane Jourdan (SquareScale)

With nearly 70% of organizations either using or investigating microservices, Cloud Native design structures are becoming a major trend now. Still, this evolution also has its downsides, bringing a lot of complexity for smaller teams as microservice-based apps are naturally more complicated to manage than traditional “monoliths”.
For smaller teams, successfully managing complexity is critical. Each team member needs to understand more of the whole system than a larger team and microservices can exacerbate the problem.
SquareScale develops an new generation of automated containers scheduling platform (PaaS) that enables DevOps to set up and deploy a cloud-based, fully configured IT infrastructure even without expert skills in system administration - in just a couple of clicks, and within minutes.

After telling us through video call about his vision of the future and why he founded the company and decided to disrupt his own job, Montreal-based Stephane will give us a tour of the solution and unveil (part of) its internal architecture.

Note: Part of the SquareScale team will also attend the meetup and be available for further talks after the session.

About Stephane:
Passionate entrepreneur, Stephane co-founded three companies since 2010. Building upon past experience gathered in a global environment of reducing web infrastructure costs, scaling better and implementing the right technologies for players like Alcatel-Lucent or Bureau Veritas on successful projects, Stephane co-founded SquareScale, a French Canadian IT company creating the next generation of infrastructures. He currently is CEO of the company.

Talk 2:
