About this event

Hello Microservices enthusiasts,

Hope everyone is staying cool in this hot summer.

After a couple of months of break, we are back with our next meetup. I have been asking the team at Pivotal labs to present at one of our meetups for a while and finally the schedules lined up. And like our past few meetups, Pivotal has agreed to host us again.  


Thanks to the Pivotal Labs team for offering to host our event at their office in Cambridge.

Meetup Agenda:

Introduction: Ajit Umrani (Ex-President of Assembla, currently looking for new opportunities)  

Featured Guest Speaker:  John Fergusson, Platform Architect, Pivotal Labs


When Netflix open sourced many of their internal projects, they were designed to help others in the community get up to speed faster on building microservices. However, they can be challenging to set up and take advantage of. In collaboration with the Spring Framework, some of the critical Netflix OSS projects were turned into Spring Boot applications. Come learn about how Netflix and Spring are making it easier to stand up your own microservice architecture and get building faster. 


John Ferguson is a Platform Architect for Pivotal and longtime Spring Framework user. He works with customers to understand how to architect and design their systems to take advantage of the latest advancements in technology. A native of Boston, he loves when he can share with local engineers the trials and tribulations of building distributed systems.


Address: Pivotal Labs, 145 Broadway, Cambridge MA 02142

It's at the corner of Broadway and Galileo Galilei Way. It's easily accessible by public transport. There is metered parking on broadway and a paid lot next door called "the blue garage".
