About this event

Hello Microservices enthusiasts,

I am excited to announce our next meetup on March 15th.

Casey Bisson from Joyent will be our guest speaker. We were lucky to be one of the stops on Casey’s east coast meetup roadshow. He has a very entertaining and educational presentation for us: What all the Sci-Fi movies have taught us about the modern-day DevOps practices.

Event Details: 

The venue and food/beverages are sponsored by Liberty Mutual. Special thanks to Andrew and Racheal @ Liberty Mutual for helping set up this event.

Abstract:  Sci-Fi DevOps

Applications in the movies deploy and scale with the touch of a button, with no concern for cloud infrastructure or even CPU architecture. Is that really science fiction, or have we been doing it wrong all along? What can we learn from sci-fi movies—and the sources that inspired them—about building applications today? Is it possible to build apps that deploy, scale, and self-heal on any infrastructure?

Q/A & Networking: 7.40 – 8 PM
