This month we did our 3rd general DevOps meetup which we held at ASOS's great offices in London. 3 more great speakers and a great attendee turnout, it was great to see lots of regulars, and also many new faces for beers and pizza afterwards.
Our next meetup will be on 27th August and you can sign up here.

Vic van Gool (Cloud 66) - Building a multi-cloud high availability web application with Docker
In this talk Vic shows what it takes to build a high availability, disaster proof web service hosted on multiple cloud providers and data centers.
Sean Reilly (Equal Experts) - The most important users - agile development with operations in mind
Operations staff are arguably the most important users of your product. They’re the ones who turn it on.
Agile development has taken over the modern software development world, but it’s important to properly handle the way it interfaces with production operations. In this talk, we take a look at one effective way of managing the interaction of operational concerns with development, and as an example show how a traditional feature (logging) gets built designed and build completely differently when you look at it from this perspective.
