This month we held our meetup at the one of our favourite venues, DigitasLBI. As usual, 3 great speakers followed by beer and pizza afterwards.
Derek Fowler (The Trainline) - Trainline and AWS CodeDeploy , the story so far
At Trainline we embarked on an ambitious cloud migration journey to AWS around a year ago and as part of this we’ve adopted AWS CodeDeploy as our deployment management mechanism. In this talk I’ll discuss where we’re up to with a focus on some interesting challenges we’ve faced getting CodeDeploy to play nicely with our hosting model.
Derek is a developer on Trainline’s Platform Services team building platform and infrastructure automation tools. He’s worked as a developer and architect for 12 years in a variety of sectors from tourism and ecommerce to medical and financial services with a focus on the Microsoft stack, Azure and AWS.
