This month's DOXLON had another great lineup for those interested in Container Orchestration and Microservices, including a headline talk all the way from the US via Video link from the legendary Kelsey Hightower, talking about Istio, a powerful service mesh framework for Kubernetes and Microservices. In addition we had great talks from James Rasell talking about the container solution they built at Elsevier using Nomad, and Graem Forbes at Infitity Works who walked us through productionising a new application on Docker on a very tight deadline.

As usual, another great meetup, followed by the usual beers and pizza and pub down the road! Our next meetup will be on July 27th, see you there!
