Despite the London heatwave, we had a decent turnout for our July DevOps Exchange meetup which was once again hosted at the Sainsbury’s HQ in Holborn alongside our partners Linux Recruit. As Tony was away on holiday this month, Colin had the pleasure of hosting the enture event himself this month, and I hear he did a great job!

If you were unable to make the KubeCon Berlin, this is another opportunity to hear from Joseph Jacks, one of the founders of Kismatic (the enterprise Kubernetes company, now Apprenda), and a founder of KubeCon. Joseph discussed native, distributed storage for Kubernetes.
We also heard from Bobby DeVeaux, one of our favourite people in DevOps, who presented his most recent project, a production-ready scalable Docker Swarm using Terraform and Packer. Mangirdas Judeikis from Red Hat provided a deep dive to OpenShift and how it works with containers. Cameron Adams took us through how ITV have been using Docker & Selenium to reduce their build pipeline from 4 hours to 40 minutes.
February DOXLON tackled scaling a massive IOT infrastructure, internal certificate management, and learnings from a DevOps-flavored journey to a culture of innovation. As usual, we learned from some of the best engineering teams out there: EVRYTHING, Smarkets and Ticketmaster.
In this edition of DOXLON, Oliver Beattie from Monzo, a banking app, talked us through their network architecture, how they have secured it, and the lessons they've learned along the way. Chris Sinjakli from GoCardless discussed the importance of reliability, and dove into a recent feature for zero-downtime patch upgrades. Last but not least, Ed Hargin and Kyrylo Novotarskyi from TransferWise talked about their move from a monolithic codebase and shared infrastructure towards independent infrastructure management that is better focused on helping solve customer problems.
This past March, we held our DevOps Exchange London at Marks & Spencer HQ on March 17th. As usual, we had an eventful evening with good chats, networking, pizza and drinks to commemorate St. Patrick's Day. Join DevOps Exchange London Meetup to stay tuned for all future events: DOXLON Meetup.
To kick off 2016 we held our January meetup at Sainsbury's Tech Hub in Holborn, with one of our largest attendances yet! As usual, 3 great talks followed by beer and pizza networking.

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.
This month we held our meetup at the huge IPExpo show in Excel London, who were kind enough to share their keynote stage to host all our attendees. Unfortunately our usual video crew couldn't make it this month meaning we ended up using their recording crew, and somewhere along the lines one of the talks from Channel 4 was lost. Apologies to Channel 4 and our attendees who won't be able to see the great talk they did this month, we've put the slides below for reference.
Last month we did our 4th general DevOps meetup which we held at DigitasLBi'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.
