Dev and DevOps Top Meetups: Tecknuovo’s Dev and DevOps Community Meetup & Event Schedule April 2019
Happy April Everyone! Personally, it’s my favourite month of all! Why? Well, the sun is out, nature is blooming, but most importantly Me and Dom are both born in April! So to celebrate getting old, we’re officially expanding our coverage due to the popularity of our Meetup Calendar, and we will now cover Dev meetups as well!
Meetup Highlights for April:
After their Kubentines edition in February, Kubernetes Meetup is finally back. As usual, Ivan Pedrazas and Milos Gajdos will welcome us with some seasonal jokes and an amazing line-up of speakers from Google, Shopify, ControlPlane and Ticketmaster! The attendance list is full, but don’t give up and try to jump on the waitlist.
Next up is Microservices Meetup which is going through some serious revival! Last month there were over 150 people attending at Gamesys, this month we will all meet at Farfetch. Dario tends to keep his speaker list secret till the week before, so make sure to register earlyif you’re a microservices fan.
Finally, don’t forget to keep your eye out for the RSVP list opening to attend the London DevOps Meetup! This one always gets full quickly and there is a reason for it. We will send the tweet out once the list is open.
Meetup Mates Update
Finally, we’ve officially launched pre-registrations to join Meetup Mates – an online community for everyone who wants to attend meetups but doesn’t have anyone to go with, or simply wants to make new friends with other Meetup communities in London. Me and Dom are now looking for 50 brave sailors (yes it’s a pirate-themed community) to help us test the waters before our official launch in June. So if you’re up for being one of the founding members, register now to be our mate! 🙂
Here are all the amazing events happening in London this month. We are going to be there, so don’t be shy, come find us and say hello! ༼ つ ◕_◕ ༽つ

I guess it’s a three-day meetup marathon! Cloud Native will, as usual, be held at CodeNode, and bring to us some amazing speakers from Component Soft, Bristol University and CodiLime.

Henrique Rodrigues, Principal DevOps at Direct Line Group (Darwin); Yitian Xu, Solution Architect at Alibaba Cloud UK, and Chris Evans Platform Team Lead at Monzo.

If you’re into a more hands-on meetup experience, join this month’s SEAM Meetup to participate in a group experiment! Whether you’re new to Enterprise Agility or are an experienced practitioner, whether you’re in a leadership position or involved in hands-on technical delivery, come along and join SEAM Meetup at Stack Overflow’s London HQ! Find out more on the meetup page.
This one you cannot miss. London DevOps always brings great speakers and is an awesome first step to become an active participant in the DevOps Community in London. Every month, London DevOps Group members meet to discuss anything and everything about DevOps such as Automation, Orchestration, Containers, Virtualisation, Service Discovery, Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery. Register early to avoid the waitlist!
Testing microservices is challenging. Dividing a system into components (à la microservices) naturally creates inter-component dependencies, and each service has its own performance and fault-tolerance characteristics that need to be validated during development, the QA process, and continually in production. Attend this meetup to learn about the theory, techniques, and practices needed to overcome this challenge.
If you’re looking to meet fellow Python/Django developers or just want to find out more about Django, make sure to check out this meetup. This month find out more about two different approaches to decomposing a Django monolith into multiple services, with Lim Hoang from Deliveroo. To attend this meetup, make sure to register via Skills Matter.
The London Node.js User Group (LNUG) is the longest standing Node.js meetup in London and has been hosting first-class events for over 4 years. LNUG has welcomed speakers from all around the world and over time built up a truly global audience. If you’ve never been, make sure to register early to hear from Simon Brichall about Bootstrapping a startup with SailsJS, and Colin Eberhardt explaining how to build your own WebAssembly Compiler.
SEAM is the monthly Study of Enterprise Agility Meetup. This Meetup is focussed more on the enterprise side of technology, so if you’re interested in what organisations are attempting to achieve as well as how to go about it, this Meetup is perfect for you. Seam #25 will focus on 3 different perspectives relating to the transformation of Financial Services.
