DevOps Top Meetups: Tecknuovo’s DevOps Community Meetup & Event Schedule January 2019

Happy New Year from the Tecknuovo team! As promised, we are publishing a curated list of DevOps and Cloud related Meetups in London every month. Follow us on @Tecknuovo or LinkedIn and be the first to know about upcoming Meetups.

We’re back after a whirlwind holiday season. According to the “Rules of Modern Living”, now is the time to set “New-Year New-Me goals”. We will opt in for attending at least two Meetups a month. What about you?

Here are three reasons why attending more meetups will help you grow in 2019:

  • It will help you become a part of the awesome DevOps community in London, find a mentor and make new friends.
  • It’s a cheap way to learn new skills and widen your area of expertise.
  • It will help you stay up to date with the ever-changing technology landscape.

On top of that, a January filled with exciting post-work Meetups will help you power through the upcoming Blue Monday (21st January). Meetup’s “Free Food Promise” will also save you some money! So join us this month and meet with other like-minded people passionate about tech. Have fun, share knowledge and make new friends!

We are going to be there, so don’t be shy, come find us and say hello! (>’-‘)>
