London DevOps #71: Microsoft Reactor

London DevOps #71: Microsoft Reactor


London DevOps is back for the first meetup of 2023 - and it's an exciting one! We will be hosted by Microsoft Reactor and joined by some fantastic speakers.

6:00pm - Arrival Drinks

6:50pm - Introductions - Matt Saunders

7:00pm - A CI/CD Branching Workflow for Mobile Apps - Mohammad Javad

Building and tearing down ephemeral preview deployments has become more and more common in CI/CD pipelines over the past few years. Largely driven by an increase in deploying with containerisation, ephemeral environments improve bug-catching and reduce the feedback loop for new features being developed. Despite the increase of usage in web applications, preview deployments are still a challenge in Mobile Dev. In this talk, we’ll go over the challenges of MobileDevOps and how we’ve created a basic CI/CD pipeline that automatically generates preview deployments to improve the development workflow.

Mo is the Head of Mobile and a Tech Lead at Theodo UK, having worked on several projects with startups and established enterprises to create cross-platform mobile application in React Native. He's passionate about React Native, MobileDevOps, and pushing the boundaries of combining code across web and mobile. Before joining Theodo, Mo was a full-stack developer at Nasdaq. He is a graduate from the University of Edinburgh.

7:45pm - Break

8:15pm - The Serverless Revolution - Liam Hampton

In this talk, Liam will cover an array of topic points from the history of enterprise computing to start-up logistics in today’s world. From this talk, you will understand and learn how technology has transitioned from the traditional compute power of on-premise racks and cloud-hosted virtual machines to the event-driven world of serverless functions and DevOps practices we see today. Liam will explain how they are currently utilised in today’s applications, how he is using them in his daily development, pitfalls to watch out for and how you could be using them too.

9:00pm - Local Pub for Networking
