The next Brighton Java event will be on Wednesday 26th January, when
there will be a talk on 'Kubernetes in the data centre: theory vs
reality'. The full talk description is below; food and drink at the
event will be supplied by our sponsors, Brandwatch.
Please sign up via meetup:
The event will take place at the Brandwatch offices in North Laine, and
doors open at 6:30pm. JVM developers of all levels are very welcome.
For our February meeting, Luke Whiting will present a talk about containers:
* What they are
* The benefits of Kubernetes and other orchestration platforms in the
* How to get many of the benefits of Cloud PaaS providers but for the
lower cost of on-site hardware.
This talk was previously given at the start of a project. For Brighton
Java, Luke will follow up the original talk with a second talk on why
the project didn't quite go according to plan.
The first part of the talk is a ground up explanation of the benefits of
containerisation and platform as a service that will equip you with the
knowledge need to see if this architecture is right for you, and to
pitch it to your companies decision makers. The later part of the talk
explores how human and business factors can get overlooked in large
projects and how (hopefully) you can avoid these pitfalls.
Luke is a Senior Engineer for Brandwatch and works on their Audience
platform as a middleware and data processing specialist. Over the last 9
years he's worked on helping the company develop a platform capable of
searching and sorting terabytes of data with sub-second response times,
as well as recently spending more of his time focusing on their
container orchestration. When not wrangling with the JVM Luke can
usually be found on the archery field or hurtling around a roller-coaster.
The meeting is sponsored by Brandwatch who are providing pizza and a
choice of alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks.
RSVPs close at 5pm on the day, with Doors at 6:30pm. Talks will begin at
