Join us at our next JBUG Scotland event on the 11th of November 2015 where James Rawlings, Principal Software Engineer at Red Hat will discuss Microservices in the main session.


Microservices with James Rawlings, Principal Engineer, Red Hat
With the hype and focus on Microservices, James will discuss some of the technical and social challenges we face in adopting them and discuss the effects of the way we work. We will look at how Kubernetes has changed the way we can approach Microservices as well as developing for the Cloud.


This session will explore how fabric8 has evolved to provide a platform that supports not only the development of microservices but also working with them, taking an idea from inception right through to running in a live environment with the help of an integrated CD solution.


With popular trends such as DevOps, we know that it is more about the culture of an organization that will give you greater agility and chance of success. Being able to communicate effectively with your cross functional teams increases productivity, reduces social conflicts, and establishes the all important feedback loops.


We will look at how fabric8 provides out-of-the-box integration for hosted git services in Gogs, as well as agile project management with Taiga and social tools such as Lets Chat and Slack, to enable intelligent, extendable ChatOps automation using Hubot, while providing a platform that is designed for the new age microservices team.
