Upcoming speaking engagements

You can become a serverless blackbelt. Enrol to my 4-week online workshop Production-Ready Serverless and let me take you through building a production-ready serverless application from testing, deployment, security right through to observability. This workshop gives you hands-on experience building something with serverless technologies while giving you a broader view of the challenges you will face as the architecture matures and expands. By the end of the workshop, you should have a clear idea when serverless is a good fit for your system as well as common pitfalls you need to avoid.

I love this part of the year, there are great conferences happening between now and Feb, and I’m honoured to have been accepted as speaker to some of these amazing events.

 

Code Mesh (London) Nov 4th-5th

Build Stuff (Vilnius) Nov 19th-21st

I’ll be talking about how we used Neo4j to model the in-game economy of our MMORPG title Here Be Monsters, and how it enabled our small team of game designers to automate the otherwise difficult and laborious task of balancing the game.
