About the event

The first 2020 DevOps Exchange London will be hosted by WorldPay this January and we've got some interesting talks from industry heavy hitters to start the year right. 

We'll be talking all things Continuous Delivery with none other than streaming giant and DevOps pioneers, Spotify. With 100+ teams all deploying several times a day, we can't wait to hear how this international innovator manages its DevOps. 

We'll also be learning about the ins and outs of establishing and building a successful SRE practice with leading payments company WorldPay, who are also kindly hosting the event on Wednesday the 29th. 

RSVP ASAP to reserve your space. 


Talk 1 - Spotify - Slava Kalmykov - Senior Software Engineer 

Title: Continuous Delivery at Spotify: 

Synopsis: At Spotify, each team is responsible for their own Continuous Delivery and DevOps, and deploy dozens of times per day. How does this work at a scale of 100+ dev teams? How can they maintain great service availability and still deliver quickly? In this talk, Slava will explain some of the workflows and practices they've adopted over time to help make their Continuous Delivery as smooth, as automatic, and as safe as possible. 

Slava Kalmykov, Senior Software Engineer at Spotify since 2018, working primarily on Spotify Connect 

Talk 2 - Worldpay - Mark Knoop, SRE Practice Lead 

Talk title: 100 days of SRE 

Synopsis: Worldpay processes millions of card transactions every day including a large % of the UK high street. Mark will discuss setting up a brand new SRE function within the New Acquiring Platform team as they embark on the next phase of its evolution to a scalable cloud-based platform based around open source technologies. 

Mark Knoop spent 10 years managing DevOps teams in various guises at Net-A-Porter through a period of rapid growth and significant organisational change. He recently joined Worldpay to set up a new SRE function within the New Acquiring Platform team.
