At RUBICON, we truly value knowledge and experience sharing among our team so we thought it was time to take it one step further and organize a meetup to share our thoughts with our community!
On August 26th, we hosted our very first meetup at KUTCHA (an open and outdoor COVID-19 safe space). We had a great time socializing with like-minded individuals and discussing trending topics in the sphere of software development.
Aside from the delicious burgers and drinks, we presented our guests with three educational presentations. For everyone excited to dig deeper into the topics, we’ve provided you with a little recap and some links to learn more.
The topics presented at the meetup were:
To start things off we compiled a DevOps starter kit for our audience. We wanted to showcase how simple, available, and affordable DevOps is today. This is a beginner-friendly guide that goes through different yaml-based CI/CD tools. We examine their similarities, differences, and capabilities on a Frontend-Backend example project. We also discover how to provision and manage infrastructure as a code. The point was not just to tell but also to give so we've open-sourced the repositories where you can easily check it out and maybe use the old copy-paste and start using it yourself!
P.S. Gitlab dropped free minutes from 2000 to 400 just after we did this presentation so keep that in mind!
The point of this presentation was not to get into the nitty-gritty details of workshops themselves but instead to show you how to make them a powerful tool for your business. Both the Design Sprint and Lean inception have a script; you follow it and you get results. What we wanted to say was that it’s okay to break the script and show you how we broke it to our advantage. We switched activities, we removed them, renamed the team members, mixed up the how and the what - and came up with our own lean recipe.
