We’re a group of ‘full stack’ engineers interested in operating distributed systems at scale.
We aim to be a monthly meetup featuring talks on anything to do with web operations, followed by drinks and the opportunity to socialize and network.
It doesn’t matter what your job title is, the only requirement for someone thinking about attending this meetup is a healthy dose of curiosity. Theo Schlossnagle put it well when he said:
It is an impossible job requirement: “Knows everything about all technologies deployed in Internet architectures.” While no one fills this requirement, what I want is someone whose career goal is to find out how close they can get.
We’ll be exploring every layer of typical (and occasionally atypical) web systems. At the same time we hope to build a strong community around web systems engineering, which we believe will be the first of it’s kind in New Zealand.
