Join us for the next in the series of the Red Hat Tech Talks. These short succinct events, organised around the working day, are your opportunity to take a deep dive into new and emerging technologies, discuss the latest technology trends, and network with your community peers.
In order to accommodate the busiest of diaries, each session takes place twice – at the start and end of the day – so you can choose to attend the time to suit you.

Application Modernisation and Migration
28th March, 2018
There is at least one constant in today’s IT landscape and this is change. We suffer from a complexity of ever changing or out of support parts, interfaces, languages, databases, standards and architectures which when combined run increasingly business critical functions. The art of application migration and modernisation is to do it for the right reasons, at the right time, with the right objectives and with the correct level of planning, tooling and reuse.
The aim of this TechTalk is to cover all the topics around ‘Why Change?’ and be as prepared as possible. We will cover target platforms, modern application concepts, methodology and tools. We will share with you the lessons learned by RedHat and how we approach migration and modernisation giving you an insight to the different approaches, skills and tools used. If you are looking how to start modularising monoliths, add agility, enable continuous delivery/integration, manage old and working to new and optimised, go serverless, increase performance or simply stay supported then this TechTalk is for you.

An Introduction to Containers and Kubernetes - What are they, what do they provide, how will my world change?
25th April, 2018
There are few things that have struck such resonance with the IT sector in such a short space of time as Containers. Is it timing? Is it down to the way people can see it transforms the way companies ultimately do business from a point of view of time to market, consistency, opening the cloud, making departments more agile or cost savings? Is it because it embraces newer software best practices such as microservices? Or all of the above. People easily see the benefits of Containers. They are a practical solution to many of their current problems. They bring about better IT practices than they are currently able to enforce, they naturally encourage DevOps and provide better economies for hardware utilisation and software costs. For this TechTalk we are going to assume you have heard about Containers but do not necessarily have full details. We will cover comparisons to existing technologies, security, standards, management, run-time and everything needed to turn a container project into a reality.
