Five Years Delivering World-Class Business Critical Apps on Cloud Foundry

Armakuni recently had the privilege of presenting at the Cloud Foundry Summit in Frankfurt, following up on the Keynote we presented last year in Berlin

Armakuni has worked with Comic Relief to transform the legacy donations platform into a secure, highly scalable and resilient, micro-service platform that caters for over 100,000 concurrent web sessions and up to 500 payments/second. At the same time, Armakuni was able to reduce the team size by 90% and save iro £5m run costs. This presentation will walk-through the journey, analyse the key decisions along the way, and discuss the benefits gained by a move to Cloud Native and why Cloud Foundry was key to the initial success and remains critical to the on-going success of the platform, and is now being adopted across the wider technology function.

Comic Relief is the UK-based charity responsible for ‘Red Nose Day’; seven hours of primetime live TV with circa 26 million viewers raising over a billion pounds in five years. 

Your build is probably broken, you just don't know it yet

Modern software development needs a modern CI; the patterns you follow when developing your code should also be reinforced by your CI pipeline. No snowflakes. No unstable results. No unscalable bottlenecks. Everything as code.

We will discuss the patterns that we want a CI solution to follow and why they are important, especially, but not exclusively, in the pursuit of continuous delivery and the adoption of DevOps and PaaS. You should leave feeling optimistic that tomorrow you can use Concourse CI to regain control of your pipeline, dramatically increasing velocity and consistency and, most importantly, reduce the time it takes to deliver value to users and receive feedback.
