What is it?

Welcome to Microservices Dublin, Ireland’s first and only microservices meet-up.

The meet-up is an open, informal gathering in Dublin, Ireland, of people who share an interest in microservices. It is aimed at developers, techies, and anyone else who wants a piece of the microservices action at an early stage. Its aims are to enable like-minded people to meet and share information and ideas, to provide a forum for people to make contacts, and to help build up a community of microservices experts in Ireland.

Meet-ups consist of a talk by an invited speaker, followed by a question and answers session, and rounded off with informal chat and socializing. There is also often beer and pizza. (Okay - always.)

Who is it for?

The meet-up is for people who want to be up and running with microservices by the time it hits the mainstream. It is aimed at:

  • Developers of all kinds, be they employees or freelancers
  • Non-developer techies, such as program managers and technical writers
  • Non-techies working with the tech industry, such as marketing, operations and HR staff

Whether you’re an early adopter who already uses microservices in their own work, an “improver” who has dipped their toes in the water and wants to learn more, or a newbie who has just heard vague whisperings of this “microservices” stuff… this meet-up is for you.

Why do we need a microservices meet-up?

Microservices are still in their infancy. They are still regarded by many as “mad science”. The thing is, mad science has a habit of changing the world.

The meet-up brings together people with an interest in microservices at all levels, from all over Ireland, with the aim of building up a community of expertise. It enables people to gain knowledge and ideas, and get to know each other in a relaxed setting.

The meet-ups also help position Ireland as a global microservices hub, in much the same way that the Node.js Dublin meet-ups did for Node.js.
