End of CloudNative London 2019 - See you in 2020!

The Quantum Revolution is coming... Prepare yourself at CloudNativeLondon with a lil' help from John Azariah!




John Azariah was one of the orginal designers of Microsoft Q#. He currently works on the Microsoft Quantum Computing team with the software engineers and physicists who are building a full-stack quantum computer. A veteran of the conference circuit, John has nearly thirty years of experience surrounding functional programming, cloud computing, quantum computing and software engineering.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be speaking about Quantum Computing.

This is a recently-popular form of computation which carries with it a disproportionate load of myth and intrigue. I want to demystify some of the concepts and make the topic more accessible, while also reducing some of the hyperbole surrounding them. I believe there's enough to be excited about with Quantum Computing even once the hype has been cleared away.

Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I've been recently using containers and Kubernetes to build part of the supporting platform for Quantum Computing at Microsoft, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the talks that deal with the real world aspects of building, deploying and maintaining a K8s cluster. And Sam's talks are always engaging, so I'm definitely keen to catch up on his latest thoughts on the pragmatic use of micro-services.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

An invitation from Sam Newman, and the opportunity to share some thoughts about how cloud computing is a natural way to access quantum computers.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I think there's no shortage of material about Quantum Computing out there - what one enjoys depends much on one's background. I have found Scott Aaronson's blog, Noson Yanofsky's book, and Michael Nielsen's lectures on YouTube very informative.

What is your favourite city to spend free time in?

I'm a bit of a global vagrant, so I find myself enjoying the specialties of Singapore, Bangalore, London, Oslo, Melbourne and Copenhagen as I wander through.

Catch John Azariah at CloudNativeLondon this September! More info on our Programme Page


Is DevOps still relevant in a Serverless World? Jez Humble thinks so! Find out why at this year's CloudNative London ☁️




Jez Humble has spent an entire career tinkering with code, infrastructure and product development. He is currently researching how to build high performing teams at his startup, DevOps Research and Assessment LLC, and he teaches at UC Berkeley. Jez is the co-author of The DevOps Handbook, Lean Enterprise and the Jolt Award winning Continuous Delivery.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I’ll be talking about DevOps for Serverless this year. People often think that serverless means we don’t need to care about things like deployment any more, and while it’s definitely a lot easier, building, testing and deploying systems using this paradigm is still a non-trivial activity.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I’m looking forward to John’s talk on quantum computing because I always love seeing talks on things I know nothing about. I’m also excited for Ebru’s talk because she is upfront about the problems her team faced and sharing the lessons she learned with the community. That’s a refreshing attitude that is unfortunately too rare.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

I really enjoy connecting with the community in London - after all, it’s the community that I came from. The conference is also a good size with a variety of topics but not so large as to be overwhelming.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

To be honest I’ve been pretty heads down the last few months learning the ropes at Google and working on taking what we produced at DORA and bringing it to a wider audience. The 2019 State of DevOps report will be out by the time CloudNative come so around though, and there’s a bunch of exciting results that I know this audience will enjoy discussing.

If you could have any magical power, what would it be and why?

I think as an industry we get very hung up on shiny new technologies and it’s very easy to treat them as a silver bullet rather than as a means to an end. Thus my magical power would be to get people to think more about the “boring” stuff like how we’re going to build, test, deploy, and monitor our systems; how we’ll secure, scale, and evolve them without creating an insane amount of work for our future selves. I’m fundamentally a lazy person (I subscribe to Larry Wall’s three great virtues) and much of my approach to software delivery revolves around making sure I can relax when I’m not at work.

Excited to have Liz Fong-Jones joining us this year for a ProgNET London keynote!




Liz Fong-Jones is a principle developer advocate at Honeycomb 🐝 and site reliability engineer with over 14 years of experience based out of Brooklyn and San Francisco. Proudly out as trans, Liz sits on the board of TransEquality and also works as an activist to advocate for human rights. In her spare time she plays classical piano.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be sharing culture and process tips I've learned from my time leading and working with Site Reliability Engineering teams. People keep struggling through the same issues with the dev and ops split, and expecting tools to magically solve it. There's a better way, and people really need to hear that there is a path out of technical debt and operational overload.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I'm most excited about my former Google colleagues' talks -- Emma Haruka Iwao and Jez Humble. They've been around the block and know a ton about operating services at scale on public clouds :)

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

I got to stop by CloudNative last year at the tail end and the vibe was so great that I realized I'd love to collaborate more with SkillsMatter and CodeNode!

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

Yes! People might find some of the material I've put together around SLOs and SRE helpful.

Which piece would you love to be able to play on the piano?

I've been meaning to practice enough again to play Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 fluidly once more. The joys of picking up an instrument again after stopping in college because I got too busy...

Catch Liz Fong-Jones at CloudNativeLondon this September! More info on our Programme Page


Excited to share a piece of CloudNative London with pi master, and Google Cloud Platform developer advocate, Emma Haruka Iwao!




Last year, Emma Haruka Iwao calculated the world's most accurate value of pi (up to 31.4 trillion digits - far past the previous record of 22 trillion). A computer scientist and Cloud developer advocate at Google, Emma will be providing a CloudNative London keynote this September.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

We broke the world record of the most accurate value of pi ever calculated in March 2018. This talk will discuss the nature of the calculation, technical details and challenges, and brief history of pi calculation. I would also like to share why I decided to calculate the mathematical constant in the first place - it was a childhood dream that came true after two decades.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

It's hard to pick! There are a lot of talks by practitioners who use the technology and tools every day. But if I had to name a few - one is the keynote about quantum computing by John Azariah. Quantum computing is something I really want to learn more about especially because we are approaching the limit of Moore's Law. Another is Introduction to service mesh with Istio and Kiali by Alissa Bonas. The concept of service mesh can be overwhelming without proper tools. This would be an awesome opportunity to hear directly from the developer behind Kiali.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

The speaker list looks amazing, and I'm super honored to be part of the event as a keynote speaker.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

We have an episode featuring the world record on the Google Cloud Platform Podcast. I'd recommend other episodes too if you'd like to learn more about the platform.

What are your favourite things to learn more about?

Besides software engineering, I'm interested in education. I've been incredibly fortunate to be able to learn computer science and English as a second language. This gave me a lot of opportunities. Learning is a long process that requires a lot of patience, and I'm still learning, but I would like to help and support everyone who also wants to get into computer science and software engineering.

Sneak Preview

The Quantum Revolution is coming... Prepare yourself at CloudNativeLondon with a lil' help from John Azariah!




John Azariah was one of the orginal designers of Microsoft Q#. He currently works on the Microsoft Quantum Computing team with the software engineers and physicists who are building a full-stack quantum computer. A veteran of the conference circuit, John has nearly thirty years of experience surrounding functional programming, cloud computing, quantum computing and software engineering.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be speaking about Quantum Computing.

This is a recently-popular form of computation which carries with it a disproportionate load of myth and intrigue. I want to demystify some of the concepts and make the topic more accessible, while also reducing some of the hyperbole surrounding them. I believe there's enough to be excited about with Quantum Computing even once the hype has been cleared away.

Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I've been recently using containers and Kubernetes to build part of the supporting platform for Quantum Computing at Microsoft, and I'm looking forward to seeing some of the talks that deal with the real world aspects of building, deploying and maintaining a K8s cluster. And Sam's talks are always engaging, so I'm definitely keen to catch up on his latest thoughts on the pragmatic use of micro-services.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

An invitation from Sam Newman, and the opportunity to share some thoughts about how cloud computing is a natural way to access quantum computers.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

I think there's no shortage of material about Quantum Computing out there - what one enjoys depends much on one's background. I have found Scott Aaronson's blog, Noson Yanofsky's book, and Michael Nielsen's lectures on YouTube very informative.

What is your favourite city to spend free time in?

I'm a bit of a global vagrant, so I find myself enjoying the specialties of Singapore, Bangalore, London, Oslo, Melbourne and Copenhagen as I wander through.

Catch John Azariah at CloudNativeLondon this September! More info on our Programme Page


Is DevOps still relevant in a Serverless World? Jez Humble thinks so! Find out why at this year's CloudNative London ☁️




Jez Humble has spent an entire career tinkering with code, infrastructure and product development. He is currently researching how to build high performing teams at his startup, DevOps Research and Assessment LLC, and he teaches at UC Berkeley. Jez is the co-author of The DevOps Handbook, Lean Enterprise and the Jolt Award winning Continuous Delivery.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I’ll be talking about DevOps for Serverless this year. People often think that serverless means we don’t need to care about things like deployment any more, and while it’s definitely a lot easier, building, testing and deploying systems using this paradigm is still a non-trivial activity.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I’m looking forward to John’s talk on quantum computing because I always love seeing talks on things I know nothing about. I’m also excited for Ebru’s talk because she is upfront about the problems her team faced and sharing the lessons she learned with the community. That’s a refreshing attitude that is unfortunately too rare.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

I really enjoy connecting with the community in London - after all, it’s the community that I came from. The conference is also a good size with a variety of topics but not so large as to be overwhelming.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

To be honest I’ve been pretty heads down the last few months learning the ropes at Google and working on taking what we produced at DORA and bringing it to a wider audience. The 2019 State of DevOps report will be out by the time CloudNative come so around though, and there’s a bunch of exciting results that I know this audience will enjoy discussing.

If you could have any magical power, what would it be and why?

I think as an industry we get very hung up on shiny new technologies and it’s very easy to treat them as a silver bullet rather than as a means to an end. Thus my magical power would be to get people to think more about the “boring” stuff like how we’re going to build, test, deploy, and monitor our systems; how we’ll secure, scale, and evolve them without creating an insane amount of work for our future selves. I’m fundamentally a lazy person (I subscribe to Larry Wall’s three great virtues) and much of my approach to software delivery revolves around making sure I can relax when I’m not at work.

Excited to have Liz Fong-Jones joining us this year for a ProgNET London keynote!




Liz Fong-Jones is a principle developer advocate at Honeycomb 🐝 and site reliability engineer with over 14 years of experience based out of Brooklyn and San Francisco. Proudly out as trans, Liz sits on the board of TransEquality and also works as an activist to advocate for human rights. In her spare time she plays classical piano.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

I'll be sharing culture and process tips I've learned from my time leading and working with Site Reliability Engineering teams. People keep struggling through the same issues with the dev and ops split, and expecting tools to magically solve it. There's a better way, and people really need to hear that there is a path out of technical debt and operational overload.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

I'm most excited about my former Google colleagues' talks -- Emma Haruka Iwao and Jez Humble. They've been around the block and know a ton about operating services at scale on public clouds :)

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

I got to stop by CloudNative last year at the tail end and the vibe was so great that I realized I'd love to collaborate more with SkillsMatter and CodeNode!

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

Yes! People might find some of the material I've put together around SLOs and SRE helpful.

Which piece would you love to be able to play on the piano?

I've been meaning to practice enough again to play Liszt's Hungarian Rhapsody No 2 fluidly once more. The joys of picking up an instrument again after stopping in college because I got too busy...

Catch Liz Fong-Jones at CloudNativeLondon this September! More info on our Programme Page


Excited to share a piece of CloudNative London with pi master, and Google Cloud Platform developer advocate, Emma Haruka Iwao!




Last year, Emma Haruka Iwao calculated the world's most accurate value of pi (up to 31.4 trillion digits - far past the previous record of 22 trillion). A computer scientist and Cloud developer advocate at Google, Emma will be providing a CloudNative London keynote this September.

What will you be sharing this year? What inspired you to give this talk?

We broke the world record of the most accurate value of pi ever calculated in March 2018. This talk will discuss the nature of the calculation, technical details and challenges, and brief history of pi calculation. I would also like to share why I decided to calculate the mathematical constant in the first place - it was a childhood dream that came true after two decades.


Which other talks from CloudNative London are you excited about? And why?

It's hard to pick! There are a lot of talks by practitioners who use the technology and tools every day. But if I had to name a few - one is the keynote about quantum computing by John Azariah. Quantum computing is something I really want to learn more about especially because we are approaching the limit of Moore's Law. Another is Introduction to service mesh with Istio and Kiali by Alissa Bonas. The concept of service mesh can be overwhelming without proper tools. This would be an awesome opportunity to hear directly from the developer behind Kiali.

What made you want to be a part of CloudNative London this year?

The speaker list looks amazing, and I'm super honored to be part of the event as a keynote speaker.

Do you have any blog posts/podcasts or materials you think people might enjoy reading before coming along to your talk?

We have an episode featuring the world record on the Google Cloud Platform Podcast. I'd recommend other episodes too if you'd like to learn more about the platform.

What are your favourite things to learn more about?

Besides software engineering, I'm interested in education. I've been incredibly fortunate to be able to learn computer science and English as a second language. This gave me a lot of opportunities. Learning is a long process that requires a lot of patience, and I'm still learning, but I would like to help and support everyone who also wants to get into computer science and software engineering.
