Cloud Native London April 2024: EDB, Mia-Platform, and more

Three speakers from EDB, Mia-Platform, and more joined us at the April Cloud Native London meetup at the Just Eat offices, as well as via the YouTube/Twitch livestreams.

We are immensely grateful to EDB for their generous support and sponsorship.


Kicking off our evening was Gabriele Bartolini from EDB with his talk on Scaling Postgres in Kubernetes Using the Power of CloudNativePG(starting at 10:01). His takeaways mentioned that:

  • You can run Postgres databases in Kubernetes.
  • Why you need an operator like CloudNativePG.
  • Remove yourself from any source of vendor lock-in with this open source stack.

Next up we had Michel Murabito from Mia-Platform telling us about How to turn Cognitive Load into creativity(starting at 42:56). Check out his takeaways:

  • Challenges are inevitable; the way we respond to challenges is the “moment” when true innovation is born.
  • Cognitive load, with evolution, is inevitable.
  • Cloud and Platform Engineering are allies in managing cognitive load.

And wrapping up our evening was Rajnish Singh discussing Data Governance on GCP using Dataplex(starting at 1:29:40). He talked about:

  • Data Governance and its importance in cloud.
  • How to implement data Governance in GCP using cloud native service.
  • Enhance data driven business decisions.

And of course, our usual group photo!
