“The Continuous Delivery Model”
What Continuous Delivery really is? If you want to implement it, first you need to understand it!
There is often confusion about the difference in the buzzwords Continuous Delivery, Continuous Deployment and Continuous Integration. I will try to dispel some of the confusion surrounding these processes and the key principles that identify them.

“How to create a customer support and operations infrastructure that scales beyond millions customers”
One of the core challenges at Monzo is to create an IT infrastructure that enables us to scale our customer support and business operation efforts quickly to millions of customers, while ensuring that we always deliver the best customer experience possible. This is a hard challenge due to the interconnection of technology, people and processes and the high uncertainty of a fast-growing startup. Solving it requires a technology and development approach that allows us to adapt quickly and stay productive despite a continuously growing tooling landscape and engineering team.
I’ll talk about how we approach this problem and introduce you to our React/Redux-based business operations tool. We will analyse some of the architectural decisions made to tackle the above-mentioned problem, look at the implementation of one or two advanced product features and discuss the development process required to achieve the desired results.
Look forward to seeing you all, old faces and new!

Introducing ID London
What are we all about? Well it’s very simple really.
Back in 2013, Adam Bolton realised that there was a big influx of people coming to the UK from Italy to seek roles within the software development community. He met up with an Italian developer that he had worked with in the last few years and told him of the idea for an ‘Italian Developers in London’ group to help people to settle in London and see if there was anything he could do to help them to find a job as his day job is recruiting top tech talent for some of the most exciting companies in the London tech scene.
From the success of these early meetups Adam was approached to start further groups for Polish, Portuguese, Spanish, French & South African developers, all of which grew exponentially over a period of 18-24 months. There was a conference in 2015 too! With the interest in the community driven talks about development the decision was made in early 2016 to combine all of the groups into ‘IDinLondon’ enabling people from all backgrounds to come along, network and learn. All for free!
We’ve helped hundreds settle here in London.
- As organizer of the Italian Developers in London's Meetup, Adam is doing an incredible job. He can arrange either informal or technical events in a very friendly and stimulating environment. I think he is helping a lot of people in putting them together and allows them to share experiences.Mattia Richetto
- I met Adam earlier this year when I came to London (from Brazil) and was looking for a new position. He really helped me to understand the London market, as well as some tips on my CV and interviewing techniques. I was scared about the interview process here in London! Adam's help was fundamental for me to understand the local market and I am so grateful to him. He works really hard not only on recruitment, but also on our language specific community - thanks Adam!Rodrigo Laranjo
