DevOps Top Meetups: Tecknuovo's DevOps Community Meetup & Event Schedule February 2019

  • Feb 01, 2019
  • Margo Gantner and Dominique Top


A curated list of DevOps Community events and Meetups to attend this February.

Apparently, it’s going to snow in London this weekend and so winter is officially upon us. We actually can’t believe that it’s February already (and we are also very much looking forward to spring….). Our idea of staying busy this month by attending lots of meetups and singing karaoke on Blue Monday definitely worked for us and made January disappear a lot quicker! So with February being the shortest month of the year and a lot of people taking a winter break abroad, Dom and Margo will finally have time to work relentlessly behind the scenes on a new endeavour that will be a great benefit to the London Meetup scene…. /*watch this space*/

Follow us on LinkedIn or @Tecknuovo and always be the first to know about all upcoming Meetups.

Anyway, read on for great meetups happening this month in London. We are going to be there, so don’t be shy, come find us and say hello! \ (•◡•) /
