* Super 6 – New Adventures in DevOps
Infinity Works run, operate and evolve the Super 6 ‘free to play’ game for Sky Bet. Paul Henshaw and Ed Marshall (Principal Consultant) describe challenges in standing up the live service on the cloud ready for the new football season, plus some of the technology choices and lessons learned along the way!

*Starling Bank - Building a bank from the ground up!
A brief overview of a new startup bank, and its aims and objectives in the coming year. Infinity Works have been working with Starling Bank to establish infrastructure capability, technology and processes that will underpin their launch. Infinity Works’ Michael Lee and Stein Fletcher will discuss/demo how we can spin the bank’s cloud infrastructure up from scratch in minutes!

 
* SUS+ - Challenging perceptions of NHS IT
There is something of a technical renaissance going on in NHS Digital - where things are being done ‘properly’, learning from past experiences. On SUS+ NHS Digital have built a highly resilient multi-data centre data processing system utilising techniques more often used in the cloud, but with bare metal servers. Ed Hiley (NHS Digital, SUS+ Technical Lead) and Dan Rathbone (Infinity Works’ Technical Director) outline how they’ve built automated performance tests, an immutable infrastructure and a NoSQL data store with support for versioning data on a pivotal national NHS system.
