iO Associates are excited to bring the launch of The DevOps Virtual Meetup, which iO Associates' consultants Theo Borek and Will Rouse hosted last night, Tuesday 20th April at 7pm. We were joined by Tr Thambi, Cloud Operations Director EMEA & APAC at Dense Neuron, who delivered a fascinating talk on 'The Future of DevOps with Edge Compute'. 

With the rollout of 5G now fully underway, businesses are taking a second look at edge computing and ways to leverage this technology to create new capabilities and enhance existing ones.

This talk covered the benefit of 5G and Edge computing, the opportunities it brings and the impact it will have on SREs and DevOps Engineers. It explained some of the enabling factors, and where companies are already leveraging these technologies. We discussed why open-source will remain key to the future of our connected life, and which trends to watch out for to keep ahead of the curve.
