29th March - CloudNativeCon x KubeCon - Berlin - @oliver
In this talk, we describe how Monzo processes financial transactions involving real money and real people in way that's safe, secure, and resilient. We show how combining Kubernetes with Linkerd creates a highly adaptive system, where Kubernetes provides a baseline level of protection against hardware and software failures and Linkerd layers on request-level resilience, including including latency-aware load-balancing, intelligent retries, and service-level measures of success rates and latency. We show how the resulting system is resilient to a wide variety of failures and protects the financial transactions that flow through it from failure, yet still allows for a rapid pace of feature development and iteration.
Tuesday 14th March @ 6PM - Josh (iOS Engineer), Naji (Community Manager), Tristan (Head of Marketing + Product Manager), Venkat (Head of Lending), Zainab (Community Manager) -
Monday 6th March @ 6:45 PM - Dine with @tristan Thomas, Product Manager at Monzo Bank: building a product in public - TableCrowd page
Tristan has been a fundamental part of the evolution of the Monzo product, having been with the team since September 2015. After dinner, he’ll be speaking about:
✓ The journey of Monzo’s product and the challenges and opportunities that come from building a product publicly.
✓ Utilising the power of your community to learn, change and grow trust.
✓ Creating a product development strategy that works for your business.
✓ Tips and practical advice for building a brilliant product.
Expect to spend an evening talking ‘all things product’ with Tristan and your peers. Leave with new ideas for your business and a stronger network to support you.
Tues 28th Feb @ 6:30pm - Monzo Open Office - event page
Every month, we fling open the doors of Monzo HQ for a catch up with our community over food and drink. Each event kicks off with a short update on something interesting we’ve been working on, from sneak previews and panel discussions to Q&As with the team. We’ll shift the focus each month to keep things interesting! So bring your friends, feedback, questions and an empty stomach — we’d love to meet you ️
Remember the time we raised a record £1,000,000 in 96 seconds? Ever fancied helping us beat it? Maybe, just maybe, our Head of Marketing, Tristan Thomas will have some news on how we can make it happen….
Tues 28th Feb @ 4:30pm - Monzo Community Workshop - @Zainab & @Naji - event details & registration -
You can also view some of the upcoming Monzo events here -
Events are listed newest first so that users don't have to scroll past events which have already happened.
Please add events in order of their date, with a link to the event page / website etc. using
[event name](url.com), full tweets are ok but lots of expanded pages from event pages make it harder to skim through the list of events.
Details of past events will be deleted from this topic, after a couple of weeks so that users can see what's happened recently & search for videos, presentation etc. which have been posted as dedicated topics.
If you have any suggestions about how this topic could be managed better, please send me a direct message.
Some events are aimed at signing up new Monzo users but I've found the talks at these events interesting (particularly the free form Q&A) & I guess it helps to have a few Monzo users turning up, to rave about the product to someone who's considering signing up.
If there are any events which Monzo wouldn't want existing users to attend, I'm assuming that they'll let us know.
This topic has been closed to prevent users from posting replies (which would stop the thread from being listed as updated, when changes are made to the Wiki) but all users can still edit this Wiki.
