Our sponsors GreyMatter are putting on an ISV partner day with Microsoft in Reading on 16th April. And it’s Free to attend!
It’s going to be a really high value day with 18 sessions split across 3 tracks for developer, platform and business. There’ll be have speakers from across Microsoft, GreyMatter’s own technical team and from partners like Stephens Scown and Source Code Control. Content covered will be centred on how to utilise the Microsoft stack to accelerate innovation and deployment. As well as all the business support available from Grey Matter and Microsoft with apprenticeships, modern licensing, creating meaningful customer experiences and protecting your IP. Attendees will be able to switch between tracks on the day to make sure they get the most out of attending.
Our usual mix of top quailty techy Lightning Talks, friendly Chit-Chat
and community news (got something to announce? let us know!).

We return to our normally scheduled meetups this month, with three lightning talks and network opportunities all hosted at Exeter Phoenix.

Our sponsers aren’t just anyone – they’re people who we enjoy wotking with and provide lots of value to our community. We asked Tristan from Grey Matter a few questions prior to his upcoming talk on modern app deployment techniques on Azure.
My biggest passion and what motivates me are almost one and the same. I enjoy a challenge and get great satisfaction from solving technical problems.
How do you start your mornings?
Would it be cliché if I said drinking coffee?
What does a ‘typical’ work day look like?
Is there one? I don’t think there is a ‘typical’ day at work. No one day is the same. I can spend a whole day in meetings with different members of the team and customers, other days I’m attending and presenting at technical events, or implementing and deploying projects for businesses. I guess the one thing that they all have in common is that the end goal is helping customers adopt the cloud.
