This month we're sponsored and co-hosted by Vanquis Bank, who will be inviting us all to the Walkie Talkie building for a really insightful talk from Clinton McCutcheon, who is their Application Solutions Architect.

After an introduction from Rich and Andy from the UK Azure User Group, we will have a talk by Ivan Gavryliuk, Software Architect (Title TBA), after which Clinton will present Vanquis Bank's strategy for keeping data used in cloud hosted business critical systems in sync between their legacy data centre and Azure. The presentation will go through their use of Azure Data Factory, Service Bus, Azure Functions & Azure SQL. They will also discuss the challenges encountered, and lessons learned when dealing with disparate data sources whilst building a top 20 rated financial services app.

This will be followed by food, drinks and networking. Make sure not to miss out on this exciting session!

Please note, due to location the RSVP on this meetup will close 1 day before so we can hand the attendee list to building security.

Spaces are limited so make sure to RSVP quickly, and free up your spot if you are not able to attend.
