It’s been an exciting month leading up to the close of the year. We have several news items that we would like to share with you. We had a successful relations network event, plenty of meet-up activities and GOTO nights and several new items planned for 2015 agenda that you don’t want to miss. Read on to learn more about all of this!

Annual Trifork Relations Network Event 2014

We held our annual Relations Network Event on the October 30th at the Corbra Cafe in Amsterdam. This proved to be a successful networking opportunity for both new and old relations exchanging ideas with like-minded people and of course celebrating with us. We bid our farewells to Bram Smeets and congratulated his successor Allard Buijze as the New CTO of Trifork Amsterdam.

Our CEO, Jeroen Speekenbrink did a recap of 2014, highlighting successful client projects and shared some exciting updates on our joint ventures such as Container-Solutions and DinDan Social. He also gave us insight to developments on new technologies which we are driving, such as the smart floor from The Surface Network and the personalized learning with apps from BrightCenter to mention a few.

Exciting times ahead as we continue to momentum investing both in new technologies and finding the right people! If you are interested to find out more on the exciting projects tied to our open opportunities,please visit our job page or get in touch with us today.

Our Amsterdam Free GOTO night on Functional Thinking took place on the 17th November. We were thrilled with the turnout with over 65 attendees joined us with our keynote speakers Neal Ford from Thought-works and Eelco Visser from TU Delft. Neal shared his ideas in his most recent book: Functional Thinking . The takeaway was learning a new language is easy, but learning a new paradigm is hard. He showed us in real-time Java and Scala examples on how to go from imperative programming to being a functional programming. Download  here  

Trifork’s joint venture partner Container-Solutions, hosted a Docker Meetup at our Trifork offices on the 13th November. The turnout was phenomenal with around 75 people gathering for this last meet up before the DockerCon Europe.
Here are some highlights:

Johan Janssen, from Info Support, warmed up the room with his talk teaching us how to use Docker and Jenkins to deploy and run applications on the Raspberry Pi and in the cloud. View the presentation.

Quinten Krijger, from Container Solutions, told us about the prerequisites for using Docker within an organization, why it is a cool technology and how it can solve some of your problems. The slides are bundled up in a container and uploaded them to the Docker Hub: pres- base and pres-prereq-to-docker . 

Alex Giurgiu, from Transystor, we got a tour of the common challenges one is facing when implementing a Docker environment and making it multi-machine aware. View the presentation.

The latests project realized Het Financieele Dagblad

As you might have heard on the radio Het Financieele Dagblad has a completely new website. We are very proud to have partnered with FD to develop this exciting new site.

Great speakers, great GOTO Nights
In October we are proud to welcome to Amsterdam at our FREE GOTO Nights:
jez Jez Humble, October 4th, 2013, will be presenting "Lean Enterprise". Jez is a Principal Consultant with ThoughtWorks. His presentation will take a scientific approach to innovation in software development. Large organizations are notoriously bad at disruptive innovation involving software. This is primarily due to cultural and organizational issues, combined with poor architecture a lack of good engineering practices.
michael Michael Nygard, October 14th, 2013 will be presenting "Five Years of DevOps: Where are we now?" It has been five years since Patrick Debois coined the term DevOps to describe a way of working together to deliver systems. In that time, we have rediscovered some gems from the past and we have invented new techniques and tools. In this session, we will take a look at what's new in the world of DevOps, what's old-but-good, and where we still need to advance.
