We’re excited to announce that we will be holding a Tech//connect on the 4th August in Leeds City Centre.

At Amsource we’re passionate about connecting people talent and opportunity in technology, and supporting the growth of the digital economy in The North.

Our latest event aims to bring both technical and non-technical senior stakeholders together, in our region, who are responsible for driving innovation and digital change in their organisations. The evening will allow attendees to take part in interesting discussions surrounding an industry hot-topic of the moment, Microservices.

We’re delighted to welcome special guest Andrew Rea (Chief Application Architect at the DWP) who will be presenting a detailed talk regarding Microservices, including comparisons between typical monothlic systems and how micro-services operate in order to offer scalable solutions.

Who is Andrew Rea…

Andrew has been working in software development for over ten years. Primarily working with web technologies on the .NET platform, he has worked on several high traffic web sites, for well-known brands in the United Kingdom.  

Andrew began his early career working with VB6 and classic ASP, moving into the .NET 1.X framework and continuing through to the latest versions using C#.  Andrew is a true technologist and despite operating in roles in a Senior capacity still sits down and writes code in his own time.  His current interests lie in Golang, Python, C and JavaScript due to their performance and interoperability across multiple operating systems.

Andrew’s previous roles included working as Technical Architect at and HP, working in different contexts including high concurrency and high security.
In Andrew’s current role he is Chief Application Architect at the DWP, reporting into the CTO office, and he is responsible for re-defining how applications are built, tested, deployed, operated and decommissioned including the existing heritage systems of which there are many.  Microservices form the key application architecture strategy for the DWP.

Andrew is looking forward to presenting and giving an insight into what Microservices are, how they are built and how a Microservices architecture is transforming the way the DWP build their applications and ultimately the benefits it is delivering to the wider population.
