Introducing NetOps: A tale of dark fibre, comics and microservices

A developer’s tale of what happened when she left the world of enterprise and struck out to build an internal startup.

With just two developers we started on an entirely greenfield project with an idea from our CTO of Automating The Internet. We’ve built a new network on new platforms and transformed how the industry approaches buying wholesale networking services. As a small company of 15, follow our journey of making an online retail experience. Share the highs and lows. How we’ve had to change our approach and thinking from our enterprise days, having the freedom to just get on and get stuff done. I’ll focus on our journey, our architecture, our mindset and the lessons we have learned.
