2016 saw a growth spurt in FinTech – a true coming of age story. And as new technologies disrupted the norm and are here to stay.
And this increasingly collaborative environment is paving a way for the rise of collective; and this journey has seen a rise in number of FinTech Conferences. These conferences provide an extremely valuable opportunity for the professionals from tech, banking and fintech; alike – to network, to learn to contribute and realize – we are all in this together. Technology is an ever growing nebulae of brands and tools and it has already proven itself. Now, it’s time to get it to work to make our lives simpler. There is an inherently identical design pattern to each of our stories; similar growth pangs, similar challenges of tackling the culture more than getting the technology right.
One such way of life, methodology, attitude with an aptitude for success – is DevOps. That and other satellite challenges like regulatory and compliance, geographical and other diversities; under which DevOps needs to work was the core theme of FinTech:Code 2017 in London on 16th and 17th March, 2017.
