Gamesys: The Road Taken

 

A few years ago Gamesys started a journey on modernising their platform. While the road taken was a long and bumpy one, in retrospective it did fulfil most of its promises. Moving to a containerised, microservice architecture was a big part of this journey. The talk looks back at this road pinpointing various design decisions that both helped and hindered us in achieving what we wanted.

 

Zsolt’s professional career started as an Infrastructure Engineer who spent most of his days laying CAT-6 cables. While he eventually ventured further into more development oriented positions, he always remained aware that development doesn’t actually end when you finish coding. His experience in a wide range of topics made him a good candidate for the newly formed Platform Engineering team within Gamesys, helping the company automate their processes even more. Currently he enjoys working on the new security architecture of the platform, while looking into new technologies like Kubernetes, and doing various talks and presentations around the development stack and DevOps in general.
