Nicky has been working as a developer and leading teams for more than 15 years, across a wide range of industries: travel, banking, media and telecommunications. Since joining the Financial Times three years ago, she has been heavily involved with the journey through various technologies and approaches: starting with a migration to microservices and then migrating those microservices into containers and the adoption of Go, and most recently moving from a hand-rolled container orchestration and deployment platform to Kubernetes. She loves to learn new technologies and over the last couple of years that has included Go, Graph datastores, containerisation. She exploits this keen interest in new technologies to provide more capabilities in less time with a reduced operational overhead.
