What we’re up to

Tech in care


elder’s CTO (Chief Technical Officer) Kristian gave a talk in June at east London’s popup cafe, The Patio.


What was the talk about?

Kristian’s talk was part of an evening event focusing on Java, a programming language used to build many services that people use daily on the web. Kristian spoke specifically about Kubernetes, a new technology created by Google that helps companies build reliable services and adapts to customer demands.

Where was it?

The talk was hosted at the Patio Pop-up in east London and we got to enjoy a selection of drinks and delicious pizza provided by elder, who sponsored the event.

What did we learn?

We learnt about mistakes made by previous start-ups and about the role modern technology plays in their set-up. Previously Product Technology Manager at Google, Kristian is an expert in his field and he highlighted the importance of choosing the right technology needed to help start-ups.

How does this affect elder?

Put simply, the better technology we have, the better able we are to provide a reliable service that can handle an increased number of users. Elder is different to other care companies because it wants to move away from traditional set-ups and create a platform where people can access the care they need as efficiently and effectively as possible.
