Hybrid event from November 23 2022
Platform initiatives are on the rise in organizations seeking to abstract complexities of the underlying infrastructure, accelerate time to market, and provide a better engineering effectiveness. In doing so, there are many ways to build such internal developer platforms. However, some commonly found anti-patterns can lead to counterproductive outcomes in the long run, thus impacting engineering effectiveness and eventually the business.
In this talk, Marion Bruns and Rahul Punjabi uncover the pitfalls of building monolithic platforms in the cloud and share a different and more sustainable approach, which they have used with their clients. Based on the principles of microservices and data mesh, they explore techniques that enable the evolution of your platform products while maintaining client autonomy.
Rahul's journey has taken him from a developer in the DevOps storm right into the forest of infrastructure and onto the cloud. Kubernetes has not left him alone since, although he tries hard to move on. Rahul is also an advocate for building reliable platforms as products with a focus on developer experience. He finds himself routinely translating between business and technology to further the cause.
