Platform engineering: What is it, really, and does it make sense for your company? If so, how do you get started?

In this talk, we’ll provide an introduction to platform engineering – the pros, the cons, and how to know whether it’s a fit for your organization. Then we’ll dig into Backstage, an open source project for building developer portals that originated at Spotify.

You’ll walk away from this Tech Talk with a better understanding of:
– How to create your very own Integrated Developer Portal (IDP) or platform
– Challenges and considerations for implementing a platform project
– How users consume services offered by an IDP built with Backstage
