Whilst trying to avoid the classic answer of “it depends”, Paula will provide advice on how to consider these key platform engineering questions within the context of your organisation. She will share practices from the many Platform Teams that she has worked with and highlight examples of those highest-performing teams.
Within this talk, attendees will hear:
- A definition of a platform and suggestions on writing a platform mission statement specific to your organisation
- A review of the path to production that most teams face, and guidance on where collaboration and clearly defined contracts between teams can make that path easier to navigate
- An outline of the different approaches that organisations take around flexibility vs. consistency, and the pros and cons of each
