Update your golden paths at scale

Updating applications with new best practices is hard because platform teams may not know what repositories are applying the recommended golden paths. However, with the availability of emerging software modernization options, the automation to perform migrations becomes a MUST-HAVE.
Talk abstract

Platform teams build golden paths to define a standard way to create, build, and deploy an application or library. These are usually applied using templates such as Cookiecutter. This provides autonomy for stream-aligned teams to customize them.  

But how do you keep those generated files updated and still support team or repository customizations? In this session, we will learn:

  • Solutions and their pros and cons for updating your golden path
  • How some open-source libraries are starting to support automatic API migrations
  • How these practices can help platform teams improve developer productivity
