As developer velocity and productivity become increasingly important priorities to the business side of software production, we have seen more organizations attempt to address the developer experience gap: the disjointed experience that results from overwhelming choice and fragmentation of the tools and processes used to build and release software. One ascendant solution: the emergence of teams dedicated to engineering internal platforms that integrate these tools and processes so that application developers can focus their creative efforts on writing code. This talk covers some of the trends we are seeing in platform engineering and considers the often complex delivery setups involved when we are talking about systems engineered to help developers build and release software–systems that have to consider developers as both consumers and producers.
