Session Name: Backstage: The Ultimate Access Pass to Maximum Developer Efficiency
Investing in a good developer experience is a must for any organization. Since we started using containers and a microservices-based architecture, the developer experience has taken a hit. In this talk, we will start by discussing what developer experience is, why it is important, the impacts it can create and how it has changed since our shift to the cloud. We will then present a solution to improve the developer experience when working on cloud-native applications in the form of Backstage, a CNCF project created by Spotify. The talk will cover the benefits to developer productivity that come with investing in an internal developer platform (IDP). We will show a demo of how you can use Backstage to create an IDP which will help boost developer productivity across your team.
Guy was fortunate enough to experience hands-on the entire evolution of cloud-native computing, from bare-metal servers to VMs and ultimately to Kubernetes. He is passionate about sharing his vast knowledge by writing blogs, speaking at global events, creating video content, and contributing to open-source projects by the CNCF. Guy has been dubbed “The Good Guy” by his peers and members of the community for his persistent desire to help others. It’s no wonder then that his day job at Komodor revolves around helping organizations to adopt K8s and solve the challenges that come with it, while his free time is dedicated to building a local community for Solution Architects and maintaining his educational.
