Top 10 fallacies in Platform Engineering

As in every trending new field, you can observe some confusion in the vertical of Internal Developer Platforms and developer self-service. As the building, implementation and adoption of such platforms has very far-reaching implications, every step must be well thought out. Most stakeholders have different views on which are the most pressing pain points a platform should solve, and that is just the beginning. This talk will be about some observations on common pitfalls when building IDPs, based on hundreds of conversations we had with platform teams.

We will discuss:

  • What the most common fallacies in platform engineering are, when it comes to questions like prioritization, degree of abstraction, visualization, roll out, etc. 
  • How to avoid such platform engineering anti-patterns.
  • Where and how to start the platform journey to enable real developer self-service.
