Title: Re-writing DevOps


The silent crisis of operational delays and task redundancies. DevOps history is not fulfilling its promise. There is a huge gap between theory and real returns. A real owner is needed to ensure a balanced developer ecosystem.

Speaker 2: David Leitner - Chief Technologist at SQUER

Title: Why Your Platform Monolith Is Probably a Bad Idea


The newly gained popularity of Internal Developer Platforms is obvious. And the well-intentioned attempt to reduce the cognitive load we've continuously built up on engineering teams seems too promising to avoid following. But what when the platform becomes what we wanted to avoid in the first place: a bedrock that can hardly be tamed, devouring the cognitive load of tons of engineers and ultimately doomed to fail? Then we most likely landed in the world of platform monoliths, an anti-pattern being on the rise. Leading to large blast radii, a lack of adaptability to evolution, and heavy losses in overall engineering effectiveness. In this talk, I will share strategies and methods to overcome the fallacies of building platform monoliths while creating a foundation that truly accelerates your engineering pace — leading to a rethinking of how platforms should be envisioned.
