How Backstage Makes Developers Happy at Spotify

Thu, Apr 7, 2022, 12:00 PM (CDT)

About this event

You have a complex ecosystem of frameworks, technologies, and platforms. Each with their own portal or tooling surrounding it. To remove friction, your autonomous teams all have their own implementation. Onboarding new developers is super confusing, and docs are scattered around the place. In short: chaos.

The solution to solving all this fragmentation might as well be.. another portal? Let's take a look at Backstage [], an Open Source platform which you can use to build your own developer portal, is highly customisable and adopted by companies like Expedia, Netflix, American Airlines, and Epic Games. .

Himanshu will share the story why Backstage was developed at Spotify, how it became the core of their Developer Experience, and eventually a CNCF project. You’ll get a tour of the Backstage platform, the plugin ecosystem, an understanding of the key use cases for Backstage and how Backstage might be a solution to control the chaos in your organisation.
