Here it is, our last event this year. And oh my, what a year it has been. After the whole Covid mess we successfully restarted this meetup series. You did not forget and joined us in this. Now let's have something special for the last event 2022. We sided with VMware and not only do they sponsor a great location with Beer and Burgers afterwards, we also have the hottest topic of all: backstage.
As always, this is the online event. Find the on-site event invitation here: https://www.meetup.com/cloud-native-computing-vienna/events/289482113/
So let’s explore what Backstage actually solves and why it gained so much traction as a CNCF incubating project around Application Definition & Image Build.
Originally a project that originated at Spotify and was donated to CNCF, Backstage has quickly gained momentum and already has 211 adopters.
Backstage claims that you can build one central place for your engineering organization’s tools, resources, and documentation. From CI/CD status to Kubernetes monitoring, to API and library docs, to deciphering your monorepos, and everything in-between. Basically, everything your developers need outside their repo and IDE.
We want to demonstrate the benefits of Backstage as part of an end-to-end platform. As we strongly believe it has come to stay.

Let me help you «graduate» Kubernetes | Cloud Foundry in your organization. In my previous positions, I helped various companies adopt and master cloud-native platforms based on Kubernetes and Cloud Foundry. In doing so, I have not only considered an infrastructure-up approach, but also combined an application-down point of view. Let me help you «graduate» these technologies in your organization to ensure the best control while you continue to use the tools and focus on generating business value on your application modernization journey. In my spare time, I am a passionate firefighter and former paramedic. Life without constant learning is unthinkable for me, so I support young professionals by sharing on my knowledge and strengthening their career paths in the best possible way.
I am based in Austria and part of the VMware Solution Engineering Team. The first half of my 15-year tenure in the industry, I focused on solving problems for the media sector based on Linux and the wider Open Source catalog with a focus on monitoring. I also gained experience in the field of High Performance Computing and benchmarking. Later in Presales I focused on datacenter technologies like Enterprise Storage and Compute with a specific interest on VMware and SAP HANA Solutions. I joined VMware two years ago and have been an advocate for the Tanzu solution stack ever since.
