Our CEO/CTO Nicki Watt shares about her upcoming talk at PlatformCon 2022.
CTO / CEO
Platform Engineering is a key part of what we do here at OpenCredo. We understand that developing and running distributed systems in production at scale is hard, but is often the key enabler in helping clients achieve their business goals. Having seen the highs and lows involved in trying to get this right across a variety of different clients, I am delighted to announce I will be speaking at the first ever PlatformCon 2022 alongside other pioneers and practitioners to share my thoughts, experience and insights in this space.
Bringing together more than 7000 Platform Engineers from around the world, PlatformCon 2022 will be running virtually on the 9th and 10th of June. The conference was originally born from a series of Meetups hosted in Berlin and Austin via the Platform Engineering community, which soon grew to 4500 members globally in just a year. The conference is a great way to get insights and info in digestible bite sized chunks – talks are just 15 mins each, so no time for waffling.
TLDR; In my talk, I make the point that Technology alone is not able to yield the type of outcomes that organisations desire and expect to get out of their platforms. I do however explore how a balanced and considered blending of technology and social considerations, when done pragmatically, can. So, if you are looking for a no nonsense, concise and to-the-point talk on what it takes to build a robust platform (both technically and socially) for your diverse engineering teams to use, I do hope you’ll register for the conference and pop in to watch this talk.
