Advisor and consultant to teams implementing internal developer platforms. Prior to his current work, he was VP of Engineering at New Relic, a Senior Director of Product at Salesforce, and the GM for Western US at ThoughtWorks.
When Aaron isn’t deploying new software capabilities, he spends time in his garden growing tomatoes, doing Portuguese lessons, and advocating for affordable housing in San Francisco. He is also the author of The Nomadic Developer, a book about the business of technology consulting.
According to the latest Puppet report, top performing engineering organizations all have one key trait in common: developer self-service. They enable their developers to self-serve the tech they need to run their apps and services autonomously, releasing pressure on Ops teams. In this webinar, Aaron will discuss why companies like Salesforce and GitHub built self-service setups and what this means for the performance of their engineering organizations.
Internal Developer Platforms are increasingly becoming mainstream at most large tech enterprises. One of the visionary thinkers and most experienced veterans in this field is Aaron Erickson, who built the Internal Developer Platform at Salesforce. We are very excited to talk to him about his experiences and best practices in this webinar.
