With the growing number of services and dynamic environments needed for large enterprises to stay competitive, software delivery at large organizations is getting more and more complex. Service configuration drift can and does cause all sorts of problems, such as poor reliability, poor maintainability, and "snowflake" services. One approach to overcome these problems is building an Internal Developer Platform (IDP).

Aaron Erickson, responsible for building the IDP at Salesforce, will share his insights on:

  • Why Salesforce built their own Internal Developer Platform
  • How to best manage your platform as an internal product
  • How to achieve key objectives like reduced attrition, increased developer productivity and happier engineers

After a 30 minutes talk, there will be 15 minutes for Q&A. We’d like to encourage you to submit your questions in advance.

A recording of the webinar and related materials will be shared with webinar attendees afterwards.

Audience - who should join?

DevOps Engineers, Site Reliability Engineers, System Engineers, Infrastructure Kubernetes Administrators, Technical Architects, Application Developers with an affinity with DevOps and Technical Management.
