Platforms have become a hot topic recently, and for a good reason.

On the one hand, we all see the success of platform business models, and while only few organizations are pure platforms, understanding the model and becoming a bit more "platformy" can make a big business impact.

On the other hand, platform engineering has shown how organizations increasingly have to think about how to improve their delivery speed and scale.

Developer platforms and API platforms are two delivery patterns that every organization should think about today.

Who's it for?

  • Platform and Program Managers
  • VPs of Application Development
  • VPs of Engineering
  • API Developers looking for scaling their practices
