As a follow up to their fireside chat, in a PlatformCon first, Kelsey Hightower and Kaspar von Grünberg will do a live Q&A on the state of platform engineering, what led us to this new discipline, and what we might expect for the future.

Platform engineering is a culmination of decades of growth and change in the IT and software engineering industry from bare metal infrastructure to the rise of cloud native and containerization. Kelsey Hightower has been there through all of it.

A key contributor to Kubernetes, Kelsey has been a leader and a teacher in the world of cloud native for years, and is eager to share his knowledge and thoughts on the emerging discipline of platform engineering. Kaspar on the other hand has spent the last 5 years leading the charge in the platform engineering revolution.

There are few people who have more experience and knowledge of the rise and development of platform engineering, and they can’t wait to answer your questions.
