From Kubernetes to PaaS to … err, what’s next?

Developers building applications on Kubernetes today are being asked to not just code applications -- they are also responsible for shipping and running their applications, too. 

We often talk about needing a Kubernetes platform, but are we really looking for a PaaS? Or instead, are we looking for some kind of developer control plane with a Goldilock-sized collection of tools that provides just the right amount of platform? 

This talk will look back on my experience of building platforms, both as an end-user and now as part of an organization helping our customers do the same. 

The key takeaways are: 

  • Treat platform as a product 
  • Realize that you can’t have good developer experience (DevEx) without good UX 
  • Focus on workflows and tooling interoperability
