Driving platform adoption: the right way

It doesn’t matter how useful you think your platform is, or how much time and money you spend on it if people don’t adopt it. Platforms are only as powerful as their adoption. This session goes into learning from looking at dozens of successful (and unsuccessful) platform engineering initiatives.

Ensuring developer adoption is more than just building a fancy UI or interesting branding, and relying on “build it, and they will come” is a disaster in waiting. So how can you ensure developer adoption of the platform you may have spent years and millions on building?

This talk will examine how you can do just that by highlighting a successful adoption strategy that starts with a few advocates and expands to engineering organizations of thousands.
