Take a load off: how strong platform engineering moves an organisation forward

Thursday, 23rd February, Online Meetup

This meetup was organised by LJC: London Java Community in February 2023


Platform engineering as a role and team is still fairly new, but the presence of platform engineering in an organisation is growing (1, 2, 3). Typically within an organisation the platform team is focused on enabling application development teams to move faster by simplifying what those teams need to think about as they deliver their value. Strong platform teams, like strong application development teams, have a product mindset. Platform folks get to know the teams they serve, and they work closely with the broader organisation to ensure that they meet their users’ needs with the organisation’s best interest in mind. Join us to hear more about the practice, the shape of the role, the goals of the team, and the benefit the role and the team can bring to an organisation.
