Developer Enablement with Backstage

The developers in your organisation are reinventing the technical wheel every day. Besides coding, they need to handle cross-cutting issues like ops, compliance and security. This takes time, results in a large technical footprint, and inevitable many of the solutions don’t match the best practices you would hope for.

Backstage, an open-source platform created by Spotify for building developer portals, aims to help you solve these problems. In this talk I’ll introduce Backstage with live coding and demonstrate the primary benefits, the drawbacks, and the alternatives.
