Kubernetes has reached mainstream adoption, with 5.6 million developers using it worldwide. But, organizations are still challenged to make developers productive using Kubernetes. PlatformOps teams are now being asked to build, run, and manage platforms that lead with developer experience.

This requires embracing a PlatformOps philosophy that treats developers as customers while meeting their organization’s policies. VMware understands this transition building on 20 years of stewarding the most popular Java framework, Spring, which fundamentally changed the enterprise Java landscape on the back of a superior developer experience. That history allows us to identify patterns and attributes that we believe are critical to delivering a better cloud native developer experience on Kubernetes.

In this talk we’ll focus on three things PlatformOps teams should focus on:

  • Reducing complexity without sacrificing flexibility
  • Shifting outcomes left without shifting the burden left
  • Ensuring consistency and security without giving up agility

Join Ben Hale, VMware Senior Staff Engineer and Technical Lead for VMware Tanzu® developer experience, as he shares the core values of a great developer experience on Kubernetes based on his multi-decade career building application development tools and working with one of today’s most thriving open source developer communities, Spring.
