Hey there! This is Platform Weekly, 72 weeks ago while enjoying a croissant in France, I decided to start a weekly platform engineering newsletter. Well now, after 500 days… I am coming back to France for #KubeCon Paris.

The Platform Engineering Revolution comes to Paris

For everyone here who has been to KubeCon, you know how hectic it can be. Even beyond the planned meetings, from the booth, to coffee chats, to mezcal in the evening, there are easily 100s of conversations across the 4 days.

I’ve been going to KubeCon for years now, and it was literally only 2 years ago that 99% of those 100s of conversations were people asking me, “wtf is platform engineering?”.

This year? We aren’t just talking about platform engineering. We’re going deep. We now have best practice inspired reference architectures that have been downloaded 1000s of times (and open source versions too), we’ve got huge events like PlatformCon (almost 35k attendees!!), we have dozens of experts, practitioners and companies all thinking about and working on platform engineering 24/7.

Most of all? We’ve got an effective process to get started with platform engineering in a clear, and replicable way. 

This is just in the last 2 years.

Imagine what 2025 will look like? I can’t wait. See you there.
