Hey there! This is Platform Weekly, your platform engineering sommelier. Let’s get sippin🍷

The world’s biggest Platform Engineering event just launched

This is a special week.. PlatformCon is back! And with some banger new formats.

PlatformCon23 was by far the biggest platform engineering event of the year, with 180 speakers and over 16k attendees over 2 days. It was a true blast!

But we like honesty over here in the community and one thing we gotta be real about: 180 talks is too many freakin talks. So we changed things👇

PlatformCon24 will be a full week of platform engineering! We will release the 90 talks we will select from 800+ (!!) submissions across 3 days, to give everyone enough time to watch them and discuss them with the speakers. Quality over quantity baby.

We are also launching a brand new format, with a dedicated Open Source Day with presentations and hands-on labs to code your platforms live!

In person satellite events were also a huge success, so we are doubling down on them this year. Stay tuned for more info on that one, but I can share now that there will be some BIG live events at PC24…

I really believe this will be the best PlatformCon to date, hope you are feeling the excitement jumping out of your inbox and into your xmas sweater.

So stay tuned, as we’ll be announcing more PC24 details soon, including speakers, exact agenda, live events locations, etc. so make sure to register now!

And btw, we are doing an early bird special this year.. The first 1k registrations will get the chance to join an exclusive virtual event hosted by platform engineering superstar Gregor Hohpe!

And yes PC24 is still 100% free. What are you waiting for?!

Merry xmas. Stay crunchy.

Nothing like a little bit of Jack Torrance in some Platform nerds….
