Pipeline Patterns for Platform Teams


Platform engineering has become one of the most important engineering disciplines of the last few years, providing a standardised, unified experience for development teams so that they can work at maximum efficiency, while ensuring your organisation can stay secure and compliant. At the same time, CI/CD pipelines remain integral to every SDLC and internal development platform, helping us bridge the gaps from idea to production, so mastering them is highly beneficial. In this session we will look at several advanced CI/CD pipeline patterns that teams can add to their toolkit to get the most out of their CI/CD tools. (With code samples!) Some of the patterns covered might include: orchestrating pipelines across projects, spinning up ephemeral, branch-specific infrastructure for testing, centralised provisioning of secure credentials, chatOps in practice, and more. The audience level is intermediate to advanced experience in CI/CD (skewing towards advanced), and definitely not tailored to a beginner audience.

Streaming Events? You Should Be Storing Them

Tuesday Mar 28 / 10:35AM BST

Event-driven architecture has been on many developers' minds for some time. Event streaming has increased in popularity, and whilst streaming has fantastic advantages, if you are not storing events at the source of the application, you are missing out on so many opportunities.
