Main Conference (August 5th, 2022)

Principles for a Cloud Native Platform

A platform is a self-service internal product fit for purpose to an organisation to accelerate releases that get quality features, fixes, and security patches into production reliably. It’s a composition reliant on an evolving mix of culture, product management, support, security, and technology to be successful. Everything that dev, sec, ops, and test do on the platform is in service of getting releases out to end users and getting feedback. The value is increased efficiency, reduced risk, and accelerated innovation.

This presentation dives into a vision of the principles necessary to successfully build a Cloud Native platform.


Cloud Native Summit - Everett Toews

Everett Toews

Specialist Director at Deloitte NZ

Everett's focus is creating platforms that improve the developer experience of building Cloud Native applications through a combination of dev, ops, docs, integration, testing, and CI/CD. He's interested in composing platforms from complementary technologies including code, containers, and cloud. All of this work culminates in one purpose, releasing software to users more securely, safely, and frequently. He likes to teach what he learns along the way.
