Building Internal Developer Platforms With EKS And GitOps
An internal developer platform (IDP) is a set of standardized tools and technologies that enables development teams to self-service, offering convenient access to resources they need to create and deploy compliant code. The ultimate goal is to facilitate automation, autonomy and productivity across large teams. However, creating an IDP is highly complex, especially when bridging hybrid scenarios. In fact, build timelines can take anywhere between one to two years!
In this Techstrong Learning Experience, we will discuss how platform engineers can more efficiently build an IDP with Amazon EKS and Weave GitOps and accelerate cloud-native adoption while speeding up migration of existing applications to the cloud.
Our experts will also introduce EKS Blueprints, a collection of infrastructure-as-code (IaC) modules like Terraform and AWS Cloud Development Kit (AWS CDK) that will help you configure and deploy consistent EKS clusters across on-premises and cloud.
