Dev, Ops, DevOps, Platform Teams – and everybody has it’s own interpretation. But what is meant by platform engineering, actually? What’s the difference to ops? And isn’t that contradictionary to DevOps?

In this talk, Philipp shows Scout24’s journey from separate dev and ops departments to platform teams and the steps in-between. You’ll see how the organisation changed and why this was necessary. On some real-world examples he explains how the platform teams now uses AWS and Docker to enable the feature teams to become faster and more productive.
