Building a platform for developers is only as effective as the uptake from said developers. If programmers won't use the shiny new thing you built for them, why did you build that thing in the first place? That's why focusing on developer uptake and enablement is core to success in any platform engineering endeavor. 

Jim Wittermans of ABN AMRO Clearing Bank spoke at the OpenShift Commons Gathering at Red Hat Summit in Boston about how to enable the global landscape on a global platform. His presentation detailed the processes and platforms used by his team to build development services and enablement teams to guide technical implementations.

The OpenShift Commons Gatherings take place all over the world to coincide with events that bring in Kubernetes and cloud-native developers, administrators and architects, allowing users of the OpenShift Platform to communicate their successes to each other and to share their tips and tricks for meeting business challenges along the way.

If you'd like to see all of the talks given at OpenShift Commons Gathering, Amsterdam 2023, check out this playlist where we've made all of the videos from the show available. 

The next OpenShift Commons Gathering takes place in Israel June 21, 2023. After that, we'll be hosting the OpenShift Commons Gathering in Buenos Aires. You can sign up for Raleigh here, and for Israel here.
