How Do Platforms Work?

Platforms: either you have one or you’re building one. Over the years I’ve observed six high-level characteristics common to production environments which are operationally mature. This talk will explain in detail the six capabilities in an operationally mature production environment. I will also demonstrate these capabilities in an interactive, live exposition.
