Developer Control Planes: A Platform Builder's Point of View

Platform builders, Kubernetes developers, and tech leaders share their insights

Many companies are building a platform, “paved path,” or developer control plane on top of Kubernetes. The teams responsible for building these platforms have many names, from platform engineering to DevOps, from site reliability engineer (SRE) to developer experience (DX) teams, but they all have one goal: reduce the friction and toil for developers coding, shipping, and running their applications.

This has fundamentally changed the developer experience, creating a need for closer collaboration and demanding a centralized path for developers to be able to create, deliver, and run apps with speed and safety.


In these guides, experts and leaders in the cloud native space share their take on the importance of technologies, education, culture, and community for the goal of achieving cloud native maturity. SRE and platform teams, developers, and leaders also share some common perspectives about how developer control planes like Ambassador Cloud have helped ease the transition.

How Internal Developer Advocacy Leads to Improved DevEx

"The Developer Control Plane frees us to utilize the power of our cluster while also keeping the cluster really small. Each of us can work concurrently using resources working off the same dataset, allowing us to maximize efficiency. It also frees us up to work on wildly different development setups based on personal preference.” - Dave Sudia, CTO at Upchieve
