Thoughts about introducing internal developer platforms? The goal of DevOps at the end of the day is to not be a bottle neck and to create pace. The way you create pace is by automating everything so that developers can move at their own pace. Wouldn't introducing IDPs be a good way to do this? In an ideal world, DevOps engineers can template out infrastructure modules for common use cases (think containers, static sites, etc.) Developers then can just deploy the needed infrastructure that will setup and run their applications without needing to be exposed to all the intricacies of infrastructure. If this is true, wouldn't IDPs be the best abstraction layer for developers so that they're not forced to be come infrastructure experts? Has anyone here implemented / built out an IDP for your company? If so, how successful has it been?
