In this tutorial, we will learm How Spotify Leverages Paved Paths and Common Tooling to Improve Productivity. The Platform Developer Experience tribe builds CI/CD tools, product creation tooling, and paved paths with a focus on automating common processes.
Maria Jernström and Jason Palmer, two product managers at Spotify, shared how the company enables their development teams to operate quickly and in alignment. The Platform Developer Experience tribe builds CI/CD tools, product creation tooling, and paved paths with a focus on automating common processes.
Spotify employs a DevOps model where each team owns and is responsible for their feature from end-to-end. While this allows teams to be highly autonomous, Jernström and Palmer note "it has also created fragmentation among our toolsets and engineering practices." Gary Niemen, product manager at Spotify, indicates this fragmentation leads to a form of "rumour-driven development" where "the only way to find out how to do something was to ask your colleague".
To help decrease the fragmentation, the Platform Developer Experience (PDX) tribe developed a set of tools and processes, such as the Golden Paths. Golden Paths present a set of best practices organized by type of engineering project, like client development, data science, or machine learning. As Niemen puts it, they provide "the 'opinionated and supported' path to 'build something'". These paths are hosted within Backstage, Spotify's developer portal.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.
