Since we launched platformengineering.org in January 2022, the community has grown from 1000 to 8000 practitioners around the world. The demand for platform engineering resources has also grown. That’s why we’re excited to invite you (yes, you!) to contribute your insight, analysis, and platform best practices with the community.
As we move into the new year, we look forward to continuing the conversation on all things platform engineering. Check out what our community is looking for to kick-start your next submission to the Platform Engineering blog:
Articles between 1,500 and 4,000 words on:
- Case studies. Share your organization’s platform journey from the inception to first steps, building the platform, rolling it out across the organization, and iterating.
- Platform blueprints and reference architectures. Explain how your organization designed your platform, delve into the combination of tools you used to build your platform, and share what worked (or didn’t work).
Articles between 1,000 and 2,000 words on:
- Making the business case for a platform engineering initiative
- Building a platform team
- Best product management practices for your platform
- Conducting user research
- Measuring the impact of platform engineering
- Calculating the ROI of a platform engineering initiative
- The relationship between platform engineering and DevOps, SRE, etc.
- Another platform engineering topic of your choice
We review articles on a rolling basis. We will review submissions on platform engineering topics provided that they are a final version and have not been published elsewhere.
