Tutorial B

Addressing system complexity development with Platform Engineering


$500 USD each


Monday – February 26, 2024


8:00 AM – 4:30 PM PT


Short Abstract : Platform economy has taken over many industries. It essentially has a network effect on the way services between industries are consumed. Instead of competing, businesses often leverage each other’s strengths to enhance their business. They engage each other in coopetition rather than competition.

Modules: Day long Platform Engineering tutorial will cover core main modules and tentative schedule as follow. Course break can be adjusted to align other tutorials.
