Conversations with our customers reveal that a unified interface for accessing a curated catalog of developer tools, services, templates and APIs is critical for developer productivity and happiness. Developers want to start writing code as quickly as possible, platform engineers want to ensure the software produced meets enterprise requirements and quality standards so they can support scalability.
As these conversations were happening we began to notice the innovations coming from a dynamically evolving community around Backstage. We quickly recognized it as the right technology to enable better outcomes for our customers in the areas of developer experience, release velocity, and software quality. With Backstage, platform engineers can provide a curated experience that is consistent and flexible enough to meet different developer teams’ requirements.

In this talk Valentina Alaria, Sr. Director of Product Management for VMware Tanzu, will share how VMware incorporates Backstage into our flagship platforms, why the curated experience is a core tenant of Tanzu, and how it’s enabling developer velocity and happiness.
