Platforms as Contracts

August 10, 2016
SpringOne Platform 2016 Speaker: John Feminella; Advisory Engineer, Pivotal. Platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry (PCF) can be viewed as contracts between applications and the people who build, operate, and deploy them. At the root of these contracts is a core premise: if your application checks off a few boxes, the platform can provide enormous amounts of power and enable capabilities that wouldn't otherwise be possible. In this talk, I'll argue that every platform makes a contract to this effect (sometimes implicitly, especially in the case of proprietary in-house platforms). We'll examine the ways in which these contracts manifest themselves in different platforms, the kinds of contracts that exist in PCF, and how to assess whether a given platform makes a good tradeoff.
