Replatform: A thoughtful approach to the biggest decision on your roadmap
New technology, growing or changing business needs, technical debt and a host of other concerns are present for any startup engineering team as they contemplate their current and future platform needs. Choosing the best technology is a relatively small piece of the puzzle - a key input but making decisions purely through that lens will leave you in a tough place with your business stakeholders. In this session we will explore the layers of business need, financial reality, technical complexity, and developer experience that we consider when evaluating our current and future platform needs at The Pro’s Closet.
