Confessions of a Platform Engineer: Edge Computing Rollout Edition
One of the fastest paths to success is to learn from the achievements and mistakes of others.
This write-up covers the first twelve months of an edge computing platform roll-out, scoping from the start of the project all the way to scaling workloads globally. We get to follow how a global Movie Theater Corporation masters application management across 750 theaters in 30 different countries, all told by a Platform Engineer.
The learnings from the project are horizontal and this is the perfect read for anyone looking to future-proof application orchestration in many edge environments and where location matters.
