Infrastructure management can rapidly become a labyrinth of repetitive and complex tasks, leading to inefficient operations. This was our story - managing individual Terraform repositories for every project in our organization, each with its unique requirements. Our pursuit of a sustainable solution led us to Crossplane, a CNCF project that allowed us to create an internal developer platform. This platform, built in less than six months by a team of two, transformed our infrastructure approach. The time-consuming process that used to take weeks or months is now available in an efficient low-code experience that takes mere hours. In this session, we will walk through our journey of building this platform with Crossplane, discussing how we used the concept of “composition” to enforce architectural standards while still providing flexibility for customization based on project requirements. Finally, we will show how you can start your own journey to build your platform too.
