(A talk given at London Continuous Delivery meetup group, July 2017 – Continuous Delivery and Platforms / PaaS – meetup.com/London-Continuous-Delivery/events/240687132/)
Trainline is the leading seller of rail tickets in the UK, with 45m visits a month and 125k journeys planned per day, we aim to help customers plan and save money on train tickets. Over the past few years the technology point of view has evolved from classical infrastructure to a suite of cloud based services. We have recognised a need to present these services as a platform, and to complement that with analogies in team structure. Our operations department has been renamed Platform Delivery. And teams within are starting to structure around this point of view. This talk explores our journey, why we made these changes.
Speaker Bio: Jamie Buchanan is a Platform Reliability Engineer at Trainline.
