How many of you use or is going to use Backstage? Any feedback so far? Do your developers like using it? I’m curious to get your thoughts.

@Romaric Philogène: Currently, we have implemented IDP using Backstage, and I believe that its extensibility and composability features have been instrumental in customizing it to meet our specific needs. Backstage provides a comprehensive view of our distributed application configurations, essential links, deployment details, CI pipeline, documentation, and more. This single-pane-of-glass approach allows developers to access all the relevant information about their own services as well as other services. One aspect of Backstage that I particularly appreciate is its ability to streamline the onboarding process for new services or AWS resources. It assists us in creating the entire infrastructure and repository right from day one, eliminating the need for developers to start from scratch. I'm also aware of another similar solution called Port, which is a competitor to Backstage. I am interested in exploring Port further to understand its capabilities and how it compares to Backstage. You can reach out to me if you need any more information related to Backstage or IDP

Hey folks! I'm one of the founders of Cortex (cortex.io) where we're building an IdP that provides full extensibility with plugins, Scorecards, self-serve, scaffolding, etc. Let me know if I can share more, would love for you to take a look at what we've built 🙂
