Hello all, I am Dan Wolf and I lead a Platform Engineering team at BlackRock. My team builds reusable building blocks / services that accelerate development speed and enable technical innovation for engineers. We do a lot on Google cloud and on prem. Looking forward to connecting.
Hi @D Wolf, sound interesting
can we discuss more about the building block /services which accelerate development speed
because Im looking at how to improve developer experience and how shape our platform gonna be
would be really interesting to hear what services and building blocks you have built
Sure. Reusable building blocks can be REST APIs (basic examples we have built are an email sender service and a logging service, ranging to more custom business specific examples) and Python libraries of reusable common functions (mostly for ETL with various data sources). These save development time and energy because they can simply be stitched together when building something new.
Feel free to DM!
