The OneWelcome journey to a cloud-native platform
15 November 2021

Abstract

Only a few years ago OneWelcome (Onegini) was delivering software for on premises installations. Stein Wellberg and Bart van der Schans will present why and how they made the decision to move to cloud-only and what that meant for their company. How did this impact the engineering practices? What changed in how to architect, build and deploy our software? How did they evolve over time?

You will get an in depth look at the current platform and how they leverage AWS services, Terraform, Kubernetes, Prometheus, Spring Boot, Helm, Skaffold, CI/CD, GitOps tools and Serverless to build and run their cloud environment. What did OneWelcome learn (the hard way) and where do they want to go next?
