Pitfall Harry meets a greenfield (a.k.a. My lessons learned whilst architecting and developing a greenfield cloud application)
Many developers would love to work on a greenfield project. No pre-existing boundaries, the sky is the limit. There is a real downside to this, as without borders it’s hard to create (and keep) focus.
I’ve been there… did that, got the T-shirt, but I’ve learned some lessons (the hard way) whilst creating a greenfield cloud-native bespoke multi-tenant ERP(-ish) solution on AWS.
In this talk, I’ll take you on a trip, through the wide-open world of greenfield, and let you in on the caveats, the mistakes I’ve made, and the challenges I faced while getting to the initial release.
