You are in control - the tools we use to give teams operational ownership
We will take a look at the technical solutions we use to enable operational ownership for our teams. In three years, GetYourGuide has moved from a monolithic application owned by a couple of teams to more than a hundred applications across almost twenty teams. To allow a high level of autonomy, teams can use AWS, Terraform, Spinnaker, Datadog and internal tools for operation. This is the story of how that is set up: The actions that went well and the ones that got a lot of pushback from teams making us adjust the approach.
