Pattern: Developer Starter Pack

Provide a “starter kit” of materials, guides, and other resources to help new teams onboard to the new cloud native system quickly and with confidence

Developer Starter Pack

The new cloud native platform is approaching production-ready status, and it’s time to begin onboarding teams.

In This Context

Teams onboarding to cloud native don’t know the tools or technologies and typically receive poor onboarding materials. At best, this leads to wasted time, and at worst, teams are forced to create their own cloud native practices, which are uninformed,not designed for this platform, and not uniform.


Provide developers onboarding to cloud native everything they need to start working immediately.Optimally, new developers should be able to commit their first change and deploy it to the test environment on the first day following the onboarding.


Cloud native practices are adopted as the Core Team has planned, and there is consistency.
