Accelerate your Backstage adoption with experience, insight and practical advice from Backstage contributors.
We are early adopters, core contributors, and leaders in the Backstage community. We have extensive experience with Backstage and have led Backstage, Developer Experience, and Internal Developer Platform (IDPs) projects that support over 100k developers. We have indispensable knowledge to help you, your team, and your organization reach your Backstage project goals.
Backstage is a powerful tool because it comes complete with architecture, many plugins, and best practices. With power comes a learning curve that can be difficult to master without help. Frontside gives your team the information they need to be productive with Backstage.
Companies are using Backstage to improve developer experience, improve employee retention and build Internal Developer Platforms. Frontside has seen firsthand how successful Backstage adopters design their roadmaps.
When Backstage doesn't do what your team needs, modifying Backstage without applying changes upstream makes upgrading difficult and locks you out of using the latest features of Backstage. Frontside keeps your team unblocked by contributing changes to the Backstage project so you can always upgrade and quickly get the latest features.
Each organization is unique. Solutions to your ambitious initiatives may not exist in the open-source Backstage project. With Frontside by your side, you can take on any initiative knowing that your team can reach your goals. Frontside can help your team architect, build and optimize your Backstage portal.
As your Backstage project grows, so does the risk of breaking existing features. Reliable testing practices can catch problems before they impact your users' productivity. Frontside helps DX teams implement Backstage ingestion and integration testing practices that give you confidence without blocking your team from shipping new Backstage features.
