Introduction

An Internal Developer Platform designed to match the specific needs of your company will boost your delivery and developer experience. Humanitec is the fastest way to build your own Internal Developer Platform.

You've probably heard about Internal Developer Platforms before. Maybe you started building one yourself. If you haven't, you can think of an Internal Developer Platform as a Platform-as-a-Service (like Heroku) but on top of the tech and tools you already use. This documentation will help you to get started with Humanitec. Let's start with some good news: while Internal Developer Platforms cover very complex processes, setting up your own Internal Developer Platform with Humanitec is very simple.

It's crucial to understand that there are two types of user of an Internal Developer Platform. The DevOps team is the team that is in full charge. They wire up the Internal Developer Platform, manage access and permissions, and set up automation rules and baseline configurations. The application developers are the end-users of the Internal Developer Platform. They use the UI and the CLI (maybe even the API) to spin up fully-provisioned environments, deliver applications, and collaborate on your Internal Developer Platform.

If you are responsible for DevOps...

... you might first be interested in finding out what Humanitec is and how it can help you to stay in full control while avoiding repetitive tasks and tickets from your application developers.

You might also be interested in seeing the actual product in action without setting it up for your own organization yet.

Next, you might just want to get your hands dirty but not waste time wiring up everything to your infrastructure. Our free-trial has a default infrastructure connected out of the box so you can start your first app in 5 minutes.

You'll see that the developer experience is super simple and intuitive. This might the right time to wire up your infrastructure and tools. We'll show you how simple it is to get to version 1 of your Internal Developer Platform in less than 30 minutes.

At this point, we're sure it's important for you to understand how we price.

Now you might want to add team-members from the DevOps team as well as application developers. Humanitec has a granular RBAC model to help you define who is allowed to spin up what.

As your application developers start onboarding make sure they have all the information they need.

As you are going into details, our How-to-Guides provide everything you need.

If you're not sure about wordings the Concepts page is great. For debugging we have a Troubleshooting page and if you are diving deep check our API Docs.
