Backstage is an open platform for building developer portals

What is a Backstage developer portal? And what magical properties does it possess?

For a developer, it can be the fastest way to create a new software component. For platform teams, it can be the easiest way to encourage best practices. For your entire engineering org, it can be the central nervous system for all your software, tooling, and documentation. Since it has the capability to do so many things, Backstage can be almost anything.

But all that sounds very broad and vague, and is not a very good answer. This two-minute video explains it much better. Watch it — and the next time someone asks, “What is Backstage?”, just point them right back here.
