Context

At the highest level, one could simply think of it as an interaction between a user and a system. This user is typically a person who uses the app's functionality and interacts with the plugins (we'll go into more detail on plugins later). This person usually works within the engineering part of the organization. The system that this user interacts with, allows developers to create, manage and explore their entire software ecosystem. |
