In the Platforms chapter, too, the preselection has been expanded to include the additions from the 2019 free text specifications. As with frameworks and libraries, there is a wide variety of platforms with very different use cases. Once again there is a wide scope for interpretation as to whether a technology would now be classified as a platform or a framework. However, based on the feedback, the divisions used here seem to be well received by the participants.
Important: There are platforms on which applications can run relatively freely regardless of programming languages or frameworks - for example, Linux, AWS, or Kubernetes/Docker. But there are also platforms for which development is software-specific. These include Sharepoint or SAP, for example - in other words, platforms that are very strongly coupled to development.
