When should you build an internal developer platform on Kubernetes?

What do you all think? I built mine, its been a great six+ months, and I'm a little regretful I could not buy and leverage one of the options on the market. When do you think it makes sense to build an internal developer platform?

There is a great summary on this question on the community site around this category: internaldeveloperplatform.org/when...

I especially love what the CTO of Github said around this topic: as long as possible you should use Heroku, if you cannot avoid having to set up your own infrastructure you should get yourself an out-of-the box Internal Developer Platform. Only if you are very, very mature should you actually build one yourself. Github, btw. built their entire Internal Developer Platform on K8s too. Hope this helps!
