I’m interested in building an application on DO, but I’m not really able to lay down money I can’t get back just to see if the service does what I want.
I need to put a considerable amount of time and effort into learning your APIs and writing my app to interface with them, and I’m not keen to have a VPS running on my dime just for this purpose.
I’d love to know the reasoning behind this. Being able to test a product before I buy it is very important to me, and if this is how new customers are treated, DigitalOcean just isn’t right for me.
