About the Talk

Get a better understanding of how your builds run on DigitalOcean App Platform, and how to scale efficiently when your user base expands.

App Platform, a new DigitalOcean managed-service offering, was released in October 2020 and has already been deployed over 3 million times. This immense growth didn’t come without its challenges around infrastructure, observability, and release velocity.

Kamal and Nick share techniques and strategies that have helped DigitalOcean overcome these problem areas and the benefits received from each solution.
