About the Talk

How do 157 people from all over the world scale a web app to 30 countries in less than three weeks? We talk about how we built Coronastatus — an open source web application that enables people to self-report symptoms of COVID-19 — using DigitalOcean’s infrastructure.

What You’ll Learn

  • How to manage an open source community distributed all over the world.
  • Being pragmatic in choice of tech when the clock is ticking.
