We'll be sponsoring this year's ChefConf in San Francisco, CA and look forward to participating in the Chef community and meeting engineers. The conference will be filled with keynotes from leaders in DevOps, technical workshops, and other goodies – you can check the event schedule here.
Update: As of Friday, April 11th at 8pm EST, DigitalOcean completed its audit of distribution images and 1-click applications . All images have been updated or patched to protect against the Heartbleed OpenSSL vulnerability.
Zhanna is sitting in an empty office with our creative director, making last-minute commits before the looming deadline of launching the new DigitalOcean website. The last pull request is merged and there's no time for further Q & A or browser testing. While the rest of the team is out celebrating the Series A, Zhanna is making sure the website is ready to complement the announcement. Tall order, as Zhanna had only started working for DigitalOcean in December. But what she was able to accomplish not only surpassed our expectations – it blew them away.
Earlier this month, we had the opportunity to demo DigitalOcean for a room full of techies and immerse ourselves in the burgeoning community of our hometown. NY Tech Meetup is a 35,000+ member non-profit organization that supports the growing NY technology community.
The new DigitalOcean website offers richer community functionality and an exciting sleek look for the front facing pages. We hope the message is clear: we're built for you. As we grow with your love and support, we'll continue to be a place you call home as you build your web applications and scale your businesses.
