Paul Stovell tells us about the story of Octopus Deploy.

From the description:

In 2011, while stuck in a meeting, I started hacking on an idea. The idea became a prototype, and then a product. It is now used by thousands of customers around the world, and employs 8 people.

In this presentation, I’ll take you through the short history of Octopus Deploy, and where we are going. I’ll also share some of the lessons we’ve learnt, and mistakes we’ve made, along our journey building software that is installed on-premises by thousands of customers in different environments. I’ll discuss how building software as an ISV is fundamentally different to Enterprise software, and tools and approaches that you might use if you decide to start your own product company.

Take the Poll!
