What It Takes to Build a Developer Platform

In the world of developer platforms, there is no “If you build it, they will come.” There is a lot of competition and developers tend to be naturally skeptical. In this session, we’ll learn the lessons of building a developer platform from Romaric Philogène. He’ll share how he and his team built Qovery, both from a technical and business sense.

How We Built Qovery

In this talk, I will share my experience in building Qovery for the 2 last years - a platform that empowers developers to deploy their applications on AWS, Digital Ocean, and all the other cloud service providers.

In a few numbers:

  • 12,000 developers use Qovery in more than 150 countries.
  • Qovery supports application deployment on 3 cloud providers (AWS, Digital Ocean, and Scaleway).
  • We fundraised $5m from outstanding investors (Datadog, Docker, Contentsquare…) in 2 years.
  • 15 people work (12 engineers) at Qovery.

What you will learn:

  • How Qovery works at a high level
  • How Qovery works under the hood
  • How to build on top of Qovery

Who should attend:

  • Developers
  • SRE
  • CTO

Romaric is CEO and co-founder of Qovery with 10 years of experience in running production infrastructure. Former system engineer at Ullink and lead backend dev at Sirdata.
