DigitalOcean Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: DOCN), the cloud for developers, startups and small-to-medium sized businesses, today announced that it will host deploy, a virtual conference for builders—developers, entrepreneurs and businesses—on June 29 starting at 9:00 a.m. EDT. The event, focused on the theme “Power Your Business,” will enable startups and small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) to learn how to effectively build and scale their software applications in the cloud.
deploy will feature eight hours of interactive sessions specifically tailored to the needs of development teams at startups and cloud-native SMBs. The agenda includes real-life customer stories, technical demos, and workshops on best practices for building and scaling apps and businesses with Kubernetes, managed services and growth marketing. Attendees will also be able to connect with speakers one-on-one and experience special entertainment through an active Discord server.
The keynote will be delivered by DigitalOcean’s CEO, Yancey Spruill, and sessions will be led by customers and industry experts from companies building AI-powered tools, networking best practices and others. For entrepreneurs who want to learn more about fundraising, Techstars’ Chief Investment Officer, Nicole Glaros, will host a session on raising capital.
“If 2020 was about startups surviving, 2021 will be about thriving,” said Spruill. “At deploy, we’ll dive deep into the critical role software developers play in supporting startup and SMB success. In our digital-first world, it’s essential that developers have the resources and tools they need to do their jobs, build transformative apps, and ultimately, change the world.”
