Presentation: Evolutionary Architecture: From Start-Up to Scale-Up

  • Presented by: David Santoro, CTO & Co-founder, Carwow
  • Location: Westminster, 4th flr.
  • Time: 4:10PM-5:00PM
  • ABSTRACT: Many young startup CTOs think that they need to create the perfect architecture from day one. Spending many hours creating the ideal microservice architecture before having market fit, and spending days customising infrastructure and deployments instead of using PaaS like Heroku could be the death of your startup. David Santoro, CTO & co-founder of Carwow, will share some of the principles and tricks he has used to evolve Carwow’s architecture from a three-person company run from a kitchen table to a 250-person scale up with a presence in three countries; no “platform rewrite” needed.
