Description

At GoDaddy, most new software solutions are built using Node.js. The company also loves trying out new business ideas as well. One of the fastest ways to help the business decide what is worth building is to build proof-of-concept applications and see what actual customers think. If the proof of concept is a success, it’s time to put more effort into the idea and form a new team around it to make it more stable or build new features.

Drawing on his experience at GoDaddy, Gergely Németh outlines the evolution of a Node.js application from a proof-of-concept implementation to a mature, prospering product that earns revenue and scales to millions of customers
