Orange is my favorite color

CF Summit 2015

Thanks for attending my presentation in Las Vegas at the CF Summit 2015 on “Building Multi-Tenant SaaS Applications” (or being pointed here by someone who did)! If you enjoyed the talk and would like to work on a project like this at scale, we are hiring a developer/VP/CTO type position for our fully-remote team.
