As long as you want to gain customers, expand awareness of your business, raise funding or convince business partners to work with you, a pitch deck is essential. It gives investors and customers insight into your business. Even huge companies like Facebook and Google started with a pitch deck.

In many cases, developers will write code and assume it will perform exactly the same or better in production. However, as we’ve all seen, applications that build correctly locally do not necessarily perform well once they are being used by the world at large. This talk will cover the “12 Factor Manifesto”, which is a set of techniques that can be used to build robust, scalable applications. Location: Wayfair Boston, 4 Copley Place, Boston, MA. How to find the meetup: Enter the Copley Place Mall. Head to the Skylobby (up the escalators in front of Barney’s) Let security know you’re here for BostonPHP. They will direct you from there.
