I recently attended the deploy virtual conference by DigitalOcean. Btw, this is where I work and my team was actually responsible for organizing this event. However, none of that takes away from the fact that I did actually attend the event (virtually.. like everyone else).

I want to highlight here my favorite App Platform sessions from the event.
Jake Levirne provides a high level walkthrough of the various things you can do with App Platform
Kamal Nasser walks us through building our first web app on App Platform
Chris lives his love for all things JAMStack in this session
Mason Egger shows us how to deploy apps to App Platform, purely using the command-line
Phil Dougherty shows us how to use the flexibility offered by Docker to build apps using languages/frameworks not natively supported by App Platform
Steven Normore lifts the hood of App Platform to show all the exciting cloud-native open source technologies it is built on

UPDATE We recently announced some new functionality which I describe here in this article:
