If you operate in a fast-growing start-up environment, it is critical that your cloud applications meet the following criteria:
- Flexible: so that it is easy to change your application code, configuration, and ultimately behaviour
- Scalable: so that the path from 100 to 100 thousand users will be easier to follow
- Resilient: which translates to better uptime & correct application behaviour for your customers
The Twelve-Factor App is a set of principles for building applications that meet this criteria.
Recently I was invited to give a talk on this topic at a local dev meetup called DevsConnect. You can find the talk below. Hopefully it is useful!
