Test APP to SaaS Business Journey on DO's App Platform

What I built

We have built SaaS Application for Gamification.
It's called - Virtual Scratch-Off Cards Generator!

Category Submission:

Built for Business

App Link

Description is Virtual Scratch-Off Cards Generator!
Scratch-off Cards Gamification is a proven technique that motivates customers, employees, and learners. They create fun, engaging challenges that increase productivity and retention through incentivizing positive behaviors.


(What made you decide to build this particular app? What inspired you?)
We are already using Digital Ocean's droplet to deploy our APIs and Front end. But we found that is difficult to manage, maintain, and mainly hard to scale as we are not from a DevOps background.
The recent incident of heavy load on the server makes us think about an alternative solution for future scaling and at that time Do's App Platform comes as a savior for us :)

How I built it

(How did you utilize DigitalOcean’s App Platform? Did you learn something new along the way? Pick up a new skill?)
Recently we came across the New DigitalOcean’s App Platform and quickly created demo apps to give a try and it's just gone smoothhhhh....
Then we moved all our existing droplets to App Platform and never went back.
It's a really awesome experience to date
Easy to Deploy
Easy to Manage
Easy to Scale
Free for Static Website Deployments
What else do you need to scale your business?

Additional Resources/Info

As of now, we are using
3 APPs to deploy our whole SaaS Application
1 Managed Database
1 Space for Images
