    1. A common complaint about pure-play PaaS products is that they are inexpensive, to begin with, but become incredibly pricey as you scale apps. One of the reasons behind this is that these PaaS products run on someone else's infrastructure, and they often need to pass those costs on to you. App Platform runs on DigitalOcean’s infrastructure, and since we own the infrastructure, we can keep the costs low to optimize costs and resources as you scale.

    1. For the past few years, we've run GitLab.com as our free SaaS offering, featuring unlimited public and private repositories, unlimited contributors, and access to key features, like issue tracking, code review, CI, and wikis. None of those things are changing! We're committed to providing an integrated solution that supports the entire software development lifecycle at a price where everyone can contribute. So what's changing? Over time, the usage of GitLab.com has grown significantly to the point where we now have over two million projects hosted on GitLab.com and have seen a 16x increase in CI usage over the last year.

    1. If you are want pups and/or to support us and our artists but can't afford full price, you can back at this special half-price level with reduced shipping ($2), no questions asked. You'll still get the game + stickers, because we want to get cute pups on every table we can this summer.

      It's interesting to observe that

      • 149 backers backed at this half-price level
      • 656 backers backed at the full price

      What I want to know is, did everyone who backed at full price realize there was the option to get the same reward for half the price? Anyway, that's awesome that they're willing to support this project at that level.
