”Feature-as-a-Service” – A new approach how to develop large-scale web applications

Stage 3

We all know ecommerce, we all know ecommerce shops: When you want to launch a shop, you take a shop system, which you tailor to your needs. Regardless of the specific vendor, a significant chunk of the work has already been done: From fundamental technological choices all the way to complete features such as product catalogue, checkout, or search.

Today, if you want to develop an ambitious web application like carsharing or a new SaaS application, you need to start from scratch. ROQ wants to change this and be the ultimate platform to build your application on, with complete features all the way to a ready-set infrastructure. This way, you and your team can worry about the parts that really matter to your business.

In this tech talk, Fabian and Tim will focus on how the technology of ROQ is set up behind the scenes. They will also show you examples how ROQ accelerated startups and enterprises.
