Shikhil’s Take on Building Vs Buying Tools | Digital Ocean TIDE

Digital Ocean is a growing community of 60,000+ developers from all over the world. 

Along with providing a cosmopolitan platform for developers to come together and share their knowledge, learning, and resource on Cloud computing, DevOps, and a range of other topics, Digital Ocean also maintains a vast repository of Dev tutorials, Product documentation, and QnAs. 

Shikhil Sharma, Founder & CEO, Astra Security Suite, was invited to the DO TIDE event as a speaker.

When asked to share his take on whether to “Build or Buy” (software) when running a startup.

Shikhil says, “Core of the solution is (sic) in-house, with a lot of dependency on open-source.” 

He also shares how as a Founder he shifted from obsessing over building everything in house to what he calls a “card-swiping company.”

A “card-swiping company”? What is that?
