How do you price your SaaS product while finding the Product market Fit?

SaaStr

Just start with comps. With comparables. Software is very expensive to build, but for the most part, costs almost nothing to ship. It might cost you $0.10 a month in hosting charges per user for an app that isn’t server or storage intensive. So why is one app $5 a month and another $150 a month? The answer is value provided, yes (that’s why Salesforce and Workday can charge so much) … and also, comparables. If your app is about as valuable as Box, then price it like Box.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
