Craft of Code is back! We return for a third season of the podcast to welcome more fantastic guests to talk about their businesses and projects – and where Linode fits into them.

Opening up season three is our first guest, Dom Taylor, CTO at Stablepoint. Stablepoint is a web hosting provider that uses Linode to harness the power of 20+ global data centers and multiple different cloud infrastructure providers.

Dom joined to take us behind the scenes of Stablepoint’s slick and reliable service to explore the early days of the business and how far it’s come since. Dom explains the most important factors for him and his team at Stablepoint, including uptime and latency. He also details which features of Linode he leans on the most, how Stablepoint uses APIs in a unique way, and much more.

Catch up on seasons one and two on our website – and stay tuned for upcoming episodes.
