Welcome, my name is Paul Stovell. I live in Brisbane and work full time bootstrapping my own product company around Octopus Deploy, an automated deployment tool for .NET applications.
Prior to Octopus Deploy, I worked for an investment bank in London building WPF applications, and before that I worked for Readify, an Australian .NET consulting firm, where I was lucky enough to work with some of the best in the business. I also worked on a number of open source projects and was an active user group presenter. I've been a Microsoft MVP for WPF since 2006.
Octopus Deploy is a user-friendly automated deployment tool for professional .NET developers. Octopus is designed to make it incredibly easy to deploy ASP.NET websites and Windows Services onto remote machines, securely.
I started Octopus in 2011 in my spare time, when I was disappointed by the state of automated deployment for .NET developers. Since then it has grown to become my full time job. Learn more about where Octopus Deploy came from and why it exists.
