“We have much more visibility and much more momentum” with the Facebook brand attached, said Parse CEO Ilya Sukhar. “We’re really happy with it.”
Mobile backend-as-a-service Parse is rolling out five new products today, all of them sure to be big hits with the developer community, from game devs to iPhone devs to analytics nerds and beyond.
Likening the backend-building process to spending a day at the Department of Motor Vehicles, Parse founder Ilya Sukhar said, “I could probably do better by replacing the DMV.”
Just days after landing on Facebook’s campus, the founder of Parse says there will be no changes to his business — and that means Facebook is increasingly a multiplatform development tool.
Y Combinator startups Stripe and Parse form a partnership to make it easy for developers to integrate payments into their mobile apps.
