We wondered, “why is it so difficult for developers, like us, to find a platform that makes it easy to create compelling apps with a cloud backend?”
We could not find an end-to-end solution with everything we needed: native code support for any connected device, an events model, declarative security, custom code and all of those things integrated as lightweight services. Everything had to be elegant, easy-to-use, intuitive and delightful. The underlying platform needed to be engine-based for dynamic scaling, to support any infrastructures, to have a published services model and to be able to support any languages, backend and frontend. We liked developing on local machines and insisted on deploying to the cloud without reconfiguration. And we wanted it all to be boilerplate free and reasonably priced.
Since we couldn’t find it, we built it. http://fatfractal.com/beta/
