Vancouver-based dev-tool developers, buddybuild, join Apple's Xcode team

Exciting news out of the Canadian developer community: Apple has brought Vancouver-based buddybuild — a company that makes continuous integration, continuous deployment, and user feedback platforms for developers — onto the Xcode team.

We're excited to share that the buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.

We've always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we're also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver — a hotbed of developer and engineering talent.

The buddybuild service will remain available to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers through buddybuild.com.

As of today, we are no longer accepting new customers. Existing Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1, 2018. If you have questions about an existing account, please contact us.

The analytics that budybuild provide should fit in well with Apple's existing TestFlight tools. Hopefully we'll learn more at WWDC 2018 this June.
