Facebook is shutting down its Parse developer platform
Facebook is shutting down Parse, a mobile development platform that it acquired in 2013 for $85 million. The shut down was announced via a blog post by Parse co-founder Kevin Lacker, who says that developers leveraging the platform will have a year to migrate their apps before Parse shuts down completely on January 28, 2017. Says Lacker:
For those unfamiliar, Parse is a platform for handling server backend, push notifications and other tools that allow developers to speed up development of mobile apps. Amazon, Microsoft and Google offer similar tools, and Parse says that it will offer tools for migrating databases and more.
