Paypal shutting down Stackmob in 2014 had developers flocking to Parse. Facebook shutting down Parse in 2016 left developers angry and left their apps serverless, and not in a good way. Lock-in is bad enough, but what happens when you get locked out.
In this presentation, we will discuss Apache Usergrid, the most scalable and trusted Backend as a Service (BaaS), and the one you should consider for your next app, whether it be mobile, desktop or wearable. First, we'll discuss why an open source is BaaS is the ONLY long term viable solution for developers. Then we'll discuss how Usergrid is architected to give its scalability and graph database properties. Finally, we'll go over real-world use cases and explain how Usergrid is used by major retailers and other organizations.
