In this world today more people than ever can get the knowledge and skills to become great entrepreneurs and developers. And more people than ever do actually become great. Today more apps are being developed by more people as the knowledge of programming quickly reaching down to the individual level of society.
This leads to increased competition from companies that else wouldn’t be able to compete. Their big advantage is that they can outsource almost everything except their core functionality to various cloud services. And that way create their apps better and faster.
There are a lot of third-party solutions in the cloud, competing to relieve you of the burden of coding everything yourself. Below are some affordable major time savers.
Relieves you from all the struggle that comes with hosting your own servers. Also offers a lot of other services such as data storage, file storage, load balancing, etc.
Don’t waste time on basic but necessary stuff like user authentication, sign up, invoicing, payments and all the other functionality related to user management. With UserApp you can add user management to your apps with minimum effort.
It’s not always that easy to get your welcome emails to the inbox. Email deliverability require skills and is time-consuming. Outsource this to SendGrid to make sure that your users get their welcome emails. Another plus is that you don’t need your own servers and you get some useful statistics at the same time. To make it even simpler, check out Customer.io.
Sometimes your apps are simpler and don’t require custom software or architectures. Then a PaaS could be a better fit than let’s say Amazon Web Services. Deploy your Ruby/Node.js/Python/Java app with Heroku and put it in production instantly.
