As you might have heard, Facebook is shutting down their mobile app development platform Parse which stirred some mixed emotions among developers out there. Parse was indeed a great a toolkit for creating and running mobile apps. Developers used Parse hosting as the backend for their mobile apps between push notifications, storage and analytics.
If you are looking for a replacement to that backend, a rather good one, you might want to try out Azure App Service For FREE!. App Service is a powerful cloud platform that allows developers to build intelligent web and mobile apps that connect to data anywhere, in the cloud or on-premises. For mobile apps, it makes it easy to add authentication, push notification, and data sync to iOS, Android, or Windows app, in addition to auto scale capability.
To help you with that migration, Microsoft released a comprehensive guide with step by step instructions for how to migrate a Parse application to Azure App Service. You can check it on the following link: azure.microsoft.com/en-us/blog/azure-welcomes-parse-developers
Happy coding 🙂
