Programmers are very proud of their code. Everybody wants to build the best code as possible and they forget about delivering value to the future possible customers and the idea ends not happening.
I saw in Stamplay an opportunity to make all that ideas that were in the drawer happen—it is easy to use, to setup and it delivers what I—as a frontender—always wanted: data. Now, with my abilities I can give life for them, and finally I am launching the applications I've been dreaming for the last years.
Technically speaking, Stamplay delivers an API and there's no effort to get there. Also, all the integrations it gives us such as Stripe, Facebook, etc. are time saviors—I really just need to focus on what matters most, which is designing a great user interface for delivering the value my customers deserve.
Last but not least, are you experiencing a problem or have a question? Oh, no worries—this is your littlest problem because their staff are always ready to help you with the maximum professionalism and politeness you've ever seen.
AppHarbor is an amazing tool for indie developers or startups that are just getting on their feet. To put it short, AppHarbor is the Heroku of .NET, being developer friendly, cost effective and performant.
Their platform has some nice features including the plugins (integrations with different services such as shared or dedicated RDBMS instances, document repositories, messaging queues, logging and monitoring services, etc.) that are extremely easy to use, and especially integrations with BitBucket and GitHub.
It's such a pleasure to work with the integrations mentioned, that whenever a developer pushes commits to the selected branch, AppHarbor automatically pulls, updates, builds, runs the unit tests and deploys. The cream of the crop is the fact that even the free tier supports this workflow which is practically a continuous delivery approach. And this makes AppHarbor perfect for startups and independent developers.
And, for established companies, I have to add the fact that their customer support is quite good.
Elegant. Rolled out a site fast with auth and automation. I was super-impressed with how as a (very) part-time coder I could just get the job done.
The UI gives a lot of confidence of the care and skill gone into the product.
