More about us:
Our platform reduces the development cost of building large-scale backends by over 100x. To demonstrate this, we've used our product to build a fully scalable replica of the classic Twitter product in only 1.8k lines of code, a 99.8% reduction in code to what it took Twitter in reality. Our investors include Max Levchin (founder of PayPal) and Naval Ravikant (founder of AngelList). The Founder created Apache Storm, one of the most popular stream processing systems in the world used by many companies including Yahoo, Alibaba, Spotify, WebMD, and Cerner.
