In this mobile first world, it’s BaaS (Backend as a Service) that fuels fast-paced development and deployment. Whether it is for prototyping or building a production-ready mobile application, BaaS lets you configure and set up your backend APIs and other services, like push notifications, periodic jobs, REST APIs for CRUD operations and many more, in a matter of a few hours.
Parse was one of the popular choice in this segment. With its wide set of libraries, mobile SDKs, and a lot of other options, Parse had become one of the most preferred BaaS service for mobile apps in the last couple of years.
Unfortunately, with Parse to be fully retired on Jan 28, 2017, we have to think of migrating the apps hosted on Parse.com with the least possible rewrites.
