For the past 2 weeks I’ve been spending my free time with ParseServer and AWS. You can read my previous article on how to setup it up here.
The awesome thing about ParseServer is that you can host it on AWS, Heroku, or your own server. Quite honestly, open source ParseServer is the best thing that ever happened to Parse.
AWS or even ParseServer might not be something big companies are interested in because they are most likely running their own cloud service. For smaller companies or developers like myself who are building apps in their free time just because, having a backend that’s secure, scalable and easy to setup is vital.
