Let's dance

Hello developer,
The other day, we sent out press releases in Sweden and USA, proclaiming the launch of our platform Cloudo. Additionally we have created accounts and invited developers and other handpicked users to take a look at the system. At this stage of our launch, we are targeting developers and I have initiated IM-sessions with several of the invited developers and the pattern is clear; there is an initial skepticism and slight resistance but after discovering features and advantages, some overcame their initial thoughts and the rest even became euphoric.

But what are the benefits for the common developer?

Developing a moderate solution for the web usually requires several technologies: clientside-, serverside-programming as well as database-knowledge. Commonly, these technologies each require its experienced programmer to put the correct and logical piece in place and achieve a well-working solution. Of course, the solution often requires updates and modifications and that in turn results for even more areas in which misinterpretations and errors can occur, because these modifications requires, in worst case scenario, that all of the programmers mentioned earlier are involved.

With Cloudo, we aim to simplify this process by eliminating some steps and integrate others into our platform, so that the developer only needs to work with a single file which is much easier to overview and extend. Notice that the platform will enable same type of functionality as the previous example. The difference will be that it will be faster and with several default graphical user interfaces. Interface and technology are separated so that technically oriented people can focus exclusively on technology and graphical artists can focus solely on interface related enhancements.

Most importantly, as developer you will not need to worry about whether Cloudo is running in Firefox, Internet Explorer or Safari. The support of several browsers is important to us and we will deal with that issue and it will be transparent for you as a developer.

Metaphorically speaking; on our dance floor, we will do our best efforts to accommodate your demands and to enable you to put up the show you want, whether your need is change of music or scenery. We want to adapt and dance to whatever you want and facilitate as much as possible for you in your quest.
We will not limit you unlike other environments; only play same old boring and outdated disco music all the time.

Let’s dance…

This project looks very nice. When can we test the platform and API?

This is such an exciting idea. I look forward to seeing it live in the future.
