Our product

Dogfooding, is a slang term used to reference a scenario in which a company uses its own product to validate the quality and capabilities of the product”

Dogfooding some products can be fairly straightforward. When you are building a search engine all you have to do is start searching for things you indexed. You can integrate your search in to an internal tool and before you know it you’ll be eating your own dog food. But what if you are building a code editor? At which point do you stop coding in the old editor and start using your own creation? Initially we did not fully understand how we were going to run our own platform on itself. We knew that to get started we needed Frontendy to have minimal functionality and after a day of work we were able to create the foundation needed for us to become the first users.

Stone tools were made with stone tools

Frontendy platform is an actual web application, so we decided to build it with the earliest version of the platform itself. It was not an easy task due to the nested complexity of the problem. How do you build something with itself? If you think about it that is exactly how the first stone tools where crafted. With that thought in mind we got to work.
