BrightWork (http://brightwork.io) is also a great fit on this list as it enables you to build faster in a hosted backend solution. I’m the founder and happy to answer questions. Feel free to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
I’m really curious why this is being pushed now. We just legalized marijuana and from the looks of it, it’s driving a ton of tax revenue into the general fund. I’d love to see this play out a bit before Salem tries to further dip into the pockets of small businesses even further. Between this and the horrible Portland/Oregon investment scene, it’s a wonder anyone still wants to move to Oregon to start a business.
You should check out what we’re doing at Brightwork (brightwork.io). THIS is exactly why we’re building it. To solve a lot of the frustrations around development hiccups and how you can quickly prototype something minus all the head banging on walls. :)
