Mashaper Michele making breakfast for everyone…
I’m pretty excited that we are finally rolling out the first raw version of Mashape alpha. The platform is extremely powerful and it’s opening a new way for creating applications around the world… or at least we hope 😉
Mashape is only available for developers during these coming months. We are still debugging the platform but gradually we’re inviting all developers that have requested an alpha invite.
This project has literally taken our lives for long time, and more sleepless nights will come until we push out the most efficient, simple and fast development platform.
Create and develop…
