Timeline of Project Ning
My girlfriend Cyan was trying to create an iOS app with me using Parse as server.
Parse announced for closing
Parse service will be fully retired in one year. All the existing databases on parse have to be moved to somewhere else.
Ideas about creating our own server
The idea came out to host a server on a desktop running 7-24 in my home. The server uses free frameworks like Java, Postgres and Tomcat to make things happen. Although the server is not running that fast now, the project can be easily moved to real server machines.
After the idea
The server is currently being built and pushlied on GitHub. The outline of SDK will be soon implemented and published.
