As MVP approaches get more and more popularity, companies want to focus on the interface of their product, and building the backend from scratch can bloat the whole process. A Backend as a Service, like Firebase, is a great place to kick-start your product: drop an SDK in your code and you have data I/O, searches and real-time pub-sub for free. BaaS are actually great tools, that’s why you hear a lot about them, but… One day you may want to keep your data behind your firewall or place some business logic on server-side. That’s why you hear a lot about BaaS being great tools…for proofs-of-concept.

But what if you could have all the advantages of a BaaS… on your own server? Something like a ready-to-use backend you could install withone (yes one) Docker command and extend with your own business logic. Something built on cutting-edge technologies, like Node.js. And oh, it would be open-source so you’d be able to contribute if something doesn’t fit your needs. Does it sound too good to be true? No. Meet Kuzzle.io - the backend your projects were looking for.

Luca is a (very curious) Full Stack Developer. After travelling across Europe studying Computer Science and Theater in Italy, Spain and France, he landed in Montpellier, where he is currently working on Kuzzle.io, an open-source, self-hostable, ready-to-use backend solution. His daily work involves Node.js, Docker, ElasticSearch, Redis, Webpack, AngularJS, VueJS, a lot of testing, a lot of writing and a lot of meeting. He is also the UX guy of the team. That is during the day. As the sun goes down, he is a professional storyteller working in theaters, libraries, bookstores and schools.
