Modern and scalable API platform aimed at simplifying back-end development created by two Node.js and Fastify veterans
Just announced last week, Platformatic is a startup company with a platform that aims to remove the friction from backend development. It is created by OpenJS Foundation Board Director and Fastify creator Matteo Collina, and Luca Maraschi, a seasoned executive.
Platformatic will continue to invest in Node.js and Fastify ecosystems, and release new open source tools.
“We are pleased to see Platformatic investing in the OpenJS Foundation so early on in their company’s inception,” said OpenJS Foundation Board Chairperson, Todd Moore. “We believe that having a neutral home at the foundation will increase the company’s collaboration and awareness among important developer communities.”
“Platformatic wants to create the best experience for backend developers. Our goal is to remove friction for backend developers, which is ambitious but can be done,” said Matteo Collina, Co-Founder and CTO of Platformatic. “To be clear, I’m not stopping my work maintaining Node.js and Fastify. Platformatic’s roots are in Node.js and Fastify, and as a team, we plan to invest in both the Node.js and Fastify ecosystems even more so by supporting the OpenJS Foundation.”
“Bringing backend developers to the forefront is more important than ever, and supporting the OpenJS Foundation is an important connection to many important developer communities. With the exponential growth of digital experiences and users, the so-called ‘front-end’ has been massively disrupted in the past few years. However, backend development is the missing piece,” said Luca Maraschi, Co-Founder and CEO of Platformatic. “We want to position Platformatic at the intersection of platform engineering challenges and delivery. By creating a foundation of modern APIs, Platformatic is set to remove barriers for delivery.”
Platformatic will announce soon the platform is generally available; follow them on Twitter for the latest updates.
