Join Michael Lehman for an in-depth discussion in this video Using Parse for notifications, part of Android App Development: Internet of Things.
- We talked about using Backend as a Service infrastructure…for doing notifications and computations.…Let's take a look at a specific…instance of that called parse.…Parse is what's known as Platform as a Service,…and that's because it not only provides Backend services…but it also provides computation.…It's one of many different services,…and other examples to know are Dropbox,…there's one called Backendless,…and there's another company called Urban Airship.…So let's go take a quick look at Parse.…So Parse provides the Parse Core…which allows you to post data, monitor things,…it also provides push notifications…and it also provides analytics.…
In Parse Core, you can save data in the cloud,…you can make your apps connect up to social networks,…you can provide local data storage,…and you provide web presence for your apps…without the hassle of maintaining your own services.…You can also run custom app code in the parse cloud.…That means you can do certain kinds…of your own custom analytics or computations…that are beyond the device that you're holding in your hand.…
