For today’s podcast, App47 CTO Andy Glover sat down with Kinvey CTO Morgan Bickle to talk about Backend as a Service, better knows as BaaS. True to form, Andy wastes zero time in asking Morgan just what the heck that is.

The answer, of course, requires a bit of backstory. Morgan explains how mobile developers have, until now, had two options when it comes to building a backend: IS or Platform as a Service (PaaS). Both had challenges, as in either biting off more than you needed to chew for the former, or being restricted to Ruby with the latter.

So here comes Kinvey with BaaS, and a fresh approach to backend building. Click here to give a listen and hear Morgan explain that in detail.
