Fog Creek Software has launched Glitch for Platforms, a collection of tools

that helps Developer Relations teams.


														
							

Glitch for Platforms allows Developer Relations teams to leverage the power of Glitch and provide sample apps to kickstart developers building on top of their APIs. There is a range of free and paid-for tools, which they can use to create unlimited sample projects, allow people to import GitHub repos, and embed a ‘Remix on Glitch’ button in their documentation.

Users can even create apps with automatically populated customer API keys so that developers can instantly begin working with a real app that uses their own data, cutting the all important Time to Hello World (TtHW) metric from minutes or hours to seconds.

“There’s a huge bug in the way we do developer relations,” says Anil Dash, CEO of Fog Creek Software. “If we compare it to the hyper-optimized customer funnels used on e-commerce sites, the current tools we use for acquiring and working with platform developers are downright absurd.”
