Parse Shutdown Looms
January 4, 2017 / Scott Calonico
The Parse shutdown is approaching – and now that we’re in 2017, it’s getting closer every day.
Back in January 2016, Facebook announced that it was shutting down their Parse server application on January 28, 2017. And – if you haven’t changed your calendars yet – January 28 will be upon us in just a few short weeks. There were a lot of rumors and speculation about why Facebook decided to shut down Parse: as an “aquihire”, to add more functionality to Facebook login, because Parse wasn’t profitable – but, in the end, Parse just didn’t fit into Facebooks new revenue model.
So, come January 28, if you are still trying to run an app with Parse, you’ll find that the Parse API no longer works, databases can’t be accessed and Parse Hosting Services are kaput. Which is pretty much what Facebook has been warning developers since 2016.
