The start of the Smoothy blog 🎉

Welcome to the Smoothy blog!

It is Smoothy’s mission to help software developers deliver their best work. Ofcourse, one way of doing this, is through our cloud platform by helping them focus on building great applications, rather than spend their time on managing servers. However, we don't stop there.

Through our blog, we will regularly share educational content like coding tutorials in a variety of languages, best practices in building online applications, and solutions to general computer science problems. This way, we want to make the Smoothy blog a valuable resource that helps software developers build even better software.

Next to the educational content, our blog will also allow you to follow the journey of Smoothy. We will give away some of our internals, talk about how we build and run Smoothy, the problems we face and how we decide to tackle them. You can expect a mix of technical insights, some business-related posts and a few customer success stories. The general idea is that we want to be as open as possible about running our startup and love to hear your feedback along the way.

If this sounds like something that you might be interested in, we encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter, follow us on Twitter, and subscribe to our YouTube channel. People using an RSS reader can also subscribe to our blog by using our RSS feed.
