The guys at Fotango in London have finally launch Zimki
, a web development platform which the guys hope will change the way we develop applications and tools on the net.
It's also a server environment - a place for your code as well as an environment to develop it. Zimki uses a persistence framework to avoid the need to handle Apache and SQL database setup.
It's designed to be a fast and easy environment for the development of net app and service’s, allowing them to be programmed quicker and easier. There are no upfront costs, which Fotango hopes will encourage developers to pitch in and have a go to see what the difference is.
Fotango says that Zimki has been developed by
It's also easy to set up development and staging environments that operate independently of your production environments - and swapped over at the flick or a switch, allowing for an easy rollout of new code.
By handling application hosting, database services and general server support, Fotango reckon that you can develop software quicker and easier that if you did the whole shebang yourself.
Why not take a look at Zimki, then let us know what you thinkover in the forums?
