Ever wondered what tools Airbnb used to develop their app? If you’re feeling even more ambitious, do you want to be the next Mark Zuckerberg? If you’ve answered YES to any of those questions, you’re going to love this new app. Here it goes. Stackshare. Did you hear me? I’ll say it louder just in case you didn’t. STACKSHARE! Thanks to this awesome app (yet another app that I’m sure we all wish we thought of), dev’s from around the world can now know all the tools and services some of the biggest companies, like Google, Airbnb, Slack, Spotify, Pinterest (all the huge successful apps), used to develop their apps.
What’s The Catch?
Now, you’re probably wondering why they’re sharing their secrets with us. The answer is talented employees. They want to hire people that know how to use the apps in their respective “stacks”. Whether you’re a new or seasoned dev, the biggest hurdle for all of us is to stay on top in our field, and know how to use the latest languages, services, and apps. Technology moves FAST. The language you know and love today, might become obsolete in the next few years.
Stackshare allows companies to be transparent in terms of what services they use in their companies and allows devs to know what tools and services they should learn. This helps both parties to stay competitive in the job market and allows employees to be a valuable and skilled asset to companies.
So, now that us devs have this information, do we even have excuses anymore? Why haven’t we created the next Spotify or Google?
