Pusher partners with key API providers to release free subscription package for developers
31 May 2018, London, UK - Pusher, the realtime API company that helps developers build communication and collaboration features for their apps, today released the Pusher Developer Package. This pack is aimed at developers and will offer them free access to 13 key services they need for building great applications.
Pusher is joined in this project by great service suppliers like Algolia, Auth0, ButterCMS, Chargebee, Cloudflare, Codeship, DataDog, DigitalOcean, Instabug, MongoDB, Mux.com, Nexmo and SendGrid.
The Pusher Developer Package is one of Pusher’s ways to give back to its developer community around the world, as the company has been working closely with developers since its inception in 2011.
One of the company values is Be Generous, which reflects strongly in the way Pusher interacts with its community of over 250,000 developers. The project will be available to developers to claim during the month of June and it offers free subscription services for up to 1 year. The total value of the Pusher Developer Pack will save developers a $10,000 investment in their technology stack.
Developers can claim free credits and subscriptions for the key APIs they need for their apps, from hosting, realtime communications, data storage and authentication to email, data measurement and search.
Zan Markan, Developer Evangelist, Pusher, comments:
“We are expecting our Developer Package to be a great go-to resource for developers who are either freelancing or working in smaller companies or startups. As Pusher is a company built by developers for developers, we know the key struggles developers go through when starting to build their projects and getting them to market. This is why we want to enable them to have access to the resources they need to build great products and focus on innovation rather than worry about infrastructure.”
Paul Ford, VP of Community Development, SendGrid, comments:
"We are happy to partner with Pusher on this project to help developers build great apps. We care about saving them time and helping them overcome the challenges of reliably delivering emails as their products grow. This is why we are generously providing them with a SendGrid Accelerate PRO Plan for a year and access to free mentorship as well as our global network of accelerators and early-stage VC funds."
Tatiana Morozova, Sr. Digital Marketing Manager at MongoDB comments:
“MongoDB is the leading modern, general purpose database created so developers can focus their time and energy on building great applications, instead of working around the database. We look forward to seeing what people are able to build with MongoDB in the Pusher Developer Package.”
