Haha yes!
Heck no

Cloud complexity is at full throttle. What started as a promising way for developers to rapidly build scalable web services has turned into the anti pattern for the next generation. We need a faster, simpler and more affordable way to leverage services in the Cloud.

Micro (aka M3O) was built with this in mind. To help developers 10x without dealing with the likes of AWS. If you're interested to learn more, register and try it out now.

About Us

In 2013 a few of us met at a ride hailing startup in London called Hailo. Back then we were competing against Uber and pushed hard to scale our technology to compete. It's there we cut our teeth on AWS and the cloud complexity we all had to endure just to ship a mobile app.

In 2015, Micro started life as a distributed systems development framework and became a popular open source project that still lives on today. That however only solved one half of the problem. It's not just the development of cloud services that's difficult, it's also how you consume them.

M3O is a new API platform. One that focuses entirely on the developer experience. We do away with endless marketing spiel, thousands of services and a sea of docs. Our hope, by just giving you some useful APIs and examples, you'll be able to move 10x faster than before.
