Fastly, Inc. has acquired Glitch, a developer platform.
“Fastly was founded by developers, for developers and, together with Glitch, we take an important step forward in making it easier for customers to innovate at a layer in the software stack that they could not access before,” said Artur Bergman, Chief Architect at Fastly. “This acquisition brings together two of the world’s best ecosystems for application development into a single, seamless developer experience to deliver globally performant, secure and reliable applications at scale.”
The Fastly and Glitch integration will enable developers to leverage a “Yes Code” environment to take devs from Hello World to deploy quickly and at global scale – and increase the breadth of their applications’ use cases.
“At Glitch, we’ve always been about making it as easy as possible to go from an idea to a running app. By teaming up with Fastly, we’re going to be able to give superpowers to our community of millions of coders and creators, and set the stage for them to tap into the huge potential of Fastly’s globally distributed edge platform in the future,” said Anil Dash, CEO of Glitch. “I’m incredibly excited about teaming up with Fastly, and can’t wait to see what developers do with the powerful new tools we’ll be creating together.”
