“Music is Code. Code is Music” — Nigel Finley in his thoughtful blog post.
At Crane, we’re huge believers and investors in Developers as the new wave of Creators — empowering the developer-creator has the potential to shape the next few decades.
Hence it was only ever going to be love at first pitch when Andre Erikson and Marcus Kohlberg laid out their vision for Encore — a Backend Development Engine (inspired by game development engines that came before), which frees engineers and unleashes their creativity.
Encore seamlessly bridges the gap between business logic and infrastructure — simplifying all aspects of building distributed systems and writing backend APIs whilst doing away with copy-pasting, automatically instrumenting your application and provisioning/configuring your cloud infrastructure and much more.
This represents a completely new approach to building cloud-native production ready backend applications and a radically improved developer experience — goodbye manual boilerplate hell; hello “write your best product/application code” — faster, better and more creatively.
What makes it possible to deliver this revolutionary experience, is the Encore Application Model which makes heavy use of static analysis to build a detailed understanding of how a developer wants the backend to work, “graphs” it, then helps do it — automatically.
Welcome to Encore. A synthesis between clarity and flow.
And our profound thanks to Andre and Marcus for inviting us to be part of the journey.
