"8Base is an amazing platform for developing web applications so fast, it's secure"
What do you like best about 8base?

8Base is an amazing platform for developing web applications so fast, it's secure, and it allows developers to interact without losing control. The cost is really very good for the value it generates.

What do you dislike about 8base?

8Base just needs to include more base examples to take from there and evolve the platform.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

The main pain that attacks is to develop applications quickly given the scarcity of labor. Likewise, in this process they included tools so that developers did not feel that they were losing control over the application. They use state-of-the-art technology and allow applications and solutions to quickly scale.

"Simplifies our Software Development Business, 8base is a Tremendous Value!"
What do you like best about 8base?

I am the CEO of a Software Development and Professional SaaS Company. 8base provides ease of mind and simplifies my business by providing Professional Backend-as-a-Service. these Services include; AWS usage, Database, Security, Scalability, rights and permissions, Data Model and GraphQL Engine and all the DevOps Services. The value is incredible and allows us to service our Customers and Solution Users at en extremely high level. We leverage 8base for all the Back-end Services and our Developers just need to build the front end Web Applications using the GraphQL (API) calls to the established back-end . 8base also simplifies our use of AWS and Database usage, with predictable costs and virtually unlimited scalability. 8base is also very service oriented and helpful to leverage all aspects of the platform. In addition , the new 8base Application Builder fills a need to streamline Web Application Development while leveraging the Platform / Backend Services.

What do you dislike about 8base?

I really do not have any dislikes. Any issues that have arisen they have helped us understand immediately. Building Front-end Apps using React-JavaScript takes a professional Developer. With the new 8base Application Builder this helps me have the proper developers for the proper business case.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

Simplifying Software Development and handling all Back-end Services. This allows us to have predictable costs with true Scalability. We have an elite team that leverage all the value of 8base.

"Reliable Partners"
What do you like best about 8base?

Solution Advisors foster confidence that 8base is sincerely invested in customer success. Native toolset is vastly extensible via JAVA & TypeScript.

What do you dislike about 8base?

Slack connectivity to internal resources is touted as value added but falls short of potential due to profuctory replies and lack of follow up.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

Rapid development. Ease of standing up platform. Consolidated back end services. All this means we're more profitable.

"It is easy to use and I'm much more productive."
What do you like best about 8base?

The UI is very good. They have taken the time to understand developer needs and built the tools that make the developer's job a lot easier and allow the developer to focus on design and functionality instead of non-value-add technical work.

What do you dislike about 8base?

I'm eager to see the front-end tools that they have promised. The Graph QL needs a little bit of work to enable nested filters and updates. While you can do complex filtering, it happens on the client-side, which is less than ideal.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

I'm using 8base to do rapid prototyping and build software with non-technical founders. The rapid prototyping and ability to implement software that can scale without having to re-platform the product are making a huge difference.

"Simple & intuitive"
What do you like best about 8base?

My company, ITWox Inc., (www.itwox.com) provides a "Virtual CTO organization" for FinTechs and other start-ups - including technology strategy, product strategy, UI/UX design & development/support services spread across our 3 delivery centers (USA, Costa Rica & India). 8base has been a great partner & platform for our customers as it takes care of some of the harder plumbing in any application/platform development (DevOps, Security & Infra scaling) as the platform reduces the time/effort significantly. Onboarding new developers have been a breeze for us & on average it took us 2 days for a developer to know the platform in-depth as well as start building apps. This in itself is a significant gain in productivity. As we work with start-ups, 8base has been a great fit to get to market much faster, with stability & scale of the backend. Overall: very happy with the platform & excited to see it take off in the community

What do you dislike about 8base?

You are limited to AWS Cognito or Auth0 for authentication - but then these are good enough for most of our client base. Besides that, not much to dislike here as it does what it claims to do.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

- bring products to the market as fast as possible - ability to find technical talent & ramp up & scale quickly to the client's needs - have a strong technical base to build & iterate on products/platforms

"Amazing backend as a service with graphQL"
What do you like best about 8base?

I've been using 8base for a few years now and it's been an amazing choice for our backends. with 8base I was able to set up a database with a built-in graphQL server in minutes. The UI for managing the database, creating new tables and columns with specific types and relationships is simply fantastic, The UI for managing and creating roles is great and super simple to set up roles and permissions overall. The documentation now overall is pretty good as well, and I've only had to contact support a few times for questions a couple of years ago, and they have definitely improved the documentation further since. The price for the service is reasonable even for single small developers like me or for hobby projects. 8base support has been pretty great. Overall it's a fantastic service and I recommend it to everyone who wants to set up a backend as a service quickly.

What do you dislike about 8base?

My dislikes are very nitpicky except 1 thing. The only real negative I have experienced with 8base is that the login and register functionality for customers have gone down several times in the years I have used it. I believe around 5 times in total it was down for more than an hour. Each time I created a support ticket and usually got a quick response that they started working on fixing it quickly no matter the time of day. To my understanding it has only been the "loginWithEmailAndPassword" and "signUpWithEmailAndPassword" functions that have broken over time. Which you only need to use if you want to handle login/register on your website. However the default recommended login/signup method is to redirect the user to an auth0 login/register page, and then get redirected back to your own website after the user logs in. (I think this login/signup method is the one they have most focus on and that likely has been functional the entire time). --- When I first signed up 8base had a fantastic live chat support where you could talk to experienced 8base support members live to figure out issues. They have since removed the live chat and the only way to contact them is now the community forum they have, or a support ticket system. This isn't really that big of a deal since the docs are pretty great and I pretty much only use the support if things go down. But it was nice to have the live chat option.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

8base allowed us to get an entire backend up and running in just a few minutes including a graphQL api endpoint that supports subscriptions. This likely saved us hundreds of hours, and many headaches maintaining both a postgres database, and managing database migrations and setting up an api server, building an entire role and permissions system and more. It has been a huge time saver, and provides an amazing UX to manage all this. It's also great for setting up a project quickly for small clients.

"Does core functionality of providing a GraphQL backend really well"
What do you like best about 8base?

Super easy backend solution. I like the GUI for managing the DB.

What do you dislike about 8base?

Well, for the frontend; it does the eaisy things easier but the hard things harder Backend: would be nice to have some further development such as integration with zapier and such. Feels a bit dead in terms of updates.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

It makes it so that I dont have to build and manage a DB with for example Prisma (which is also really good)

"Incredible platform for rapid development - team loves it!"
What do you like best about 8base?

We love the ability to quickly create functions that exist behind a GraphQL API, without needing to set up the additional infrastructure or security. The ability to easily modify and change data structures within the data storage system is a game changer, as it allows for great amounts of flexibility as you explore customer needs. Overall, the platform has sped up development through to deployment and we are able to implement changes or enhancements much quicker. The more our development team uses 8Base, the more positive feedback we receive. 8Base is preferred over even comparable AWS tools!

What do you dislike about 8base?

Overall, there truly isn't much to be critical of. If we had to critique, we would like to see a way to easily tack on a monitoring system to centralize our logging system with the rest of our tools.

What problems is 8base solving and how is that benefiting you?

8base is allowing us to develop without having to set up the infrastructure that goes into building a net new product, including but not limited to, our deployment pipelines and the infrastructure as code. Outside of this, it is simply an easier platform for our junior devs to pick up quickly and start running with. As a high-growth startup, speed to market is key - 8Base is helping solve this business challenge.
