Skyliner was founded to make it easier for web developers to get great applications online without getting trapped by complicated tools, hasty decisions, or vendor lock-in. We want to make it easy for small teams to benefit from great architecture.
When you start to scale up, you shouldn't have to spend time rebuilding your whole backend. Getting started should be easy. Growing as your needs develop should be, too. Skyliner gives your work the platform it deserves.
