Hacktoberfest 2017 is underway!

We encourage you to take the time to sign up for Hacktoberfest and start contributing to parse-server or other open source projects on github. You can find more details and signup here, oh and did we mention there are free t-shirts?

A security issue was recently disclosed for Node.js. This affects versions of node starting at the 4.x line, all the way through 8.x.

As it stands security updates were released a week ago and are currently available for all active release lines (including 7.x). We highly recommend you update your implementations to patch this issue (assuming you haven’t already).

You’ll find this post in your _posts directory. Go ahead and edit it and re-build the site to see your changes. You can rebuild the site in many different ways, but the most common way is to run jekyll serve, which launches a web server and auto-regenerates your site when a file is updated.

To add new posts, simply add a file in the _posts directory that follows the convention YYYY-MM-DD-name-of-post.ext and includes the necessary front matter. Take a look at the source for this post to get an idea about how it works.

A Parse Shutdown Reminder

As we previously shared, the Parse service is shutting down at the end of this month. Specifically, we will disable the Parse service on Monday, January 30, 2017. Throughout the day we will be disabling the Parse API on an app-by-app basis. When your app is disabled, you will not be able to access the data browser or export any data, and your applications will no longer be able to access the Parse API.

2016 Holiday App Store Freeze

The holidays are upon us! Thanksgiving has come and gone, and Christmas is coming up in just three and a half weeks. This leaves app developers little time to enjoy a stress-free app update.

Pointer Permissions were launched last June as a powerful new way to secure your app without needing to change your code or database. For many extremely common patterns like messaging and profiles, Pointer Permissions are the easiest way to secure your app. Pointer Permissions are now also available in the latest versions of the open source Parse Server and Parse Dashboard.

We’re really excited about the community which is forming around Parse Server and Parse Dashboard. In just 80 days since we launched Parse Server, more than 60 contributors from all over the world have already taken part. Parse Server is one of the most active open-source projects at Facebook, and growing incredibly quickly. This month we’re releasing a group of screencasts we hope will be helpful to developers looking to get started with Parse Server. We’ll span the process from setting up your development environment and running your first app, to migrating your database and even submitting changes on the open-source repository. We will also talk about JavaScript, testing, and code reviews. Let’s get started!
