As an application developer you are faced with a choice: do you leave it up to your users to install and host your software (raising the barrier of entry to people who know how to administer servers), or do you try to offer people a free or donation based service and resign yourself to endless pager duty and the inevitability of drop-everything patches when The Next Heartbleed is disclosed?
Sandstorm is a platform that aims to make developing free and open web apps easy, fun, and safe.
