Parse Security VI - Quiz Time

In Part VI of our five-part series on how to secure your Parse app, let's take a quiz and see how well you know your stuff. If you can't handle having Part VI in a five-part series, then maybe you should go read up on buffer overflow exploits. šŸ˜‰ Part IĀ  Ā Part IIĀ  Ā Part IIIĀ ...

Parse Security V - How to Make Friends

In the first four parts of this five-part series on how to secure your Parse app, we've taken a look at all of the different features that Parse has to help you secure your app and your users' data. In Part V, let's put it all together and take a look at a real example...

Parse Security IV - Ahead in the Cloud

In our first three posts on how to secure your Parse app, we looked at your app's keys, class-level permissions, and object-level ACLs. For many apps, that's all you need to keep your app and your users' data safe. But sometimes you'll run into an edge case where they aren't quite enough. For everything else,...

Parse Security III - Are You On the List?

But often, the different objects in a class will need to be accessible by different people. For example, a user's private personal data should be accessible only to them. For that, you have to...

But for whatever reason, JavaScript isn't everyone's favorite language. And even if it was, it's unlikely...

Let's Bolt!

When Parse joined Facebook, we immediately started looking for ways to improve our SDKs by comparing code and learning from each others' successes. We found that there were a lot of small, low-level utility classes in iOS and Android that we had both implemented. Rather than continue to have two versions of these components, we...

New Cloud Modules for Images and Users

Parse is all about making life easier for developers. With that in mind, we've been hard at work adding new Cloud Modules to take care of some of the most common tasks users want to perform in Cloud Code. Today we're launching two new modules: the Parse Image Cloud Module, and the Parse User Session...
