OK so I think it's worth writing just a little more about the Parse shutdown. It appears that the decision to shut it down was secret until the last minute (which isn't surprising). But the Parse Server project was already implemented and actually was even planned for release on the day of the announcement! This all comes from an article written by Fosco Mariotto which gives some background to the shutdown. What a sad situation for everyone involved.

In related news, CloudKit released server to server web service requests this week which might come in handy if you've chosen to replace your Parse implementation with CloudKit. Great news.

Anyway, I'm going to stop writing about Parse here now (well, that's the plan!) as I think it's well and truly covered. Good luck with your migrations, if you're in that boat.
