Such rapid growth heightens the issues developers face, and at Marmalade we’re proud to support the great initiative of the Application Developers Alliance and, through it, the global community of app developers. We’ve been in this industry from the very beginning, we understand the issues that developers face and look forward to working with the Alliance to ensure the continued success of this vital industry,” said Alex Caccia, President of Marmalade.
Banjo Founder and CEO Damien Patton said, “Banjo will be able to continue our amazing growth and innovation with the support of the Alliance. We are excited to be part of the group.”
