Many apps and projects are more focused on the front-end, but still require a functional back-end. That’s where Mockr, a tool built by recent graduates Ruben Vicario, Jake Obron, Andrew Smith and Karim Kyler, comes in. Mockr allows users to both mock up a back-end (as the name implies) and create a back-end as a service for exchanging information with the front-end.
