At Appcelerator, we’re constantly thinking about how we can make it easier and faster to build great mobile experiences with Titanium. We think we’re headed in the right direction but also we are constantly trying to improve. We’re always looking for ways that we can accelerate that goal — both in terms of the timeline on progress toward the goal as well as the speed of the core platform and the smart people working on it.
I’m pleased to announce that Appcelerator is the first corporate sponsor of a worthy new Y combinator backed startup called Pixate. Pixate was recently founded by Paul Colton and Kevin Lindsey. Paul was the founder of Aptana, a company we bought 18 months ago and Kevin was one of the key developers on Aptana as well as Titanium Studio. They are launching the funding of this project on Kickstarter so that more people can participate in the project, and hopefully, their ultimate success.
For $99 or more, you can help ensure support for Titanium happens and release an early license to the Pixate engine as well as early monthly betas. Of course, you can always sponsor more and help out!
They put together this short video of a prototype of the Pixate engine running on Titanium. Our goal would be to integrate this technology into a future version of Titanium. You can help by sponsoring their Kickstarter project today.
