I am thrilled to be announcing this brand new consultancy. For a long time I have seen the need for greater professional assistance in the world of Appium automation, and the time has come to step out and make it happen. The idea behind Cloud Grey ("Appium services") is simple, and will no doubt expand and grow over time. Regardless of what it becomes, I am confident that it will enable me the time and space to continue contributing to the Appium project.
There's a lot to be excited about with Appium right now. New features, new docs, new drivers, and AppiumConf right around the corner. Of course, the world of mobile automation is as confusing and volatile as ever. I hope that Cloud Grey will help Appium users to further understand the bewildering array of choices faced when starting out automating their mobile apps.
I am particularly enthusiastic about the fact that Cloud Grey, even before our official launch, has joined the JS Foundation. The JS Foundation is the non-profit foundation that hosts the Appium project, along with a number of other important projects in the JS ecosystem. Given that Appium relies completely on this ecosystem, and the same is true of Cloud Grey, it's only right to support the ecosystem financially.
Last, but not least, we are also launching Appium Pro, our new weekly Appium newsletter. It's designed to share interesting tips and tricks for using Appium more effectively, along with any important news from the community. Go on, subscribe now!
