Apple Acquires buddybuild, a Company Creating Developer Tools

Apple has acquired Canadian startup Buddybuild, according to a blog post on the company’s website. The firm has developed a “continuous integration, continuous deployment, and user feedback platform for development teams,” and they will be joining the Xcode team at Apple.


Here’s the blog post:
“We’re excited to share that the buddybuild team has joined the Xcode engineering group at Apple to build amazing developer tools for the entire iOS community.
We’ve always been proud to be a Canadian company, so we’re also pleased that we will be staying right here in Vancouver — a hotbed of developer and engineering talent.
The buddybuild service will remain available to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers through buddybuild.com.
As of today, we are no longer accepting new customers. Existing Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1, 2018. If you have questions about an existing account, please contact us.”
The team also notes that it will no longer be accepting new customers, and Free Starter plans and Android app development will be discontinued on March 1 of this year. The Buddybuild service will remain available, however, to existing customers to build, test, and ship iOS apps to testers.
