what is a common name for online services like stackblitz , vercel , railway.app, fly.io ? ( per ChatGPT4)
Online services like StackBlitz, Vercel, Railway.app, Fly.io, and others are commonly referred to as “Cloud Development Platforms” or “Serverless Platforms”. They provide various functionalities such as real-time online coding environments, deployment, hosting, and scaling of web applications, among others.
These services essentially make it easier for developers to build, test, and deploy their applications, without worrying about the underlying infrastructure. As a result, they can focus more on writing the code and less on managing servers, hence the term “serverless”.
Additionally, they could also be grouped under terms like “Continuous Deployment Services”, “Cloud Application Platforms”, or “Platform as a Service (PaaS)” depending on their specific features and functionalities.
Others: Netlify, Heroku, Firebase, Zeit Now and Render , sst
