What to use now that Parse.com is retiring?

I have a Parse.com account and I'm teaching a friend how to use Parse. However, he can not make an account anymore as they are retiring. Any ideas on what to use now?

Thanks!

jason chan there are many different solutions out there that offer similar services to parse. There's a filterable list of alternatives at http://parsealternatives.io. The more complete solutions seem to be Firebase or Backendless, but you can make a decision for yourself.

I'm providing one option. But yes firebase and backendless also work.
