When I decided to put Innovation Games® online, I knew that I couldn't afford a massive development effort. I needed a small, sharp team who could leverage best-in-class tools to help us solve the problems we knew that we'd have to solve in creating a new kind of collaborative gaming experience on the web. David suggested Lift and Scala and initial testing proved that we could realize the developer efficiency and backend scalability that we felt was required to efficiently support thousands of simultaneous games.Luke Hohmann, CEO Enthiosys
Just thanks for Lift. It's just so darn good. I'm one-manning this giant app and I couldn't do it with anything but Lift.Tyler Weir, author The Definitive Guide to Lift
... Lift just rocks !Lukasz Kuczera, Sgrouples
Lift is the only new framework in the last four years to offer fresh and innovative approaches to web development. It's not just some incremental improvements over the status quo, it redefines the state of the art. If you are a web developer, you should learn Lift. Even if you don't wind up using it everyday, it will change the way you approach web applications.Michael Galpin, Developer, eBay
Lift's excellent 'Comet made easy' philosophy made it an absolute no-brainer as the choice of framework for the Apache ESME project. Additionally, the fact that Lift-based applications run unchanged on the SAP's NetWeaver CE Java application server makes this an intriguing approach for enterprise applications in the SAP world.Darren Hague. SAP Mentor, ESME team lead
Foursquare switched over to Scala & Lift last September and we've been thrilled with the results. The ease of developing complex interactive ajax web pages enabled a very rapid port from our previous platform. In addition, the support we've gotten from David Pollak and the rest of the Lift team has been invaluable. It's clear they are very committed to making sure that production Lift deployments get all the attention they need to succeed.@harryh, Foursquare Engineering Tech Lead
Pongr launched our new product earlier this week As you know, we use (and love) Lift, and I just wanted to thank you for creating such an incredible framework. It continues to blow my mind every day!Zach Cox, Chief Software Architect, Pongr
The first rule of Lift is: It's easier than you think. The deeper I get the more I think that the cognitive barrier to understanding Lift is that one expects things to be so much more work than it actually is.Paul Dale
Sgrouples is a social platform with a new approach to privacy and security on the web. Our team pushed Sgrouples from conceptual ideas to a publicly available release in just nine months. Some reasons we chose the Lift framework are its security-driven design and its stellar Ajax and Comet support. Lift paves the way for a secure, responsive real time application that is fun to use and even greater fun to develop.Torsten Uhlmann, Sgrouples
At twisp, we selected Lift as our development framework not only for its proven scalability and security, but also for Comet and superb Ajax support. Right from initial development through the launch of twisp, Lift continues to exceed expectations.V. Tipnis, Founder, twisp.me
