Devver is a company from last summer (Techstars 08) that offers cloud-based testing and code quality tools to agile software teams. By utilizing the power of cloud computing, Devver’s services dramatically enhance developer’s productivity.

One of the things I always loved about they guys from Devver is their ability to figure out what they needed to go build, and then no matter how hard it was they just put their heads down and built it. And they did it well. We’re just now starting to see Devver lift the covers on their first first service, which is a cloud-based Ruby testing service. This product has recently moved into private beta and now supports the Test::Unit and RSpec testing libraries. They are now actively looking for Ruby developers to play around with their private beta.

In addition, they’ve also recently announced the fact they raised a $500,000 round from O’Reilly AlphaTech Ventures.

If you’re a Ruby shop and you want to run your test 4 times faster, get signed up for Devver’s beta and offer them some feedback.
