9 YC S18 companies making things for devs

The infamous YC Demo Day was this week. Out of the 123 companies that demoed, 9 of them are making awesome tools for developers or that will at least make developers' lives easier. 🙌
CSPA, short for Computer Science Proficiency Assessment, is basically the SAT for software engineers. They promise that taking the test will offer you better job prospects, better job fit, and a shorter interview process. If you sit at the cross-section of people who hate technical interviews and people who love standardized tests, this one's for you. 🤓
How does automating routine programming sound? If you said something along the lines of "great!", you're going to love Optic. Unlike most code-generators, Optic actually "understands" your code thanks to machine learning models and some complex pattern-matching. That means you can go beyond basic scaffolding and do things like sync all of your controller code automatically when a model changes. 😲
If you're building machine learning software on mobile or IoT devices, you're probably more interested in training your models than managing their performance. numericaal wants to help optimize and manage your models, so you can do just that. They offer model-resource optimization, cross-platform analytics, and identify bottlenecks. 🤖
