For all of you programmers out there who love to build web apps but hate the hassle, check out Minneapolis-based startup ServerCyde.  Their API manages user sessions and database connections, allowing you to build web apps for the most platforms, in the least amount of time, with only one language – client side JavaScript – and zero server configuration.

I just spoke with Riaz Missaghi, who explained why he and his cousin Amir founded ServerCyde:

You have to know so many languages and be able to set up a server and a database to build a web app. Then you have to reinvent the wheel to build secure user management and database object relation mappers.  Than you have to do it all again for iOS and Android.  We wanted to solve that problem.

Their solutions lets you connect to amazon simpledb and facebook connect, securely, all from client side code, which is supported on the most number of devices.

Riaz said he and Amir had a great time at Tech Cocktail Minneapolis on Tuesday night, where they were one of our showcased startups.  Their biggest takeaway? “Demand for JavaScript-based widgets that you can drag and drop into a WordPress blog, for instance.  That will open the door to having a marketplace for those widgets, so we are really excited about that.”
