1. A method comprising:
receiving a custom cron script of a corresponding application at one or more servers from a developer of the corresponding application for incorporation into a backend-as-a-service program that executes on the one or more servers and that is configured to provide a backend service to the corresponding application to enable the custom cron script to provide one or more custom backend features to the corresponding application, which is developed by the developer;
enabling the developer to access the custom cron script, which is developed by the developer that developed the corresponding application to which the one or more custom backend features are to be provided, on the one or more servers without enabling the developer to access host code that hosts the custom cron script on the one or more servers, the host code defining a runtime in which the custom cron script executes; and
executing the backend-as-a-service program, including the custom cron script, on the one or more servers to provide the one or more custom backend features, which are defined by the custom cron script, to the corresponding application.
