What Happened:

Shares of software development tools maker JFrog (NASDAQ:FROG) jumped 7.53% in the after-market session after the company reported first-quarter results that exceeded analysts' revenue, operating income, and earnings per share (EPS) expectations. Customer growth also accelerated, though net revenue retention rate declined. In addition, revenue guidance for the next quarter and full year were in line with Consensus estimates. Overall it was a strong quarter for the company.
