In the early Internet era, we used to say that every company needed to become an Internet company to survive. At that time, many companies either did not know what this meant or were in denial as to the threat the Internet posed to their traditional business. Fast forward several decades, and we find the companies that are thriving are those that successfully extended their business to the Internet. Now, it’s the dawn of a new era – the Platform era. Success in this era may require evolving from a product company to a platform company.

BA support team

In traditional Support teams, a Support Engineer usually receives cases from the customer, tries to troubleshoot them and if they cannot solve the issues by themselves, they escalate it to the product team. At MuleSoft we decided to build the team in a completely different way —composed of professionals with backgrounds in software development, testing, and infrastructure.

“None of the members of Support had actually worked in a support role before MuleSoft.”

In today’s Training Talk, we’re going to show you how to convert and format numbers as strings or numbers in DataWeave. Something we’ve noticed confuses people sometimes is the use of the hash symbol (#) versus the zero symbol (0) in the conversion format.

In this demo, Ethan will show some examples based on the java.text.DecimalFormat class format, which you can look at the documentation to learn more about. The first example shows a decimal number that goes out to the four decimal place.

It had just turned 2 a.m. on April 18th, 2003. I was getting ready to release my first open source project, and I was about to pull the trigger on a name. I settled on MULE as I was trying to solve the hard, unrelenting work of connecting applications and data—MULE was going to take the “donkey work” out of integration. What I didn’t know was that I was choosing the stock ticker symbol for a company that would go on to solve much bigger problems for companies globally. It’s pretty cool to reflect on that now, and it has been an amazing experience getting here.

The word around the water cooler is that  a queue has yet to be created that I don’t like. Whether it’s RabbitMQ, AWS SNS/SQS, or Google Cloud Pub-Sub,  regardless of the implementation, I love queues to death, gobble, gobble…I’ll eat ‘em up. I mean, what’s not to like?

“Retail matters”; that was the declaration last week by the Editor-In-Chief of RetailWeek at the start of their 2017 flagship conference in London. It might be biased for the leading-UK retail conference to declare their industry is important, but after two days of keynotes, breakout sessions and rubbing shoulders with the industry’s most influential figures it’s clear to see that, yes, retail does matter and that the trends mentioned actually transcend the retail industry; they’re applicable to everyone.
