This includes the thousands of interfaces exposed by an SAP or Oracle, or the hundreds of SOAP web services, FTP jobs, asynchronous batch jobs,
What a world cup! I do feel bad for 50% of the MuleSoft team though (given that we’ve got a big office in Buenos Aires). It’s exciting though, because this was a very exhilarating competition that truly reached a fever pitch here in the US where “football” is traditionally a game with pads, helmets, and ball that doesn’t really roll.
