When planning the roadmap of each release, product managers consider a variety of inputs to choose innovative features that meet customer needs and improve current functionality. When prioritizing what to focus on, we always consider our values: trust and customer success. Features that ensure the security, resiliency, and availability of the platform are put at the top of the list, with features that enable customer success right behind. 

Event-driven design: The power of event notifications

This is the second part of a series on “Moving from RESTful to EVENTful.”

As I see more and more companies working to add event-driven, sometimes called “real-time,” APIs to their programs, I am noticing that there are common cases where an event style is favored over others.

2,000 ideas and counting: How to submit your idea to the Idea Portal

We launched the MuleSoft Ideas Portal in early 2017 as a direct channel with our customers to house all incoming enhancement requests. This portal allows customers to submit ideas, view others’ ideas, and vote on the ideas they like. It also provides a view into other requests that are in the implementation pipeline. Since its launch, our customers have added more than 2,000 ideas! And as of today, we’ve delivered more than 160 of those ideas — that’s over 19,000 points — and there are more in the pipeline!  

DataWeave: Taking advantage of the type system

The type system can help you save time preventing errors, find quickly the function you need, instead of looking for it in the documentation, and let you code using types to define different behaviors for functions. In this post, I’ll show you how the DataWeave type system can help you develop in a more efficient and clear way.
