The MuleSoft Training and Certification team periodically reviews the state of exams and certifications in order to ensure they are up-to-date and relevant to the community. Our review takes into account any pending functionality changes, criticality to developer success, and whether the exam reflects the current technology and needs of the developer community.

At MuleSoft, we are very lucky to have a large developer community who have inspired us, driven us forward, and contributed to our growth and success in many ways. The people who make up this community are dedicated to the success and development of its members. One of the most dedicated community champions is Anirban Sen Chowdhary, Analyst Programmer in Hyderabad, India. He has contributed a great deal to help others use and get to know MuleSoft, while applying his own MuleSoft knowledge to a great position at a top global bank.
Everyone is very excited about chatbots as the future of messaging, customer service, information delivery, etc. Facebook touts Messenger bots as AI (e.g. Jarvis) and the press gets excited about how they will change the world. But really, bots are essentially an ESB that listens for keywords and routes responses back to the user. This project will show you how to build one using Anypoint Platform.
Learn more about MUnit and learn more about how to test Mule.
MUnit is a Mule application testing framework which allows you to build automated tests for your Mule integrations and API’s. MUnit is very well integrated with Anypoint Studio.
Various features available with Mule MUnit:
- Create and build Mule tests by writing Mule code.
- Create and build Mule tests by writing Java code.
- Verify Message Processor calls.
- Mock Message Processor.

Apache Cassandra is an open-source NoSQL database management system designed to handle large amounts of data across commodity hardware. Cassandra was initially developed at Facebook to power the Facebook inbox search feature, and became an Apache project in 2009. Since then, it has been adopted by more than 1,500 companies including Walmart, Netflix, Sony, Macy’s and UBS.
Is it possible to create a conversational bot, fully functional, using Natural Language Processing (NLP), in minutes? Good news, it is.
In this post we will show you how to start from the ground up, giving you everything you need to create your own basic conversational bot, using 100% free accounts and software (yes, all this power for free).
The free accounts and software shown in this post have some limitations and it is designed for you to understand and learn the basics of:
MuleSoft’s lightweight Runtime Engine can be used to expose microservices and APIs on any IoT device. In this post, I will demonstrate how users can use MuleSoft and a Python script to create a simple API that lights up an LED bulb 10 times in a loop. To get started, please refer to the requirements, video tutorial, and steps below.
Raspberry Pi 3, LED Bulbs, resistors, jumper wires, Mule server, and a breadboard.

A short while back I wrote a piece, Why Message Queues Suck. The gist of the piece is that for the same labor and overhead required to implement and maintain an inter-service notification architecture using message queues, you can just as easily implement inter-service notification by Direct To Endpoint communication. (Please see Figure 1 below.)
Figure 1: Direct To Endpoint notification is an alternative to using a standard Pub-Sub pattern.
Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) are all around us––whether it is the Google Maps API that enables users to locate their ride on the Uber app or the Facebook API that enables users to log into a number of websites with their Facebook credentials.
Today, the API economy is growing rapidly, with the ProgrammableWeb reporting that there are now over 17,000 APIs available in the market. APIs are becoming an increasingly important part of the applications and devices we use every day. How much do you know about APIs? Test your knowledge with this brief quiz!
