This article was written by guest author Michal Kalita and first appeared on Profiq

I have developed two solutions for users to get informed on source code changes on GitHub, when they are sharing code with other developers. I described the first solution in a previous article. This article describes the second solution. You are welcome to try both approaches, and then decide which works best for you.

Why Messaging Queues Might Not Suck

why messaging queues might not suck

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.

Test Your Knowledge of APIs

API Expert Test

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!
