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.

How APIs are the Backbone of New IoT Standards

The Internet of Things (IoT) is supposed to have 10 times the impact of the Web itself, which means it has potentially 10 times the risk for complication, and, with its ubiquity, 10 times the risk to security. Each “Thing” we encounter in our daily and professional lives could potentially be connected within the next couple years. And with so many, many more players, manufacturers, protocols, and programming languages, it all gets exponentially more complicated.

MuleSoft at MuleSoft: How APIs Improve Business Processes

Read more on the rising value of APIs and how organizations can use APIs to improve business processes and better align IT and the business. 

Using Anypoint Platform to improve business processes at MuleSoft has been hugely successful. The good news is that with each successful integration, we are asked to do more and more and more, and we need to figure out how to manage the requests in a sustainable way.

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!

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.

If you share your code on GitHub with other developers, you may want to be notified about commits. GitHub has a built in feature to provide notifications or send an e-mail about these commits. I wanted to see, if I could leverage MuleSoft to introduce notifications through alternative channels, particularly through Twitter.

I implemented two solutions. Each has some pros and cons. You need to decide, which one works better for you. The description of the first one comes in this post.

New year, new tips! But, before sharing this week’s Training Talks question, here’s a fun fact about one of our technical instructors, Poornima Sundararaman.

In grad school, Poornima worked on a software project for NASA to engineer a plant gardening robot that monitors and gardens hydroponic plants (tomatoes and strawberries to start with) in outer space for astronauts to consume. How cool is that?

security by design

A convergence of digital forces – notably mobile, SaaS, cloud, big data, IoT and social – is creating massive disruption in the market and pushing businesses to move at much faster speeds. However, with a fixed set of resources and a constrained capacity to deliver on new projects, IT is often accused of holding the business back rather than enabling it.

Wishing you an “API Christmas”

Christmas online shopping background

As Andy Williams’ popular song reminds us, the holiday season really is ‘the most wonderful time of the year’. The same is true for retailers, with UK shoppers expected to spend £42.2 billion in December 2016, a 2.5% increase from last Christmas. However, without adopting an appropriate API strategy to respond to increasing customer pressure for friction-free online and in-store experiences, many stores will be left out in the cold.
