Here at MuleSoft, every few months we take a couple days off and hold a company Hackathon. Usually these are individual efforts to build something unique and interesting using the technology and products that we create at MuleSoft.

Its about time the Web became more event-driven.  We have had AJAX for many years enabling events between server and browser, but on the backend we are still polling data.

Developers often need to call a API to get data updates, only to find that nothing has changed. Streaming APIs provide a more elegant solution to polling allowing developers to subscribe to changes they are interested in.
