OPEN: Hackathon Workshop [clear filter]
Tuesday, September 11



OPEN TALK: An Event-Driven Stack for the Enterprise (Hackathon Workshop)
In today's world everyone is building apps, most times those apps are event-driven and react to what happens around them. How do you take those apps to, let's say, a Kubernetes cluster, or let them communicate between cloud and on-premises, and how can developers and non-developers work together using the same tools?

OPEN TALK: Turn the Web Upside Down! (Hackathon Workshop)
Data flow in web applications is typically unidirectional, with browsers acting as data consumers and web servers acting as producers. But what if there were no restrictions about producing or consuming data or where your application had to reside, whether in a browser, on a mobile phone or in the cloud? What if it were as easy for a browser to communicate with another browser as it were for it to communicate with a web server?

Netifi is part of an open source initiative that includes pioneers in microservices — Netflix, Facebook and Pivotal Software — to develop the RSocket application protocol. RSocket is bi-directional with no restrictions about producing or consuming data or where applications must reside. This allows a developer the full range of possibilities no matter where the application is deployed. A browser can both fetch data and act as a server, serving requests from peers. A node server can pull live telemetry data from clients while at the same time serving their requests.
Netifi Proteus is a next-generation platform based on RSocket technology, providing API management, routing, service discovery and predictive load balancing while being able to run over standard transports (like TCP, HTTP/2 and WebSocket). This results in applications that are easier to scale, less failure-prone and easier to operate.

Attend our workshop for a demo of what is possible with the Netifi Proteus platform. Also, visit the Netifi booth (#105) at any time to get your own introduction to the Netifi platform, and receive login credentials for a hosted Proteus broker your team may use during the challenge. Then build your own application, either by extending the provided demo application or coming up with your own idea.

OPEN TALK: Hybrid Data Connectivity via REST API for Cloud/On-Premise Data Sources (Hackathon Workshop)
As APIs continue to explode, each organization exposes its own unique REST/SOAP/Bulk APIs for consuming their data. And some of them also come up with their own unique query language such as ROQL (Oracle Service Cloud), SOQL (Salesforce), etc. This makes it difficult for an enterprise and its development team to be able to learn and code against all these different APIs.

This is where OData is very useful. OData advocates a standard way of implementing REST APIs that allows for SQL-like querying capabilities using these RESTful APIs. OData is essentially SQL for the web built on top of standard protocols – HTTP, JSON & ATOM – while leveraging the REST architecture style.

In this workshop for the Progress hackathon challenge, you will be learning what OData is, how you use it and how you generate OData using Progress DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline for any data source for your hackathon project.
