This past Wednesday evening, at our HQ in New York, Boyle Software’s VP of R&D Lev Gimelfarb gave an excellent TechTalk on his latest development effort: Stacy. It was a fantastic way to reinvigorate our TechTalk series after a long hiatus! We had a good turn out of Boyle Software employees as well as several colleagues, clients, and friends. Pizza was consumed, beverages were imbibed, and we all learned some new things…
In the past couple of years I’ve seen lots of companies and products moving from monolithic applications to microservices world. As large, heavy web services are being replaced, I’ve started looking into products for REST services integration.
Mulesoft seems to be a good place to go for REST services integration and implementation. RAML is racing Swagger to become #1 solution for API design. Their Anypoint platform is making the integration of third party API’s simple and efficient. Using the ability to connect to SAP or ServiceNow platforms makes this solution perfect for wide variety for consumers. Mapping and transforming data capabilities are great bonuses as well.
On Wednesday, October 26th, Boyle Software’s VP of Research & Development Lev Gimelfarb will discuss and demo his latest project, called simply Stacy:
Stacy allows creating websites that are served from Amazon S3 cloud service as if they are static websites, while having the site content managed in Contentful CMS. The authors edit the content in the CMS and their edits are automatically published to the statically hosted website without any participation from the site developers. Once the system is setup, for regular content changes there is no need to run any site generators or manually upload any content to the S3. [Source]
We are extra proud of our ongoing work for Steven Van Zandt‘s Rock and Roll Forever Foundation – most especially the fabulous TeachRock.org site and it’s amazing free and deep curriculum. And on Thursday evening, September 15th, the Foundation will host the New York City premiere of Ron Howard’s new Beatle documentary, Eight Days A Week: The Touring Years!
This exclusive event is also a fundraiser for the Foundation and its great programs – so go to their site and buy tickets or make a donation. Join the crowd next week for the reception and premiere showing!
We had a great time last week at our annual summer party for Boyle Software staff, family, and friends. Though some ominous clouds rolled in and a few drops of rain were felt, our sunset sailing excursion on the Hudson was a success all around. The sun did make an appearance, beaming its red and orange glow beneath the cloud cover as it sank behind the New Jersey horizon!
Anchors aweigh! Boyle Software’s annual summer party for staff, clients, and friends is this coming Thursday – and what a night it should be! We’ll be taking a sunset sail on the Hudson aboard the handsome 105′ Schooner America 2.0, departing from its dock at Chelsea Piers on Manhattan’s west side.
Dag Kittlaus, CEO and co-founder of Siri, presented Viv – a project he’s been working on behind the scenes for some time now. As he demonstrates in his presentation – video below – Viv may be the next step in the evolution of what he terms “conversational commerce.” Viv can conduct virtually any transaction with very few voice prompts – even relatively complex requests.
