Sometimes we need to make calls to some RESTful APIs from an AWS Lamda function. Let’s say we use Node.js as our platform. On the surface, there are two ways to do it: Continue reading
Adobe Software announced today that they are buying Magento. Just like Day Software’s CQ a few years ago, this is another good package we like, have experience with, integrate with, frequently recommend to our customers and now it is also part of the growing Adobe portfolio. I think Adobe is reading our mail.
What makes this technology groundbreaking is that Duplex is able to have a very human-like conversation without the person it is speaking to suspect that they are talking to a machine. Continue reading

Guests learned about the capabilities of this complete, lightweight, and ready framework which was initially released last year.
Google announced a major overhaul of its Gmail application. The new features can be grouped broadly into security, artificial intelligence, new tools and user interface. This is a quick first look.
