  • Jack’s got it right.In today’s global business environment, speed -- or more precisely, agility -- always trumps size and scale.Agility means being fast – but it’s more than that.To be agile means being able to move and change direction and position quickly and effectively -- while maintaining control.
  • 80% of all new applications are composite based Agile has replaced waterfall as the development method of choice 70% of the information needed by a developer is not available – no access or not owned SaaS and Cloud-powered customer apps have created “instant on” mentality Current platform vendors have no suitable offering for these transformational projects

  • API Tier for the new Front-edge Shubhra Kar Apr 2014
  • Agenda Why are we here StrongLoop Overview Node.js and DevOps training schedule Node.js certification (SCND) Little bit about our training partner – OlinData Training kick-off
  • ―If you’re not fast, you’re dead‖ - Jack Welch 3
  • Mobile is the new interface
  • One billion consumers will have smartphones by 2016. US consumers alone will own 257 million smartphones and 126 million tablets. In 2016, 350 million employees will use smartphones — 200 million will bring their own (BYOD). Employees pay for more than half of the devices and data plans used for work. Mobile spend will reach $1.3 trillion (35% of tech spend) as the mobile apps market reaches $55 billion in 2016. Tablet and smartphone apps, at average price of $2.43, will grow explosively to $56 billion in 2015. Business spending on mobile projects will grow 100% by 2015. Most major businesses now have a tablet strategy for sales reps. IT professionals will respond to the onslaught by diverting IT budgets to mobile technology. Mobile commerce is expected to reach $31 billion by 2016, 7% of overall eCommerce, representing a compounded annual growth rate of 39% from 2011 to 2016. Mobility is (obviously) a big deal . . . (source Forester Research)

  • So how ready are we for the new UX ?
  • Everyone understands the problem! No one has an answer, until now! Well, it appears to me that the problem is on your end. And thus was born the most revered phrase in tech support.
  • What needs to be built ? Front Edge Thousands to Millions of devices connecting to business APIs creating the new user experience APIs for each device, each app, each screen. Optimized for bandwidth & battery, adjusting to each device’s capabilities
  • Highly concurrent Scriptable (the teams already know JavaScript) Giant ecosystem of reuseable components (just like in the browser) Keeps device-specific APIs from polluting core SOA 11 Node.js is the perfect match
  • Vast open-source community (70 K re-usable modules) Reduce development time by 50% or more Reuse existing UX tools Low latency - Mobile Event-driven and fast by design: 50x faster Non blocking, high throughput: helps scale 20x Why do 3 million developers download every release of Node.js
  • Some performance stats Hardware Utilization Benchmarking Performance Outcomes : counting ―faster‖ endpoints per application
  • Some users of Node in mainstream enterprise Transportation Gaming Chat & Social Analytics & Big Data Multi-media Advertising Financial Wearable & Embedded/Sensor Retail & Consumer Tech & Cloud Exposing enterprise data to these chatty, highly concurrent, mo bile and web apps in form of an easily consumable API helps create ―Rich Apps‖, useful for genuine business needs.

  • Node.js challenges for Enterprise Lack of best practices No enterprise version Weak tool chains & monitoring Missing production-class features: – Auto-scaling – Certified run-time – Event/error management – Root cause tools
  • StrongLoop Backs Node 30 Wrote most of the features & fixes in v0.10 and 0.12 – Including over 60% of the C/C++ code Implemented custom work for clients in core 5 active core authors – Joyent has 1 Maintain 50+ modules (e.g. libuv, debugger, profiler & Oracle DB driver)
