Free 1-hour Workshops
Join us for one or both of our free 1-hour hands-on workshops. Bring your own laptops and we’ll provide the rest, including our developers who will be there to answer any questions as you explore the technology.
Abstract: LoopBack 4 is an API creation framework that has been rewritten from the ground up and features a new programming interface, OpenAPI support and so much more. In this workshop, you can create your own ToDo REST APIs with LoopBack 4 using Node.js and TypeScript. First, scaffold a LoopBack 4 application using the CLI tool. Then, add LoopBack artifacts to connect to a data source. Finally, implement the operations defined by the REST APIs and play with it. If you want more, you can even create GraphQL APIs in the same application. You’ll experience the real magic and find out what’s behind the scene. Whether you’re an existing LoopBack 3 user or new to LoopBack 4, don’t miss this workshop!
Abstract: Create, Deploy, Monitor, and then Breath Easy. Learn how to take a simple Express.js application and make it “cloud native”, adding health checks, monitoring with Prometheus, and request tracking with Zipkin, and more. You’ll deploy your services to Docker and Kubernetes locally and then to the Cloud.
Hands-on QuickLabs (15 minute)
Abstract: Serverless computing simplifies development of cloud-native applications, especially micro-service-oriented solutions. Come and explore hands-on cloud-native development and build then deploy a number of Serverless Cloud Functions, including web actions that can be invoked from the browser or from Microservices, all inside a browser.
Abstract: Experience aspects of our 1-hour workshop in 15 minutes. Explore cloud-native development focused on Express.js through the App Service Console and leverage health checks, AppMetrics dashboard, Prometheus, Zipkin, and more. Deploy your services to Docker locally and then to the Cloud.
Abstract: LoopBack 4 is an API creation framework that has been rewritten from the ground up and features a new programming interface, OpenAPI support and so much more. In this QuickLab, you can create your own ToDo REST APIs with LoopBack 4 using Node.js and TypeScript and its CLI tool. First, scaffold a LoopBack 4 application. Then, add LoopBack artifacts such as models, datasources, and repositories to your application. Finally, create controllers which allow you to implement the operations defined by the REST APIs and play with it. If you want more, you can even create GraphQL APIs in the same application. You’ll experience the real magic and find out what’s behind the scene.
