What engineering roles are most in demand at startups?

via GIPHY I was just reading over StackOverflow’s 2017 Developer survey. As it turns out there were some surprising findings. Join 33,000 others and follow Sean Hull on twitter @hullsean. One that stood out was databases. In the media, one hears more and more about NoSQL databases like Cassandra, Dynamo & Firebase. Despite all that … Continue reading What engineering roles are most in demand at startups? →

Making a RESTful API with Hapi.js

Introduction

As the century dawns, we see new technologies and architectures which companies, startups and developers, alike, are using to power their next big application; some of these architectures have been so throughly battle-tested, that some companies are even scrapping old application just so that they can implement this modern, new (and sclable) approach.

One of these architectures is the Representational State Transfer or REST as the people call it. In this architecture, the server talks in terms of resources, and then uses HTTP verbs to perform actions on those resources. A quick detour of this architecture has been taken in a following section.

With Node.js, it’s not doubt that it’s super-easy to implement a quick RESTful API and be up and running in no time; however, there are quite a few considerations before someone thinks of implementing a scalable, …

MySQL Connector/Node.JS 1.0.4 now on npmjs.com

MySQL Connector/Node.JS 1.0.4 was recently released as a development milestone release. This is the first version available via npmjs.com. npmjs.com is the central registry for Node.JS packages. This and potential future official MySQL packages can be found using the @mysql organisation. For this to work we had to change the package name to contain that prefix and have chosen the name @mysql/xdevapi as this package provides the implementation of our X DevAPI for Node.JS and we have a free namespace for potential future libraries as part of our Connector/Node.JS product.

Given an existing Node.JS project we can easily install the library:

$ npm install --save @mysql/xdevapi …

Taking the MySQL document store for a spin

This is not a comprehensive review, nor an user guide. It's a step-by-step account of my initial impressions while trying the new MySQL XProtocol and the document store capabilities. In fact, I am barely scratching the surface here: more articles will come as time allows.

MySQL 5.7 has been GA for several months, as it was released in October 2015. Among the many features and improvements, I was surprised to see the MySQL team emphasizing the JSON data type. While it is an interesting feature per se, I failed to see the reason why so many articles and conference talks were focused around this single feature. Everything became clear when, with the release of MySQL 5.7.12, the MySQL team announced a new release model.

Major post-GA features in the 5.7 release!

Interesting developments in the MySQL world – it can now be used as a document store and you can query the database using JavaScript instead of SQL (via the MySQL Shell). There is also a new X Plugin (see: mysql-5.7.12/rapid/) (which now makes use of protocol buffers (see: mysql-5.7.12/extra/protobuf/)). I will agree, this is more than just a maintenance release.

Do get started playing with MySQL Shell. If you’re using the yum repository, remember to ensure you have …
