During the week of July 23-27, I experienced several firsts at NodeSummit.
It was my first ever NodeSummit as both an attendee and a speaker (I delivered a talk on The Art of Composability and Extensibility: Crafting a Foundation for Node.js Frameworks / Applications in TypeScript). This was also my first opportunity to meet Miroslav Bajtos (@bajtos on GitHub) in person since having joined the team over a year ago. NodeSummit ran their first ever Training Days (which I was able to attend).

APIStrat takes place September 24 - 26 in Nashville, Tennessee - just a month away! Hosted by the Open API Initiative and The Linux Foundation, this event provides opportunities to learn and discuss the API economy and all related things.
As the temperature hits an all-time high across the world, our team at LoopBack is also hitting some high numbers with our progress on LoopBack 4! In the month of July, we were able to finish and release Developer Preview #3 for LoopBack 4 as well as do some maintenance work for our other LoopBack repositories.
As always, our plan and progress can be checked out in our milestone issue. Please read on if you are curious for some insider details on our latest big release as well as what else has been happening over the summer.
TL:DR; LoopBack is joining the recently announced Module LTS initiative and aligns the long-term support terms with Node.js LTS versions.
Often times, LoopBack models are used to represent real life entities. As such, LoopBack is able to understand how those entities interact with each other with its concepts of relations. While this feature is alive and well in LoopBack 3, LoopBack 4 now has the infrastructure in place to understand relations between models and supports the
hasMany relationship. Read on to see how we have taken a new look at relations in LoopBack 4!
