The Toronto Cloud Integration Meetup is hosting an event on Tuesday, February 5, 2019. The subject is near and dear to our hearts: “Quickly Build APIs with Existing Services and Data Using LoopBack!” If you are in town, we’d love to meet you as we cover this topic.
Happy 2019! We hope you all had a wonderful holiday season. We’re happy to welcome you back with “In the Loop”! Here’s a rundown of the past month’s interesting news, updates or opinions for Node.js, OpenAPI Spec, Microgateway, LoopBack and other open source solutions. We list them in no particular order, and any opinions expressed in the linked posts do not necessarily reflect those of the StrongLoop or IBM team.
For the past twelve months the LoopBack team has been working hard on the future of LoopBack and LoopBack 4. As we wrap up 2018 with this last post of the year, we invite you to join us as we take a look back at the many developments throughout the year.
