Video of the Week: Pushing Forward with Node

The StrongLoop and IBM team attended Node Interactive in Austin, Texas in 2016. While there, we chatted with developers about all sorts of topics about node.js. Because they shared so many great points with us, we’ve shared highlights in short videos. In February we covered: why node matters; the node community; and the importance of open. We wrap up this four-part series with a look at how we can push forward with node.js. Enjoy our “node – pushing forward” video!

Announcing IBM API Connect on Docker Hub

Sai Vennam has posted about the official IBM API Connect public Docker repository on the IBM API Connect developerWorks blog.  As he explains, “by installing IBM API Connect Docker images, you can run a complete IBM API Connect on-premises environment on your local machine.”

He continues: “Docker is a powerful software platform that automates the deployment of applications inside containers. A Docker container wraps up an application in a complete file system that contains everything it needs to run: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, and so on. Taking advantage of this technology, we’ve streamlined the process of installing and running the entire API Connect stack on your local machine.” Read more
