Node Interactive North America Wrap-Up

We’re back from Node Interactive North America in Austin (and full of Texas BBQ, thanks to the lovely folks at Jo’s Coffee) and boy howdy, did we have a great time.

Webinar: Build Simple Search APIs with LoopBack and ElasticSearch

We have a new webinar coming up on December 20th – how to build simple search APIs with LoopBack and Elasticsearch!


Erin McKean (Lead Developer Evangelist, IBM Cloud) is the webinar speaker and will demonstrate how to use LoopBack to help you build APIs to take advantage of the search capabilities of Elasticsearch. Erin explained what else people could expect from the webinar:

“Although Elasticsearch has a built-in RESTful API, it can be tricky to secure and you may not want to expose details to your users. Using LoopBack, we’ll show how to build a simple limited API connecting to Elasticsearch that still takes advantage of its powerful search capabilities.”
