The Rhapsody Demo Application, with Josh Skillings

The Bungee LineAudio
In April 2007, Bungee Labs engineer Josh Skillings built a demo application for Web 2.0 Expo using Rhapsody Web Services. In this BCDN Audio podcast, Josh tells Brad Hintze and Ted Haeger how he ended up tasked with a last-minute project to create a demo application before the public debut of Bungee Connect, and how he went about bringing the application to life.

Jon Aizen of Dapper.net

The Bungee LineOverview
Jon Aizen joins Alex and Ted to explain how Dapper.net provides a no-fee tool for making almost any structured web site data accessible via a REST API. In a past life, Jon was involved in creating The Internet Archive. Jon also helps the Bungee Line introduce romantic intrigue into the podcast.
Punditry Alert! At the end of this show, Ted and Alex speculate a bit about Android, Google’s open source mobile device platform, the Apache License, and whether Robert Love is involved. Please consider this as another demonstration of Ted’s idiocy, brought to you by the Bungee Line.

Builder Back Online!

Developer access to the Builder has been restored.  We appreciate your patience during this very brief planned update.

The Builder is Currently Offline

As scheduled, we’ve taken the Builder offline during the current update!

Scheduled Update and Builder Offline Announcement
We are currently performing a planned update to the Bungee Connect system. Usually, when we update our system, there is not any downtime for Developers that want to use the Builder. For this update, we are restricting developer access to the Builder for a period of about 4 to 6 hours while this update is rolled out.  Please note that this only applies to the Builder, and does not affect any other currently deployed Bungee-powered applications.

Why restricted access to Builder with this update?
The unique architecture and on-demand nature of Bungee Connect enables us to update the system frequently, which we do on a regular monthly pattern. In this particular update, we’re refactoring the object structure to support the addition of Subversion to our revision control architecture.  Because this requires conversion of existing data, we can’t have developers in the Builder making changes while the conversion happens.  That’s why we’re restricting access to the Builder only for this update, and why other currently deployed Bungee-powered applications will not be affected.
 
We work hard to make all of our updates as invisible to the end user as possible in terms of down time, and we regret the fact that Builder access will have to be restricted. We appreciate your understanding and patience in this rare instance.
