NetSuite Integration Overview

Overview

I’ve spent the past two weeks working on integrations between Bungee Connect and various On Demand CRM suites. At the time of this blog post, I am making available three reference applications. These small and simple applications perform the basic functionality of authentication, reading data, and writing data. The code is well commented and straightforward, providing an excellent foundation for one to base their own code on. Read the rest of this entry »

See the Results of Intern DevFest 2008

In late 2007, fifty Computer Science university students applied for 2008 internships at Bungee Labs. We flew nine of the most promising applicants from around the US to join Bungee Labs for our first “Intern DevFest”.

Over a 24 hour period the students had to extend WideLens – the Bungee Connect calendaring reference application – to develop new features and create a new derivative WideLens application…then present the results to the judging panel.

The nine students slogged hard all day (with frisbee breaks!) and most of the night and then presented their solutions to the judging team the next morning.

Check out the video highlights of the four winners.

Status: Mashup Delay…more tomorrow

Here’s the status of our mashup for the Open Social Hack-a-Thon:

  • Twitter is integrated and performing adequately.
  • Google Contacts is integrated, but we have not been able to fix a blocker bug. (I blame it on lack of sleep.)
  • Oauth is working, but the undocumented MySpace REST API has hung us up at every turn.
  • The main architecture is complete, and seems to work.
  • The main form, while not beautiful yet, is working.
  • Our detail form for the Google Contact type works.

So all in all, we got close, but we have not deployed a new version because the “show it live” part isn’t ready.

We hope to have something live tomorrow…after some sleep. Here’s a screenshot of what we have at the moment (click to embiggen):

And they’re off…

The first drop of our mashup is now online…

…but it ain’t much.

We have a placeholder page that you can now watch for updates.

Our Mashup Plan for Tonight’s Hackathon

Tonight we do the mash.

As my colleague Brad Hintze recently posted, Bungee Labs is hosting a hackathon event for Utah Social Media Developer Garage, and three of us from Bungee Labs will be hacking together a social mashup of our own using Bungee Connect.

We start with no code, three developers, four APIs, and less than 4 hours to make something interesting. Read the rest of this entry »

Bungee Labs hosting West Coast Open Social Hackathon

This coming Wednesday (March 26th) we will be hosting the first ever West Coast Open Social Hackathon. The festivities are from 8pm-1am MST. The event will be live streamed and connecting the Utah Social Media Developers group with the Silicon Valley Web Builders. Here’s the official announcement from Jesse Stay.

Social Media Developer Garage

At the event Ted Haeger, Amy Ballard and Brad Hintze will be hacking together an application from several different APIs using Bungee Connect. We’re throwing around a couple ideas of what to build, if you have an idea for an app you would like to see using Open Social and other APIs contact Brad [ brad AT bungeelabs DOT com] or Ted . We’re likely going to be using the Twitter, Facebook, and Google Contacts among other APIs. We’ll share more details here and at the event.

A couple of Bungee Labs engineers will also be on hand if you’re interested in hacking an app using Bungee Connect.

Update: We’ll also have and XBOX 360 and Wii for Guitar Hero, Rockband, Call of Duty 4 and Halo 3.

New Example Code : XMLUtil

XMLUtil is a utility class provided in Bungee Connect which allows you to convert an object to XML, or XML to an object.

We have added a new code sample that you can import in to your DesignGroup to use as a learning aid, or you can  incorporate some of the functionality directly into one of your projects. In the sample code, we also convert the XML to a string (for display) and back from a string to XML, then to an object.

Though this functionality is not part of the XMLUtil proper, you may also find this functionality helpful. The sample code includes a class called “Function_Examples.” In that class, you can simulate the Examples form. By running the form, you can see the conversions in process. You can then explore the code to learn how to call the different functions.

 Documentation for the XMLUtil is also available at the following location: http://docs.bungeeconnect.com/wiki/index.php/Runtime_Type_:_Utility_:_XMLUtil
