We’ve moved to MindTouch Deki…Here’s Why.

PictureWe’ve moved the documentation for Bungee Connect from MediaWiki to Deki.

As a web-based development platform provider, mindtouchwe chose to host our documentation. Originally we chose MediaWiki; it being the de facto wiki platform. You might ask, why take the time and effort to move to a different wiki? And why Deki? We were attracted to Deki for its complete, RESTful API. In fact, the Deki PHP application only talks to the Deki API. 

As we investigated Deki further, we found that Deki has some significant improvements over MediaWiki:

  • Better UI
  • WYSIWYG Editing
  • Rights Management
  • Better CSS
  • Programmatic Access
  • I used the How To guide from MindTouch and our migration went smooth and easy.

    Also check out the interview with MindTouch CTO Steve Bjorg about Deki on our web API podcast, the Bungee Line, from June 2008.

    SugarCRM Integration Overview

    Overview

    I’ve taken some time to create another Bungee Connect reference application using the SugarCRM web services API. I have previously posted about NetSuite, Salesforce, and Oracle/Siebel CRM On Demand.

    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 »

    Free White Paper: The Next Evolution in Web Apps: Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS)

    With more and more discussion occurring around the concept of Platform as a Service (PaaS), developers, IT and business managers are doing their fair share of head scratching, trying to understand the business value and benefits of a cloud-based approach to develop, test, deploy, host, and maintain online applications in a single, integrated in-the-cloud environment.

    So what is this Platform as a Service thing?

    The “platform-as-a-service”, or PaaS meme is getting more air play the last 24 hours as news of Google App Engine makes its way through the tech media and blogs. ReadWriteWeb has a good write up and Phil Wainewright’s summation by declaring “Let the PaaS wars begin” I think fairly captures the mood and reaction to the news. Read the rest of this entry »
