In this article we'll look at how the Messaging as a Service platform Ably.io uses gRPC to optimize its service's streaming capabilities. We'll provide a brief overview of the Ably.io tech stack and then we'll look at how gRPC is used to optimize communication in the service's control plane.
In this series we've presented the basics of what the gRPC specification is and how it works. In this installment, we will take a real-world look at how the Source Control Management Service GitLab adopted gRPC when it refactored its server-side architecture into the Gitaly project.
An essential part of any API strategy is to engage with your developer ecosystem. This interview is the first in a series where ProgrammableWeb talks to providers about their best practices for engaging with developers. We talk with Nick Tran from Postman to learn about how he set up its strategy.
This report provides a comprehensive overview of the API business models being used by providers today. It revisits the old API business models to see what has changed and also identifies all of the newcomers based on real-world observations across the API economy over the last five years.
In this article we're going to look at how gRPC is used by Kubernetes in its Container Runtime Interface (CRI) technology. Bit first, why aren't we seeing that much gRPC on the front-end? It's a question that's been asked many times now and it is one that is well worth answering.
It is entirely possible to make it so that an API layer serves as the master control center for all activity taking place inside and outside a computing domain. In other words, an API layer can be the one ring that rules them all, which is the approach seen in a Kubernetes installation.
In this article, we're going to take a detailed look at gRPC. We're going to cover the essentials of gRPC architecture in terms of specification and implementation. Then, we're going to take a detailed look at the underlying concepts and practices required to create a gRPC API.
Last week’s Supreme Court oral arguments regarding Oracle v. Google were the culmination of a decade-long legal battle between the two tech giants. Frustratingly, only questions remain as the oral arguments were dominated by the usual search for a legal precedent.
gRPC is an API framework that allows a program in one location on the internet to pass data to a distinct function in another program at another location on the internet. In this article, we're going to discuss how gRPC emerged on the landscape of distributed computing and explain the technology.
Building websites, especially content-heavy sites, that are fast, scalable, and flexible that deliver superior performance is more complex than creating a simple website. Adopting a MACH approach is one of the effective ways to implement this. This article shows you how to utilize MACH technologies.
Progressive Web Apps are built from common web technologies but offer an experience rivaling a native app. A number of big brands such as Adidas, Lancome USA and others have trasnformed their sites to PWAs. This article looks at some of the tools developers can use to build PWAs.
Apps that use location data present challenges to developers. Users expect seamless experiences with up-to-date, reliable data – a significant design and engineering challenge. How can developers deliver stellar user experiences? Here are four best practices for building location-based apps.
