Event-driven data streaming is gaining popularity and Axway, provider of a hybrid integration and content collaboration platform called AMPLIFY, has announced a new feature, AMPLIFY Streams, that allows any API to be turned into an event-driven data stream without server-side code.
When I'm deciding which intergalactic data set to work with, I don't want to take any half measures. That's why I'm drawn to the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS). In their own words, "The Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) is one of the most ambitious and influential surveys in the history of astronomy." Sounds like their putting the project right up there with the greats like Galileo. You can bring this level of astronomical greatness into your app via the SDSS APIs: SDSS cone search & SDSS image cut-out.
