StrongLoop

Join StrongLoop and Jordan Kasper for a FREE workshop on developing and scaling a REST API built in Node.js using the open source LoopBack framework and StrongLoop's Arc developer operations suite. This workshop will begin with a discussion of overarching API principles and best practices as well as a roundup of existing frameworks. We'll then dive into how to develop a REST API application using LoopBack, covering topics like model-driven development, connecting to a datasource, adding authentication and access control, and more! Finally, we'll talk about monitoring and scaling your new API with StrongLoop's suite of developer operations tools and the Arc UI.
