April 17, 2014

I love mashups. It’s fun to combine technologies in unexpected ways. So when Wade Wegner of Salesforce asked me to participate in a webinar about the new Salesforce Toolkit for .NET, I decided to think of something unique to demonstrate. So, I showed off how to link Twilio – which in an API-driven service for […]

Salesforce.com is a juggernaut in the software-as-a-service space and continues to sign up a diverse pool of global customers. While Salesforce relies on its own language (Apex) for coding extensions that run within the platform, developers can use any programming framework to integrate with Salesforce.com from external apps. That said, .NET is one of the […]

Wade Wegner, a friend of the blog and an evangelist for Salesforce.com, just built a new .NET Toolkit for Salesforce developers. This Toolkit is open source and available on GitHub. Basically, it makes it much simpler to securely interact with the Salesforce.com REST API from .NET code. It takes care of “just working” on multiple […]

Amazon Kinesis is a new data stream processing service from AWS that makes it possible to ingest and read high volumes of data in real-time.

Windows Azure BizTalk Services was recently released by Microsoft, and you can find a fair bit about this cloud service online.

The “integration as a service” space continues to heat up, and Microsoft officially entered the market with the General Availability of Windows Azure BizTalk Services (WABS) a few weeks ago.  I recently wrote up an InfoQ article that summarized the product and what it offered.

In the past, I’ve written and talked about integrating the Windows Azure Service Bus with non-Microsoft platforms like Salesforce.com. I enjoy showing how easy it is to use the Service Bus Relay to connect on-premises services with Salesforce.com. On multiple occasions, I’ve been asked how to do this with Service Bus brokered messaging options (i.e. […]
