During a recent trip to NodeJS Interactive in Vancouver last October, Zach(Chief Product Officer) and Eli(Principal Engineer) spoke to multiple people who suggested they look into Node-RED, especially since they built an IoT database. The guys came back home, did some quick research, thought“this looks pretty cool,” then threw it on the backlog…where it sat for a while. Whoops. In the last few months we finally got around to diving into Node-RED and, wow, is it powerful!
When first learning about HarperDB, a lot of folks ask about our Open Source Strategy. Given one of our core-values is transparency, I thought it important to publish our strategy publicly.
I am a former Red Hatter and a passionate believer that Open Source is good for the world. When forming HarperDB, we did some really deep thinking about Open Source. We consulted former colleagues at Red Hat, had intense conversations with developers, and looked pretty extensively at the market.
Zachary and I had the pleasure of attending #CES2019 in Las Vegas. We saw a lot of really incredible things from Flying Vehicles, to Haptic VR suits combined with human gerbil like balls, and every imaginable type of AI, 3D printer, image recognition software, and smart home device - like a cocktail maker and smart diaper.
Happy New Year! With 2019 full of possibilities ahead, we wanted to share our thoughts on where we see Technology moving in the upcoming year.
The edge has been limited in functionality and performance mainly due to limited resources on each device. Sure, most devices are significantly more powerful than the machines that got us to the moon, but modern applications have also become exponentially more resource intensive.
