On June 1st I was in Salt Lake City, UT at UtahJS, presenting a session on building next generation web querying systems with ql.io and Node.js. As a web querying system built on Node.js foundations, the system is meant to make the consuming and mashing of APIs and data sources (both internal and external) incredibly easy. I have found this to be very true myself, where I have used it to dynamically pull in all of my evangelism data from different data sources to construct my personal website.
Below are the audio, slides and code (from the live coding pieces of the talk) from that session, where I go through:
Here is the audio from the session:
These are the slides that go along with the audio presentation:
In the first live coding section, I create and call the Slideshare and Github APIs to gather social data. Below is the code from that demo:
In the section live coding section, I go through how to embed the ql.io engine into your Node.js applications and make a request. Below is the code from that demo:
