In a talk last year, I explained the design decisions that led us to rewrite the supporting API layer to our back-end systems in Python using the Flask microframework to create a unified, RESTful API. The new API layer, codenamed Wilson, will be available to our customers in the next few months.

It was a pleasure to present early results from our API improvement project. The conference was a blast, full of great people and interesting talks. I'm already looking forward to PyCon Canada 2013!

Learn why developers are gravitating towards Node and its ability to retain and leverage the skills of JavaScript developers and the ability to deliver projects faster than other languages can.  Brought to you in partnership with IBM.
