Instant Developer 12.5 has been out a short while, and it’s time to let you know what you’ll find in version 13, which we’ll release in mid-March 2014.
Mobile isn’t finished; we’re only just getting started. According to word on the street, the hype will last another 6-7 years, maybe more. But there’s also something else that’s moving the world of IT. There’s a new topic on the horizon that will involve us all within the next 2-3 years. I’m talking about Platform As A Service, more commonly known as PAAS.
This is where version 13 comes in, and like most major versions, it tackles something new. We want to allow you to acquire virtual servers directly from the In.de IDE and install one or more applications to them immediately. You’ll be able to manage all the servers using a single dashboard, with which you can also check the status of your applications, who and how many people are using them, and you can also acquire new servers if you need them, duplicating the current ones. It takes just a few clicks to add a server or install or update an application, even for multiple servers at the same time.
But we’re not stopping there, because applications made with Instant Developer can make WebAPIs available. Not only will they be able to communicate with each other, but they’ll also be able to provide services when you call them using particular URLs. Consider, for example, the option to upload or update documents on the database with a simple call via URL. Clearly, every operation will be reported with specific events, and the programmer can intervene and decide whether or not to authorize it.
This is just the beginning. Over the next few months we’ll explain in greater detail what we’ve got cooking.
