A sneak peek of Global Summit 2018

Hi everyone,


are you curious which topics we are going to cover at this year’s Global Summit? You have come to the right place! I will provide you with a sneak peek of what you can expect from the areas I am responsible for.


Many of you are building REST interfaces on a daily basis. Since the last Global Summit, a lot has happened and we are going to show you the latest improvements in our REST tooling to make your life easier. We will cover topics like automated documentation and how we integrate with the Swagger ecosystem. Additionally, we will have a big surprise completely changing how you think about building modern APIs!


Taking a look at the interoperability landscape we will discuss how you can connect systems faster and provide value to your customers in less time. We will provide you with an overview of how we optimized our toolchain and give you an outlook on how you will build interfaces in the future.


Another big topic I discussed with many of you over the last couple of months is the benefit of a microservice architecture. Microservices is a topic you can read a lot about, but it is hard to grasp the benefits and translate them to your environment. What does it really mean to orchestrate multiple services, load balance them, achieve a resilient infrastructure and be able to continuously rollout new updates without downtime? We got you covered. We have prepared a complete experience lab for you to discover the benefits of microservices and to start a conversation about what value it can bring to your environment. Nothing is required except your laptop, but be fast, seating is limited!


You will find plenty of opportunities to hear about updates for our client languages and how you can efficiently communicate with InterSystems IRIS from your favorite language.


This is just the tip of the iceberg of what you can expect from Global Summit this year. Don’t miss the chance to save $600 with the super early bird discount which expires on Friday, August 10th



For those interested in exploring and using MicroServices with all versions of Cache today, QEWD.js has provided a very cool set of Open Source solutions and advanced functionality for a year now.

The full detail is described in the following parts of the Online QEWD.js Course:




And QEWD.js is an ideal and very powerful, modern Open Source REST platform for Cache.  See:


 And all for free :-)

As QEWD makes use of the InterSystems Node.js connector which is available for both Cache and IRIS, the answer is yes. 

If you can provide me access to an IRIS system on GCP Cloud, then sure.

What functionality would you like to see, and what would the target audience be?

Note: I'm not around to do anything until early September


If you can provide me access to an IRIS system on GCP Cloud, then sure.

You can provide the access to IRIS on GCP by yourself - it's open for everyone, as listed in the announcement.

What functionality would you like to see, and what would the target audience be?

This is simple. I wonder, what are the benefits of QEWD for developers on IRIS.

Note: I'm not around to do anything until early September

No rush here.

Can you provide me with an IRIS license and cover the cost of the GCP Cloud Hosting for the purpose of a demo?
