Today’s guest post is from Han Pieter Duyverman, CIO of Finaps, a Mendix implementation partner with a focus on financial services.

Today, we have a guest post from Mohammed Siddiqui, a Mendix developer who joined LV= last year as part of Rod Willmott’s Fast Track innovation team. Mohammed joined LV= after graduating with a Master’s degree from Teesside University, where he wrote his thesis on Mendix. In this post, he shares how he leveraged Mendix’s Enterprise App Store to build and publish a starter-kit module that is shaving additional time off what are already jaw-dropping delivery time-frames, even by Mendix standards!

Welcome to the second part of our REST Services introduction. In my previous post, we discovered how to consume a REST service. This post explains how to create a REST API that publishes a microflow.
The ShellShare app
In this blog post, we will build ShellShare, a small app that helps you to store and share shell commands: those pesky tiny little things you can’t remember because of all the different flags and acronyms, like gzip -c <filename> > outputfile to zip a file without losing the source file. With this app, you no longer need to Google the same command over and over again. You will be able to browse these shell commands by using the web interface, or by using its REST API. So, let’s get started! Continue reading
The four-year World Cup wait is almost over and people all over the globe are eager to hear the first whistle blown in the opening match of Brazil vs Croatia. This tournament attracts an estimated 715 million viewers, and because it only occurs every four years, it’s a hot topic months in advance – particularly within our global team here at Mendix, who are known to build apps for just about anything.
Time flies! Another month, and hence another release. This is what we have in store for you in the Mendix May Release:
Hot Deployment continued
In our April release, we introduced a hot deployment or ‘fast rerun’ feature that can update a running project if only changes to pages, layouts and snippets were made. The next image summarizes the improvement in deployment time for different projects. Continue reading
