For the “Functional Web” column in the Jan/Feb 2012 issue of Internet Computing, I wrote about Wriaki, an Erlang sample application my Basho colleague Bryan Fink wrote that implements a wiki on top of Webmachine and Riak. Wriaki is a nice, clean, and easy to understand example of how to write Webmachine applications. Here’s the PDF.
As always, all feedback on this or any other “Functional Web” column is welcomed.
A number of folks planning to submit to our call for papers for “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications” requested an extension on the submission deadline, so we’ve decided to do just that, extending the deadline by a week from Nov. 1 to Nov. 8. We’re already expecting a pretty good number of submissions, and hopefully the extra week will allow for more submissions and submissions of extra high quality. If you have any questions, don’t hesitate to contact us.
Tomas Vitvar, Cesare Pautasso, and I are co-editing an IEEE Internet Computing special issue on “Programmatic Interfaces for Web Applications.” See the full call for papers for details, but if you’re working on or have developed an app-to-app interface for your web application that you think is exemplary, please consider submitting an article about it. Submissions are due Nov. 1, but by Oct. 15 please email us a brief description of what you plan to submit.
