Today’s developer ecosystem is one defined by the cloud. APIs, web services, GitHub, EngineYard, Heroku, PaaS, IaaS, Ruby, Python, PHP and more, are all part of today’s developer conversation; words unheard of just a few years ago.

I have a few applications on my mobile platforms that rely on integrated (more...)
