ql.io: Putting Node.js to Work for Mobile

A session at Strange Loop 2012

Tuesday 25th September, 2012

2:00pm to 2:50pm (CST)

ql.io makes it easy to build HTTP gateways to reduce network hops, cut bandwidth usages, and improve overall latency and availability for apps that are far away from data centers – such as mobile apps. At eBay we have been implementing and serving several end-user facing use cases through ql.io. These apps use ql.io’s SQL and JSON flavored scripting language to describe data access from HTTP APIs.

While building a functionally rich and scalable HTTP gateway on node.js to meet our performance and scalability goals itself was a challenging task, building ql.io also involved making node.js operationally ready to meet eBay’s availability standards.

In this talk, I will introduce the key concepts behind built ql.io, how we’re putting ql.io and node.js to action, what it took us to make node.js operationally ready, and the lessons we learned in this process.
