Bungee offers hosted software development

Developers can build, host apps using the Bungee Connect on-demand 'platform-as-a-service' system

Boasting of a one-of-a-kind solution for the application development lifecycle, Bungee Labs is launching the public beta of Bungee Connect, an on-demand platform for Web application development and deployment.

Featured is a full gamut of tools and services to build and host applications. "Bungee Connect is a single platform for the development, testing, deployment, and hosting of rich Web applications," said Lyle Ball, Bungee Labs' vice president of marketing.

With the platform, developers can collaborate to build Web applications leveraging multiple Web services and databases. Applications are deployed on Bungee Labs' multi-tenant grid infrastructure and can be SaaS-based or offered as stand-alone Web destinations. They are accessed via popular browsers.

Rather than developers having to assemble disparate pieces such as IDE, an AJAX (Asynchronous JavaScript and XML) toolkit, and testing and collaboration tools, Bungee provides all these capabilities.

"Developers log onto Bungee Connect. It's in the cloud and it's a hosted environment," Ball said.

Bungee describes its product as a platform-as-a-service system, in which the entire software development lifecycle can be supported on the same computing environment to reduce costs, risks, and time to market.

Because Bungee Connect is entirely based on-demand, users can build and deploy applications without installing or configuring servers and can connect to multiple Web services from within a single environment, said Brad Hintze, Bungee director of product marketing.

"I think it's got some very interesting benefits because it's managing to integrate development and deployment but in a service environment, so it allows for a developer to [have] access to tools," said Dana Gardner, principal analyst at Interarbor Solutions. "It also at the same time gives them a place to deploy their applications without having to worry," about run-time choices and operational issues," he said.

HP OfficeJet Pro 8730

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.
