Build an App Using HarperDB's New Custom Functions πŸš€

Don't miss this opportunity to see HarperDB 3.1 in action!

Code along with HarperDB's VP of Product, Jaxon Repp, in this livestream to code along and build your own app, while utilizing new (and super exciting) functionality with the HarperDB 3.1 release! Jaxon will build out an API and UI that utilizes HarperDB and our new Custom Functions, which enable developers to code their own custom functions, utilizing core HarperDB methods to define a custom API endpoint, resulting in a simplified tech stack and improved performance. Custom Functions are written in Node.js and the UI will be in React.

Meet Jaxon Repp, VP of Product at HarperDB

Jaxon has 25 years of experience architecting, designing, and developing enterprise software. He has served as founder of three technology startups, run Technology, Product, and Solution Architecture at several others, and consulted with multiple Fortune 500 companies on IoT and Digital Transformation initiatives. A partially-reformed developer, he understands what it’s like to wrestle with technology instead of benefiting from it, and believes passionately that if the Jetsons never had an episode where a config file error brought down the food-o-matic, it surely should not be a problem now.
