LightWave and API Strategy on-demand webinar

April 2021 (Great Neck, NY)

If you had attended our TIC User Forum couple months ago and the webinar we hosted in April, you would have enjoyed some very interesting NonStop User presentations, including the “API Strategy using LightWave” by our client US Foods. Ajay and Ken did an excellent job in presenting their approach and experience in implementing enterprise interoperability utilizing RESTful API.

We have requests from a few users expressing interest to learn more about the LightWave product. So, we want to follow up with this on-demand webinar to do a deeper dive on the LightWave Server and Client to explore:

  • What are the LightWave architecture and components?

  • How does the LightWave achieve its high performance?

  • How easy is it to develop applications using LightWave?
