New multi-language support


hook.io is a 100% open-source platform for Microservices.

For the past year we have been working on making our JavaScript support full-featured.

While we love still love JavaScript, hook.io has now added support for ten programming languages outside of JavaScript.

Newly Added Languages

  • Bash
  • Coffee-Script
  • Lua
  • PHP
  • Python
  • Perl
  • Ruby
  • Scheme
  • SmallTalk
  • Tcl

To try this new functionality visit our Interactive Microservice Tutorial or simply select a new language when creating or editing a Hook service on hook.io

More blog posts will follow detailing the usage of each individual language.

Seeking Developer Community Managers

We are now seeking individual Developer Community Managers to help make the support for each new language full-featured.

Our idea is to have at least one domain expert contributing to hook.io for every language we support.

Why become a Developer Community Manager?

  • Get directly involved working with Microservices and the hook.io open-source project
  • See your favorite language have first-class support on hook.io
  • Add an impressive notch to your resume
  • Get free hosting from hook.io for all your Microservices
  • Be first in line for a paid position ( We love to hire contributors! )
  • The satisfaction of working on a good open-source project

Responsibilities

Since the launch of our platform, the JavaScript language has been the primary target for Microservice features ( such as streaming http / logging / datastore / npm modules )

It's imperative that every new language we add can offer the same feature-set, level of functionality, and experience of our JavaScript support.

Your primary responsibility as a Developer Community Manager will be working with the hook.io platform and user-base to ensure that your language has first-class support on hook.io

Compensation

Developer Community Managers are currently a volunteer based position. The amount of work you do depends on how well you wish to see your target language implemented.

A featured section will be created on the hook.io website for all Developer Community Managers to optionally list their profile / website.

hook.io is currently raising a seed investment. Once we have raised seed funding, paid positions will be available.

We love to hire contributors!

How to Apply

We currently have several open issues on Github discussing which languages to add and how to implement them into the stack.

We also have an irc room #hook.io on irc.freenode.net

If you are interested in becoming a Developer Community Manager for a specific language, please feel free to open up a Github Issue or start a conversation in our irc channel.


We look forward to hearing from you soon!
