OData API Challenge

Description

Build a new application that leverages OData API generated using Progress DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline. We encourage you to take advantage of the OData standard in your app with any other challenge in the hackathon.

Business applications need data, but to build them efficiently and get them in the hands of users, developers can’t spend hours custom coding one data connection at a time. They need to integrate applications and data quickly, no matter where that data lives; on-site, in the cloud, or both. DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline is a data access service that simplifies integration by connecting directly to the data. This provides applications the ability to use SQL or OData to perform real-time access to on-premises and cloud data. In this challenge, you are required to use DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline’s OData API in your application and will be judged based on "Best use of OData API", which may include how well you have made use of OData’s Interoperability, advanced query capabilities and other features of OData. Your project will be judged by Progress' Engineers. To get started, all the interested hackathon attendees will be provided provisioned with a DataDirect Hybrid Data Pipeline account.

API without API

API without API is a service that makes it easy for websites to implement applications from partner providers while preserving their custom web page design. Problem: Currently, the amount of time and education it takes to learn and implement an external API or service is just too much. Above that, APIs keep changing very often, and users continually need to watch for and adapt to the latest API versions, otherwise, their websites/tools can break.
