Video CDN integration using Brightcove Video Cloud

One of the most critical integrations to enable effective management of video is the connection between your CMS and your online video management platform (OVMP) like Brightcove, Vimeo and Youtube. OVMPs were created to ease the effort of video management and distribution. They are usually SaaS-based and provide video file transcoding, device detection, video hosting and CDN service for distribution and syndication, in-depth analytics and player customizations.

To ease the burden of managing video assets within BloomReach, an integration plugin is available that allows a content author to browse and search Brightcove with an extension of the native BloomReach file picker. By taking advantage of BloomReach's flexibilty, we can provide a seamless integration with Brightcove such that videos can remain in Brightcove but still become available to BloomReach without importing the actual video content.

Continuous deployment using Docker and Tutum

Docker is an open-source technology used to package, ship and run an application. Docker has become synonymous with the concept of containers, which are used to create a complete environment for a software application to run, including code, runtime, system tools and libraries. These containers are highly portable and are used to deploy applications across environments. Containers are not new, however Docker has made containers easier and safer to use, standardizing their use and integration with other DevOps technology.

Specifically, Docker makes it possible to set up local development environments that are exactly like a live production server, run multiple development environments from the same host that each have unique software, operating systems, and configurations, test projects on new or different servers, and allow anyone to work on the same project with the exact same settings, regardless of the local host environment.

Apache Cordova for mobile app development

Apache Cordova is a set of device APIs that allow a mobile app developer to access native device function such as the camera or accelerometer from JavaScript. Combined with a UI framework such as jQuery Mobile or Dojo Mobile or Sencha Touch, this allows a smartphone app to be developed with just HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

When using the Cordova APIs, an app can be built without any native code (Java, Objective-C, etc) from the app developer. Instead, web technologies are used, and they are hosted in the app itself locally (generally not on a remote http server).

And because these JavaScript APIs are consistent across multiple device platforms and built on web standards, the app should be portable to other device platforms with minimal to no changes.
