Google has released App Engine 1.8.5. DISH selects home automation provider Control4 as an early integration partner. Plus, In-Q-Tel partners with Socrata.
Google App Engine 1.8.5 upgraded the Search API and improved PHP runtime. Google plans to participate at Zendcom (PHP developer conference) and will share its PHP improvements. The Search API allows developers to query and index millions of documents.
In July of this year, DISH announced that it would open Hopper’s API to select companies. Home automation provider, Control4, has been selected as one of those companies. DISH will integrate Control4’s Simple Device Discovery Protocol (SDDP) with the Hopper.
DISH’s SVP of Product Management, Vivek Khemka, commented:
“Working with a home automation leader like Control4 is only the first step, and it’s also the direct result of our decision announced in July to open the Hopper platform and its capabilities to more companies. Our decision to work with industry leaders in the home automation industry ensures that automation systems have the ability to control the Hopper over an Internet Protocol network.”
