We're excited to congratulate the LoopBack team for earning the 2019 API Award for the "Best in API Middleware" category. LoopBack is a highly extensible, open source Node.js framework based on Express that enables you to quickly create dynamic end-to-end REST APIs and connect to backend systems such as databases and SOAP or REST services.

The 2019 API Awards celebrate the technical innovation, adoption, and reception in the API & Microservices industries and use by a global developer community. The 2019 API Awards will be presented at the 2019 API Awards Ceremony during the first day of API World 2019 (Oct 8-10, 2019, San Jose Convention Center), the world’s largest API & Microservices conference & expo -- the largest event for the API economy -- in its 8th year, with over 3,500 attendees.

We've provided news, tutorials, and updates on LoopBack for almost as long as the StrongLoop site existed, and continued to do so after IBM acquired StrongLoop in 2015. Recently, IBM created another resource for LoopBack! In addition to accessing news of the open-source Node.js API Framework on this site, you can now also find news, code and more on the official IBM Developer LoopBack page.
