@marckohlbrugge Sorry, I forgot to hit "reply". Hi Marc! Many thanks for reaching out and your interest in Gluu IO.

We introduce a 3-step process, which allows our users to do much more than with other integration services. In the 1st step you select the data source and in the 3rd step you pick where you want to send that data - standard stuff. The second, middle step allows you to enrich or analyse that data. You can e.g. send email addresses from Mailchimp to Google spreadsheet or a CRM system and on the way there they will be complemented with the email owners' social profiles (thanks to a third-party APIs we integrated). Same with images in Dropbox folder: you can send the images to Google drive and auto-crop them on the way there to fit perfectly into Twitter posts - thanks to an auto-cropping API.

These third-party APIs in the middle were for programmers only. Gluu IO makes them accessible without coding.

Thousands of other automations are possible. If you have one in mind, please send it our way!
@elamustrun Awesome. I know Zapier added support for multiple actions per workflow too, but to modifying data is still quite cumbersome and requires some scripting.

Do you see yourself as a competitor to services like Zapier? I imagine they are working on similar features as well.
@marckohlbrugge We see ourselves primarily as Mashape marketplace for non-programmers.

Zapier and IFTTT showed us all that complex things can be done much easier than before (essentially by clicking instead of coding). With Gluu IO we push that trend forward and allow everyone who can set up a Zap or IFTTT Recipe to do almost anything programmers do nowadays. That is our mission and the main differentiator from both of these great companies!
@elamustrun Awesome! That vision reminds me of something @ivanpashenko is working on. Too bad @mentions don't work in these comments yet. Will send him a tweet to see if he's interested in sharing his perspective.

@marckohlbrugge Thanks Marc! That would be awesome!

@elamustrun I am here to help people (& businesses) who already have the need to send money abroad
How did you guys come up with this idea?
@elamustrun we just scrolled down to the 2350 year in the iPhone's calendar app. 💡"Wait a minute. Every human and animal gonna die at this moment" — we thought
It seems difficult to design tests that accurately predict future job performance so I'm curious what's your approach to this and how you ensure that you are testing for the skills that are actually required in day-to-day work. Thanks!

Hello Ela,

Thank you for your comment.

I agree that designing the tests will not be an easy task. The tests were initially going to be developed by senior professionals who are currently working in their fields and who possess such skills. However, vetting these professionals, and ensuring these tests remains accurate is also a challenge.

I appreciate your concern, and we welcome any feedback you may have.

Best,
Jonathan
