Jump-start your hackathon efforts with IBM Bluemix DevOps Services
A hackathon is typically a brief, intense period of collaborative development generally around a particular cause or topic. The idea is to get something done quickly and, of course, for the thing you to do totally rock the judges. Given the short time period, it can be challenging to build in some basic features like Facebook authentication or sending emails or texts while still making significant progress on your main goal. The Hackathon Starter Project by Sahat Yalkabov, et. al., hosted at GitHub, provides a great collection of capabilities to use as the base for your hackathon efforts. IBM Bluemix DevOps Services provides a collaborative on-the-web development environment and continuous delivery pipeline while IBM Bluemix provides the cloud hosting you need to run it, making this a perfect pair for hackathon success. I explain how to stand up your own copy of Hackathon Starter from a fresh version of the source using Bluemix DevOps Services and automatically deploy it after every change to the Bluemix PaaS.

Integrate IBM BPM with IBM Watson, Part 1
This tutorial guides you through the steps to integrate an IBM Business Process Manager (BPM) application with IBM Watson by using the Question and Answer service running on IBM Bluemix. IBM BPM is widely used to automate business processes, and the end users are often knowledge workers who make decisions based on their specialty. IBM Watson has the capability to respond to user queries using natural language that is based on a corpus about any business domain. Watson can support decision making, based on the business corpus. This tutorial uses a sample application that demonstrates how end users of IBM BPM applications can invoke Watson to support a decision-making process.

Centralize logs for IBM Bluemix apps using the ELK Stack
IBM Bluemix, IBM's next-generation cloud platform, enables developers to quickly build, deploy, and manage cloud applications. Due to its cloud nature, Bluemix does not automatically persist application log files. However, it does let developers drain their logs to external log management services. This feature, coupled with the components of the ELK Stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana), not only provide developers a centralized location for persistent logs, but also enables them to run analytics on and visualize the log data. This article is targeted for intermediate developers who are familiar with Bluemix and have a basic familiarity with Linux. It provides a brief background on the ELK Stack and then walks you through the process of installing and configuring the components.
