Toolchains come with out-of-the-box support for a number of common third-party tools like GitHub and Slack. They also support more specialized Bluemix tools, like the Delivery Pipeline, that help deploy your applications. In this post, I'll explain how to integrate a new tool with no coding or special hosting.
A highly-available messaging and integration environment is essential for many of today’s business transactions. Therefore, companies want not only to empower their messaging and integration environments, but want to achieve the highest reliability and scalability at a fraction of the cost and administration. Enter IBM PureApplication, which can be deployed in your private cloud as a pre-built/pre-integrated system, in your private cloud as software on your own infrastructure, or entirely in the cloud.
You know how when you're building an app, you have a few steps that you always have to do that are just annoying? Get a service, get a key, get an SDK, add some lines of code, rinse and repeat. What if you didn't have to do any of that? With the next generation of Mobile Development on Bluemix, you can skip to the fun part.
About one year ago, IBM launched the IBM Bluemix Garage Method website. Have you noticed the many changes in design, content, and function since then? If so, you might wonder how the development team builds the IBM Garage Method website, keeping up with all this churn. As a team member, let me give an overview.
Mobile Foundation just introduced a new cloud-friendly pricing model. It gives enterprises greater flexibility in how they deploy from development, user acceptance testing, pre-production and production—all on the cloud at a low price, but with great scale.
Experienced mobile developers can use Code Starters to integrate common mobile services and key Bluemix services like Watson, Weather, IoT, and Cloudant, with a production-ready starting point. These Code Starters massively reduce the time it takes to get your mobile app running with Bluemix.
These days, everything is code. Architecture and design documents can be expressed in code. You set up your systems with configuration management software, right? Infrastructure is code. A typo could be an immediate tenfold cost increase. Code review doesn’t just help build knowledge of application code anymore. It forces us to write down our discussions and make them searchable.
This blog post describes how you can add Watson's cognitive service to an Android app in about 10 minutes.
Developers targeting the Apple platforms have taken to Swift with impressive speed, and with Apple's drive to open source the Swift tool chain and libraries, Swift is starting to take hold outside Apple's platforms, too – and IBM is right there in the mix. SwiftCloudant, which is our official Swift client library now available as early release, creates an asynchronous, operations-based API for Cloudant that feels "Swifty".
In Part 1 of this series, Deliver better software faster with Behavior Driven Development, I explained the benefits of adopting Behavior Driven Development (BDD) and the cultural shift it requires. In this second part, I’ll share a concrete example using Bluemix and Hiptest.
