Navigation design changes in Bluemix docs help you discover what you need

Share this post:

Have you had trouble in the past finding what you need in the Bluemix docs? We’ve worked hard to improve the discoverability of the content you need. Check out the Bluemix docs new navigation design: https://console.bluemix.net/docs

What did we change?

We’re introducing new navigation groupings: Learn, Reference, How to, and Help. These new navigation groupings help organize information in a more consistent way. The types of information you might find included are:

  • Learn: getting started, about, overview, prerequisites, or best practices
  • Reference: REST API docs, commands, settings, or templates
  • How to: tasks, tutorials, or scenarios
  • Help: troubleshooting content, FAQs, or how to contact support

With this navigation update, we think you’ll be better equipped to understand how content is organized throughout our docs, and you’ll be able to find relevant content more efficiently. With fewer nested layers of content, you won’t have to dig around to find the documentation you need to be successful with Bluemix.

When you click on any of the entries in the navigation, the table of contents includes anchors to enable you to jump to the right spot within the topic.

Tip: Use the breadcrumbs at the top of the content pane to go back to the docs home page or help to identify the sub-collection that you’re in.

IBM Message Hub goes live in Bluemix

I’m very pleased to tell you about the release of the new IBM Message Hub service in IBM Bluemix. After a couple of months as a beta service, it’s now progressed to a fully fledged, generally available service. Message Hub brings the power and scale of Apache Kafka to the IBM Bluemix cloud. As far as we know, this is the first multi-tenant, cloud-hosted service based on Kafka. It makes it very quick and easy to experiment with Kafka and Bluemix, whether you’re writing an application using a runtime environment such as Node.js, a Docker container or a virtual machine, or integrating with other Bluemix services.
