I want to share with you an idea about Internet of Things together with Bluemix. Wearables, especially smartwatches, are becoming more and more visible on the market. I started thinking what I could do with it. What could be the real life use-case? I want to have something that is more connected with its human carrier. So I connected this Bluemix IoT app with my Android Watch to access the data from them online in almost realtime.
Did you know that women in STEM jobs earned 33% more than comparable women in non-STEM jobs? Or that women represent 48% of the workforce but hold 24% of jobs in the STEM field? Women In Technology International (WITI) and IBM are both committed to helping women become a greater part of the success and growth of our industry. With that, IBM and WITI are partnering together for the first ever WITI Virtual Hackathon!
This weekly post showcases some of best new tutorials, videos, and other content published each week on developerWorks. The three featured articles include: Adding language translation to your apps with IBM Watson, enabling social network logins using the Bluemix Single Sign On service, and a two-part tutorial showing how you can leverage MongoDB to build powerful, scalable MongoDB-powered cloud applications.
Are you able to deliver the value from your data that your business expects? Today, there is a growing information bottleneck in IT, as organizations want more speed, flexibility and ease of use, while at the same time data is growing and straining legacy solutions. For database administrators, developers and data scientists alike, these challenges are highly visible – but the threat to ease of use, speed and self-service extends to end users, as well. This Thursday, 451 Research analyst Jason Stamper is joining Larry Weber of IBM Cloud Data Services in a live webcast, to take a deeper look at the challenges facing data storage and analytics today. They will also explore the emerging solutions that can tackle those challenges – including those that leverage cloud computing’s scale, elasticity and agility to amplify the power of traditional data warehousing.

This tutorial will serve to build a wireless communication for remote control to turn on/off a device for example, or have a sensor instead of the button to signal that every time a mail comes in to your mailbox you'll know it. When the button is pressed on in Part 1, the LED will turn on and a signal will be sent to from Xbee1 to Xbee2; in Part 2, the buzzer will make a sound. In the same time, that signal will be read by the Ethernet Arduino and it will be sent to Bluemix's MongoDB through MQTT communication. Node-RED will handle the reading of the Ethernet Arduino and sending it to MongoDB.
Thank you all who attended our webinar on Navigating the API Economy with IBM Bluemix. Matt Roberts took us through the big picture concepts of creating an API value chain and then dove into a live demo for making this real. The importance of API economy cannot be overstated in this cloud enabled application world.
This post describes details on the Bluemix and FIU Hackthon and provides pointers to the amazing work the students have accomplished and the lessons we learned from it. Unlike typical Hackathons that usually takes place in a day or two, we extended this one for a few weeks so students really get the time to experiment on the cloud platform, learn the technologies available to them and build interesting applications. The projects ranged from interesting job search applications to home automation to analyzing mood of people in Miami. Check out the projects including video overviews!
With less than 10 days away, IBM Bluemix is gearing up for the 2015 Twilio Signal conference in San Francisco. Twilio is an IBM Bluemix service provider used to build apps that communicate, integrating voice, messaging, and VoIP into web and mobile apps. Register now to hear from Twilio and other industry thought leaders and while experiencing a number of captivating events. To make the most of your time, we’ve outlined key activities that you should explore.
In the dynamic and ever-changing realm of mobile, context is critical to the success of your applications. Users may be at home sitting on the couch, or they could be on top of a mountain with very limited connectivity. There’s no way to predict where someone will be when they’re using your app, and as many of us painfully know already, there is never a case when you are always online on your mobile devices. Well, this doesn’t always have to be a problem. Regardless of whether your app is online or offline, it is important that your app does what it needs to do – solve a problem and provide value. This three-part tutorial will walk through the creation of a sample application called GeoPix, which leverages IBM MobileFirst on IBM Bluemix to capture data and image attachments locally (even offline) and replicate those changes to an online data store so that the user experience is never compromised.
