    • See IBM Bluemix in action: David Barnes demos Bluemix at NYTECH
      In this demo David Barnes, Program Director of IBM Emerging Technology, demonstrates how you can choose a runtime or framework, such as Node.js or PHP, then select one or more services, such as a Watson or mobile service, and link them with your app. He illustrates this by deploying a chat app on Bluemix, then linking it with the Bluemix Internet of Things service to power a Sphero.

  • Build a remote-controlled Raspberry Pi 2 monitor for your IBM Bluemix apps
    Demystify the Internet of Things with a hands-on project that uses the IBM Internet of Things Foundation to interconnect your devices and apps. Set up a Raspberry Pi 2 to monitor uptime and access time for a running IBM Bluemix app, capturing the results in a graphing app that you can deploy to Bluemix. And code a desktop application that controls the Raspberry Pi 2 monitor remotely.

Check out the Bluemix page on developerWorks for more great how-to and introductory content on Bluemix, including quick-starts, a list of tutorials available for each Bluemix service, and more.
