Share this post:

best of bluemix This weekly post showcases some of the best new tutorials, videos, and other content published each week on developerWorks. With DockerCon 2015 on our minds, this week’s post features some of developerWorks best posts on containers.

  • Use notebooks in the cloud for great data science
    Learn how to deploy an IPython Notebook server to  SoftLayer and run the IPython Notebook server in a container.
  • Build and use Docker on the IBM POWER Linux platform
    Find out how to use Docker on the POWER Linux platform and how to compile Docker binaries using gccgo as the compiler back end. You’ll also learn how to build a Docker private registry to host private Docker images.
  • Develop a predictive analytics model for a complex data set
    The IBM Bluemix dashDB service includes its own analytics serives, such as RStudio and the Shiny web application framework, which will come in very handy when solving a Kaggle data mining challenge. If you aren’t familiar, Kaggle is a community for data scientists, where they collaborate to solve complex data science problems.

Read about all the latest topics and news on this week’s DockerCon here. Also, 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.
