  • Translate your Bluemix application to access global markets
    IBM Globalization is an experimental service for Bluemix that uses machine translation combined with easy-to-use RESTful APIs, a service dashboard, and sample SDKs. IBM Globalization enables you to rapidly translate your apps, make edits to translations for style and quality, and deploy the translation in real time — all without breaking DevOps. Using the IBM Globalization service, you can translate, build, and deploy at the frequency that your customers require.
  • Migrate an app from Heroku to Bluemix
    This tutorial analyzes the key differences between Heroku and Bluemix from a developer’s point of view, and shows you how to address these differences when migrating a Heroku application to IBM Bluemix, using a Node.js application as an example.
  • Use Maven with the Bluemix DevOps Services delivery pipeline
    Apache Maven is a powerful build tool for Java-based projects. Maven automatically resolves dependencies on components or plug-ins required for the build process by downloading them from a Maven repository. This tutorial and video show how to use the Bluemix DevOps Services delivery pipeline in conjunction with Maven. Starting with a simple Java application and an associated unit test, you’ll configure a build stage in the delivery pipeline to use Maven for building and testing. Then you’ll add a second stage that pushes the application to the cloud.

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.
