‘Why Bluemix?’ Explained in 10 Minutes

Share this post:

As a developer advocate for Bluemix, I regularly talk with other developers about the capabilities and benefits of IBM Bluemix. In these conversations, I often use a pitch similar to the one in this video.

I start explaining what Bluemix is in general with a quick introduction of the Bluemix web user interface. Next I cover the different options how to package applications, especially via Cloud Foundry and Docker, followed by a short summary of the different deployment options and DevOps capabilities. After this I talk about my favorite Bluemix functionality – the great services – and then about some sample applications using these services. The last part of the video describes the different Bluemix offerings and explains how developers can get started.
