For the past year, we have been evolving our Objective-C SDKs alongside new Swift SDKs. Over the last few months, we have been investing more and more effort in the Swift SDKs, and we want to make sure that our developers are getting the best out of our mobile SDKs. To that effect, we’ve decided […]
You know how when you're building an app, you have a few steps that you always have to do that are just annoying? Get a service, get a key, get an SDK, add some lines of code, rinse and repeat. What if you didn't have to do any of that? With the next generation of Mobile Development on Bluemix, you can skip to the fun part.
Today, we are launching the Mobile category dashboard on Bluemix, and it just got easier than ever to build your next mobile app. We've created the Mobile dashboard, where you can create and manage your mobile projects in Bluemix, and access everything that you need for your application, all in one place.
IBM Bluemix started, the opportunity for mobile developers was an obvious one. It takes only a quick look at your phone to see that almost every app uses a core set of capabilities - Authentication, Push Notifications, Data and Analytics. Consider how many apps there are, and that they are all using this functionality. Should every developer be standing up a server and rewriting this rudimentary software? No, they should be using a service or services. Heck, they probably shouldn’t be writing any server side code at all, right? We learned a lot while we were building these services. As a continuation of that journey, today I’m happy to announce that we are adding Android to our second generation of mobile cloud services.
