Recently IBM has released a Beta of Kubernetes support in the IBM Bluemix Container Service. The IBM Bluemix Container Service, now combines Docker and Kubernetes to deliver powerful tools, an intuitive user experience, and built-in security and isolation to enable rapid delivery of applications all while leveraging Cloud Services including cognitive capabilities from Watson.
We just introduced The Bluemix Developer Console. Extending the current Bluemix Mobile Dashboard, this new experience goes beyond mobile and introduces new tools for quickly creating Cloud Native applications across web, mobile and backend. They aim to greatly cut down on development time by generating application starters with all the necessary boilerplate, build and configuration code, so that developers can start coding business logic faster.
For many developers, the Hello World starter applications on Bluemix are too basic and the sample applications on IBM-Bluemix.github.io page are a bit too advanced. If you agree with this, you'll find our recently released Runtime Getting Started guides extremely helpful.
