Thanks to Paul Bastide and the IBM Collaboration Solutions app dev team there is a new version of the IBM Collaboration QuickStart image available in the IBM SmartCloud.
The image can be used by developers to quickly build social apps. It comes with the following pre-installed and pre-configured products and some test user accounts: - IBM Connections 4.0 CR2 - IBM Domino 8.5.3 FP3 - IBM Sametime community server 8.5.2 IFR1 - IBM Sametime Proxy Server 8.5.2 IFR1
Watch this movie (13 mins) to see how to set up your own development environment in less than one hour.
In the video I used the default configuration with 8 GB Ram which costs $0.48 per hour. You can find out more about costs using the estimator.
