you want to run it in the cloud?

Hello, and welcome to my first blog entry in this blog. Let me tell you a little bit about myself and what I will be covering in the upcoming blogs.
I have worked at IBM since 1997, starting in the Hursley Software Lab working as part of the Emerging Technologies team, then moved in to the IBM Innovation Centre (IIC). I've had the chance to use some interesting technology whist at IBM and the latest area I have worked in is Cloud Computing. I created the Cloud Computing mission in the IIC almost 3 years ago, and last year moved to the World Wide team where I am responsible for technical enablement work for Cloud Computing within the ISV & Developer Relations organisation.
Shortly after joining the World Wide team I got the mission of enabling some of our 40+ Innovation Centres on PureSystems, so we could work with ISVs to get their solutions enabled on IBM's newest family of systems - PureSystems. This covered both the PureFlex system and also PureApplication System. If you're not familiar with PureSystems please take a look here.
Part of my role is travelling to IICs, working with ISVs and helping IIC technical staff enable ISV solutions to IBM cloud technology. In future posts I will share some of the tricks, tips, best practices that have come from the work I have done with ISVs.
So you all know - I do work for IBM, but the views and comments I make in this blog are my own and do not necessarily reflect the views or policies of IBM.
You may have noticed that this blog has not exactly been a hive of activity, with this being the second post! However, I've started blogging on our Ecosystem Development technical Bluemix blog : https://www.ibm.com/developerworks/community/blogs/enablingwithbluemix
So far I have created 2 entries:
but while you're there check out the other great blog posts by my colleagues.
I've also started to tweet regularly - but don't worry I'll not flood you with marketing messages, I prefer to stay technical

I've just posted another blog post to try to help people understand the various options for specifying a start command when deploying Node.js application on IBM #Bluemix : https://ibm.biz/BdFZzj
I would also like to recommend a webcast replay where Ryan Baxter (@ryanjbaxter) talks about Building Highly Scalable Application on Bluemix. This is an excellent presentation and introduction to mico-service architectures and how to use micro-services to deliver a highly scalable cloud application.
