In this three-part introductory series on Bluemix and DevOps Services, Lauren Schaefer, Growth Hacking Engineer and Social Media Lead for IBM DevOps Services, guides you through discovery showing how using these products can prevent you from wasting time! Using the simple app created in Part 1 and the app that uses a Bluemix service deployed in Part 2, learn how to write code that uses the new Bluemix service. Try out the web IDE (no setup required) and learn how to use agile planning tools. End up with an application that checks the prices of items in online stores for you, so you don’t have to surf the web to see if your favorite items are on sale!
