Ralph Schoon (Unleash The Labs, Leading Technical Sales Professional ) provides two great no-nonsense views into starting up with projects in IBM BlueMix on his external blog rsja
Getting started with BlueMix - Ralph blogs about his experiences with BlueMix and provides some detailed information to help you get started as well: "Recently everyone has their heads in the clouds and I decided to have a peek to find out what it is all about. So I started looking into it. This post is a summary of my first experiences with the IBM BlueMix Cloud Computing offering and how I got started with developing my first applications for it..."
Using RTC to Work with DevOps Services and With Bluemix - Ralph blogs again with a deeper dive into BlueMix and Eclipse that builds upon the post above: "I recently had a look into Bluemix and how to use it with Eclipse to develop cloud applications. The blog post also mentions that there is an integration to DevOps Services that enables to use work items for planning. It also allows to use GIT or Jazz SCM to manage the source code. Recently I had a look into how that works and I would like to share here what I learned. This post assumes you have performed the first steps to setup your environment following the Getting started With Bluemix post already...."

Introducing Call Home Web Beta - This video introduces you to IBM’s new web interface for viewing Call Home information. With the most recent release of the IBM Support Portal, you are now able to manage systems in a new Call Home Web Dashboard. Features of Call Home Web include automated problem reporting or missed heartbeat events, as well as a graphical interface of problem reports. All systems associated with CHWE show the last heartbeat and can easily scan for issues. You can organize systems associated with your IBM ID, as well as pair new systems to your IBM ID.

Managing your Systems in IBM Call Home Web - This video demonstrates how to add and manage Power systems, PureFlex Systems based on Power architecture, and IBM Storage Systems that provide Call Home capability. This tool does not cover System Z, System X, or BladeCenter Systems. John Goodson, Electronic Support Architect, has created this
Existing systems will already be recognized if you have added to your IBM ID to the system when you configured IBM Call Home in Electronic Service Agent (ESA) or Hardware Management Console (HMC). On this page, you can confirm system registrations for data to start being collected from your systems. You can also perform test events to ensure problem reports are correctly associated.
This video also demonstrates how to put your systems in groups with access management.

In this 3-part series, Steven Wood (IBM Advisory Software Engineer) will show how to build an integration with Evernote. We start with the API and move on to building a standalone Node.js web application that allows users to browse their Evernote data. Then you will see how to adapt this web app into a DOORS Next Generation extension. I hope that this example will give you a taste of what can be achieved with DOORS Next client extensions and a sense of how easy it is to build and deploy your own extensions using Bluemix:
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 2- Rational DOORS Next Generation now lets you create client extensions. Extensions are complete web applications that run inside a dedicated area of the DOORS user interface, allowing users to embed custom web content. IBM Bluemix provides a powerful and easy-to-use platform for hosting web applications and extensions. In this tutorial, the second of three parts, see how to build a web front end using the Express JS framework, and how to allow users to authenticate to Evernote using OAuth instead of using a single developer token.
Integrate Rational DOORS Next Generation and Evernote, Part 3- This tutorial builds on Part 1 and Part 2. So far, we've built a simple web application that allows users to permit access to their Evernote accounts using OAuth and then displays their notebooks, lists notes in a notebook, and reads and displays note content. In this final part, we'll create a DOORS Next Generation Client extension with the application that will allow users to import their Evernote note content into DOORS requirements artifacts.

Over on Jazz.net, the team has been publishing some excellent articles. Here are two recent articles you won't want to miss!
Rational Team Concert and Git Integration: Setup Guide- Starting with 5.0 release, Rational Team Concert comes with built-in support for integrating with Git, with the following salient features. This article touches upon the overall setup required for this integration to work; and, specifically describes the setup on the Git server-side.
How to keep your streams flowing smoothly in Rational Team Concert- This article explores some of the best practices for team-based Release Engineering in a Rational Team Concert environment using Jazz Source Control. In particular, we introduce two new features in RTC 3.0.1 that are designed to aid the Release Engineer in their day-to-day tasks: a new post-build option that automatically delivers changes to a chosen stream, and the ability to use the Pending Changes view to track incoming/outgoing changes from a stream.
