- Are you a cloud native developer who would like to give programming with IBM Cloud Object Storage a try?
- Would you like to learn more about some of the IBM Cloud services (such as IBM Watson, Cloudant, etc.)?
- Are you looking for practical examples on programming with IBM Cloud?
- Would you like to learn more about the cloud object storage technology and its capabilities?
- Are you new to cloud programming and would like to learn more about it?
If you have answered "Yes" to any of these questions, you should check out the recently published How to Use IBM Cloud Object Storage When Building and Operating Cloud Native Applications IBM Redpaper
This book presents a series of tutorials for cloud native developers just getting started with IBM Cloud and IBM Cloud Object Storage. Within the context of a car insurance application, it presents an introductory series of linked modules that allow developers unfamiliar with either IBM Cloud or cloud native development to get started with application development using IBM starter kits. This allows you to become familiar with the types of services available on IBM Cloud, and to develop a sense of which patterns and choices are appropriate for different use cases.
Some of the technologies and products covered in this book are Cloudant, Watson Analytics, machine learning, elastic search, Kubernetes, containers, pre-signed URLs, Aspera®, and SQL Query. In addition to the technical integration steps, the book also presents a business case for integrating these technologies and products with IBM Cloud Object Storage.
The following is the table of contents:
Chapter 1. IBM Cloud Object Storage primer
Chapter 2. IBM Cloud primer
Chapter 3. Application design and architecture
Chapter 4. Scaffolding using a Starter Kit
Chapter 5. Storing metadata in Cloudant
Chapter 6. Using IBM Cloud Object Storage
Chapter 7. Advanced Object Storage integration patterns
Chapter 8. Discover insights using Watson Services
Chapter 9. Performing more advanced functions with machine learning
Chapter 10. Adding geographic and weather data
Chapter 11. Managing the application's users
Chapter 12. Providing case search
Chapter 13. Running your web application in the Cloud
