BM Codename: BlueMix - Workshop, 4 June

BM Codename: BlueMix - Workshop, 4 June

Join us to learn all about IBM's new cloud development platform, Codename: BlueMix.

BlueMix is a Platform as a Service (PaaS) designed for developers to create an "integrated developer experience" -- basically, to help them build their cloud apps faster and better, while simplifying the operation and management of the underlying infrastructure supporting their app. In layman's terms, it could be described as "Lego for Cloud". So while that may not be the corporate marketing statement, it probably sums it up nicely: everything plugs together seamlessly regardless of where it comes from (either IBM or 3rd party), as long as it runs on SoftLayer.

IBM invites you to take the opportunity to learn how to build and deploy applications and services like DevOps and data in a matter of hours on BlueMix.

This workshop provides born-on the cloud entrepreneurs, mobile developers, start-ups and anyone working in DevOps the opportunity to:
Learn the fundamentals of building and deploying your application in the Cloud (BlueMix DevOps Services)
Work with BlueMix experts on how to use the product and migrate your application
Help shape BlueMix with your input and feedback
Data Management Services hands-on lab
Bring your own simple application or use our sample labs and learn how to build and deploy on BlueMix. BlueMix is an open-standards, cloud-based platform for building, managing and running apps of all types (web, mobile,
big data, new smart devices). Capabilities include Java, mobile back-end development, application monitoring, as well as capabilities from ecosystem and open source partners— all through an as-a-service model in the cloud.
BlueMix gives you the opportunity to deploy your application and have it running in just a matter of hours.

Date: Wednesday, 4 June 2014
Time: 5:30pm – 8:00pm (beer & pizza supplied!)
