The number of Internet connected devices is growing dramatically, it is expected to increase from 15 billon devices in 2015 to 40 billion devices in 2020. These devices make up something called the Internet of Things. These devices can be controlled remotely and interconnected.
While a lot of these devices can be connected to the Internet, most of them are “dumb” devices right now. To turn these “dumb” devices into smart devices you can use the Internet of Things to connect them to the cloud.
The State of the Union, a live broadcast that many Americans historically use as a tool to form opinions about the current political system, and gain insight from their Commander in Chief into the transparency of a system of checks and balances. What is more interesting is the thoughts and underlying feelings between the State of the Union. If we could figure out how the President is feeling or portraying himself, could we infer how the President will schedule and work with legislation and policy for the rest of the year?
Etherpad Lite is an awesome online collaboration platform. Multiple open source projects use it for collaboration. One of the most notable ones is the Openstack Project Openstack Etherpad. To help you navigate the setup, this post provides step-by-step instructions to get things running. You may have read that Etherpad is complicated to install in a PaaS and there really isn’t a comprehensive quick start guide for running Etherpad-lite in Cloud Foundry.
We are back at it again with some demos!!!
Did you ever wonder if you and your favorite celebrity would be compatible if you met?? I sure do! Or did you ever wonder how you could become a better leader, I sure do. Today you would have to go Google the person and analyze posts and articles about them and be a personality expert to see if you have personality traits in common.
Backed by popular demand this is a continuation of the post Building a Java EE app on IBM Bluemix Using Watson and Cloudant.
This post will detail how to build and deploy the app using IBM DevOps Services.
There is a bit of magic behind this, its called “The Deploy to Bluemix Button”…
Clicking the magic button below will setup the app using IBM DevOps services and deploy the whole application for you.
While IBM is rapidly bringing new services and capabilities into Bluemix, one of the reasons our customers are so interested in Bluemix is because they can use our platform and services in conjunction with many other open source and third party APIs and services. The ability to easily access and integrate this combination of technology is one of the biggest values for any developer looking to build applications on Bluemix.
Jeff here again and something I am really excited about is Watson is now available for anyone to use in Bluemix!
Today we are going to be building an example app using Java, Cloudant, and Watson.
Ok let’s talk through what this app is going to do before we build it.
Meet Ivy (hello!)
She’s a talent manager at a growing tech startup.
She’s looking for a new hire that would be a good fit on her team but the company is so popular that she has a huge inventory of resumes to sort through.
In Cloud Foundry (the open source technology behind Bluemix), when you do a cf push, Cloud Foundry will actually stop your app and restart it with the new code that you just uploaded. This presents an issue for a production app or any app that is actually serving users. There is a shortcoming with the current DEA (the part in Cloud Foundry that runs your app) but the next version of the DEA (Diego) will help address this.
Did you know in Bluemix you get inbound SSL for free? It is automatically turned on and enabled for every app. All you have to do is just access your app over https instead of http.
Developers don’t need to implement SSL in their app, you just need to support HTTP and the Bluemix infrastructure will support HTTPS for you and do SSL offloading.
Additionally Bluemix supports the x-forwarded-proto header to allow developers to check with protocol requests are coming in over.
