Release Your Inner Developer Advocate!
Fri, Feb 27th 2015 2:52p   Ryan- Baxter
This year at IBM Interconnect I did my first Ignite talk.  If you are not familiar with what an Ignite talk is, check out this video on how to give one. The basic idea is that you have 5 minutes and 20 slides to talk about your topic.  The slides advance every 15 seconds, so that makes things a little more interesting but helps you stay on point My Ignite talk was titled “Release Your Inner Developer Advocate” and focused on why every developer should be a developer advocate.

Bluemix Is Evolving…In A Good Way
Mon, Feb 23rd 2015 1:53p   Ryan- Baxter
A year ago when Bluemix was first released in beta it was marketed as a word class enterprise platform-as-a-service in the public cloud.  Over the past year Bluemix has evolved in many ways, but two of them have started Bluemix down the path of being more than just a public PaaS. First, we introduced Bluemix dedicated.  Bluemix dedicated was a private single tenant instance of Bluemix running in our Softlayer data centers.  This helped address some concerns from customers about having th

Deploying Spring Boot Apps To Bluemix
Mon, Feb 2nd 2015 9:36a   Ryan- Baxter
In my previous three posts (Building “Bootiful” Java Apps, Building REST APIs With Spring Boot, Securing REST APIs With Spring Boot) I have described how to build and secure a Spring Boot app. In the final post in this series we will deploy the app to IBM Bluemix. If you don’t already have a Bluemix account you can register for a free 30 day trial. Spring Boot apps can be packaged as either a war or a jar, however there is a small benefit to deploying your application as a

IBM InterConnect, IBM’s cloud and mobile conference, is about a month away at this point.  At this years event there is a mini developer focused event called Dev@InterConnect.  It is kind of like a conference inside a conference in that it is 2 days of all developer focused topics.  The first day consists of different “camps”.  There are camps on cloud, mobile, Watson, and DevOps.  On day two there will be what we are calling “Open Talk” sessions.  The Open Ta

Sample Node-RED Flow Using Websockets
Tue, Jan 13th 2015 9:11a   Ryan- Baxter
I have been using Node-RED as part of Bluemix for a while now, it is super easy to build some pretty powerful applications by just dragging, dropping, and configuring “nodes” right in your browser.  90% of the time you don’t need to write any code, and when you do, the code is very simplistic.  I find Node-RED to be a great tool for getting something up an running quickly, for example when building a prototype or participating in a hackathon.  In a couple weeks I will be doi

Securing REST APIs With Spring Boot
Tue, Jan 6th 2015 7:14a   Ryan- Baxter
In my previous post I described how to build REST APIs with Spring Boot.  One glaring omission to that post was security.  Security can be a daunting part of building any app because if you get it wrong there are huge implications.  Luckily with Spring Boot, like with most other things, adding security to your applications is pretty simple. All you need to do is add a dependency to your Maven POM.  If we take the project from the previous blog post all you need to add is org.springframewor

Building upon my previous blog post on Spring Boot, I would now like to talk about building REST APIs with Spring Boot.  For the past 3 years or so, I have not created a web application that did not have REST APIs.  REST has become the go to way for building web services in today’s applications.  I am not going to spend time discussing what REST is or why it is so popular so if you are not familiar with REST and the benefits of building REST APIs there are plenty of good resources out

Building “Bootiful” Java Apps
Mon, Dec 8th 2014 10:11a   Ryan- Baxter
A few months ago when I started to learn Node.js I came across code that looked like thisvar http = require('http'); http.createServer(function (req, res) {   res.writeHead(200, {'Content-Type': 'text/plain'});   res.end('Hello World'); }).listen(3000);If you are not familiar with JavaScript, this code starts an HTTP server running on localhost at port 3000 and when you hit http://localhost:3000 it returns the string “Hello World”.

Dedicated Bluemix Instances On Softlayer And Bluemix UK

Greetings from Strata + Hadoop Worlds in Barcelona Spain.  Yesterday was a big day for Bluemix with two major announcements. The first announcement was the addition of a new Bluemix “region” in the UK.  At a high level, this means that you can now deploy and run your apps within our UK data center.  This will obviously helps with latency concerns for users you may have in the UK region.  Deploying apps to the UK data center in the Bluemix UI is as simple as selecting the the UK r

Updated: Bluemix and the Internet of Things
Wed, Nov 12th 2014 2:22p   Ryan- Baxter
A few weeks ago we moved the Internet of Things service out of beta indicating it was ready for prime time.  This was exciting news except for the fact that it introduced some breaking changes, code written against the beta IoT service would most likely not work with the new service.  This included code I had written a few months ago to demonstrate the beta IoT service.  I finally had some time to go back and update this code so it works with the new IoT service.  The new code is now availab

Accessing Application Logs In Bluemix
Wed, Oct 29th 2014 10:14a   Ryan- Baxter
Being able to view your application’s log files is essential for any developer.  Developers use their log statements to gain insight into what is happening in their application throughout the application lifecycle.  Accessing your logs when running your application locally is easy, but when the application is deployed to a remote server things get a little bit trickier.  In the past, when deploying your app to your own infrastructure or even infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) you could acce

Why I Have Started To Embrace The Command Line

Last night my tweet inspired a debate on Twitter about the use of the command line.  Oddly enough I was in a meeting with a customer yesterday and due to some problem I encountered during my demo I had to open the command line.  Once I did this he immediately asked me “Do I need to use the command line?”.  (As a side note the person who asked this question was not a developer or system admin.)   In addition a few weeks ago at MWLUG, Nathan Freeman, who I have the utmost respect

Over the past few weeks I have done presentations on Bluemix at two ICS user groups, MWLUG and ICONUK.  I did pretty much the same presentation at both mainly focused on introducing developers to Bluemix.  Obviously, since these user groups are focused mainly around ICS, there is interest in how Domino and XPages fits into the Bluemix story.  Well as of right now you cannot deploy your XPages apps to Bluemix.  However, Kramer Reeves announced at MWLUG that ICS is investigating how to make th

Achieving The Elusive Hybrid Cloud With Bluemix
Thu, Aug 28th 2014 6:12a   Ryan- Baxter
Public clouds are great.  They offer great elasticity and cost savings, and in the case of a PaaS like Bluemix, allows us (developers) to forget about maintaining any infrastructure and focus in on our code.  However we all realize that public cloud can’t be used for everything.  There are some applications and services that must remain in our own data centers on private networks.  The reasons why vary, maybe it is too much work to move the resource to the cloud, or maybe the data in t

Webinar: Building Highly Scalable Applications With Bluemix
Mon, Aug 11th 2014 8:12a   Ryan- Baxter
The elasticity of the cloud is a huge selling point for most developers when considering where to deploy their applications.  The ability to add and remove instances of your application based on the load against it saves you a lot of time and money.  However you can’t just deploy any application to the cloud and expect it will behave properly when scaled horizontally.  In fact, if you didn’t think about scalability when building your application chances are your application will b

Build a REST API For Your IoT Data Using MongoDB, Node-RED, and Bluemix
Mon, Jul 21st 2014 8:16a   Ryan- Baxter
In my previous post I talked about how to use the IBM IoT Cloud and Bluemix to build apps based on data coming from an TI Sensor Tag.  One of the apps I showed was Node-RED, however it was ver basic in that it only printed the data to a debug node.  In this video I show you how you can store that data in a MongoDB and create a REST API for the data all in Node-RED without writing any code!  Enjoy! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_LBZagavmxY

Bluemix ToDo App Updates
Fri, Jul 18th 2014 10:15a   Ryan- Baxter
The ToDo apps for Bluemix was one of the first sample projects I published after becoming a developer advocate for Bluemix.  Even though the apps are simple, I still think they are some of the most meaningful samples we have.  Today I have made them even better  Since Bluemix went GA we introduced the MongoLab service and an enhanced Cloudant service.  I have decided to change the ToDo apps so they take advantage of both of these new services. Why change something that is already good?  T

Bluemix and the Internet of Things

Want to take a guess as to how many devices will be connected to the internet by the end of 2015?  Give up?  15 billion.  Yup ,that’s right, that is 15 followed by 9 zeros.  By 2020 that number will increase to 40 billion! All of these devices make up what is called the internet of things.  As you might imagine with the number of devices growing there have been a number of new technologies emerging that help developers connect and use the data comming from these devices.  One of the

Using Custom Domain Names In Bluemix
Mon, Jun 23rd 2014 6:12a   Ryan- Baxter
One of the more common questions I get about using Bluemix is “How do I use my own domain names for my apps in Bluemix?”.  Bluemix allows you to bind multiple routes to any given application so in addition to the mybluemix.net route your application has you can bind any number of other routes as well whether they use the mybluemix.net domain name or your own domain name.  Here is a short video of how you can use your own domain names in your application routes. http://www.youtube.c

Using The Mobile Data Service In Bluemix
Thu, Jun 19th 2014 8:14a   Ryan- Baxter
I have stated to look at the mobile services that are within Bluemix and experiment with how developers can use them in their mobile apps.  I decided to start with the Mobile Data service.  This service provides SDKs for iOS and Android (as well as ones for Node.js and client-side Javascript) which allow you to perform basic CRUD operations from your mobile app.  However before I got started playing with the Mobile Data service I needed a mobile app to experiment with.  Since I am an Apple u

Access Service Info With Spring Cloud

Adding services to your application to integrate additional functionality is one of the primary benefits of using a PaaS like Bluemix.  Whether that is a database, a mobile push service, or some type of analytics service, you just pick what you need and bind them to your application.  You don’t have to install software of setup VMs, just point and click.  After you have done that you are always faced with the same problem, you now need to access the service info in the VCAP_SERVICES env

Article On How To Build The BlueChatter App In Node.js

A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post on a sample app I built in Node.js called BlueChatter.  At a high level the app is an IRC or chat like client.  However, that is not the main purpose of the app.  The real purpose of the app is to show how you can write apps that are scalable in BlueMix.  I have also now detailed the process of how I constructed this application in an article on developerWorks.  It takes you through writing the initial implementation, deploying it to BlueMix, and then cha

Over the past few months IBM has been holding what it calls “200 Days Of BlueMix“.  These are essentially workshops where IBM introduces users to BlueMix and gives them the opportunity to work side by side with IBM engineers to get started building apps on the platform.  There have been a couple of videos that have come out of these events with some users sharing their initial thoughts about BlueMix and how they think it can help them change the way they are building applications.

BlueMix Sample: ToDo Apps Built Using Your Favorite Language
Thu, May 1st 2014 10:12a   Ryan- Baxter
The ToDo app is one of the most popular samples to build when learning new languages and frameworks.  Only the Hello World sample is more popular.  While Hello World makes you feel accomplished, it generally leaves you with more questions than answers.  To really understand how things are working you need to build something a little more complex. Enter the ToDo app.  When I joined the team of BlueMix dev advocates one of the first discussions we had was around which sample apps we wanted to

BlueMix / Cloud Foundry Manifest Generator
Wed, Apr 30th 2014 10:12a   Ryan- Baxter
Using manifests when deploying your applications to BlueMix or any Cloud Foundry deployment makes your deployments simple and consistent.  They are a requirement for using the deployment features in the IBM Dev Ops services but have many benefits even when doing development locally.  If you have very robust cf push commands it is much simpler to put all the parameters in a manifest so you don’t have to type them out each time.  The problem is that for newbies and people who are not fami

You Choose The Runtime On BlueMix!!!
Thu, Apr 3rd 2014 8:11a   Ryan- Baxter
As most of you know, you can deploy an app that uses virtually any runtime to BlueMix.  As long as there is a buildpack for the runtime, your app will run on BlueMix.  Of course knowing the ins and outs of using the buildpack for your runtime can be a little tricky sometimes.  That is why over the past few weeks I have been working on implementing a ToDo application in Java, Node, Sinatra, Python, and PHP.  This idea was inspired by todomvc.com which is dedicated to showing developers how to

This past week I have been working on writing an app in PHP and getting it deployed on BlueMix.  The first thing I did before I started was take a look at the buildpacks that were available.  Last week I made the mistake of picking one without trying it first and wasted a huge amount of time trying to figure out what was wrong with my app when it ended up being a problem with the buildpack.  This time I decided I would put in a little effort into seeing which ones worked first.  Browsing the

For the past 2 days I have been trying to get a very simple Python app deployed and running on BlueMix.  This proved to be a little challenging because there were no clear cut instructions or simple examples to go by (that I could find at first), and I had never written any Python before.  After spending most of the day yesterday talking to some expert IBMers I eventually got a simple hello world Python app using Flask deployed to BlueMix.  Later on, I came across this project on GitHub which
