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.

Access Service Info With Spring Cloud
Wed, Jun 4th 2014 9:15a Ryan- Baxter 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 [read] Keywords: application

Article On How To Build The BlueChatter App In Node.js
Tue, May 27th 2014 4:11p Ryan- Baxter 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 [read] Keywords: ibm
First Impressions Of BlueMix
Fri, May 23rd 2014 7:12a Ryan- Baxter 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.

Replay Of Yesterday’s BlueMix Virtual Meetup Now Available!!!
Thu, May 22nd 2014 9:11a Ryan- Baxter If you were not able to attend yesterday’s BlueMix Virtual Meetup, the replay is now available on YouTube. Thankfully the demo gods were with me yesterday and I was able to successfully complete a live demo of adding a service, updating the code, and pushing back to BlueMix! Unfortunately the audio was a little choppy at points, not sure why. I will probably give Hangouts one more shot, maybe it was a one time thing but if it happens again I will look into other ways of hosting the v [read] Keywords:

This being our first meetup, the content will mainly be introductory and if the demo gods are with us we should have some live demos as well (with real live coding!!!).
