Performing Zero Downtime Deployments From IBM DevOps Services To Bluemix
Wed, Apr 15th 2015 2:57p   Ryan- Baxter
In my previous blog post I showed how to setup a deployment pipeline in IBM DevOps Services for a Maven project.  The problem with that pipeline was that while the deployment is happening your application is unavaialable.  Obviously in a production situation this is unacceptable, we need our application to be available 100% of the time (or as close to that number as possible).  Luckily Bluemix allows us to map the same route to multiple applications allowing us to take advantage of the Cloud

Building and Deploying Maven Projects To Bluemix With IBM DevOps Services

Recently I had gotten a couple questions regarding how to build and deploy a Maven project to IBM Bluemix using IBM DevOps Services.  It is actually very simple to do, especially if you are familiar with the Maven and Cloud Foundry CLIs.  Below are two videos on how to setup a build and deploy stage for your Maven projects.

IBM Bluemix Keynote From The O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference
Thu, Mar 19th 2015 7:34a   Ryan- Baxter
Yesterday during the keynote at the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference in Boston MA, my colleague Mark Vanderwiele gave a 5 minute keynote talk on IBM Bluemix, Watson, and IoT.  Mark demoed an app our team had put together using IBM Watson’s speech to text and text to speech services to control a Sphero Ball using the IBM IoT Foundation.   You can watch a replay of the keynote below.

Easily Secure Your Bluemix Apps With Auth0
Wed, Mar 4th 2015 2:01a   Ryan- Baxter
A topic that often comes up when I speak to other developers building apps on Bluemix is authentication.  Many developers are comfortable with securing their apps in traditional development models.  In the cloud, authentication is often slightly different.  For example, you must store session data in an external data store instead of relying on what the app container provides.  When you want to connect to an existing LDAP, Active Directory, or SAML service, that is even more daunting Rec

Bluemix Java Developers: Your life just got a little easier!
Mon, Mar 2nd 2015 11:00a   Ryan- Baxter
….well I hope anyways This week I got around to open sourcing a project I have been working and using for a little while.  The project is called Bluemix Cloud Connectors.  The libraries in this project are meant to make accessing credentials bound to your Java apps in Bluemix a little easier. What about auto-configuration you say? Well I personally was never a fan of the auto-configuration that happens when you use the Liberty buildpack in Bluemix.  Don’t get me wrong, it is nice

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
