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 [read] Keywords: ibm

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!

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 [read] Keywords: connections
Bluemix and the Internet of Things
Wed, Jul 16th 2014 10:11a Ryan- Baxter 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 [read] Keywords: ibm

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
