Two guys in a Starbucks now have access to the same computing power as a Fortune 500 company.

Jim DetersFounder, Galvanize

Cloud computing has shifted where innovation is being done

At one time, only large enterprises could afford enterprise software. Cloud has changed all of that. Now you dont have to buy software and compute power. You can rent it. This has changed the economics of computing and empowered a whole generation of new entrants.

What is Bluemix?IBMs cloud platform. Includes services at the Infrastructure level, the Platform level to the Software as a Service level all provisioned under one consistent experience.VirtualizationServersStorageNetworkingRuntimeMiddlewareOSVirtualizationServersStorageNetworkingRuntimeMiddlewareOSVirtualizationServersStorageNetworkingMobileIntegrated DevOpsAnalyticsAPI EconomyNew Biz ModelsCognitiveInternet of ThingsFlexible DeploymentNot JustInfrastructure as a ServiceNot JustPlatformas a ServiceApplication Development, Orchestration, IntegrationSecurity, Management, GovernanceManagement & SecurityInnovationAgility


That is what Bluemix delivers: a platform for RAPID INNOVATION but also MANAGEMENT and SECURITY. It is a cloud based solution. It provides all you would want from and IaaS (like Amazon Web Services), as well as a PaaS (like Microsoft Azure).

But Bluemix goes well beyond that. It is a platform for innovation.3

How is Bluemix different?Access to Watson Choice of deployment options (with consistency)Most compute optionsHuge catalog of servicesGreat DevOps ServicesIntegration.Ease of Deployment

So lets start with a reminder of what Bluemix is. Bluemix is the Digital Innovation Platform that allows you to quickly develop applications using Open Technologies like Cloud Foundry, Docker Containers, Virtual Images for OpenStack. These compute types allow you to build applications in virtually any programming language you like. Java, NodeJS, Go, PHP, Python, Ruby and many more. These applications can reuse the growing number of IBM, Thirdparty and community services in the Bluemix Catalog The include web, mobile, cognitive and many other services I will demonstrate today. You can use your own DevOps tools or those services provide by Bluemix. Bluemix is available three way. Public, Dedicated and Local in your own premise datacenter. .4

What is DevOps to you?Means different things to different people. You ask 5 people and youll get 5 different answers.A definition I really like:DevOps: A culture where people, regardless of title or background, work together to imagine, develop, deploy and operate a system.Rugged Enterprise DevSecNetQAGovOpsNot a role

Before we get started with the exercises heres a few of the tools, services and infrastructure you will be using while going through the labs. At the top we have dev-time tools, on the left of Bluemix we have services you use during runtime, on the right we have our deployment mechanism and the buildpack used and on the bottom we have the infrastructure that all of this is running on.Questions: Who uses source control? Which?Who has used Bluemix DevOps Services before?Who has used Bluemix before?Has anyone here used Softlayer (VMs)?11

Extra - See how an app is put together Text to speech app using Watson APIsWalk through the stages of this app***SMEs may also choose to explore the Internet of Things boilerplate prior to starting this lab (they can use the existing flow in Node-RED with a virtual IOT device to show how the boilerplate works)typos on page 4 for watson tts lab:

1. Drag a tan HTTP Request In node onto the workspace. Set the method to GET and the URL to /audio. - the Tan HTTP Request In node is the HTTP node under "Input" nodes in Node-RED2. Drag a format node onto the workspace. Double-click the function node to edit it and add the following code. - Should be "Drag a template node onto the workspace. Double-click the template node to edit it and add the following code."3. Drag an HTTP Request Out node onto the workspace. - the Tan HTTP Request In node is the HTTP node under "Input" nodes in Node-REDSMEs can provide an iteration for this lab in which they may choose to add other Watson services or functionality to the app i.e.- Add Watson Translation services to convert the input string from English to French prior before converting into speech - Use the Twitter output node (it's the last node under Social nodes) to tweet out whatever message is being converted by the app - Use the Twilio node (requires account sign up on Twilio) to send out text messages of the message being converted by the app
