Whether you are a developer with an enterprise or a startup or a student having an idea and want to quickly evaluate by prototyping, IBM Cloud is the way to get started overriding the infrastructure overheads. You can solve real problems by building your applications with infrastructure, Watson, software, and services on the Bluemix cloud platform.
Bluemix provides various ways for you to run your apps. For example, you can work through Cloud Foundry and IBM Bluemix Container Service. You would use IBM Bluemix Container Service to run Docker containers in a hosted cloud environment on Bluemix.
You can use IBM Bluemix OpenWhisk for distributed, event-driven computing. OpenWhisk runs application logic in response to events or direct invocations from web or mobile apps over HTTP.
You can use Bluemix Mobile services to incorporate pre-built, managed, and scalable cloud services into your mobile apps.
Recently, I was honored to present at the IBM Cloud Innovation forum as part of the OutThink tour 2016 on "From Idea to Application in minutes – A Walkthrough," introducing IBM Cloud to top leaders and developers from MNCs and Startups. The video is a testimony of how rapid and simple it is to translate your idea into an app using Bluemix as your cloud platform. It has an intro to a Node.js application and mobile app built without writing a single line of code.
