Read on to find out more about IBM Bluemix, and how you can win $150 in Amazon vouchers by getting involved…
Catchy has recently entered into another exciting evangelist project, partnering with the IBM developerWorks team to promote IBM Bluemix, IBM’s open cloud platform that gives mobile and web developers access to IBM software for integration, security, transaction and other key functions, as well as software from business partners.
Bluemix is a fairly new offering from IBM so you may not be familiar with it, although you’ve likely heard of Watson, a cognitive technology that processes information more like a human than a computer.
Watson is just one piece of the Bluemix offering though, so to help spread the word about Bluemix and the great tools it brings to developers we’ve put together a developerWorks evangelist team. The four evangelists are available to assist with any questions developers may have about getting started:
Andrew Long is a professional developer from the St. Louis, MO area with over 18 years of coding experience. He is well versed in HTML, VBScript, ASP, .Net, Silverlight, C# and some Ajax.
Erick Brown is a .NET and web developer from Portland, OR with 5 years’ experience developing and designing native and web applications from the ground up.
Greg Stoll is a professional software engineer from the Austin, TX area with 10+ years of experience with multiple coding languages.
Atley Hunter is a professional developer from Toronto, Canada area over 20 years’ development experience. He’s developed for every platform available.
To get started now with IBM Bluemix, sign up here. The 30-day trial is free, and no credit card is needed.
What’s more, as an exclusive offer from Catchy to celebrate the launch of our IBM Bluemix evangelists, everyone who signs up and emails their Bluemix username to firstname.lastname@example.org will go into a prize draw to win $150 of Amazon vouchers, just in time for that last minute Christmas shopping! Hurry though, you’ve only got until 10 December, 2014 to do it. (As always, there’s some small print – this is the full set of terms and conditions.)
