Mobile Apps Monitoring With IBM Bluemix


Mobile Apps Monitoring With IBM Bluemix
// DZone.com Feed

One of the great capabilities of Bluemix is that developers can see information about how their mobile apps are used in a server side dashboard. This includes usage statistics, network traffic and devices types as well as client side logs. Being able to see logs from all mobile devices is very useful since physical access to devices is obviously hard and sometimes not possible.

In order to use this functionality Bluemix provides the Mobile Client Access service and SDKs for iOS, Android and hybrid apps.

Blindsist – Assisting Visually Impaired People using IBM Bluemix Visual Recognition


via Blindsist – Assisting Visually Impaired People using IBM Bluemix Visual Recognition | Abdul Muhaymin – Being Student!.

This blog post will cover how I developed Blindsist app for Xhacknight.

The app was developed using Xamarin.Forms, targeting 3 major platforms (iOS, Android and Windows Phone) same time.

Blindsist is a simple one page application. Objective of the application is taking a photo using Smartphone, The photo is then uploaded to IBM Bluemix using REST Api. IBM Bluemix returns the data in Json format, which will be parsed and spoken out using Native Text to Speech services.

Open a new Xamarin.Forms Portable Class Project.

Create centralized logging in Docker containers with NodeJS and Bluemix


via Create centralized logging in Docker containers with Node.js and Bluemix.

When building the microservices that make up a Bluemix application, developers often encounter questions such as: How do you follow the microservices’ states and their log outputs, and what is happening with the different parts of the application? In this article, I show you how to deploy a single microservice—in this case, a Cloud Foundry–based Node.js application—into the Bluemix platform along with one way of creating centralized logging inside Docker containers.

A favorite in Bluemix prototyping is the Node-RED interface, a wiring tool that simplifies programming by turning common functions into nodes that can be added, removed, and connected at will.  In particular, Node-RED is a rather magical interface that simplifies MQTT, a publish-suscribe messaging protocol, in such a way that just about anyone can connect a device without much effort.  What does this mean?  I can send data from a device with a few simple lines of code.

Send push notifications automatically with Node-RED and the IBM Bluemix Push service


via Send push notifications automatically with Node-RED and the IBM Bluemix Push service.

The application that you’ll build in this tutorial demonstrates how to push mobile notifications automatically by using the Push service in IBM® Bluemix™ with an instance of Node-RED. The application analyzes the Twitter sentiment score in Node-RED and sends a push notification if the sentiment score is three or higher.

IBM MobileFirst Platform Server on Bluemix.net in under 5 minutes


via IBM MobileFirst Platform Server on Bluemix.net in under 5 minutes – IBM MobileFirst Platform.

You may have already heard about IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation and its capabilities. Some of the industry-grade features like security frameworkthat it provides may have appealed to you and you now want to try it! You can do this in under 5 minutes, without downloading any software and without running around to find a machine to install it on!

Typically when you build a POC or demo of a mobile app with MobileFirst Platform,

After this the fun begins. What if your boss or client wants to try the app for themselves and show it to their teams? This means you had to keep your laptop running or find a desktop where you could install the developer studio. When was the last time you looked for a desktop? And it gets more fun if you are a remote worker working off a mobile internet dongle and the clients cannot get into your base office intranet.
