What we're about

This group is for all Beginners, Developers, Subject Matter Experts, IT Consultants and Researchers who are excited and enthusiasts about learning and developing applications on IBM® Bluemix™ cloud.

Embrace the opportunity to enable yourself with knowledge to develop applications in bluemix and get ready for the future. You will get an opportunity to meet with product architects from IBM, experts, fellow developers and like minded people.

Join us today to learn Bluemix, deep dive into it and start converting your ideas to develop innovative applications easily. Our meetups are free!

To get started with Bluemix - Sign Up (http://ibm.biz/ibmbluemix) for a free Bluemix trial and start building your application.

What is IBM Bluemix?
IBM® Bluemix™ is an open-standards, cloud-based platform for building, managing, and running apps of all types, such as web, mobile, big data, and smart devices. Capabilities include Java, mobile back-end development, and application monitoring, as well as features from ecosystem partners and open source - all provided as-a-service in the cloud.
Bluemix is built on the Cloud Foundry (http://www.cloudfoundry.org/) open source technology that provides mobile and web developers access to IBM software for integration, security, transaction, and other key functions, as well as software from business partners. Bluemix offers more control to application developers by using its Platform as a Service (PaaS) offering, and also provides pre-built Mobile Backend as a Service (MBaaS) capabilities. The goal is to simplify the delivery of an application by providing services that are ready for immediate use and hosting capabilities to enable internal scale development.
With the broad set of services and runtimes in Bluemix, the developer gains control and flexibility, and has access to various data options, from predictive analytics to big data.

Building Cyber Resiliency into your Architecture to reduce Downtime

Network event

329 attendees from 106 groups hosting

Link visible for attendees

Topic repeated at 2 different times, please join the session that is best suited for your time zone.
Over 18 Billion text messages are updated sent every day, over 6 Billion cell phone calls are made every day, and over 1 Billion credit card transactions occur every day around the world. Not to mention all of the cable TV or streaming choices we make, medical record updates, travel records created and (think planes, trains, and automobiles [Uber/Lyft/Doordash, etc.]) – and counting.

All of these things we rely on for our everyday lives today. If the system behind these is not available for any reason it can have a major impact on the global economy.

This session will discuss the architecture decisions that need to be made to ensure that the systems you are designing can stay up and running through cyber attacks, infrastructure updates, software updates, database maintenance, etc.

Presenter: Dwaine Snow
Dwaine Snow is a WorldWide enablement leader helping clients ensure they are safe now, and into the Quantum era through cyber resiliency, zero trust, and data security solutions that keep their systems and data safe and always available.

Getting Started with Quantum Computing Hands-on

Network event

301 attendees from 101 groups hosting

Link visible for attendees

Topic repeated at 2 different times, please join the session that is best suited for your time zone.
In this hands-on workshop, you will learn the fundamentals of programming a quantum computer. We will use the IBM Quantum platform to create quantum circuits both visually using the Circuit Composer and with Python code using the open source Qiskit framework.

You will have the opportunity to run your circuits using quantum simulators and on real quantum computers in the IBM Cloud. Attendees should sign-up for a free account on the IBM Quantum platform beforehand at https://quantum-computing.ibm.com to best experience this hands-on session.

Note that this is part 2 of an 8-session series on Quantum Computing on Mar 22/23, Apr 5/6, Apr 19/20, May 3/4, May 17/18, May 31/Jun 1, Jun 14/15, Jul 5/6. The sessions are not prerequisites for each other, and are not recorded. We will provide reference links and do quick recaps of previous content as required, so if you miss an earlier session, you can still get value from subsequent sessions.

Presenter: Christopher Burton

Chris Burton is an IBM Quantum ambassador and certified Qiskit Developer. He is currently completing his thesis on Quantum Machine Learning (QML) and is always open to chatting quantum computing enthusiasts.
