  • Virtual Hands On Lab : Processing Big Data using Serverless and Java

    Serverless Cloud Functions are a powerful tool in the software developer’s toolbelt. They allow us to quickly build out solutions, with the ability to deploy for free - then run at minimal cost, paying for only the exact amount of time the Cloud Functions are being used. In this session, we’ll live-code a use case for doing Big Data processing. Here’s what we will cover: 🎓 What you will learn: - Describe the use case: process a large amount of data and store calculated, derived data, in a database - Use a Cloud Function trigger to process new data when it arrives - Use a Quarkus application, running in minimal-overhead command mode, to load and do calculations (running as a Cloud Function) - Store the calculated data in a NoSQL database - Write another Cloud Function to display the data in a web browser Finally, we’ll leave you with a hands-on coding exercise - that you can run directly in your browser! Agenda: 12:30 pm: Event kick-off 12:45-2:00 pm: Webinar 2-2:15 pm - Final Q&A Speaker: Pratik Patel (@prpatel) is an all-around software and hardware enthusiast with experience in the healthcare, telecom, financial services, and startup sectors. He's written some books, hacks on open source, and is currently a lead developer advocate at IBM. He helps to organize the Atlanta Java User Group, North Atlanta JavaScript meetup, and Big Data Atlanta, a frequent speaker at tech events, and master builder of nachos. Host: Pooja Mistry(@poojamakes) is a developer advocate for the IBM Cloud Platform. She works on expanding the reach of IBM's technology to New York City's developer community. Her area of interest includes prototyping withNode-RED, analyzing data, creating custom models with AI/MLservices, NLU/NLP, building chatbots, and using open source libraries and SDKs to develop fun and exciting projects!

  • Serv(er)s-Up! Serverless Applications w Cloud Functions & App ID

    Join IBM Developer for a hands-on IBM Cloud™ Functions & IBM Cloud™ App ID workshop. You will learn how to use IBM Cloud™ Functions along with Cognitive and Data services to build a serverless backend for a mobile application. IBM Cloud™ App ID allows you to easily add authentication to web and mobile apps with zero code changes and no redeploy required. Not all mobile developers have experience managing server-side logic, or a server to start with. They would prefer to focus their efforts on the app they are building. Now what if they could reuse their existing development skills to write their mobile backend? IBM Cloud™ Functions is a serverless event-driven platform. As highlighted in this workshop, the actions you deploy can easily be turned into HTTP endpoints as web actions to build a web application backend API. A web application being a client to the REST API, it is easy to take this example a step further and apply the same approach to build a backend for a mobile app. And with Cloud Functions, mobile developers can write the actions in the same language used for their mobile app, Java for Android, and Swift for iOS. With IBM Cloud™ App ID, you no longer have to worry about setting up infrastructure for identity, ensuring geo-availability, and confirming compliance regulations. Instead, enhance your apps with advanced security capabilities, such as multifactor authentication (MFA), single sign-on (SSO) and user-defined password policies. You can also use App ID's scalable user registry to let users manage their own accounts. IBM Cloud™ App ID is Payment Card Industry (PCI), Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and Service Organization Control (SOC2) compliant. In this workshop, you will learn how to use IBM Cloud Functions and cognitive and data services to build a serverless backend for a mobile application. AGENDA : 5:00pm Check-In & Introductions 5: 15pm IBM Cloud & Dev Setup 5:30pm Cloud Functions & App ID Workshop 6:45pm Q&A About the Presenter : Jenna Ritten (@jritten) is a cloud software developer turned developer advocate for IBM Cloud. She works on expanding the reach of open source technologies to Detroit and Austin's developer communities. Her areas of interest include hackathons, design-thinking workshops, NLU/NLP, gamified learning, and Blockchain. Jenna left Detroit to attend Dev Bootcamp San Francisco to learn full-stack web development before joining IBM Austin as part of the Tech Re-Entry program. She is an advocate for non-traditional people in tech, much like herself, and provides support by building and fostering communities for underrepresented people in tech.

  • IBM Blockchain 101 for Developers

    Online event

    Join IBM Developer for a hands-on Blockchain workshop. Build a kick-starter blockchain network and start coding with IBM's next-generation Blockchain platform. The blockchain revolution continues! If you’re exploring distributed ledger technology and want to build a Blockchain for demos, pilots, or pre-production staging, this workshop is for you. We’ll introduce you to several ways to get started, including the next generation IBM Blockchain Platform. Kick-start your Blockchain network with the VS Code extension. In this workshop you will learn how to spin up a Blockchain network based on the latest open source Hyperledger Fabric framework using the next generation platform, or if you prefer to build it manually component by component. But let’s we will review key concepts around developing a Blockchain network. AGENDA : 5:00pm Check-In & Introductions 5: 15pm IBM Blockchain Tech Talk 5:45pm Blockchain Workshop 6:45pm Q&A About the Presenter : Daniel Tal (@danielHtal) is an Offering Manager for the IBM Blockchain Platform.

  • [POSTPONED]Hello, World! Create REST APIs For CRUD Operations Using API Connect

    Join IBM Developer for a hands-on workshop where you will create REST APIs for CRUD operations using IBM API Connect. JavaScript has been a part of the developer landscape since the mid-’90s, but has only begun to be recognized as a server-side platform in the past few years. Netscape may have been the first to experiment with server-side JavaScript, but it wasn’t until Google embedded V8 into a standalone executable (what we now call Node.js) that we saw the potential for running JavaScript code everywhere, not just in a web browser. Recent interest has sparked an explosion of new frameworks for server-side JavaScript; Meteor, Backbone.js, KeystoneJS, and Sails.js come to mind immediately, and more are there for the research-minded. Each builds on top of certain core primitives and targets more or less the same data storage facilities, but each brings its own flavor to the exercise — a particular way of building applications that will seem most obvious, intuitive, and comfortable to developers already familiar with the style that informs the framework.
