In this new blog post I want to address a common situation I see students facing: there are several cloud providers and you want to check out the different platforms. The reason is you want to be prepared; for example working with cloud resources related to courses at your university or for a hackathon. One of these cloud providers is IBM Cloud and this blog post is about how to get started with IBM Cloud.
In this new blog post I want to address a common situation for developers: You want to participate in a hackathon, and you plan to use IBM Cloud, but you have never used it before. How to prepare
In that blog post I want to point out an awesome topic: "Run a Docker container image as a Cloud Foundry App on IBM Cloud" Rainer Hochecker, Simon Moser and I had an interesting exchange about running a Docker image as a Cloud Foundry App on IBM Cloud. The advantage with that approach is: you … Continue reading Run a Docker image as a Cloud Foundry App on IBM Cloud
In my last blog post I did an introduction to "how use the starter kit for Node-RED on IBM Cloud" and in this new blog post I want to highlight the Node-RED Twitter-follower-flow I developed as an introduction to different topics I frequently face at hackathons. Here is the link to the "Twitter-follower-flow" GitHub project. … Continue reading (outdated) A Node-RED Twitter-follower-flow

From my perspective Node-RED is a very helpful tool at hackathons. (just take a look in my blog post How to prepare for a Hackathon with IBM Cloud?) The … Continue reading (outdated) A short introduction of the Node-RED Starter kit on IBM Cloud for Hackathons

The reason for this is mostly that cors (cross-origin resource sharing) is not enabled for the Node-RED server. This blog post is a simple workaround for this problem. By the way, you can use … Continue reading Cors and Node-RED using a simple forwarding server
