The Cloud Standards Customer Council has published a new reference architecture that details how to support e-Commerce solutions using cloud computing. The architecture describes the flows and relationships between business capabilities and architectural components for e-Commerce applications that use cloud computing infrastructure, platforms and/or services. This presentation will outline key considerations for building out advanced e-Commerce capabilities and determining how best to instantiate an e-Commerce system using private, public or hybrid cloud deployment models.

3000 Members now in the BlueMix LinkedIn Group!

Today, as I processed the pending membership requests on LinkedIn for the IBM Bluemix group, we surpassed 3,000 members!  In less than two years the group continues to grow and membership and activity have grown regularly each week. Keep promoting it and keep posting important material to the group!

While the group has some good discussions and examples of how BlueMix is used, if you prefer video then you should consider checking out the YouTube channel dedicated to IBM BlueMix, which is run by the Developerworks team:

Managing your BlueMix applications in Slack with Cloudbot

bluemix-slack

Slack has become a very popular collaboration tool for developers and designers. Think of LinkedIn groups combined with a Facebook or Twitter feed that is isolated to only the team members participating. It is equivalent to an on going persistent eMeeting chat that never ends, is searchable, and most of all, captures all conversations around a topic in a single place. Some argue Slack is the end of email and other collaboration techniques, specifically around projects.

In this video Yu Cao demonstrates how to setup Cloudbot for slack where you can then chat with the bot to get information about your your BlueMix applications.

“Cloudbot is a ChatOps bot platform built to be deployed on IBM Bluemix that integrates services and tools into a development or operations team’s workflow in a collaborative chat environment.” – link
