Ace your hackathon with serious services, APIs and tools. Lots of them! Tools you can add, change, toss out, re-purpose, and otherwise bend to do your bidding. IBM created Bluemix to be a single-solution environment that lets you develop, test and deploy just about anything you want to make, like those million-dollar ideas you've been hiding from the world.
Want to build a browser-based chat app that requires little to no system resources? We have Node.js. Is your boss asking you to scale to billions of requests a day? Do it with Mongo DB. Does Nanna want you to build an app to track daytime soap storylines? You're going to need some message queuing.
IBM is supporting the International Space App Challenge, focusing on solutions that address global needs applicable to both life on Earth and life in space. The four challenge areas include: Earth, Outer Space, Humans and Robotics. Bluemix has the tools to create a unique and innovative applications for this hackathon, and for your future challenges.
