In this article I’m presenting an IBM Bluemix DevOps Services overview. After some experiments on the Commodore computers I began seriously to develop code on 1987, I developed my first programs in Pascal and Fortran on VAX-11/780.
Currently the game is changed again: cloud, mobile, internet of things, cognitive services, software as service and new development environments have been created. Currently I’m using the IBM Bluemix DevOps Services, DevOps is Software as a Service (SaaS) on the cloud that supports continuous delivery. With DevOps you can develop, track, plan, and deploy software in one place.
From your projects, you can access everything that you need to build all kinds of applications. After you build an application you can deploy it to the Bluemix platform. In minutes, you can go from source code to a running application. You can create a project in DevOps Services or from your Bluemix application with a click of the ADD GIT button.
Moreover DevOps Services supports deployment to Bluemix with predefined build packs for Java, Node.js, Go, PHP, Python, and Ruby application. If you are building a Node.js application you can make quick updates as you develop and debug by using Bluemix Live Sync.
Bluemix Live Sync works on the command line and in the Web IDE, this is my console:
