Lynne Ward from Pepper Hustle speaks about the importance of finding true work life balance and how it's a necessity, not a nicety and explains how 15 minutes of mindful movement can change how you think, look and feel.
This workshop will be hosted on Zoom and requires separate registration. You will receive a calendar invite before the event with your link for your workshop.
Day 2: June 17, 2021
This workshop provides an introduction to cloud-native development with Node.js by walking you through how to extend an Express.js-based application to leverage cloud capabilities. The workshop will cover key concepts and technologies, including health checks, metrics, Docker, Kubernetes, Prometheus, and Grafana. In the end, you’ll have a fully functioning application running as a cluster in Kubernetes, with production monitoring.
In this session we'll do a quick overview of IBM's new cloud native hosting platform, IBM Cloud Code Engine, and take the cloud native Node.js app you built in the previous workshop and deploy it. (If you did not attend previous workshop, no problem!)
There are many ways to take your Cloud Native Node.js app to the cloud. In the previous session, we learned about IBM Code Engine. In this session, we will do a quick overview of the other deployment options, including: Free k8s cluster on IBM Cloud, the odo CLI client for OpenShift, the NodeShift client for OpenShift and more.
Learn how to use Node-RED to create a photo booth web app infused with AI through the use of TensorFlow.js The workshop will step through getting started with Node-RED, creating the web app and then containerizing it so it is ready to be deployed into the cloud or onto edge devices.
