If developerWorks was a student returning to school this fall, she would have a lot of material to draw from when writing her “What I did this summer” essay. In the WebSphere and Business Process Management areas, we built two new pages this summer: developerWorks Middleware, and developerWorks Connect to Cloud!

developerWorks Middleware

First of all, developerWorks Middleware is a new developerWorks hub, combining the formerly separate developerWorks WebSphere and developerWorks Business Process Management zones. Go to the hub to learn about application development with IBM products like WebSphere Application Server, WebSphere Liberty, and IBM PureApplication, hybrid cloud integration with products like IBM API Connect, IBM DataPower, IBM Integration Bus, and IBM MQ. We also support process transformation with products like IBM Business Process Manager and IBM Operational Decision Manager.

On the Tutorials & training tab, you can find articles, tutorials, videos, courses, and learning paths.

On the Tools & code tab, you have access to related tools, services, trials, and downloads.

On the Communities tab, you can explore Developer Centers, upcoming events, forums, blogs, and links to social media channels.

developerWorks Connect to Cloud

The new developerWorks Connect to Cloud page provides learning paths to help you explore how to extend your enterprise apps to the cloud with the Connect series from IBM.

The Connect series from IBM is a series of new offerings that make it quick and easy for developers to capitalize on existing skills and applications and connect to and from the cloud with application programming interfaces (APIs).

IBM API Connect, an end-to-end API lifecycle management solution, is the foundation of the Connect series from IBM. Other offerings in the series are WebSphere Connect, Business Operations Connect, IBM Dataworks Connect, IBM z/OS Connect, IBM App Connect, and IBM DB2 Connect.

Go to developerWorks Connect to Cloud as your starting place for accessing resources about the Connect series from IBM, curated and organized by your level of experience and goals. More learning paths will be added, but you can start now by learning about APIs and how IBM API Connect can help you create, manage and secure them.

That’s what the developerWorks Middleware team was up to this summer. How about you? Have you tackled a challenge in connecting an enterprise app to and from a cloud environment? Have you found an innovative way to use APIs and services on IBM Bluemix to improve your applications? Do you have tips that you would like to share with other developers? Let us know! Submit a developerWorks proposal or email me.
