New & updated dev centers!

We have launched and updated a few of our developerWorks dev centers this month:

  • NEW – IBM developerWorks India: A community for developers and IT professionals in India. With a primary focus on Watson, IoT, Cognitive, AI, Mobile, and Blockchain, dW India curates content and announcements of importance to key Indian audiences: startups, students, and enterprise developers. And, to address the needs of developers too busy to routinely visit our site, the dW India newsletter (coming in May) will push new content and announcements to subscribers on a monthly basis.
  • NEW – IBM Cloud for Financial Services: Join the FinTech revolution and build the future of financial services with help from IBM Watson! This Dev Center features resources that can help you leverage the power of APIs and a data exchange to bring new apps to market faster.
  • NEW – IBM Cloud Product Insights Technical Community: Connect deployed IBM product instances with the IBM Cloud Product Insights service on Bluemix to take advantage of multi-product dashboards that reflect installed instances and usage metrics, and learn about the benefits of additional Bluemix services.
  • UPDATED – IBM developerWorks Hadoop developer center: We posted several new developer-to-developer technical blog entries this month around how to use open source technology. From Ambari Hive to Solr to YARN to Apache Kafka and more: this is a really nice collection of developer resources.
