IBM Connections Social Cloud is an innovative set of collaboration services combined with social networking capabilities. Connections provides APIs so that developers can use these services to extend their own apps to find relevant and recent information via a social graph and features like comments, likes, tags and more. IBM Bluemix is a platform for composing and running virtually any application in the cloud without having to worry about the hardware, software, and networking needed to do so. This means that developers can be left to do what they do best … CODE! Attend this session to learn how to leverage social services in your own apps and how to deploy these apps to Bluemix.
