ARMONK, NY: IBM launches developerWorks Recipes that helps developers to learn how to connect Internet of Things (IoT) devices to cloud and how to use data coming from other devices. It helps in systematic development of IoT application on IBM Bluemix and provides developer-focused and user-contributed recipes along with step-by-step tutorials that explain how to create IoT and Bluemix applications. One can take help from the recipes, modify them try their own version and share it with others on the same platform. Users can also access additional services offered by Bluemix like data storage, predictive modeling, and geospatial analytics to help them understand data on their devices and accelerate the IoT ecosystem.

"IBM has long been a leader in offering innovative tools for developers to create the applications of our future. Now, IBM is expanding that focus so anyone from the software novice to the experienced hardware engineer, can easily and quickly access materials providing guidance in the creation, management and connection of IoT devices to each other and the cloud," says Christopher O’Connor, General Manager, Offerings, Internet of Things, IBM.

Some of the features that developerWorks Recipes offer are understanding vehicle performance by analyzing data from its On-Board Diagnostic system, linking real-time machine condition monitoring with IBM asset management to monitor everything from the health of household appliances to wheels on a railroad car and spotting trends and obtaining solutions to common problems through graphical representation of historical and real-time data from IoT devices.
