This means you’ll (if you’re attending one of our Series events, which let’s face it, you should be) have the chance to use their Bluemix platform for your hack. And believe me, it’s something you’re gonna want to check out. It will BLOW. YOUR. MIND.

Want to do all the development, testing and deployment of your hack from one place? Yes, I thought so. That’s where Bluemix comes into play, being that it’s a single-solution environment and all.. They got all the languages you need (Ruby, PHP, Node.JS, Python and Liberty Java). Plus databases like Cloudant, SQl, mySQl or MongoDB.

There’s even wearable and IoT support! This is 2015 after all.

It’s flexible too. Real flexible.
