IBM DeveloperConnect, Bangalore reflects the spiking interests in cognitive computing

Start. Code. Push replaced the usual ready, set, go in the cognitive computing era and it was the key words at the just concluded IBM DeveloperConnect which saw overwhelming numbers of developers gathered for a day of sharing, learning, skill building, and hands-on experimentation with IBM Cloud technologies in emerging areas like artificial intelligence, Internet of Things (IoT), Blockchain, mobile, and cognitive systems, among others. More developers and students across India where hooked to the event virtually via livestream.


Key highlights of the news include: a collaboration with Coursera to strengthen developers’ skills in India with new courses focused on cloud and IoT; developerWorks Career Concierge, a cognitive learning tool that delivers personalized resources to advance developers’ skills; the general availability of GitHub Enterprise on Bluemix Dedicated, the first collaborative coding platform delivered as a managed service and; new cloud tools for Swift and Watson designed for mobile development and cognitive apps.


To summarize the event, while the event provided stimuli with healthy interactions with peers, lead talks on various computing topics, and showcasing of interesting projects by the developers, the event also introduced new toolkits for developers.

“The world will be re-written in code and much of it will be done right here in India,” said Vanitha Narayanan, managing director, IBM India Private Limited. “Developers are an integral part of a new India that is underpinned by digital transformation. IBM’s leading capabilities in Watson, IoT, cloud, mobile and blockchain will help developers innovate and succeed. At IBM, we are committed to investing in this ecosystem and will continue to collaborate with developers for a progressive India.”
According to Evans Data Corp., the total worldwide developer population will exceed 25 million by 2020, with India expected to become the world’s largest developer ecosystem by 2018. With initiatives like this and connecting with developers, IBM is taking a big lead to get the developers embrace their tools, which could make the two-way partnership an win-win situation.
