Bring your laptop and join our 2017 miXin seminars. You will be guided to create your first Bluemix project and to see it online in just hours.

Bluemix allows developers reduce the application development time by focusing on coding, rather than on environment setup and deployment. You don't have to worry about programming language, servers or database setup but find the solution which best meets your needs. You can take advantage of the large number of services APIs and software development kits that can quickly and easily be incorporated with Bluemix applications. Most of the services have free plans, so you can create lots of projects without paying one cent!
