Bluemix Webinar: Deploying a Full Stack Node.js Application to IBM Bluemix

Check out this webinar to learn how to deploy a full stack Node.js application to IBM Bluemix and how to quickly and easily add a Cloudant service to your Bluemix application. The value of Cloudant, a NoSQL database as a service (DBaaS) that excels at data replication and sync, is that it makes data available to users non-stop with elastic scalability, high availability, and integrated security. Join Bradley Holt, Developer Advocate for Cloudant, as he explores the Bluemix application manifest, buildpacks, deploy scripts, the Procfile, and configuration of Bluemix applications.
