Over the last year, as my work on
(part of the Apache Cordova project) has wound way down,
folks have been asking me "What are you working on now?"
IBM has been involved in the Cloud Foundry project for a while now. I've been working on different aspects of using Cloud Foundry, almost all of them focused around deploying node.js applications to Cloud Foundry-based platforms.
And as of a few weeks ago, I've taken a new job at IBM that I call "Developer Advocate for BlueMix, focusing on node.js". Gotta word-smith that a bit. In this role, I'll continue to be able to work on different aspects of our BlueMix product and the open source Cloud Foundry project, using node.js, only this time, more in the open.
This is going to be fun.
I already have a package up at npm -
cf-env - which makes it a bit
easier to deal with your app's startup configuration. It's designed to work with
Cloud Foundry based platforms, so works with BlueMix, of course.
I've also aggregated some node.js and BlueMix information together into a little site, hosted on BlueMix:
I plan on working on node.js stuff relating to:
- things specifically for BlueMix
- things more generally for Cloud Foundry
- things more generally for using any PaaS
- things more generally for using node.js anywhere
I will be posting things specific to BlueMix on the BlueMix dev blog, and more general things on this blog.
If you'd like more information on using node.js on BlueMix or CloudFoundry, don't hesitate to get in touch with me. The easiest ways are @pmuellr on twitter, or email me at Patrick_Mueller@us.ibm.com.
Also, did you know that IBM builds it's own version of node.js ? I'm not currently contributing to this project, but I've known the folks that are working on it, for a long time. Like, from the Smalltalk days. :-)

I will add that most folks
have absolutely no need for
both Android and iOS have great
stories for web app debug.
Brian LeRoux has frequently stated,
one of the primary goals of Apache Cordova is to cease to exist.
weinre has nearly met that goal.
