HH Café – Edmonton

February 10, 2016 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Looking to explore development options for your next healthcare app (perhaps for the upcoming #HHYEG2016 hackathon), or curious about cognitive computing and how Watson can help tame Big Data?  Get up close and personal with experts from IBM to learn about Bluemix – a cloud Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is used for creating, managing and deploying applications on the cloud. Learn more about the Bluemix platform, followed by a short talk and Q&A session with Social Angel, the winning team from the Health+Promotion Innovation Challenge, on on their experiences using Bluemix to take their project to the next level!

Thinking of using Bluemix for your project? Come to the cafe to learn more – then if you’re interested, on Thursday, February 11th we’ll have a workshop where you can get hands-on, one-on-one experience with mentorship from IBM!
