When I have to develop any kind of map, I always enjoy doing it using CartoDB. This joinned with my passion for tennis…. the result is this application:
In this tutorial I will show how to create a Node-Red application to connect sensors and push the data into Cloudant. Then, using Custom SPSS Nodes developed using R (RCouchDB) we will get the data and start mining it! Hope you enjoy and learn a lot with this tutorial.

It is been a very cool week. Always challenging with Israel companies, with very skilled and smart people innovating a lot. I’ve been part of two different event:
– 2 days introduction to IBM SPSS: We had around 20 attendees, and we showed integration of SPSS and Bluemix
– Bluemix Analytics event: 43 people registered to an event were I presented
- R and Bluemix
- SPSS and Bluemix
- Cognos and Bluemix
We build a very nice demo getting real time data from sensor and analyzing it in SPSS using custom nodes to connect directly SPSS and Cloudant.
Another very interesting fact of the IBM Innovation Center of Tel Aviv in the IBM Alpha Zone Accelerator for Startups, a very cool open space where companies can go an get free software, mentoring and all kind of support from IBM.
Some inspiring quotes you can see around the open space:
“Imagination is more important than knowledge.” Albert Einstein
“The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Alan Kay
“It is wonderful to be in on the creation of something, see it used, and then walk away and smile at it” Lady Bird Johnson
Cannot be happier today. After 9 months of hard work, presentations and very intense summer coding R with 4 super interns working hard, this week at the Extreme Blue Expo we finished 2nd in Europe over more than 25 projects. That’s the result of the passion and the ambition we all put in doing the best project possible.
We have to thank you as well to the IBM Business Partner Micropole for coming to IBM Ehningen to support the students and check the demos.
You remember a post where I was showing how to develop a Shiny application running R to do sentimental analysis ? Well, I wrote a DeveloperWorks article so now everybody will be able to start developing their analytic R applications very easily using Bluemix.

On Wednesday the IBM Extreme Blue team of IBM La Gaude is going to present in the Extreme Blue Expo in Germany the project about SPSS and Bluemix… more details coming soon! In the following post I wanted to present the members of the team of this year that did a fantastic work.
As I mentioned in previous post, I been leading a team of Extreme Blue the last three months of summer and this week the Extreme Blue European Expo 2014 is taking place in the IBM German Headquarters at Ehningen.
The Expo is the most important part of the 3 months internship program, where you show to everyone what you’ve been working on and how innovative and cool is the idea developed. All Extreme Blue teams, with their IBM mentors will be there, as well as clients, IBM Business Partners and other IBMers that want to get inspired by the solutions.
We expect more than 25 different new projects presented with crazy ideas, awesome presentations (not classic boring powerpoint!!!) and a lot of passion and ambition from the very talented students. I am sure most of the applications will have IBM Bluemix as platform. I will keep you posted about what’s new…exciting week ahead !
Last week took place the IFA 2014, the Consumers Electronics Unlimited, the world’s leading trade show for consumer electronics and home appliances. It took place in Berlin from September 05 to 10, 2014. The main product of the event were the smartwatches! Is it going to be the next big thing? Will see.. what it’s true is that all the big companies presented new models with an improved design…and next 9th of September Apple is probably going to show their own wearable. So the platform battle is going to happen…again! And as is happening with smartphones…here we will have a new platform battle. Nowadays most of the smartwatches are based on the fascinating OS of Google called Android Wear. In the last Google I/O, the details of the new operative system for wearables were presented, and there are more and more companies pushing for it.
In the following article I am going to show how to create an Android application that is using the Pushing Service of Bluemix to send notifications. These notifications are available not only for your smartphone, but also with your smartwatch powered by Android Wear. Even if you don’t have yet a smartwatch to play with, I will show how to install and connect an emulator to your phone to start testing. Let the fun begin!
