IBM is opening a new Bluemix Garage in Nice, France to help European based companies’ development and design of apps on IBM Cloud.
This is the fourth location worldwide (also located in San Francisco, Toronto, London) of the Bluemix Garage, which offer physical hubs where multi-disciplinary teams, including developers, product managers and designers, can collaborate with IBM representatives to work with new technologies using the IBM Cloud. The new location will add to the London Bluemix Garage’s support of Europe’s base of over 1.6 million developers.
The new Bluemix Garage is co-located within the European Business Innovation Center (BIC) of Nice Metropole, the region’s largest startup incubator. The Garage’s co-location with the BIC also houses it within the European Business Network, which is Europe’s largest startup incubator network comprised of over 10,000 startups.
The new Bluemix Garage location will help developers through:
