GitHub Enterprise is coming to Bluemix

Think of it as 'GitHub as a service' for corporate developers

GitHub's popular code-sharing service for developers has long been available in a self-hosted enterprise version, and now it's coming to IBM's Bluemix cloud platform.

Thanks to a new partnership announced Monday, IBM and GitHub will deliver GitHub Enterprise as a dedicated service on Bluemix across private and hybrid cloud environments. The service gives corporate developers a new way to code and work with GitHub’s collaborative development tools in a private, controlled environment.

"It's essentially GitHub as a service," said Jim Comfort, CTO and general manager for architecture with IBM Cloud.

GitHub Enterprise will be available as a service through IBM's security-minded Bluemix Dedicated and Bluemix Local versions. It will be integrated with Bluemix’s portfolio of DevOps tools, including access to more than 140 application programming interfaces (APIs) and services.

Integrated security-scanning technologies will help protect users from vulnerabilities that may arise during development, IBM said.

GitHub boasts roughly 12 million users, including some 60,000 organizations. IBM is the first vendor to make GitHub Enterprise a "natural part" of its developer services, Comfort said.

Pricing and availability details were not announced.

Also on Monday, IBM announced Bluemix OpenWhisk, a new event-driven platform that lets developers build microservices that execute software code in response to events such as the clicking of a mouse or the receipt of sensor data from a surveillance camera. OpenWhisk is now available.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
