First things first, sign up for Bluemix! What is Bluemix, you ask? It's IBM's simple and flexible cloud development platform. Whether you're looking to build a web app or a mobile backend in the cloud, Bluemix has you covered with a variety of runtimes (like Node.js, Python, Ruby on Rails, Java, etc...) and services (like Mobile Push, Cloudant, Twilio, MongoLab, etc...) that we're sure will fit your app's use case. Since this is a short event, a Bluemix 30-day free trial is well suited to anything you're looking to build for now - no up front credit card required either! Once everything is said and done (and you've won, right), you'll have an awesome app running on Bluemix and all the enterprise-grade tools at your disposal to take it to the next level.
