As part of my developer advocacy efforts at IBM, I often build and share demos to showcase our products and how developers can integrate them into their own applications.
The IBM Developer site provides a wealth of resources for developers with a focus on code, content, and community. And code patterns are our way of providing full solutions to common problems that developers regularly face in their work. These code patterns “leverage multiple technologies to solve issues that our developer advocates have recognized as common use cases across multiple industries.”
I recently finished a new code pattern that shows how to create a cross-platform mobile application using React Native framework.
If you’re unfamiliar with the service, IBM Watson Discovery is a cognitive search and content analytics engine for applications to identify patterns, trends, and actionable insights. Using Discovery, developers can extract meta-data from returned content such as concepts, keywords, and sentiment using natural language understanding. Watson Discovery News is an indexed dataset that is pre-enriched with natural language processing (NLP) features such as keywords, entities, semantic roles, sentiment, relations, and category classification. So instead of using two products (Watson Discovery and Natural Language Understanding), a developer can make a single API to get combined results.
You can find the full repo on Github here. If you use this as a starting point for your application, please let me know!
