Lab 1 overview

This lab shows you now to launch your own instance Node-RED by using the IBM Bluemix boilerplate. You can deploy Node-RED as a stand-alone application, or flow, but using the Bluemix platform as a service means that you don’t need to worry about installing Node-RED prerequisites.

Prerequisites
You need an IBM Bluemix account.

Important: You can use only 12 free services in IBM Bluemix. In this course, you will need 6 services. If you already have a Bluemix account, be sure you are not using more than 6 services.

In these labs, you use the following services:

  • Language Translator
  • Tone Analyzer
  • Conversation
  • Speech to Text
