Samples, SDKs and tutorials for services


I think it is crucial for Bluemix success that for each service there will be SDK + working sample + tutorial for the main programming languages (at least Java, Node.js and PHP).
For example I needed to connect from Node.js to the Object Storage service. There is just a link to OpenStack SDKs and API and it was not too helpful. It took me several days until I succeed to make it work and it was difficult. It should not be like that.
REST API description is not enough.

    Agree! Even the Push Service's documentation and samples are lacking.

    I fully agree, it's too complex. Some days ago I already mentioned this. I don't want to become an all-detail specialist in any of these great Bluemix services, because it's simply too much. GIT might be a great tool, but its way too complex and not necessary!

    So, why not having a simple to use API available - all the same for any of the provided environments. This could be so easy and would provide a great, great value for the application developers.

    I agree, but would also like to add that .NET Core (at least C# support) should be included in the list since it is also an IBM provided runtime in Bluemix.
