create a Watson personal assistant to help us with everything within bluemix

I love Watson and so do all people, Watson is going to change the way we look at things, but first, people need to get to know Watson.
I say, integrate a smart Watson assistant within blue mix, it could answer any question e.g. which file can I use to change the settings of my application? or hi how are you? or how do I start a new Java project?
with Watson's dialog and verbal capabilities this is possible I believe or hope. And it would just be brilliant to talk to someone as smart as Watson, it could become your best friend xD

    We are in the process of defining a clear "getting started" experience in the platform. Expect more from us on this soon!

    Today our personalization work across the platform is designed to deliver the same set of user benefits, giving helpful context to support them in their platform workflow. This sort of personal assistance is being delivered in context. Closing this idea.

    Thank you for the idea - it is a valid requirement that would improve the Bluemix experience. We are currently looking at some improvements in the getting started experience that will address the experience gaps. We can not commit to integrating a Watson assistant in the experience but we'll keep it in mind for future iterations.

    Great idea. Easy way to showcase Watson while at the same time improving end user/developer experience. In addition to the above why not use Watson to help on any of the internal searches, knowledgebase integration, etc. I would make it optional to use and then everyone could compare manual approach vs Watson assisted. If you provided some information on the type of application you were trying to build I could see Watson easily finding relevant examples for you, snipets of code or making suggestions on relevant services that you may want to include. Watson Assisted Software Development. Now that would be a whole new twist on agile.
