Samples, SDKs and tutorials for services

Hi,

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.

    https://internal-ibmcloud.ideas.aha.io/ideas/IDEA-I-1787 is kinda related as a catalog of curated demos.

    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.

    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.

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