All the IBM Bluemix a developer could wish for, with bonus access to GitHub with new cloud developer subscription model from IBM

IBM will provide unlimited access to its cloud tools and resources to developers who pay up for developerWorks Premium – a subscription model based on access to IBM’s cloud portfolio.

The new subscription program, based on the regular and free developerWorks platform can take developers a “step further”, according to the company.

“We asked our developer community what tools they wanted and needed, and we created a compelling premium version of developerWorks based on their feedback,” said Sandy Carter, general manager of cloud ecosystem at IBM.

Premium resources

ibm“We have created a roadmap of premium resources for developers of all levels to grow their skills, build next-gen apps and connect with the IBM ecosystem. We want to encourage developers and innovation at IBM.”

The premium option allows developers to tap into tools such the Bluemix Platform-as-a-Service, as well as full access to GitHub’s code repository.

“One of the many resources included within developerWorks Premium is GitHub, a community where more than 11 million people build software together,” said IBM in a statement. “Now a part of the developerWorks Premium offering, the developerWorks community will be able to discover, fork and contribute to the over 29 million existing projects on GitHub, as well as create new projects.”

Also included is a year of access to the SoftLayer IaaS platform, and discounts to IBM and partner developer events.
