MobileFirst Foundation 8.0 Developer Labs


The recommended way to setup your workstation for these labs is to download the prepared VMware image that has all required software installed and ready to be used. However, if you want to do this on your own you will need to setup the dependencies listed below.

If you will be using ubuntu-based x64 distro, additional packages are required: lib32z1, lib32ncurses5, lib32bz2-1.0, and lib32stdc++6.
Finally, do not forget to set JAVA_HOME, ANDROID_HOME, MAVEN_HOME and M2_HOME and add them to your PATH.

Alternatively to watching labs on YouTube, you can download offline version from Dropbox or OneDrive. The videos are located inside the "labs_en" folder and have "webm" extension. VLC, same as most of media players and browser will be able to play them.

Inclusive terminology note: The Mobile First Platform team is making changes to support the IBM® initiative to replace racially biased and other discriminatory language in our code and content with more inclusive language. While IBM values the use of inclusive language, terms that are outside of IBM's direct influence are sometimes required for the sake of maintaining user understanding. As other industry leaders join IBM in embracing the use of inclusive language, IBM will continue to update the documentation to reflect those changes.
