    Thank you, Ralph! Your code and articles are so valuable for learning and working with the RTC API. I wanted to sign up and see if there was anyway I could help and by doing so learn more about the API but from what I can tell, DevOps BlueMix is a paid service. Am I missing the secret decoder ring or would I need to buy BlueMix before being able to interact properly with DevOps BlueMix?

      Andy, the code is – currently – in an RTC SCM repository (version 5.0.2) on Bluemix Dev Ops Services. To access the code open the project and request access – I will grant it. The code is also attached here. The access to the data/repository is free.

      I have talked to other companies that heavily use my code and maybe they will bring it over to some other repository. I could not give in and put it in some GIT repo – sorry, I am an RTC Guy 8)

      I simply don’t have the bandwidth to maintain and test all this. I will try to integrate some changes from other colleagues if I can and then I hope others take over and create a community around it.

      PS: as a benefit, a lot more example code is in several components in that repository.
