Kilpailun tehtävänanto

The Problem:

Running complex applications in multiple environments in IBM Cloud can be a daunting task. There are multiple dimensions that are difficult to visualize.

Users need to instantly identify what is running, the particular network or resource group it is running in and the specific cloud accounts being used.

This complexity makes onboarding new members to the team lengthy. It can take weeks for new members to finally understand the system they're working with. Manually documenting deployments is also inefficient, as its time consuming and quickly falls out of date.

What we need from you:

We need you to create a UI design and build a proof of concept of a web app that allows users to graphically visualize their IBM Cloud resources. Several visualizations should be designed (although only one needs to be implemented in the POC for this contest).

The objective is to design an application (deployed in a container) that can produce several graphical views of your IBM Cloud resources.

These views would include things like:

- Infrastructure (showing baremetal/virtual machines and how they are grouped into VPCs and connected to gateways etc)
- Kubernetes (showing pods and what incoming/outgoing calls are made to other services)
- Security (showing how resources use ServiceIDs and access groups, and are collected into resource groups)
- HA (showing how resources are distributed across data-centers/regions)
- Enterprise (showing account hierarchy and resource composition in each account)

Supporting details to include in the submission:

In addition to UI mockups, development notes, architecture diagrams, etc. the contest winner will deliver a proof of concept application that renders at least one view (and implements the navigation so that you can see how the final app would work).

Rendering a view will require querying IBM Cloud APIs to get the data and then render that data into an appropriate view.

Solution may leverage any number of open source projects (as long as they don't include a copyleft license).

Prizes:

The contest winner will receive $10k. The next two runners up will receive $2.5k.

The top 3 entries have the opportunity to bid on further high value projects working towards a complete implementation of this idea.

    Hello Arn,

    I am really interested in this project. I've developed my sample poc and have shared with you. If you can provide a potential feedback, that will definitely improve my concepts. I would like to work on rest of the project. I have shown you the sample views. I can contribute many creative elements with some good direction.

    Well I have many ideas, but I can't code, so I better learn how to manage, message and map that data first. Best of Luck to the participants, and cheers to IBM for their step up towards better user experience.

    Hey Team IBM,

    I was trying to submit the last moment but because of other formalities whereby I could not proceed with the submission due to incomplete freelancer.com profile, I was barred to proceed from submission.By the time I finished the formalities, the submission clock closed. I have designed, coded and also worked on the architecture diagram, which I hope you and team would appreciate. Is there any other way I could submit my entry?

    Regards
    Shad

    Good Luck! Thank you for the contest, it was a interesting learning experience and admittedly it's difficult to manage so much infrastructure and code in a cloud environment, coupled with multiple users and continuous delivery. I couldn't properly scope the work and execute the project and I can see the difficulties developers have to contend with.
    Once again, good luck to the freelancers and I hope there is a good service that can help managing that complexity in the future.

    Hi, Contest Holder. I hope you're doing great and keep healthy during this pandemic. I'm a UI/UX Designer and a JavaScript developer as well. I really got interest on your contest but kind of missing the detail from your description. What I want to ask is, are you expecting designs like a web panel interface with some details about users resources that we can get from the API, or some designs that visualize users resources into a graphical component context e.g. what component connected to what components? I kindly wait to your response. Thanks!

    Required rendering must be done from browser (or external service)? If browser - then cloud api must allows CORS but it does not. (not for requests with received token nor for receive the identity token itself). I suppose cors for api will not be enabled soon (if it will be ever) due to it requires at least a security team meeting. Currently it is not possible to access api from browser.

      You will need a web application in order to call the IBM Cloud APIs, they are not designed to be called from the browser.

    The Contest description is ambiguous. This contest is more of like,, for developers and those who understand cloud computing well. I think it should be 2 contests, one for just design and the second for web app development.

    Dear CH, Please make more clear,
    Once to approve UI design then all its should convert to develop code or not? Let us know.

      Once you have a design that looks good, please develop a very small part of the whole in order to prove that your design will work in practice.
