IBM has released a preview of Developer Technology Sandbox, a pre-built turnkey solution that can be used to test drive software. The aim of the sandbox is to showcase the way IBM software can be used to create applications.

Discussing the sandbox, IBM's Peter Gollmar and Aditya Banerjee said:

"As a developer, you need to be able to try and test new software and tools, but the process can be tedious. You often need to download the source code and reconfigure your entire local environment to deploy it. The process is a bit like being asked to assemble a car before giving it a test drive."


This is the driving force behind the development of the sandbox. IBM says the pre-built applications come with step-by-step instructions on how to run them with the click of a button. These applications are built on a combination of various IBM and IBM partner technologies, including APIs and cloud services.

The browser-based tool includes guided tutorials showing how to modify and build on top of the sample applications. There's also Github integration to export the code.

The sandbox includes nine applications use technologies including machine learning tools and AI models. Each application is designed to show off at least one of IBM's tools, so there's a video insights app that uses Watson Speech-to-text and Watson Natural Language Processing to extract insights from video files. A risk predictor for bank loans uses Watson Machine Learning on Cloud Pak for Data to predict risks involved when approving a loan application.

An "Agro Smart Assistant" uses Watson Assistant and Watson Machine Learning on Cloud Pak for Data to automate crop recommendations, and an Anomaly Detector uses the Anomaly Detection early access offering from IBM Research to identify data points, events, and observations that deviate from a dataset’s normal behavior.

The Sandbox is available to try now on IBM's Developer website.
