IBM XPages on Bluemix: Top Resources To Use IBM XPages on Bluemix The Best Possible Way

It has lately become a little quiet about IBM XPages on Bluemix. Until last week when IBM Champions David Leedy and Oliver Busse published a three part series on NotesIn9 about how to use IBM XPages on Bluemix. If you are getting started with IBM XPages on Bluemix or looking for more information about how to use IBM XPages on Bluemix then these NotesIn9 videos are an absolute must see.
Listed below I have tried to give a summary of the best resources, in my humble opinion, that are available at the moment to get started with IBM XPages on Bluemix. Included are the official documentation, recommended blog post and videos that will help you to use IBM XPages on Bluemix the best possible way. I have also included my own blog post. Perhaps these also contribute a little bit.
If you have additions than please let me know and I'll add it to the overview below.

Making Hybrid XPages Applications on Bluemix
This video describes how to create hybrid XPages applications in Bluemix. A hybrid application is defined in this context as a Bluemix cloud application that has its data hosted on an external private server. This video shows you how to configure an XPages Bluemix application to connect with a data NSF on an external Domino server. In the latest XPages runtime update, support was added for such hybrid applications, providing a powerful secure use case for XPages apps in Bluemix.
