IBM Connect Presentation Uploaded 

By Brad Balassaitis | 2/9/16 3:49 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

At Connect last week, I presented a session on using grids in XPages with Paul Calhoun. Here’s a link to the slide deck, AD-1207: The Grid, the Brad, and The Ugly: Using Grids to Improve Your Applications. Do you want better features, better performance, and a better UI in your XPages applications? Then display your data in grids instead of built-in controls.

Connect 2016 – A Wrap Up 

By Gabriella Davis | 2/8/16 10:29 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

As I get ready to leave Florida tomorrow I realise that I haven’t blogged since Connect began (for me) on Friday 29th. This was our 21st IBM Orlando conference and like everyone else I was prepared to see it go forever or merge with Las Vegas. That hasn’t happened and I hope after the last two years it won’t.

Time to dust off this blog and get back to it 

By Tim Clark | 2/8/16 6:09 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

It's been a while since I blogged about anything. Not really had much to say, but the world keeps turning and I've come around to the fact that, even though no-one is listening, I find is cathartic to write some of this stuff down.

IBM Connect 2016

I’m back from IBM Connect 2016. People want to know how it was. It’s hard to explain. I mean, it’s my blog, so I’m going to try, but I’m certain some of you won’t believe me because you weren’t there.

IBM Connect 2016 - Final Thoughts 

By Devin Olson | 2/8/16 9:23 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

Before I give you my thoughts about Connect 2016, I need to first provide a bit of a background. I have faithfully made the annual pilgrimage to Orlando every year since my first one back in 1998. I have been there for the highs and lows, representing 6 different employers (and several times just as myself). I have forged long-term SOLID friendships with people from all over the world. Lotusphere (and then Connect, then ConnectED, and now Connect again) has been a VERY important part of my life, and career, for 18 years.

Connect 2016 and Darwino 1.0 

By Jesse Gallagher | 2/8/16 8:48 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Last week was Connect 2016 and, while I don't have a full review of it, I felt that it was a pretty successful conference. The new venue was much less weird and more purpose-fitting than expected. Moreover, while the conference content wasn't bursting with announcements and in-depth technical dives like at something like WWDC, it did feel a bit more grounded and less marketing-hollow than the last two.

Thoughts on IBM Connect 2016 

By Steve Zavocki | 2/6/16 3:55 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Three days have passed since I returned home from IBM Connect in Orlando. This was my fourth ‘Sphere’ with my last being two years ago. This is my first time to attend as an IBM Champion! My overall impression was extremely positive. It certainly exceeded my expectations, and my expectations were pretty high.

My Session at IBM Connect 

By Paul Withers | 2/5/16 12:52 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Earlier this week I delivered my session at IBM Connect. It was good fun and thanks to all who attended. I’ve posted my slides, which are also available below. There are a couple of additions to the slide deck originally posted to the Event Connect site. As those at the session will remember, the session was highly driven by demos, so the slides summarise the points I made.

Lotusphere is dead, long live Lotusphere!

Concluding my twelfth visit to Orlando in January, sitting at the airport, and time to temporarily blow the cobwebs off this old blog once my and share my thoughts. It won't have escaped your attention that 2016 represented a significant change from all previous years. So let's have a little look at the changes, before…

Let's start with the big one. IBM Collaboration has a new General Manager. And she will make an impact. Look at her history within IBM and you will find that she buys stuff.

Woke up half past five in the morning. My internal clock is still not up to snuff. The humidity outside was unbelievable and there was so much fog that I opted for a 4 x 4 interval run on the thread mill instead of running around the lake.

Bringing Your Web Apps to IBM Digital Experience 

By John Head | 2/3/16 9:00 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Here are the session slides for the session I gave with Brad Balassaitis. For too long, WebSphere portal has been seen as the realm of the back end developer with specialized Java skills. This has been a barrier to entry to the IBM Domino community. IBM has transformed the product to the IBM Digital Experience platform – and it’s not just a name change!

Here are the session slides for the session I gave with Mat Newman at IBM Connect 2016. It's 2016 – your application portfolio is being reviewed and scrutinized. Email and application platforms are being separated. Users' expectations of their work experiences are higher than ever. But you're invested in your Notes & Domino applications – what do you do?

IBM Connect 2016 is in full swing and I’m enjoying the sessions I’ve attended, some of the news announced from some of the IBM talent that has presented, and even had a good time at my session. Thank you to everyone that came to my session; we had a decent turn out. The promise of an “amazing demo” was, I hope, mostly true.

Pause to breathe: a note from Lotusphere ’16 

By David Navarre | 2/1/16 3:12 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

I have to be honest. I never knew that I was an introvert. I was always puzzled by the times in my life when I was afraid of people or just wanted to go somewhere quiet. I love reading and my ‘alone time’ reading has always given me that … space.

Salesforce & IBM Connections Integration - Keeping Your Organization Connected

With so many solutions touting social capabilities out there and being used for different situations it can be daunting to decide on when to use what and why. Your organization might already have Salesforce, IBM Connections, Sharepoint and solutions like Jira that offer social capabilities but how do you get all these worlds together?

I’m at IBM Connect 2016 this week, and I was fascinated to watch the pre-event images pass across the screen identifying IBM Champions. These aren’t IBM employees but IBM advocates inside IBM customer companies.

We Build The Tools and The Tools Build Us 

By Paul Withers | 2/1/16 8:11 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

jason Silva spoke in the OGS at IBM Connect today about exponential growth and how the tools we have build have built us in return. That has certainly been the road for many of the Notes developers over the last five years. XPages was built and has built Notes developers into web developers.
