Watson Assistant Outside US 

By Paul Withers | 4/16/18 1:12 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

Over the last few months I’ve been digging further into Watson Assistant (previously Watson Conversation). If you’ve watched my OpenNTF contributions, that’s apparent from the XPages library I put up there which wraps the Watson Developer Cloud Java SDK.

Following the blog posts and the demo, which took some time, I’ve finally created a video on my YouTube channel, which you can also access below. It’s quite a long video but that’s because I go through all that I’ve gone through in the blog posts and more.

Scheduling XPages Code - Part Six 

By Paul Withers | 4/4/18 2:06 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

So far we’ve covered using Node-RED triggering REST services which could be SmartNSF routes, XAgents or custom Java REST services in OSGi plugins – and indeed any REST endpoints, on Domino or beyond. Apart from re-using XPages code, there’s no real advantage so far over LotusScript or Java agents.

Scheduling XPages Code - Part Five

n the previous part we used a basic XAgent and a SmartNSF custom route to trigger Xots tasks. But both still required setting up a Xots task as a specific Java class. As long as all we’re wanting to do is process a REST service and send a basic response, there are more things we can do to make it even easier.

At IBM Think I presented four sessions. Two were on The IBM Champion and Community Day on Sunday. One was titled “Social Zero to Community Hero” with Tony Holder and Alex Ivanov, who was also announced as an IBM Lifetime Champion that afternoon. This detailed what a Champion is and the different paths a champion takes.

IBM Think Review 3 - Domino App Dev

I was fortunate enough to have a number of discussions with various people from IBM and HCL while I was at IBM Think. Some of those were with people I’ve known for a while, like Jason Gary and Barry Rosen, while others were with newer contacts like John Paganetti, Andrew Manby and the (quite new) marketing people.

IBM Think Review 2 - ICS Announcements (Excepting App Dev) 

By Paul Withers | 3/28/18 11:45 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

There were a host of announcements at IBM Think, some of which I may have missed. But I’ll cover all the ones I did catch here. I will leave Domino app dev for a separate blog post covering everything announced about V10 to date as well as my thoughts about what they mean to all kinds of Domino developers.

IBM Think Review 1: Non-Technical Observations 

By Paul Withers | 3/25/18 4:49 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

There will be a number of reviews of IBM Think from me, on various topics – gone are the days when there was a very tight narrow focus to my attendance at an IBM conference. But this first post is a review of some of the non-technical aspects of the conference.

Great Start to IBM Think 

By Paul Withers | 3/19/18 4:40 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

The IBM Champion and User Group day was a great start to IBM Think with some interesting sessions, although my morning was busy with delivering a session twice with Tony Holder and delivering a Lightning Talk. On behalf of OpenNTF we also launched open badges for user groups to thank them for their support of OpenNTF. More open badges will come in the future as we expand the programme further.
