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 | Business - Social Business | 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 

By Kathy Brown | 2/8/16 5:01 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

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 | Business - Social Business | 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 | App Dev - XPages | 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! 

By Julian Woodward | 2/4/16 6:16 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

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…

Network World’s Bob Brown published an article entitled “In Search of Verse” where he talks about Verse and Toscana. It’s a nice summary and worth a read.

A few thoughts on IBM Connect, formerly known as Lotusphere 

By Volker Weber | 2/4/16 11:32 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

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.

Connect 2016 Day 3: Future of Domino, Connections and Hogsmeade 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 2/3/16 5:19 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

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.

IBM Verse: Next Impressions 

By Red Pill Now | 2/3/16 4:45 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

While IBM didn’t say it, I couldn’t help but think that IBM Verse is in the process of being totally integrated into Connections, to the point in which I am not sure if it would make any sense to try and identify (or use) it as a separate product. It would be hard to have Connections without Verse,

Bringing Your Web Apps to IBM Digital Experience 

By John Head | 2/3/16 9:00 AM | App Dev - XPages | 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!

By John Head | 2/3/16 8:57 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by John Oldenburger

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 Project Toscana – Collaborative thoughts… 

By Reynout van Adrichem Boogaert | 2/2/16 7:02 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Yesterday I watched the live stream of the Opening General Session of IBM Connect (at ibmgo.com/connect). It was great to see my many familiar faces on stage presenting. On of the new thing that was announced was IBM Project Toscana…. wondering what catchy name will be found as I will Toscana you just too much a mouth full. But the question is off course where does it come from.

Moving IBM Connections databases to another disk 

By Kenio Carvalho | 2/2/16 5:32 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

On my connections test server i installed everything in one machine. The home directory for db2inst1 user ends the file space. The databases and all containers are under the default of /home/db2inst1. So we can use db2relocatedb to move them.
