A New Era, A New Future, A New Domino 

By Gabriella Davis | 10/25/17 1:54 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

Some of you may have already seen the tweets out of HCL and the announcement from IBM on the new strategic partnership for ICS products that IBM have just entered into with HCL. To explain things as simply as possible this means that HCL will take over the development of most of the ICS products whilst IBM continues to manage the product strategy, marketing and licensing.

A Portal to a Portal: Installing IBM DB2 on Linux using IBM Installation Manager - Fun and Games 

By Dave Hay | 11/8/17 7:27 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by

I've installed DB2 a million (!) times over the past 17 years, since I joined what was then IBM Software Group. However, I've almost always installed it using the DB2 installation binaries and response files.

A Warning Tale for Presenters 

By Paul Withers | 11/1/17 9:26 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by

One of the aspects of Social Connections that I meant to include in my blog post summary but forgot was the issues around wifi access. No matter what a venue says about their readiness, it’s an aspect that I’m sure is virtually impossible for conference organisers to check or test beforehand.

Composing With Docker 

By Eric McCormick | 11/2/17 10:24 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by

About a year ago, I blogged on automating server upgrades with Docker and a BASH script. This met the needs I had at the time, and worked itself out to be pretty stable. But, since I think about such things and always question my preconceptions, I went down a path of creating a Docker compose config file, something I wouldn’t have had to create from scratch by waiting a little while as one appeared as an example from GitLab.

Creating Alexa Skills with OpenWhisk and IBM Watson 

By Niklas Heidloff | 11/16/17 4:43 AM | App Dev - Cognitive | Added by

My first code pattern (formerly known as developer journeys) has been published on developer.ibm.com/code. The pattern describes how to build Alexa skills with OpenWhisk. Rather than using intent and entity identification from Alexa, Watson Conversation is used. This allows developers to define conversation flows declaratively and developers can reuse conversations that are available in the Bot Asset Exchange.

Develop a Domino application using any modern tools 

By Philippe Riand | 11/13/17 1:26 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by

In my previous post, I talked about a ReactJS library of components that can be used to create Notes like UI. It allows developers to create modern web and mobile UIs in a flash. Fine but, if Domino Designer is a great tool for rapidly developing applications, it is unfortunately not designed to create such modern applications.
