A quick follow up on last post 

By Martin Jinoch | 8/26/16 9:04 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by

A lot of things happened since Monday morning. It turned out I was not at all alone in thinking this. So there are some other posts on the subject, much better than my rant. And most importantly you can find Ed Brill's comment under Darren's post.

Bye bye Domino! 

By Martin Jinoch | 8/22/16 9:34 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

First time I was planning to "abandon" Domino as my primary application platform around 2002, when I decided to switch to Java. A decision that has proven to be very wise during last 14 years.

Change Is In The Air 

By Jesse Gallagher | 8/26/16 4:12 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

During last week’s MWLUG, there was a clear sense that things are a little different this year. Dave Navarre dubbed the technical implications “platform agnosticism”, while I geared my presentation towards the feeling that change is in the air.

Communication and Community 

By Paul Withers | 7/30/16 4:26 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by

A couple of days ago I posted this tweet. It was prompted by experiences in a variety of technical communities over recent months and year, good and bad. Anyone who knows me or has been involved in the IBM Collaboration Solutions community will be aware of how passionately I believe in the power of community and the importance of empowering those within the community.

Getting Your Hands On Graphs 

By Nathan T. Freeman | 8/14/16 5:53 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Next week I will be in Austin, TX at MWLUG 2016. Red Pill Now is a platinum sponsor again this year, and I am fortunate to have been accepted to present a two-hour workshop on the GraphNSF technology from the OpenNTF Domino API. I’ve been working on the GraphNSF implementation for over 3 years now. It’s software that, for me, is as intensely personal as it is useful.

IBM Connections explained: Why a “Like” matters! 

By Femke Goedhart | 8/1/16 11:12 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by

I often get asked about things in IBM Connections that need some explaining. One of them is the value of using the Like button in IBM Connections and whether people really should use it in a corporate environment. Let me be clear: You should! But in stead of writing another blog on why I decided to do it a little different this time and try my luck on explaining it in a video. I hope this will help!

IBM Domino App Dev Hits the Headlines 

By Paul Withers | 8/25/16 6:57 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

IBM Domino has always been very active within Germany. So it’s no surprise that online IT journal Heise Online published an article summarising recent blog posts about the current state of application development for the IBM Domino platform. IBM have shown a commitment to the platform for mail, always quick to say that Verse is still IBM Domino at the backend and already providing a closed beta for the on premises version of Verse.

IBM Domino XPages SSJS Object Literal Primer 

By Chris Toohey | 8/12/16 12:10 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

I wanted to take a moment to cover a JavaScript technique that I've had great success lately. Lately meaning the past few years... and I think it's time to share.

IBM Notes Domino And XPages Strikes Back 

By John Oldenburger | 8/23/16 3:16 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

There has recently been a lot synisme, criticism and negativity about Notes Domino and XPages. If you believe the latest tweets and blog post it seems as if Notes Domino and XPages as an application platform is depreciated by the community and everyone is looking for alternatives.

By Bill Malchisky | 8/4/16 1:47 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by

Yesterday, IBM provided a preview call for select customers covering IBM Verse On-premises (VOP). Those in attendance were amongst the first to receive updated particulars on this product. I explicitly asked and received permission to provide this information. Here is a subset of relevant items discussed/presented.

I’m very pleased to say that i’ll be speaking at Icon UK being held in London from Sept 15th – 16th at IBM South Bank. The only user group event all year I get to travel to from home..

JSON RPC Service, Component Tree Manipulation and OpenLog 

By Paul Withers | 8/4/16 4:39 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

One of the parts of the XPages Extension Library I’ve not used extensively is a component under the Data Access category called Remote Service – the JSON RPC Service. This allows server-side code to be triggered from client-side JavaScript and return a string response.

MWLUG 2016 Slides 

By Jesse Gallagher | 8/20/16 7:15 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

I just returned from this year's MWLUG, held in surprisingly-rainy Austin, Texas. As every year, MWLUG is an outstanding event, particularly for a development crowd (though I think admins get tons of material too). I'm definitely looking forward to next year's in DC, and not merely because that's a pretty quick drive for me.

MWLUG Presentations & Wrap Up 

By Gabriella Davis | 8/22/16 4:22 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by

After serveral weeks travelling around the US doing work and visiting friends we ended up in Autin for MWLUG. Another great event organised by Richard Moy and the team with lots of great sessions including Scott Souder’s session on IBM Verse, more on Project Toscana and Ben Langhinrichs’ on Data Visualisation which is an area I’m working a lot in right now.

MWLUG Success and some thoughts on themes of the conference 

By Eric McCormick | 8/24/16 7:45 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by

MWLUG was a great success as far as I’m concerned. Each time I’ve gone I’ve had the great enjoyment of being able to attend some high quality sessions, meet with lots of colleagues and friends from the community, and get a view into products and solutions many people are undertaking, over conversations and interactions outside of the sessions.

MWLug 2016 Round-Up

So I’m back from my first mwlug jetlagged to hell and shattered, trying to answer the question that LDC Via always does after a paid conference “was it worth it”

My five cents on the Domino-and-its-future debate 

By Heiko Voigt | 8/26/16 2:04 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by

So, after posting a short rant on facebook and the reactions thereabout regarding the debate about the future of Domino, I feel that I have to express myself in a bit more details than the one-line-rant on facebook.

NodeJS posting data to Domino 

By Michael Brown | 8/13/16 6:29 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by

So recently, I was working on project that was not domino based, but rather used web tools and Rest APIs. What a breath of fresh air! SublimeText, NodeJS, EsLint and all that other webbie-type goodness, that looks great on your CV.

NotesIn9 192 : Intro to Graph Database in XPages 

By David Leedy | 8/12/16 11:47 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

In this show IBM Champion and all around amazing developer Oliver Busse returns with an EPIC demonstration where he talks about using Graph Databases inside the XPages/Domino world. I’m far from an expert on them but Graph Databases are what the “Big Boys” like Amazon, Twitter, LinkedIn, etc.. use to more effectively maintain data that relates to other data.

By David Leedy | 8/25/16 4:23 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

NotesIn9 196: No Dependency Page Controllers 

By David Leedy | 8/25/16 4:27 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

We’ve talked about using page controllers before on the show, but typically I’ve used an external library. Today I’ll show a way to get started with page controllers with no external dependency. I consider my move to page controllers as one of the best things I’ve ever done as an XPages Developer.

NotesIn9 197: Sending Alert Messages to an XPage 

By David Leedy | 8/25/16 4:31 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

This is the big one! The last demo of my presentation at MWLUG 2016. In this show I’ll demonstrate how you can use something called a “Bitmask” and combine it with some Java code and the Apache Poi project to allow the user to create a custom Excel spreadsheet.

NotesIn9 is “Hiring”. 

By David Leedy | 8/22/16 9:19 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

I’m looking to find someone to act as an “XPages Producer” for NotesIn9. This is a volunteer position. This person would actively recruit and work with contributors of XPages related content. This person does not have to produce their own demos but of course that interest and ability would be encouraged.

Pete Janzen: Lotus Legend 

By Peter Presnell | 8/14/16 5:54 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by

Many years ago I launched a web site called Lotus Legends that recognized the contributions made by many people inside and outside IBM to the Lotus Notes product. I retired the site after IBM announced its IBM Champions program. While both sought to provide recognition of the many contributions made by our community the two programs differed in three distinct ways

Quo vadis, IBM? 

By Oliver Busse | 8/23/16 3:20 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by

Hard times for us hardcore Domino developers. No IBM Domino release announced for 12 months on any conference or user group meetup. Extended support announcement for the current version (9.0.1) until 2019 (2017 +2 years). No major release for over 3 years. Above repeated for at least 4 user group events in this year.
