Speaking at IamLUG

I am very pleased to say that I was selected to co-speak in two sessions at IamLUG (co-speaking x2 means 1 session, right?).  I’ll be speaking with Troy Reimer on integrating XPages and collaborative tools like Connections, and with Julian Robichaux on our fast, but fun Tools for the Domino Developer.  Hope to see you there!

Don’t Roll Your Own, Integrate…Collaboration On the Ground and In the Clouds

Your users want to collaborate, so how do you provide that ability within your XPages applications without coding from scratch? Troy and Kathy will show you how to take advantage of existing collaboration capabilities and integrate them with your apps. They will begin with a simple integration of XPages and TeamRooms. Next they will demonstrate more complex integration, using XPages to surface data like files and activity streams from IBM Connections and SmartCloud Engage, using the IBM Connections API.

Opening the Toolbox: Tools for the Domino Developer

It’s always important to have the right tool for the job. You wouldn’t use a screwdriver to hammer in a nail. It might eventually work, but it would take a lot longer. Tradesmen like plumbers and electricians make it look easy, but sometimes it is because they have all of those specialized tools. Julian and Kathy will open up the toolbox and show you some of the tools available to make your job as a Domino Developer even easier. Even better, most of the tools are free! They’ll cover tools for agents, XPages, browsers, testing, ideas for building your own tools, and more. It’s like a home improvement show for developers!
