After a year or so offline due to changes in circumstances, Darren and I are delighted to share that all the This Week in Lotus archives are coming back online via a brand new WordPress-based site.

So far, 30+ of the episodes and their show notes are available and, all being well, the rest will be online by the start of next week, to be followed by the original comment threads.

We regularly get requests from loyal listeners to make the old shows available, and it’s been regrettable that they’ve been offline for so long. I certainly feel as though the shows themselves, the topics we discussed and the memories we shared over those two and a half full-on years between May 2010 and January 2013 are part of the long and winding heritage of Lotus, and it’s important that they remain online.

So, we both hope you enjoy looking and listening back through the archives as much as we do!

Recorded on Wednesday 4th April 2012.  Mat Newman joins us to review AusLUG 2012, and to discuss how we can reach those Lotus and ICS advocates and users that are not part of the community today.

Hosts

Stuart McIntyre (blog | twitter | company) & Darren Duke (blog | twitter | company)

Guests

Mat Newman (blog | twitter | company) is the Director of Education for ISW, an IBM Premier business partner in Australia, who recently won both IBM ICS and IBM Websphere ANZ Business partner of the year awards.  ISW are also the folks behind WildFire! and Kudos Badges.  An IBM Notes user since 1992, Mat is an IBM Champion for Collaboration Solutions, owner of the coolest YELLOW suit around, who by day educates Users, Administrators and Developers on IBM Software and spends his spare time keeping a bunch of people amused while they organise AusLUG.

Topics

AUSLUG is done

  • Was it easier or harder 2nd time around?
  • Biggest LUG in the world? (350 registrations)

So why do you do it?

  • the team behind AusLUG: Adrian Randall, Barry Sanders, John Stockbridge, Karen Hooper, Michael Little, Scott Beattie, Steve Hooper, Terry Boyd and Tony McPhail are all very single minded in this: We want to reach out to as many people as possible and provide an excellent opportunity for them to improve their skills and gain a better understanding of the technology they work with.
  • What’s this about the ‘bubble’?
  • Is our world really as small as 300 bloggers and maybe 1000 readers?
  • So how do we reach those outside the bubble?
  • Are LUGs the primary route, or are online activities like LinkedIn groups, Connections communities, Greenhouse, Facebook, Twitter etc as important?
  • Is the community still Notes/Domino focused, or are products like Connections and Quickr becoming more key?
  • How do we get more ‘outsiders’to have and use their voices?

Where do you go for AusLUG 2013?

Tips

Darren:

  • Right double click in iNotes closes the current tab. At least in 8.5.3…..

Mat:

  • Sametime clients for mobile devices – check out QuipIM?

Stuart:

[The XXX Episode – That’s XWork, XPages contest and xpages.info, hope that still proves arousing 😉]

Guests

Mike McGarel

Mike McGarel (blog | Twitter) , As a Collaborative Solutions Developer for Czarnowski Display Services, “XPages marks the spot”in my career right now. All of our new development efforts have been XPages-focused for over a year.  I am Vice President of GRANITE, the Chicago-based ICS user group. I also help out with various community get-togethers such as the Blogger Open at Lotusphere and the annual Midwest Lotus User Group conference.

Topics

XWork Server Update – TNG

  • Ed asks what next for the newest member of the Domino family
  • “Social Business Databases”?
  • ISV chicken and the egg issues?
  • “. . . awareness is lower than we expected at this point in time.”Proof that it needs its own marketing campaign?

Third OpenNTF Development Content

  • Two categories (Controls and Applications). Each category will have 2 winners. The Control category winners will receive $800.00 each, the Application category winners will receive $1600.00 each. The winners can choose between Amazon vouchers or payment via Paypal.

“New look”of http://xpages.info

  • Fantastic work by Bruce and the team

Connections Community Documentation

iPad Fever

  • Stresses the need to get up to speed on mobile development. If you’re company is still thinking about mobilizing your apps, it time to stop thinking and start doing.

Mike:

  • In the grand tradition of developers stealing borrowing from one other, I saw this site mentioned within a Planet Lotus blog post from Mark Roden: http://jsbeautifier.org/. It makes JavaScript code more readable by adding indents and line breaks.

Stuart:

  • Chrome with IBM Connections Files issue workaround. Great job, Sjaak!

Femke:

  • www.yoono.com great social stream tool to have as a desktop app but for me most particular to have in the sidebar of my browser (Firefox/Chrome). Handles FB, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google Talk, MySpace, etc, etc. Even allows you to check in with 4square and do multi updates to all of those in one go if you want.

Sharon:

Stuart:

  • Time has come for all laptops/desktops to have mirrored disks, sick of recovering dead/corrupted drives.  DiskWarrior is worth its weight in gold 😉  Also AppleJack – install on every Mac *before* you have a problem.

Topics

xpages portable command guideThe XPages Portable Command Guide

  • (Amazon US Paperback | Amazon US Kindle | Amazon UK Paperback | Amazon UK Kindle)
  • Follow on to the magnificent Mastering XPages
  • How did Maire and Dan get involved?
  • What does it cover?
  • Do you get stopped in corridors?
  • If one was new to XPages, would you still read ‘Mastering Xpages’first?
  • Who is it for?
  • Available in what formats?
  • Does it cover the extension library as well?
    • No, but new book coming from Paul Hannan, Tim Tripcony, Paul Withers et al in April

Meet the Authors video:

  • How did this come about?
  • Do you think it will help sales of the book?

Where are we with XPages?

  • Has it now completely replaced ‘classic’development techniques?
  • Are we seeing some leading-edge apps written with it yet?
  • What is IBM developing in XPages internally? Any great use cases you can share?
  • How do you feel about the vitality around XPages now that it’s a toddler 😉

Andrew Pollack’s “Delving into XPages”post

  • Lots of comments
  • Is he right? Is documentation inside of the product lacking?

From the TweetBag:

  • From Steve Pitcher, “What does the major lack of Quickr sesions at LS12 indicate?”
  • From Keith Brooks, “If not yellow, which color will ICS be?”

Tips

Darren:

  • Watch out when deploying Symantec Endpoint Protection with Notes preloader in 8.5.2 and later. It seems to be SEP 11.0.7 and higher but don’t take my word on that. Basically it crashes Notes at log on and the only fix (so far) is here. So far the issue seems random (not all PC’s are affected), but YMMV.

Martin:

  • Get on OpenNTF.org and try our latest stuff as a habit – whenever you can. Give us early feedback, and contribute where you can …it’s a great chance to influence XPages futures!
