Lotusphere 2011 – Bildr demonstrated at BP207

Niklas Heidloff emailed me before LS2011 that he would demonstrate Bildr during the session BP207 Apps, Apps, and More Apps: Meet the Very Best Open Source Apps from OpenNTF.

Unfortunately I had a conflict in my agenda so I did not attend the session and missed the reactions from the crowd. I received some reactions from people who did attend the session and I believe people were happy with the contribution to OpenNTF (which makes me happy).

So I would like to thank Niklas for the exposure and I noticed that the number of downloads has increased rapidly after the session.

Anyway, during some XPages sessions the feeling rose that I have to rewrite the application and build in some better design principles in the app. The project started as a learning project for me so now after a couple of XPages apps, XPages sessions and having the Mastering XPages book waiting for me at home I guess the time is here to make the app rock-solid plus add some new features in it.

I just wonder if anyone would find it a problem using the extension libary?

Lotusphere 2011 – Day X

So many Xpages sessions throughout LS2011 so I guess you  can call each day day X…

XPages 101 How to build a simple XPages application

Very ambitious of the presenters to ram through a large number of slides (which they failed). Although the application was simple I learned some tips.

BP206 Working with Feeds

I must say that this was one of the best presentations I have seen on LS2011. Although the XPages factor was not touched in this session Julian Robichaux had interesting content in his presentation. Also they way he presented was more professional that the average speaker.

AD113 How your Xpages in Style

Maybe I made a mistake but I had the idea that good design principles (hopefully related to oneUI) were gonna be explained but the session was about CSS for beginners. One of the rare sessions I walked away from.

AD116 XPages extension library – Making development even easier

I had no idea why the presenters were presenting but they obviously were non at all interested in their audience. It was more mumbling and making jokes to each other that actually holding a presentation.

INV107 Application Development Strategy

It was great to hear that IBM positions Notes/Domino as the RADD platform for developing collaborative workflow solutions. Where Domino stood in IBM’s software portfolio has been unclear for a while but this presentation took that away.

Philippe Riand also entered the stage and things were good. The social collaboration toolkit was explained and what that would mean for all IBM’s development platforms.

On the audience question when Domino Designer (applause from the crowd) is gonna be available for the script kiddies on Mac he did not dare to answer…
