A short summary of today’s activities:
Certification Test Lab
After breakfast I thought taking an exam and upgrade my certification. The upgrade exam for Notes 8 had quiet some DB2 related questions and I havent used DXL export at all so without preparation or work experience the exam was not successfull
Brainstorm OpenNTF project
I met a few developers to discuss a possible kick-off for a new OpenNTF project. The project manager has as dead-line defined next month so you will probably hear from us =)
Questions from the audience for the experts. Great fun and great answers.
Ask the product managers
Ed Brill hosted this session. Questions from the audience for the PM’s. Great fun when the crowd did not appreciate avoiding answers from the PM. I wonder how request are being analyzed, for example the ROI of bringing Designer to the Mac and having a whole new potential of developer audience.
I hope some of the PM’s where attending the Ask the Developers session. There was a good question on monitoring IdeaJam.
Ask the developers
Questions from the audience for the developers. Quickr is dead, LotusScript is dead. Just focus on XPages and Java folks.
Odd that so little developers take a look at IdeaJam. Maybe you could gain a few bonuses by bringing up some highly rated ideas from IdeJam (steal with pride and improve) ?
The news that I heard from this session is that there are (dedicated) template developers. Maybe they could define and publish the product plans for several templates delivered via OpenNTF (blog template, wiki, discussion…).
So that was my Lotusphere 2011. Since I was infected on the plane by a German neighbour (thanks but no thanks) with a fever I spent most of my time after the session sleeping in bed.
In case I infected anyone else I am sorry but like me you will get over with it
