Lotusphere – Day 1

Here is a summary of my experiences on day 1:

OGS

This or this as opener?

I guess I share similar feelings with others on this one. Although Notes Next looked pretty awesome in the demos! I just wonder if ‘older’ users can choose a ‘simple’ version in their preferences?

I kinda liked the theme choice even when it is not techie.

AD101 IBM Lotus Domino Designer – Today and tomorrow

Most of the new features were already known and no big announcement for tomorrow so a bit ‘modest’ (the work done is nevertheless highly appreciated).

AD110 Building XPages by the book

I visited this session in the hope to be able to go through the 800+ pages a bit more effective.

The book looks promising and I guess I have to read it from the beginning till the end.

Actually kinda cool to applause to Philippe Riand, chief architect of XPages!

Discussion: Integration points between Domino and Connections/SharePoint?

With some days out of office due to some family extension I am a bit low profile on anything in the Yellowsphere.

So with a mini-me in one hand and the laptop in the other I try to seeĀ  stuff more in reflection. One thing that affects my future is the discussion and choice of a social platform.

I never have had a good feeling about (or received the request to investigate) the following question:

What are the integration points between Domino and Connections/SharePoint? Which platform has the most or best advantages for existing ‘Notes’ customers?
