I’m here at the always great Collabsphere 2018 conference. The first day has been very good and I’m looking forward to the OGS tomorrow and many other technical sessions. Lots of new things coming out it seems.
If you happen to be at the conference, wether we’ve previously met or not, please find me and say hello. It is a “Social” conference after all. 🙂
In this show the amazing John Jardin returns with great information on how to get attachments sent to 3rd parties.
Since integration with other systems is becoming more and more critical you certainly want to be thinking about this.
It’s a game all about spreading the joy of the season. The concept is simple. If you see someone bringing home a Christmas Tree you yell “TREE!” and then count it and see how many you and/or your family/team gets by the end of the season. The more trees we spot the more joy gets spread.
Go to the website, Create your team, Read the rules and start spotting trees!!!
Game starts tomorrow morning and runs till Christmas day.
In this episode, OpenNTF Board Member and long time IBM Champion, Paul Withers returns with a great show on how to get starting building REST Servlets inside an EXTERNAL Library. This is a longer show as getting started with Libraries is a little involved but believe me it’s so worth it. Just like you take advantage of the Extension Library you can now make your own custom library.
In this show Eric McCormick returns to talk about ways in which Automation can help you. While this is not needed for basic XPages development if you want to level up on your skills be sure to check this episode out!
Eric has some further information about this show on his blog. Check it out!
I’m so excited about this show. After years of negotiations and down right harassment I’ve finally convinced/tricked Bruce Elgort to come on the show and share some if his knowledge. In this show Bruce will give us a great demo on building a skill for Amazon Alexa. If you’re not familiar with Alexa, it’s similar to Siri and “Ok Google”, in that it’s a voice based service. I think these voice services are going to only get bigger and bigger as time goes on.
There’s also a little discussion on an important blog series not to be missed for the Domino Developer as well as a note of congratulations to Julian Robichaux for being named a lifetime IBM Champion. Congrats Julian!!!
Declan Lynch is famous for his legendary 54 part series on “Learning XPages”. This was back in the day when there was no good info on XPages. His series did not just pre-date NotesIn9, it was one of the inspirations of NotesIn9.
Anyway – after a LONG hiatus Declan is finally blogging again. Our company is moving away from Domino and XPages. So he’s starting a to blog on what that really means for application development. What do you replace Domino with and why? What options did he explore and what did he choose to use.
Regardless of what IBM announces for App Development at the Connect conference in a couple weeks. These posts should be required reading for the Domino/XPages developer.

One of the many legendary things from the conference once called “Lotusphere” was the “Pretzel Cookie” that was provided in the box lunch on the last day.
If, like me, you’re not able to go to the conference this year but don’t want to miss out on the famous cookie I present to you 2 options.
The first is this recipe from John Rolings blog :
My wife has made these before and I can attest it to be a pretty good representation.
But what if you want the real thing? Did you know you can order the cookie yourself? Yep it’s not some special Disney recipe at all. It’s from a Bakery called Silverland Bakery.
