Synergy with the Sessions
Ben Langhinrichs    

Perhaps not as exciting as Dancing with the Stars, but guaranteed to have less Bristol Palin, the Additional Resources tab generates some fascinating results.  While you are hardly going to be surprised to see the (very popular and highly anticipated) Mastering XPages: A Step-by-Step Guide to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language showing under the session AD111 Developing Mobile Apps Rapidly for Webkit Browsers Using XPages, you might be surprised to see John Wargo's very useful  BlackBerry Development Fundamentals or a couple of TLCC remote learning courses that might prove handy if you want to learn more or share XPage development training with colleagues who couldn't make it to Lotusphere.




In case you think my personal interest in development has skewed things, there are also interesting finds in places like SHOW202 Enterprise 2.0 Hero: A Beginner’s Guide to Installing IBM Lotus Connections 3.0, where along with the more predictable IBM Lotus Connections 2.5: Planning and Implementing Social Software for Your Enterprise and Understanding DB2(R): Learning Visually with Examples (2nd Edition), you also have the intriguing book, Web 2.0 and Social Networking for the Enterprise: Guidelines and Examples for Implementation and Management Within Your Organization.  It is so much fun, I am a bit tempted to shift this to the first tab so that people will see it more readily.

What if we promoted software like Buzzfeed?
Thu, Aug 21st 2014 6:52a   Ben Langhinrichs
At Genii Software, we usually promote our products using simple videos or straightforward blog posts. But it occurred to me, what if we promoted software like Buzzfeed? So, let's see what it might look like. 6 Questions You Didn't Know To Ask About Genii Software's Products 1. How many Notes developers does it take to export your whole database to CSV using Midas? 2) What will your customer do if you send a printed catalog instead of an eBook he can read on his tablet?

The very opposite of YAGNI - more like IYBITWCE
Wed, Aug 20th 2014 10:20a   Ben Langhinrichs
There is a philosophy called YAGNI that many software developers and programmers will recognize. The acronym stands for You Aren't Gonna Need It, and it has been popularized along with the ideas of extreme programming and continuous refactoring. It probably even helps a lot of developers and teams, but at Genii Software, we go the opposite direction. A good part of what we build is not currently necessary, is purely speculative or is sufficiently far ahead of what customers want that it could b [read] Keywords: domino lsx notes application archive development email iphone mobile outlook xml

Demo: Preventing data loss in IBM Notes-Domino email
Tue, Aug 19th 2014 9:40a   Ben Langhinrichs
The high fidelity email rendering provided by CoexLinks Fidelity 3.6 is often viewed as primarily about appearance, but it is also about preserving data integrity. This demo shows a number of examples where actual data loss occurs when certain elements are sent via email and rendered by either the IBM Notes 9.0.1 client or the IBM Domino 9.0.1 server. (None of these data losses started in 9.0.1 - earlier versions were even worse). Problems shown have all been reported by Genii Software customers [read] Keywords: domino ibm notes rich text email server

I was very interested to read Paul Withers' article, 10 Reasons All Companies Should Use Open Source. I agree with many of its points, but wanted to bring up one caveat that seems too often ignored. If I might throw some caution on his first point, 1. Good Developers Write Good Code, Great Developers Steal Good Code, it would be to remind people that great developers can steal bad code as well. As the Goto Fail vulnerabilty, and even more the Heartbleed Bug should remind us, the fact that cod [read] Keywords: apple archive bug planetlotus planetlotus.org security

Another story video available - Circle Back
Thu, Aug 14th 2014 11:56a   Ben Langhinrichs
I posted another of my story videos on my channel, TheStoryTimeChannel, for those who enjoy these things. This is called Circle Back, and while it has a kid as the main character, it is not a children's story. It took me a lot longer to get to this one (because of lots of releases of our Notes/Domino related products). I played more with the production of the video, adding some effects and trying some different ways of showing the text. Of course, the story is the main thing, and while this is [read] Keywords: domino notes

Would you like that windmill rare or well done?
Tue, Aug 5th 2014 7:10a   Ben Langhinrichs
If your company uses Notes/Domino for email, you have probably learned that in spite of years of customer complaints, emails sent from Notes are iffy at best. On a good day, all the information gets through. On a bad day, data is misformatted, missing or just plain messed up. But it is just for such concerns that we at Genii Software tilt at the windmills of email fidelity and data integrity. Now, since the release of CoexLinks Fidelity 3.6, more and more companies are getting their windmills s [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes notes notes client rich text css email outlook server

Crazy quilt of Domino 9.0.1 HTML rendering
Thu, Jul 31st 2014 10:00a   Ben Langhinrichs
One challenging aspects of describing issues with Notes/Domino rich text rendering is that there seem to be so many engines. Even on IBM Domino 9.0.1, there are multiple rendering engines that render rich text differently (different ones fail in different ways). See below an example of Notes rich text rendered by three of the different engines (or at least they appear to be different engines given the results). (Traveler may have yet another engine, but these are all built into the core Domino s [read] Keywords: domino ibm inotes lsx notes rich text traveler email server smtp

My fairytale story video is up on Youtube
Sun, Jun 29th 2014 9:00a   Ben Langhinrichs
I finished up my story video, and it is now up on Youtube. I put it on a new channel, TheStoryTimeChannel, as I felt like it was sufficiently far removed from the IBM Notes and Gimp and product videos I do on my channel. Of course, that means I am starting with zero subscribers and zero view, so if you like this, it would be great if you could share it and subscribe. Plus maybe let me know what you think. This one took a lot, as I am trying to learn something about music mixing, and for this sto [read] Keywords: ibm notes

New videos using the Peter Jackson approach
Thu, Jun 19th 2014 7:20a   Ben Langhinrichs
No, no hobbits or elves or elaborate war scenes. Also, no CGI. But I am working on three (possibly four) separate CoexLinks Fidelity videos at one time. Each deals with a separate aspect of why fidelity matters, and each should be short enough (aiming for 3 minutes or shorter) that you can pull your boss aside after a meeting, pull it up on your tablet or phone and say, "Hey, I think you should see this." Now I just have to decide whether to release them all at once or one at a time. Well, tha [read] Keywords:
