I just wanted to mention that sometime last week NotesIn9 passed 100,000 total video plays/downloads of videos!
Of course that’s not unique users… people watch the same show more then once, but still I think it’s a really good number showing growing interest in XPages technology.
Anyway – I’m very pleased at the interest in my little show. When I started this in the summer of 2009 I never thought it would go this far. And I certainly couldn’t have done it without the awesome help from my growing list of contributors. These people are the true XPages experts and I’m very happy that they’ve come on the show to share their talents and tips.
My most popular show continues to be my original XPages Jumpstart video. A 73 minute session that I originally presented at some user groups. That show is been viewed / download over 8,500 times itself!!
There’s a lot more to come for NotesIn9.
- I’m investigating getting the shows transcribed or maybe even closed captioned/subtitled to help people where english is not their first language.
- I’m desperately trying to do some things to improve my website and consolidate XPages.TV and XPagesCheatSheet.com into NotesIn9 to try and make things easier to find.
- I’ve got some more great contributors coming on soon if all goes well.
- I also have a bunch of my own shows in the queue that I want to try and get to.
So needless to say, NotesIn9 will keep going and hopefully serve up another 100,00 in less time!
I really must thank Chris Miller and his Spiked Studio Productions for supporting NotesIn9 with wordpress hosting and advice. He came to me very early on and gave me some help when I really needed it.
I also want to thank Jeremy Hodge and his ZetaOne company for creating my logos and assistance with other aspects of the show.
And I especially want to thank everyone for watching and for any comments and emails. I really appreciate them!
In celebration of this event there will be some new shows out next week.

Tue, Jul 29th 2014 6:55a David Leedy In this show IBM Champion and everyone’s second favorite Doctor returns to NotesIn9. That’s right, Dr. Marky Roden is in the house with a GREAT tip on ways to speed up Domino Designer by using Design Definition to better control your database resources.
We last saw the good Doctor back on September 13th, 2012, Episode 74, talking about using jQuery. Don’t miss todays demo. You never know if he’ll disappear for another 684 days again.

NotesIn9 148: Getting XPages to talk to your phone
Mon, Jul 28th 2014 6:12a David Leedy Today we get another great contributor in the form of Oliver Busse. His website is oliverbusse.com. He’s going to do a really neat demo of how to intergrate XPages with Pushover.net to send messages to a phone that has the PushOver App installed.
I think that it’s always nice to see how to mix XPages with other services. [read] Keywords: xpages
NotesIn9 Celebrates 5 years of ScreenCasting and ALMOST 150 Episodes
Sun, Jul 27th 2014 7:03p David Leedy On July 11, 2009 I uploaded the first ever NotesIn9 to YouTube. The topic was this brand new concept in XPages called “Repeat Controls”.
5 years and 260,000ish downloads later and with the help if MANY people I’ve published 147 episodes so far and WILL hit 150 this week, and maybe even more.
Not too shabby for a little show based mostly on XPages I think.
As always I want to thank all the contributors to the show. Without them I could never have gotten this far.

NotesIn9 147: Using dGrowl with XPages
Tue, Jul 22nd 2014 6:30a David Leedy In this show Brad Balassaitis returns to Ni9 to give us some great instruction on how to start using the “dGrowl” project with our XPages applications. This is a tool that lets you popup messages back to the user. It’s a somewhat common effect and I really really like it. Actually before I got this demo from him I was attempting to do something similar inside Bootstrap4XPages and now I might try and switch to dGrowl for the additional features.
In addition to using dGrowl t [read] Keywords: notes
NotesIn9 146: Going Mobile with Bootstrap
Tue, Jul 8th 2014 11:14a David Leedy In this show, we get another great new contributor joining the NotesIn9 family. Please welcome Sean P McManus to the show. His blog is: http://spmcmanus.net I’m really excited to get Sean on as he gives us a great demo on using Bootstrap for an XPages mobile focused application.
Sean manually added Bootstrap to his application. Another option is to use a great project on OpenNTF to do this for you via an update site.

NotesIn9 145: Simple Feedback in XPages
Thu, May 29th 2014 4:57p David Leedy This is the last show I have from Tim Tripcony. This is probably the simpliest demo he’s done for Ni9 but no less important. It’s a demo of a way to return a message to a user based on an action.
Tim actually gave me this demo maybe a year ago and I just totally forgot about it and I assume he then did as well. While I hate the thought of forgetting about it I think it makes this show a little special. I was so happy to discover it when I went through our shared dropbox.

A conversation with my Son
He got a good response so I thought I’d give you a snippet of a conversation from this weekend.
Me: “Tell the girls we are having popcorn and ice cream for dinner”
Matt: “that is the stupidest idea I’ve ever heard.”
Me: “you think it’s a stupid idea?”
Matt: “I mean, not literally..I think it’s a great idea”

NotesIn9 143: Component vs Value binding in XPages
Thu, May 22nd 2014 6:42a David Leedy In this show Tim Tripcony explains that while we’ve typically been binding to a value all this time, it’s possible to bind to a component inside your XPages Development.
This show was originally published elsewhere and I basically grabbed this to try and improve the visibility and get Tim’s information as much exposure as possible.
