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.
New iOS8 and Safari problem discovered.
Fri, Oct 24th 2014 6:10a David Leedy First let’s be clear what I’m posting about. This is NOT an IBM or XPages issue. This is specifically iOS8 and Safari.
I posted on StackOverFlow with all the details.
I have an XPages app that uses a bluetooth Opticon Scanner
No problems in iOS7 and Safari.
iOS8 and Safari do NOT work well with the scanner. Characters are dropped. It’s not reliable. Using Chrome on iOS8 seems to work fine.
I’ve no idea why or what the issue is. I posted on StackOverFlow and i [read] Keywords: ibm
NotesIn9 164: Learning XPages Part 5 – Application Properties
Thu, Oct 23rd 2014 6:41a David Leedy In this show we actually go into Designer and create a new database that we’re going to be working with for our application and I have a little discussion on some of the application properties that are useful for XPages Developement.
This show is I believe the first in the new larger Full HD resolution of 1980×1020. This will let me get more on the screen but might be harder to see if you typically use a smaller device. Please let me know how this size works for you.

NotesIn9 162: Learning XPages Part 3 – Source Control
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 6:11p David Leedy In this show I continue setting up the programming environment by installing Source Tree and pulling down a project that we’ll be using later in the series.
My plan is to try and emulate real life, and real life needs some good quality source control so I will ideally be doing a lot of different things with source control along the way. [read] Keywords: xpages
NotesIn9 161: Designer Plugins
Tue, Oct 21st 2014 6:34a David Leedy In this show I take a look at adding additional tools to your toolbox. Specifically we’re going to grab some great projects from OpenNTF.org. Among them are:
XPages Ext. Library
OpenNTF Domino API
When I talked about the OpenNTF Essentials. I didn’t realize there were 2 projects. The “runtime” and the “toolbox”. I was referring to the runtime even though I had clicked on the toolbox.

Email Do’s and Don’ts
Tue, Oct 14th 2014 7:42p David Leedy I’ve been getting a lot more emails from NotesIn9 viewers lately. Many are asking for XPages help with a particular problem.
While I prefer questions unrelated to Ni9 to be asked on StackOverFlow.com with the tag “xpages”, just so the question and answer is public and can therefore benefit more people, I’m always happy to get the email and will certainly try and help where I can. I can’t always. But I will try. Some of the emails say something like “I do [read] Keywords: notes
NotesIn9 158: Intro to the Frostillicus Framework
Fri, Oct 10th 2014 8:54a David Leedy In this show Jesse Gallagher returns to give us an introduction to this amazing Framework he’s created to try and improve the XPages coding experience.
I can’t say that I totally “get it” yet BUT it looks VERY interesting. I have so far taken the “controller” piece from the framework and I’m successfully using that in my applications and I’ll be featuring that on NotesIn9 very soon. It’s really improved how I create my applications. [read] Keywords: xpages applications
