Announcing the XPages Development chat on Slack
Twitter Google+ Facebook LinkedIn Addthis Email Gmail Flipboard Reddit Tumblr WhatsApp StumbleUpon Yammer Evernote Delicious
David Leedy    

If you’ve never heard of Slack, it’s basically a “messaging app for Teams”.  You can access it via the web, desktop application or mobile app. Slack is a persistent chat experience with really good software behind it.  It allows for different “channels” inside the room so we currently have “general”, “beginner”, “advanced” and “random” discussion area.

I little while ago Jesse Gallagher and I setup an XPages Development chat on Slack.  We’ve been playing with it and would now like to make this available to the public.

The goal of the chat is to be a place where people can come together and talk XPages. There’s no good public place to really do this that I know of.  The XPages Forum is a disappointment.  Stack OverFlow wants specific questions and abhors actual “discussions”, and you can’t really start a discussion on someones blog.

So where do you go to just discuss an idea, ask a generic question or even just say hi to like minded individuals? We give you:


Because this is an open invite we do have some rules that are needed to maintain decorum.  Those rules are at the bottom of the post.

How do you join?  Unfortunately email addresses have to be “approved” currently.  There are ways around this but we’ve not really looked into it yet.  So for now just send me an email and I will add you to the group as I FIND THE TIME.  So don’t expect instant access.  :)  Please send me an email dleedy at notesin9 . com and put “Slack” in the subject.  Please don’t ask in the comments.  Emails only.




XPages Slack Chat Rules

1. No Bitching at all. We are about Doing.

2. Stay close to the XPages topic.  Off topic is allowed in #random. Bitching is never allowed.

3. All content discussed in the chat should be considered public. Do not share code or ideas that you consider private. Do not discuss NDA material.

This is a community chat of XPages enthusiasts and NOT a support group. While questions may be asked do not expect a solution.  If you get one great.  If not then realize that everyone is busy with their day jobs.

The recommended way to ask a question is to post it on StackOverFlow and then post a link to the question in the chat.

NotesIn9 206: Rest Servlets
Thu, Jun 1st 2017 12:34a   David Leedy
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.

NotesIn9 204: Building an Alexa Skill
Wed, Feb 22nd 2017 6:33p   David Leedy
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 o
Everyone Pay Attention!! Declan is blogging again!
Wed, Feb 1st 2017 6:17p   David Leedy
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?
The Famous Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie
Thu, Jan 26th 2017 7:27p   David Leedy
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 : Create the infamous Pretzel Cookie at Home! My wife has made these before and I can attest it to be a pretty good repre
2017 IBM Champion thoughts.
Thu, Dec 15th 2016 2:58p   David Leedy
Yesterday IBM announced their 2017 “IBM Champions”. I’m honored to once again be associated with an amazing group of people.  This will be my 7th year as a champion going all the way back to when the program started. I do want to thank the people that took the time out of their day to think of me and nominate me.  I do hope my silly little NotesIn9 screencast has been valuable to you. I don’t talk about being an IBM Champion too often because one, I hate talking about m

My IBM Champion 1st Round Draft Pick
Mon, Oct 3rd 2016 12:46p   David Leedy
It’s that time of year again to talk about the IBM Champion program. I’ve blogged about it at least a couple times before in “how to thank someone”, and “thanking people that share” and I’m here to talk about again.  Additional information about the program is here. Actually this is one of my favorite blog posts I make.  I love trying to find someone who is not an IBM Champion but shares great content and I think deserves to be an IBM Champion. This
