Announcing the XPages Development chat on Slack

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:

XPages.slack.com

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.

Thanks!

Dave

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.

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

Ok. It’s that time of year again. The Tree on a Truck Game starts on Black Friday!!! The game is simple. If you see a vehicle carrying a Christmas Tree you yell “TREE!!” and then record it.

Mon, Oct 10th 2016 9:48a   David Leedy
In this show, NEW CONTRIBUTOR, Patrick Kwinten comes on to talk about using Grunt – a JavaScript Task Runner and font-awesome with XPages. Patrick is an excellent developer and has shared a lot of great content on his blog at : https://quintessens.wordpress.com This show is also the first show from Oliver Busse, a new Video Producer for NotesIn9. I’m beyond excited to have his assistance in getting more content shared with the community.

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

NotesIn9 201: Thoughts on the Future of XPages and NotesIn9
Mon, Sep 26th 2016 11:30a   David Leedy
This show is the sequel to my recent blog post titled “No More”. As I said in that post I HATE doing opinion stuff but feel that I now must. I also HATE talking about myself but because of things that happened at IconUK that is also a topic in the show. Because I wanted to talk about IconUK the show has grown bigger then I originally intended.  Sorry that couldn’t be helped. As mentioned in the show I have LOTS of people to be thankful for, especially, Mark Roden, Rob Mason

I’m still working on the next show, but to tide anyone over I thought I’d dig up some old advertisements I had done. First I think this might be the only XPages TV ad ever!! Then the kids played the roles of cousins to talk about Domino vs Exchange. Good times. P.S. The boy is now taller then I am!!!  WTH?

I don’t know the who, the what, or the why. All I know is this happened today at IconUK in London England about 3,500 miles away from where I film my silly little screencast. I don’t know what to say…   Thank You! P.S.  I showed the pics to my wife and she started crying.

No More.
Tue, Sep 13th 2016 4:12p   David Leedy
I hate doing opinion stuff.  Who cares about my opinion?  Probably not you.  Certainly not my dog. I don’t often blog my opinion and it’s very rare that it makes it onto NotesIn9.  It’s one of my rules actually. No More. I’ve had enough and I’m no longer going to stay silent. Today IBM released information that they’re going to be supporting Domino to 2021.  And yes it’s clear that the terminology is actually “at least 2021”.  So there&
