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, Amanda Bauman, Tim Clark and too many others to mention. I want to thank everyone not just for the activity and comments around the Marky Roden video, but also all those who sent me comments showing support for the No More post. I’ve NEVER gotten that kind of reaction before and it meant a lot to me!!
The show does contains an announcement on the future of NotesIn9.
Once all that is out of the way I do give my personal opinions on the Good, the Bad, and the Future of Domino XPages.
At the end of the show I also have a clip from the end of the IconUK event simply because I just wanted to never lose it.
This show is about 38 minutes. There are no rules for today.
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 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.
