I’m very happy to announce that after the amazing success of last years XPages Cheatsheet, there will be a brand new CheatSheet for this year!
This year’s sheet is titled “XPages: Social Tools” and is intended to be a starting point on how to connect your XPages Apps to Social Services like LotusLive, DropBox, Twitter, FaceBook, IBM Connections, IBM SameTime and the IBM Social Business Toolkit.
This document would not have been possible without the effort of IBMers Dan O’Connor, Niklas Heildoff and Phil Riand. They literally pulled togerther all the content and “all” I had to do was the formatting. I really hope this proves helpful to people who want to integrate their apps with these social services.
I have learned that the original XPages Cheatsheet will return for Lotusphere. I did send IBM a new version with a couple of VERY MINOR updates that people had sent to me. So even if you have the old one feel free to pick the new one up to get those changes. But again 99% of it is the same.
I assume that both cheatsheets will be available at the Lotus Technical Information booth. They might make it into the back of some of the sessions again. I’m not speaking this year so I’m not really certain about that. They might end up in the Labs also since they were last year.
On or after Lotusphere I’ll be adding the “XPages: Social Tools” sheet to XPagesCheatSheet.com, which is the website that I use to host the downloadable versions as well as the Demo database that I use for most of the NotesIn9.com videos. So you will be able to get it even if you don’t attend the conference.
I hope everyone likes them. If you’re coming to Lotusphere safe travels and I hope to see you!

Every year over the Christmas season we play a game. We count the number of Christmas Trees we see on vehicles. And by count I mean the first person to shout “TREE!” gets a point. While the game makes me happy, it does cause stress as gosh darn it I also want to win.
My wife has infected a bunch of her friends with the game and here’s a snippet of what she po [read] Keywords: domino

Public Service Announcement for IBM Connect
Wed, Sep 11th 2013 2:59p David Leedy Ok so I’m starting to think about IBM Connect. I’m not yet sure I will be attending. Assuming I do attend I’m 99% sure I will not be submitting any abstracts*. I’ve yet to officially ask at my “Day Job”.
But in order to ask for something like this you kinda need to know how much it will cost. Right? I’m not crazy here am I? Sadly that’s not as easy to find out all the costs any more.
One of the reasons why it’s difficult to know the co [read] Keywords: ibm
NotesIn9 127: XPages Parallel Processing
Wed, Sep 11th 2013 6:56a David Leedy In this show Serdar Basegmez returns with a demo taken from his recent presentation at Icon UK.
He’ll introduce the concept of creating a new thread in your XPages application that can be used for longer running processes. This effectively lets you do 2 things at once in your application. [read] Keywords: xpages application
