The IBM Connect Conference,  which used to be Lotusphere until it was re-branded several years back, is to be held in San Francisco February 20-23 2017.  As you are probably aware, for more than two decades this event was held at the Disney complex in Orlando.  This is the first time the event is to be held on the West Coast of the USA. It has also been pushed back a month on the calendar.

I personally have been to 18 of these events, starting out back in the day when you continuously cycled your browser refresh button, around the time the registration page live time hit, hoping to get a spot before the conference was full. That usually happened in less than an hour.

A lot has changed in the Notes and Domino community over the past two decades. For the past four years we have passed on taking a booth on the Showcase floor, instead holding a DOCOVA event on the boardwalk or some other venue close to the action.

This year we wanted to try and get a gauge from customers and business partners on their thoughts regarding the conference, find out if they were planning to attend, or not, and why.

Here is the link to the conference web site.  If you have not been there take a minute and have a look.  There are a lot of different options compared to previous years that help you to control your costs from a registration point of view.  Sessions have yet to be posted, but should be up soon.

Have a look if you have not already, then leave a comment on this page to let us know what your feelings are.

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 17: Input translation and input validation formulas
Thu, May 25th 2017 1:51p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 17 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  The subject of this blog is Input translation and input validation formulas (formulae if you prefer). Right.  So, one day I hear this argument coming from down the hall here at DOCOVA.  The dev team embroiled in some discussion.  Oh the controversy.  Fisticuffs? Naw.  Heated?  Maybe that would be a bit of a stretch.  The debate?  How should input translation and input validation formulas be handled in DOCOVA? In a

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 16: Form events
Tue, May 23rd 2017 1:24p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 16 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry I’m going to talk about form events. Okay, so the talk about form events usually starts of with the question: Does DOCOVA have document events like onLoad, onUnload, QueryOpen, QuerySave and WebQueryOpen? Yes.  DOCOVA supports both typical browser events like onLoad and onUnload but has also been extended to handle similar events that were found in Notes forms like QueryOpen, QuerySave, PostSave and so

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 15: Private on first use folders

Welcome to blog series part 15 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I’m going to talk about good ‘ol Private on first use folders. This is another one of those “interesting” Notes application design constructs.  In my journeys I don’t think I’ve ever come across this same sort of construct in any other application environment.  Anywhere.  Ever.  Sure, a private folder, but “…on first use” is the kicker.  Interestingl

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 14: Column sorting and categorizing
Tue, May 16th 2017 12:18p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 14 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA..  In this entry I’m going to talk about view column sorting and categorizing. All view sorting and categorizing functionality is supported in DOCOVA.  Additionally, other properties like “Show multiple values as separate entries” and showing response docs in a hierarchy are also supported. I mean, as you get more in depth with DOCOVA, you’ll learn the breadth of the view object model and all the cool stuff

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 13: Shared columns and fields
Thu, May 11th 2017 1:52p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 13 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  This entry is dedicated to shared columns and fields.  It’s short and sweet. DOCOVA does not support the concept of shared columns and fields between applications at this time. Say what?  I know, right?  DOCOVA is so over the top, so chalk full of functionality…it’s crazy, alas at the time of writing this blog entry, it doesn’t support shared columns and fields.  Well, that’s the reason ri

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 12: Multi-value fields
Tue, May 9th 2017 12:01p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 12 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry it’s all about multi-value fields. Notes had the concept of multi-value fields on forms.  All fields were basically treated as arrays of values.  For example when addressing field values in LotusScript, you might write some code like; Dim myval = doc.myfield(0)  (where doc is a NotesDocument) Although it’s a bit of an odd duck, DOCOVA supports the same type of addressing when it comes to form

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 11: Pass-thru HTML and Generate HTML for all fields
Thu, May 4th 2017 1:02p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 11 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA. In this entry I’m going to talk about “Pass-thru HTML and Generate HTML for all fields”. A neat aspect of forms development in Notes was the ability to treat text on a form as pass-thru HTML.  This meant that you could add HTML and inline JavaScript directly onto your forms and mark it as pass-thru so that the Domino server would let the text “pass-thru” as HTML/JavaScript when the form was being rende

Migrate Notes to DOCOVA Blog Series Part 10: Refresh fields on keyword change
Tue, May 2nd 2017 12:11p   John Ryan
Welcome to blog series part 10 of 17 on migrating Notes apps to DOCOVA.  In this entry it’s all about “Refresh fields on keyword change”. Ya, let’s take a moment to just love this one.  Have you ever used it in your Notes apps?  Refresh fields on keyword change was a bit of an odd beast, no?  The purpose of this operation was to enable field options (or values) to be recalculated based on the change of a selection field. For example, if you had one keyword field on a

Calendar View Integration in DOCOVA V5

You’ve built a new application for your client and they love it. You’re their hero. Two weeks later, they’re back with a list of enhancement questions and new ideas. This can happen regardless how many requirements gathering sessions you have. Once the system is in Production and all the users start accessing it, the requests start to come in. One of these requests may be “Can we see the data in a Calendar format?”. For those of us that have spent many years buildin

12 Apps in 18 Days – A Notes Migration Project
Wed, Apr 26th 2017 4:09p   David Wice
Jamesway Incubator, located in Cambridge Ontario, manufactures and sells incubators worldwide.   For years they have used IBM Notes and Domino collaboration products to automate business processes and share information with a staff located all over the world.  However, like many in the Notes and Domino community, a corporate decision was recently made to switch to Microsoft based technologies. Replacing Notes based email is relatively easy, since the migration tools and processes are well def
