A Warning Tale for Presenters
Wed, Nov 1st 2017 1:04p   Paul Withers
One of the aspects of Social Connections that I meant to include in my blog post summary but forgot was the issues around wifi access. No matter what a venue says about their readiness, it’s an aspect that I’m sure is virtually impossible for conference organisers to check or test beforehand. So if they say they can handle the number of attendees often connecting with multiple devices, I’m sure it’s something you just have to hope they really can handle. Social Connection
Worth Considering for #Domino2025?

tl;dr Chromium support for Notes (Eclipse) Client would affect backwards compatibility in some edge cases but could bring a host of benefits As I read another article about the recent IBM announcement (which was for the benefit of existing ICS customers rather than press and analysts), one word struck me as it has on a number of occasions: Sametime. The product is most definitely dated and the focus on Watson Workspace has no doubt overshadowed it, increased at Social Connections by the news abo
Social Connections 12 Review
Mon, Oct 30th 2017 1:22p   Paul Withers
A couple of weeks ago I was fortunate enough to attend Social Connections 12 in beautiful Vienna. It was the third time I have attended the conference – Social Connections 3 in Dublin as an attendee, Social Connections 9 in Stuttgart as a speaker and now Social Connections 12 as a speaker. Over the years my focus has changed and this year’s conference was another extension to that. But before the conference I had time to wander around Vienna. The history and beauty of some of the loc
Domino Futures
Sun, Oct 29th 2017 7:42p   Paul Withers
Most times you take a week off work and nothing happens except a load of emails. Then there’s a week like last week: probably the most significant news for the platform since the extensibility API. For anyone who’s not glanced at Planet Lotus lately or picked up on the news. IBM have announced a strategic partnership with HCL for a list of ICS products including Sametime and Domino. Domino 10 will be released in the second half of 2017. Plus a face-to-face and web jam will gather a w
Shared Private Views and FP9
Tue, Oct 24th 2017 9:28a   Paul Withers
On Friday I picked up a message on Watson Workspace from lifetime IBM Champion Theo Heselmans asking for someone to confirm an issue with private views. One of the strengths of the IBM Champion community is that everyone is willing to take personal time to help and Theo was the first to accept an abstract to speak at BLUG back in 2010. A short while later we I had confirmed a problem with Shared Private on First Use views. Fortunately, as Theo was able to confirm a little time later, it was an i
Watson Workspace Essentials Launch / Social Connections
Tue, Sep 26th 2017 1:37p   Paul Withers
Using Today IBM announced the launch of Watson Workspace Essentials, an enterprise-targeted offering of Watson Workspace. Watson Workspace itself has been in preview since World of Watson last October, during which time it has matured and had quite a bit of development. The product is still available free of charge, but this offering is specifically aimed at enterprises with additional support, authentication and guest access support. The plethora of chat and persistent chat software may seem ex
Lessons in Optimising Performance
Sun, Sep 24th 2017 11:47a   Paul Withers
Over the last few months I’ve been involved with an application that has needed quite considerable optimisation and architectural modification. A few weeks ago I published a blog post about aspects of developing for performance and then followed up with a discussion about performance and Domino. In this blog I’m going to go into more depth about some of the lessons learned and techniques applied to address performance as required, highlight how performance requirements can change as
New ODA Release and Design API Updated
Fri, Sep 22nd 2017 12:14p   Paul Withers
This week two new releases of ODA came out on OpenNTF and also published to OpenNTF’s artifactory repository, for those wanting to use ODA via Maven. They covered a host of new developments and some minor fixes from over the last few months since Domino FP8 was released. On ODA, it’s worth pointing out there is a short url for accessing the project on OpenNTF – https://oda.openntf.org. 4.1.0 is the next FP8 release, the release notes are on the Release page on OpenNTF. Except f
Big News for Domino, Connections and OpenNTF
Fri, Sep 15th 2017 7:31p   Paul Withers
There are signs you can tell summer is over. For us in the northern hemisphere, the weather starts feeling chillier (although it’s been very changeable in UK most of the “summer”). And things start ramping up as people get back from holidays and Q3 comes to an end. We’ve already seen Domino FP9 or Zircon released last month and another Verse on Premises release. It’s also good that I only just realised I’ve been running FP9 for a few weeks now. With previous r
Notes, Domino, The Cloud and Performance
Thu, Aug 24th 2017 1:04p   Paul Withers
Over the last month or so, I’ve been working on an application that pushes performance quite a bit. Last week I published a blog post about aspects of developing for performance. I’ll be writing a future blog post (maybe more than one) on the approaches I’ve taken for performance. But in this blog post I want to take a step back and discuss why I had to address performance, even after quite a bit of optimisation from the initial development. That’s because the learning re
