I can’t say it any better than Jesse, Tom, Nathan, or Tim. A site (no link, they don’t deserve it) is aggregating data without attribution. Which is really not cool. And then saying she does it for people with low bandwidth. Sigh. I guess she’s the Robin Hood of content.
Article: We Want To Hear From You
Thu, Dec 12th 2013 11:34a Kathy Brown I write articles over at SocialBizUg. Formerly known as the Notes Developer Tips Newsletter. Chris Miller writes similar articles for the Admin side of life. And one day I noticed, he gets emails in his inbox where people ask him questions! So, not to be outdone, I have blatantly stolen that idea, and as you wonderful readers, so send in your questions and tips. I will do my best to respond to them. Consider this a competition between Admins and Devs. We can’t let them win, c [read] Keywords: admin
Article: This is a stickUp
Wed, Dec 11th 2013 8:11a Kathy Brown No, I’m not trying to rob you. This is a handy little bit of code to keep your tool bars at the top.
While we would all love to create slick applications with a sleek UI (read: not a lot of stuff on the page), most of us are creating enterprise applications that often require lengthy forms with field after field after field. There are of course many solutions to attempt to deal with the issue. You can break the form up into tabs (don’t get me started on this, tabs are another article), [read] Keywords: applications
Article: Source Control – Merge
Tue, Dec 10th 2013 1:37p Kathy Brown Source control is a fantastic tool, but when it’s new, it can be confusing. This month on SocialBizUg.org, I talk about merging.
This month I’m going to talk about merging. You write your code. You commit your code. You pull code from other developers and you merge it. Ideally, you’ve communicated with your fellow developers and the merge just … well, merges. There was nothing overlapping and it all merges together and you can push up the merged code. Great. But what do you d [read] Keywords:
Article: Lead Up to IBM Connect
Fri, Dec 6th 2013 11:18a Kathy Brown It’s almost here! Sessions announced soon (I hope)! Hopefully you’ve registered, booked your room, and booked your flight. If you see me there, say hi!
Back in September, I wrote about IBM Connect 2014. They had just announced registration and the call for abstracts.
Already this year, we are starting to see a few things different from years past. Rather than a flurry of email notices going out to speakers all at once, it seems they are releasing some sessions out ahead [read] Keywords: ibm
Fri, Dec 6th 2013 9:07a Kathy Brown As you’ve probably already heard (if you’re in the “Lotus” community, that is. If you read my blog for running stuff,then you have no clue what I’m talking about) that the 2014 IBM Champions for ICS have been announced.
Last year I was thrilled to be selected as an IBM Champion and I am just as thrilled this year to be selected again. I am in great company this year (as last year), with 86 other Champions.
I hope I can continue to contribute to the community in [read] Keywords: ibm

Article: Are You Using IBM Worklight?
Thu, Nov 7th 2013 10:11a Kathy Brown I’ve been seeing more and more tweets about it. I’ve heard a number of people mention it, and it’s entered my radar as something to learn more about, and that’s IBM Worklight.
So what is it? It’s IBM Worklight

Article: Too Many If Statements Time To Switch It Up
This may be obvious to some of you, but it’s always good to cover the basics in case you missed it. If statements. IF your code (Haha! See what I did there?) has a lot of if statements and else if statements, in a never-ending string of impossible-to-follow conditions, THEN you should consider switching it up to a SWITCH statement.
