First I had the honor of being selected to speak at IBM Connect. This will be my sixth “Lotusphere” that I will be an attendee and my fourth as a speaker. David Leedy (of Notes in 9 fame, among other things) and I will be presenting “XPages: No Experience Necessary”, a show and tell session. Just like it sounds, this will be a from the ground up session, where we show you step by step how to create an XPages application. We’ll also send you on your way with a sample application.
Then IBM Champions were announced and I am proud to say, I am now one of them! I keep looking at the list to see if my name is still there! There are only 76 Champions worldwide and I am honored to be on the list.
Fri, Mar 14th 2014 8:13a Kathy Brown I somehow managed to not post about this, but I will be speaking at Engage next week! Previously, BLUG, Engage is one of my favorite conferences (previously user groups ) to attend. It’s an incredibly well-run conference and always in new and interesting locations. And there is always loads of chocolate for the speakers.
I will be presenting “Improve Your Domino Designer Experience” with Julian Robichaux on Tuesday at 1:30. (I think, the agenda is in non-US time format [read] Keywords: domino

I admit it, I was intimidated. I’m not sure why, but every time I saw a session on themes, I thought, “I should go to that”, or a blog post, “I should read that”, but I didn’t for the longest time. I had some misconceptions that intimidated me.
My first misconception was that themes were hard. They aren’t. I’ll show you how to create a theme in just a few minutes.

Mon, Feb 10th 2014 9:07a Kathy Brown Great Sessions at IBM Connect 2014
Lots to see and do at IBM Connect 2014. There was no way I could possibly see and do it all. I tried my best to attend sessions that were important to me, and as usual, I still couldn’t see them all, but what I saw was great and always motivates me to learn even more.
This year, I attended a few stand out sessions (no one get upset if I don’t mention YOUR session; remember, I couldn’t attend them all!).

Article: Failed Validation Fail
Wed, Jan 22nd 2014 2:11p Kathy Brown My validation was supposed to fail, but it wasn’t, so my fail validation failed, right? A tough bug to figure out, but I eventually got there. Read my article on SocialBizUg.org to see what happened.
I had an XPage application with pretty simple validation on the page. When the user didn’t enter a value, validation fired and an error message was displayed except on one particular field.
The XPage application setting has turned off client side validation, in order to displ [read] Keywords: application

Article: Justifying jQuery
Wed, Jan 15th 2014 7:44a Kathy Brown I admit it, I’m a convert. After seeing what jQuery can do for me, and using it in some projects, my brain is finally “thinking” in jQuery. In this article on SocialBizUg.org, I give a quick example of what jQuery can do for you.
I’ve written a few articles that mention jQuery and I’m really starting to love using it. So many times I’ve struggled to do something in XPages (which for me, is my first and only web development, hence the struggle) which can easily be acco [read] Keywords: xpages development
Article: You Learn Something New Everyday
Tue, Jan 14th 2014 7:11a Kathy Brown In this article on SocialBizUg.org, I explain how I learned something new about … sending mail!
I’ve been doing this Domino development thing for a while now. I recently ran into an issue that stumped me. It wasn’t even anything complicated, but I was completely stumped.
It was sending mail. More accurately, it wasn’t sending mail.
