This is starting to be a little old, but after every BLUG/Engage every blogger from the community simply has to - contract is very strict about this :) - write that Theo and Hilde did it again, that Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and event most successful. It's very easy to do so, as it is 100 % true.

In previous years you may have noticed, though, that most of the "post-event" blog posts don't mention specific sessions but more the general vibe of the event (and that's not because sessions are not good, they sure are). It's caused by the fact the people in this community are simply great and it is extremely nice to be part of it.

I am sad I did not speak this year, as speakers decided to collect some money to buy Theo and Hilde something to thank them for all their hard work. It was a really touching moment and I'm very happy I've witnessed it. So, Hilde and Theo, thanks a lot and enjoy your well deserved weekend!!!

Attending user group events helps you to assign real faces to Twitter handles, it gives you the opportunity to personally thank people who were helping you on Slack chat with some problems or who wrote fantastic piece of software you use every day. It also gives you a better perspective on what is going on in your field. This year despite very optimistic changes in IBM and promises from new GM for IBM Collaborations Solutions Inhi Cho Suh was a bit less cheerful. During some of the discussions I've noticed bigger interest in alternative ways of working with Domino data, alternative approaches to build UI for existing Notes applications. Many of the sponsoring companies were offering solutions to help customers use existing data in a modern way, be it by providing frameworks to builds standard apps or by first moving data from Domino to some other storage and then use them.

What everybody wanted to hear was when the next release of Domino/Notes will be announced. But we did not hear that from IBM. What we did hear was that Connect 2017 will be in San Francisco on February 19-22. And by the way, chances are next version of Domino will not be announced at all. With Inhi's determination to make a difference I guess everything can happen now.

P.S.: I never was at Lotusphere/Connect, so I've up until day before the Engage never met Mat Newman in person. Yet when he came to "pre engage lotusbeer" I was given a legendary hug from him and I think he really meant it when he said "it is SOO GOOOD to meet you" (please read with Australian accent). Crossing that of my bucket list! Not only he is the biggest Notes enthusiast, he is also Linux user. That I call great taste in software!

I have bad case of FOMO this week
Wed, May 31st 2017 8:37a   Martin Jinoch
This week hosts two events I would love to attend: DNUG 44 in Berlin and Social Connections 11 in Chicago. Being part of the team organizing an event and then not be able to go to the event sucks. Big time. With the rest of the team already in Chicago (and asleep now) or en route there, our usual chat channels are quiet this morning. That feels strange. I keep checking my internet connection if it is working. Seems to be ok. At DNUG IBM has just announced acquisition of XCC! Congratulations to

Very unexpected (and weird) question
Tue, May 30th 2017 4:10p   Martin Jinoch
"Are you available for XPages training for beginners?" was the question asked recently. I am not making this up. I really am not. My first reaction (after several seconds - or perhaps minutes - of total suprise) was: "Whaaat? Why would anybody for crying out loud now START to learn XPages?" Then we talked a bit about dates and after realizing I can only do it in September I was sure they won't want me to do it anymore. To my even bigger surprise they came back. And it got even better today:

I think I can call it a tradition now, as I every year since 2011 travel to Belgium (or Netherlands) to attend and sometimes even to speak at Engage (formerly BLUG) user group event. This year the latter applies. Christian Guedemann and I will be presenting SmartNSF (https://wiki.openntf.org/display/XRAPI/SmartNSF) and its role in application modernization "movement". The session is scheduled for Monday, May 8 from 11:45 to 12:30 in room D. Gorilla. Looking forward to meeting yellowverse peop

What to expect in upcoming SmartNSF Beta 3 release?
Mon, Mar 20th 2017 11:35a   Martin Jinoch
Changes We've decided to rename strategies to make the names shorter, yet still descriptive enough. We've basically removed all SELECT_ and ALL_ parts of the names. For example SELECT_ALL_DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW is from now on DOCUMENTS_FROM_VIEW. Extending the life of your keyboard is just a positive side effect of this change. Bug fixes Date format of returned DATETIME items was broken, so we fixed it. Bigly! ARRAY_OF_DOUBLE data type was returning array of nulls instead of array of actual doubl

Re: Domino REST performance analysis
Wed, Mar 15th 2017 7:18a   Martin Jinoch
Csaba Kiss has published blogpost http://xpagexplorer.org/domino-rest-performance-analysis/ about his findings regarding performance of various REST technologies available on Domino now. Just a couple of remarks: use case for reading 10000 documents at once is probably very far from most real world scenarios some may argue ReadViewEntries method is not REST service per se. And it is a core function deep in the HTTP server, probably developed in C. That's something we can't beat I guess SmartN

SmartNSF Beta 2 released
Tue, Mar 7th 2017 9:50a   Martin Jinoch
You may have noticed that there is new project available on OpenNTF.org site. It is called SmartNSF (https://openntf.org/main.nsf/project.xsp?r=project/SmartNSF/summary) and it aims to help developers build REST services on top of the Domino databases. Unlike other approaches I am aware of, this project adds Designer integration and smart definition of routes, data retrieval strategies and returned values in one place. And this definition is made using Groovy syntax. How cool is that?:-) You can
