AD107 Session Slides and Databases from MWLUG 2014
Mon, Sep 29th 2014 11:10a Mike McGarel At MWLUG 2014, Graham Acres and I presented a session that describes a way to use Java to build a shopping cart application. The zip file was too big for BleedYellow, so here are the session slides, the source database, the app for Domino 9.0, and the app for Domino 8.5.3.
In the session, Graham and not only discussed code, the the thinking behind the code. We hope it helps in your journey into the Java language.
By the way, I also posted the session slides on SlideShare. [read] Keywords: domino

My IBM Connect SpeedGeeking Session
Mon, Feb 4th 2013 11:10p Mike McGarel Last week, at IBM Connect, I participated in one of my favorite annual sessions, SpeedGeeking, where a group of speakers simultaneously present to a small audience that moves from speaker to speaker.
I showed one way to create a faceted search page in XPages, based on a project I posted on OpenNTF.
As promised (was it really a week ago already?), I posted the presentation deck on Slideshare. I hope you find it useful. [read] Keywords: ibm
It's Easier With XPages
Tue, Jan 22nd 2013 9:11a Mike McGarel Next week, at IBM Connect 3013, Paul Withers and I will demonstrate several ways that coding in XPages is more efficient than coding in classical Domino techniques.

Below is our session information from the online agenda:

MWLUG 2012: People First, Technologists Second
Mon, Aug 20th 2012 9:08a Mike McGarel Another great Midwest Lotus User Group conference, MWLUG 2012, ended last week. Personally, I learned a lot from the speakers who were generous enough to share their knowledge. Likewise, I hope Roy Rumaner and I were able to help those who attended our "Customizing OneUI" workshop with their XPages journey (slides will be published soon).
For me, though the most valuable part of LUGs and larger conferences like Lotusphere is connecting with people. At every LUG, it is wonderful to see old fr [read] Keywords: domino
