criteria on the contest
I would also like to thank IBM's Niklas
Heidloff for driving the success of the fourth development contest
within the community. Ever since I started working with Niklas a few years
back, he has always wanted to have a development contest like this. You
have all helped to "knock this out of the park (again++++)" for
not only the IBM XPages community but for Niklas personally.
As Chairman of OpenNTF I would like
to thank all of the people who participated in the contest and to headersoft
for their sponsorship. The community is the ultimate winner here as they
now have 23 new assets that can be used to develop and deliver apps..

2000 XPages Questions on StackOverflow
Wed, Feb 19th 2014 12:10a Niklas Heidloff What a great story. Two
years ago the XPages community
decided to use StackOverflow for XPages related specific questions and
answers. Since then 2000 questions have been asked and 84% of them have
been marked as answered.
One advantage of StackOverflow is that
