Last year OpenNTF jointly hosted an ICS development contest with IBM with a difference: there had to be a team involved. The winners were Frank van der Linden and Frederic Dehedin. The application covered a variety of technologies, including Bluemix, Cloudant, and Watson. It also used the Jackson JSON Mapper Frank also submitted to OpenNTF and which has been covered on this blog before. As well as being a competition winner, the project is of particular interest because it goes beyond the technologies typical of many OpenNTF projects. So much so that a session covering the application has been accepted not only for IBM Connect but also IBM InterConnect, as Frank covers in the post he has kindly penned below.

Introduction
The Job of a Human Resources Employee is hard work, especially when it comes to handle hundreds or thousands of Job Applications. Often, the Cover Letters are coming in unstructured formats.. Keeping these data in order and prioritize interesting job applications can be difficult.

The details
HR Assistant is an XPages application running on Bluemix and is leveraging IBM Watson services which are helping:
  • Using the Tone Analyzer to get the emotions of the cover letter and job descriptions.
  • Using Personality Insights to get more insights of the applicant
    • Using Alchemy Language to get the keywords used in the text in jobs and job applications.
     
    We have decided not to store the data the traditional way in a Notes database, but in IBM Cloudant datastore.
    The main reason to use Cloudant was to experience a new NoSQL data store. In the end it was a good decision, because the returned data of the IBM Watson service where pretty big, and with Cloudant we where not hitting any limitations.
    More details about the application, see the blog of Frederic and me

    The heavy lifting
    The application make use of 2 external OSGi plugins to do the heavy lifting of JSON Conversion and connection with Cloudant.
    The OSGi plugins, including the update sites can be found in the Bitbucket repositories.
    Cloudant connector - https://bitbucket.org/flinden68/cloudant-connector
    Jackson Mapper plugin - https://bitbucket.org/flinden68/jackson-json-mapper-plugin
     
    Learn more
    At IBM Connect, Thursday 23rd February 8 AM in San Francisco and at IBM InterConnect, 22nd March 2 PM in LasVegas I will present a session about this application. In this session I will give more details about how we integrated the IBM Watson services and store it in IBM Cloudant and the lessons learned.

    The Application is available here: https://hrassistant.eu-gb.mybluemix.net/
    And the source code is available on Github: https://github.com/flinden68/HR-Assistant

    We at OpenNTF.org are excited to launch our new brand - OpenCode4Connections.org. OpenNTF has a proven track history in building open source communities around interesting technologies and products, e.g. it was the incubinator for the success of XPages. But let us welcome our newest member: OpenCode4Connections.org The intention behind OpenCode4Connections.org is a very simple and short story! IBM Connections deserves a dedicated place where the Open Source Community can meet and co

    Social SDK - Bring it to the next stage

    The big intention of IBM's Social Business Tookit was to make the IBM Connections API easy to consume from any Web / Java platform. And it still is! But how to proceed with the Social SDK in the time of Connections Pink? It seems to be the right moment, for IBM and the OpenNTF community to join forces and bring the Social SDK to the next stage. The community has already moved on with the SocialSDK for bugfixes and also enhancements. But now it's time to make the SocialSDK ready for

    The application development landscape of today's world is completely upside-down. While in the past a platform has to integrate all and should consume open standards, in today's world a platform should be capable of being integrated everywhere and providing open standards. This shift is a logical consequence of the new paradigms of microservices and microservice-oriented architecture. While the previous times an application development platform had to provide as many services as possibl

    Hackathon 2017 - A Unique Opportunity
    Sat, Feb 4th 2017 2:12p   Christian Guedemann
    Dear friends, In only 2 weeks, we will do something that I was afraid to even dream of. After holding the ICS Developer Competition in 2016, we will hold the IBM and OpenNTF Hackathon @ IBM Connect 2017. Two weeks before the Hackathon, we have already achieved all of our targets: the type audience that we are and also the target numbers - 50 attendees two weeks before was our vision. We have nine really attractive projects with great project leaders (yes, they are really great!). We h

    Learn, share and collaborate - The monday at IBM Connect is YOUR Day
    Mon, Jan 16th 2017 9:48a   Christian Guedemann
    LotusSphere/IBM Connect/IBM ConnectED have always been great events. And it's absolute natural to expect the same for this years edition. A first dive into the session list let you proof the expectation. But for me as a developer, there was always something missing at this events. The hands on experience. Yes there where labs (which I enjoy), but try to do something cool and crazy. Work together with other developer and do something special.... There was no time, to many good sessions,

    While we are celebrating 15 Years of OpenNTF - Another era has come to a well deserved end!
    Fri, Dec 16th 2016 7:19p   Christian Guedemann
    15 Years old! Founded as Notes Open Source Software and renamed to OpenNTF, OpenNTF.org has become 15 years old. I think the founders of OpenNTF, Bruce Elgort and Nathan T. Freeman, and also Vince Shuurman who was involved in the early Years of OpenNTF did not imagine how important OpenNTF would become after all these years. OpenNTF, the home of the Extension Library, the home of over 850 Project and the place where IBM ICS learned how to reintegrate open source code in to a core product.
