OpenCode4Connections Contest Winners

Earlier this week, at Social Connections, we announced the winners of the OpenCode4Connections IBM Connections Customizer contest. To support the contest there was a great amount of effort from Christian Guedemann, Martin Donnelly and others to set up the infrastructure and enablement materials to help ensure the contest was a success. Even though the contest only ran for a short period of time, the numbers were impressive:

- over 40 organisations were provisioned by IBM during the pilot phase
- 20 organisations developed or partially developed something for the contest
- there were 11 submissions which went to voting

The winners were:

Enhanced Activity Stream - Jay Agrawal
This project contributed a notifier and infinite scroll to the Activity Stream in Connections and was something Jay had previously built as custom code in the header.jsp of the homepage of Connections and extended into the Connections Customizer. As the ReadMe says, by taking the code you can also add this functionality to a Connections 5+ instance. Jay is also a first-time contributor to OpenNTF, so it's great to be expanding our contributor-base.

Status Update Tone Analyzer - John Jardin
This project is a very unobtrusive contribution which analyzes the tone of the status update, allowing the user to review before posting. The status is analyzed in intervals of 2 seconds while the update is typed. In the screenshot below it's been highlighted because, as I'm sure you can tell, it blends well with the rest of the content around it.

Bluemix Weather Widget / Watson Workspace Links - Brian Gleeson
The first project adds a weather widget to the community overview page of a chosen community, based on the community's UUID entered in the JSON. If you want it to apply to all communities, the "match" property of the json can be removed. This points to an XPages application running on Bluemix and the Weather Company data from Bluemix and is a great example of integrating all these technologies into Connections.

The second project again can be contributed to a specific community using the UUID or to all communities, by removing the "match" property. This allows posting to a Watson Workspace defined in a watsonSpaceId property. You'll also need to set up a Watson Workspace App, adding the appId and appSecret to the JS file.

Floyd - Daniele Vistalli
A special award was given to Daniele Vistalli who contributed not a customization per se but a framework for running applications or webpages, loading CSS etc. This allows you to add customizations more easily.

Open Badges
Some time ago OpenNTF investigated the use of Open Badges to reward those who get involved with us. It's something we first became aware of when IBM issued them to IBM Champions, but for various reasons we've not been in a position to progress it. However, this contest gave us the opportunity to issue the first Open Badge, to our winners. You'll notice the badge features a laurel wreath (in pink, the colour associated with the current developments around IBM Connections) around the new OpenCode4Connections logo. Thank you to our contest winners for their patience with our faltering steps on this new journey!

We'll be rolling Open Badges out wider during the coming months for various initiatives and you will see how we will vary the badges for our different brands.

Updates To OpenNTF Website Content
Thu, Nov 30th 2017 7:34p   Paul Withers
Today we pushed up some changes to the OpenNTF website. The previous area "IP and Legal" has been split down into "IP" and "Legal". The Legal area covers legalistic documents for aspects such as our bylaws, IP policy, privacy policy etc. If you're looking for practical content about the IP process and how to apply it, you should look instead at the IP area. A lot of the content here has been restructured or slightly reworded to better explain why we do it, why you want us to do it,

When the free non-production Domino server license was launched on developerWorks earlier this year, it brought that area of developerWorks to the conscious awareness for possibly the first time. I looked at the "Communities" sub-page and, in particular, the "Social" area near the bottom on the right. That highlighted that there were Twitter feeds being publicised that were not being maintained. That needed addressing. CollaborationToday has a team curating the content that appea

We at OpenNTF.org are excited to launch our new brand - OpenCode4Connections.org.

Social SDK - Bring it to the next stage
Mon, Apr 3rd 2017 4:04p   Christian Guedemann
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

OpenAPI Specifications for Freebusy and Calendar available on OpenNTF's Github account and SmartNSF Beta 2 released

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
