Tim Tripcony

Everyone at Red Pill Development was devastated by the news of Tim Tripcony untimely death. Tim was a co-founder of Red Pill Development and his unique thinking and high intellect played an important part in our formation. After moving to Best Methods in early 2013 we continued to meet once a week over pizza as part of a tradition from our days at GBS known as Lunch SCRUM. Tim will always hold a special place in the hearts of those he worked with at Red Pill Development.

I am sure the Notes community as a whole will be shocked and saddened by the news. In many ways the Notes community was Tim’s second family. He was one of those rare individuals who constantly looked to share his experience with others asking for nothing in return. He did that in as many forums as he could. Tim was an active participant in the XPages Chat, Stack Overflow, on his own blog, and attendance at many User Group conferences in both the US and Europe. Shortly before leaving GBS in 2012 Tim took it upon himself to take a personal vacation to attend UKLUG at his own expense. As he saw it, if he was going to take some personal time away from work it should be to do something he enjoyed and be with people he enjoyed hanging out with.

I believe one of Tim’s enduring legacies will be as a pioneer in the early days of XPages. At a time when many of us struggled to understand the power of the platform, Tim was out there leading the way delving into its complexities and subtle nuances and then just as quickly sharing what he had learned with everybody else. There are few that have dug deeper or worked as hard as Tim to unlock some of the many mysteries XPages holds. I have leaned on Tim a great many times for his insight. Sadly his amazing talent will not be there for me the next time I need help.

I will miss Tim greatly. I will also appreciate and be thankful for his friendship over the years and the many many ways in which he unselfishly helped me whenever I had reason to ask. Lunch SCRUMs will never be the same without you Tim.

Our Views On Connect 2017
Tue, Feb 28th 2017 7:21p   Peter Presnell
Last week Devin Olson and myself had the chance to attend IBM Connect 2017 in San Francisco. It was a new venue in a new location combining some of the traditions of the past along with a few things new and different. I had the chance to hear IBM’s message, discuss the events with a number of the people who attended as well as share ideas internally with the team at Red Pill Now. The following is a summary of my thoughts from this year’s event. Application Modernization After having

Connecting With Graphs At IBM Connections
Mon, Feb 20th 2017 4:24p   Peter Presnell
Over the past 12 months Red Pill Now has continue to explore new and exciting ways in which we can exploit the potential of Graph Databases. The unique characteristics of Graph databases combined with REST APIs and the awesomeness that comes from Web Components and Material Design (via Polymer) is allowing us to transform Notes data in ways that was never possible until now. This includes modeling the structure of an entire portfolio of Notes databases, providing graph-based search for those dat

Installing and Configuring IBM Domino 9 on CentOS 6 Enterprise Linux
Wed, Nov 9th 2016 11:11p   Devin Olson
A few years ago, shortly after the release of Domino 9,  I wrote an instructional guide (along with some videos posted to YouTube) on how to install and configure IBM Domino on CentOS and posted it to dropbox.   The response was overwhelmingly positive, I had no idea so many people needed this type of guide. This year I presented a hands on workshop at AdminCamp 2016 where we went from a “bare metal” empty VM to a running Domino server, and while preparing that session I realize

IBM Traveler and Verse: Device Security and Administration Overview
Tue, Nov 8th 2016 2:17p   Devin Olson
There currently seems to be a great deal of confusion about IBM Traveler and Verse with regard to device security and administration. The necessary overview information is available from IBM, but is rather dispersed and somewhat difficult to track down in a single concise location. This document will attempt to answer some of the most common points of confusion and concern for those considering a Traveler deployment in their Domino environment -without necessarily having IBM Connect or Cloud sol

Tue, Sep 20th 2016 11:18p   Peter Presnell
Today it is almost impossible to imagine heading too far without without (a) possession of a smartphone; and (b) having it connected to the Internet. Smartphones have totally transformed the utility value of s mobile phone. While phones themselves are not all that new, it has been the integration of software capabilities and data that has transformed what we can and can’t do in our daily lives. Chat may never be quite as transformative, but we are definitely in the early stages of a new re
