Nathan T. Freeman    

Next week I will be in Austin, TX at MWLUG 2016. Red Pill Now is a platinum sponsor again this year, and I am fortunate to have been accepted to present a two-hour workshop on the GraphNSF technology from the OpenNTF Domino API. I’ve been working on the GraphNSF implementation for over 3 years now. It’s software that, for me, is as intensely personal as it is useful.

This session will be the first time I’ve built a live graph application in front of an audience. I’ve shown code snippets and samples before, but this time we will build a live model for an org chart application over the course of the workshop. If you are familiar with Eclipse, Java interfaces, REST APIs and Postman, the XPages API Toolkit and setting up ODA on a Domino server — you are welcome to code along in the room. However, I think for most people, your best bet will be to watch how I work with a properly configured environment to build a graph plugin that integrates with the OpenNTF Domino API REST Service extension to Domino Access Services.

If you would like to get a headstart on the workshop, you should check out the latest episode of David Leedy’s NotesIn9, featuring Oliver Busse’s introductory tutorial to using GraphNSF in XPages. He has learned a great deal about how to set up graphs from NSFs, and I intend to answer some of the questions and issues he brought up during this video.

Once you’ve learned how to build a GraphNSF application with a REST interface, you’ll want to learn how to access it from a web application. I would strongly recommend you check out my colleague, and prior IBM Champion, Keith Strickland’s session on Web Components. He’ll be co-presenting with our own Kito Mann on how to use Web Components to interact with REST services like those provided by GraphNSF.

You can also check out our CEO Peter Presnell co-presenting with the CIO of The Salvation Army Southern Territory about our implementation of GraphNSF to surface all their Notes applications in a single responsive web portal.

For a full listing of all Red Pill Now’s sessions at MWLUG 2016, check out the schedule below. We can’t wait to see you there.

Getting Your Hands On Graphs

Nathan T. Freeman: Tuesday, August 16, 2016 4:30 PM - 6:45 PM

Getting Your Hands On Graphs

You’ve heard about graph databases at the last two MWLUGs; now it’s time to graduate from theory to practice. Nathan Freeman will lead a hands-on workshop to build live graph applications on NSF.

Design Matters 2.0

Bob Kadrie and Keith Strickland: Wednesday, August 17 2016 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Design Matters 2.0

Join Red Pill Now’s Creative and UX Director, Bob Kadrie, and Software Engineer, Keith Strickland as they interview each other in a mock panel discussion of how good design can profoundly impact the effectiveness of the applications you develop.

Rethinking Notes

Thursday 1:00 PM with Peter Presnell and Nathan T. Freeman: Wednesday, August 17, 2016 1:00 PM - 2:00 PM

Rethinking Notes

Join The Red Pill Now Team as they share their latest thinking on how to transform data held in Notes databases. We will challenge your thinking of what is possible with Notes data, focusing on those emerging technologies that excite us the most.

An Introduction to Web Components

Kito Mann and Keith Strickland: Thursday, August 18, 2016 9:00 AM - 10:00 AM

An Introduction to Web Components

Component-oriented UI development has been popular for almost as long as Lotus Notes. The promise is simple: packaged reusable code that makes powerful widgets like grids, toolbars, menus, input controls, and panels, easy to integrate into applications.

The Lotus Position

A Case Study with The Salvation Army USS Clarence White, The Salvation Army USS CIO and Peter Presnell: Thursday, August 18, 2016 10:15 AM - 11:15 AM

The Lotus Position

With 1.5 million members in 127 countries, The Salvation Army has been a long time user of Lotus Notes for both messaging and applications. Like many organizations it is having to decide how it takes its existing investment in Notes and make it relevant in a world that demands mobile access, modern Web interfaces, and seem-less integration between databases. In this session we outline four distinct strategies adopted by The Salvation Army’s US Southern Territory to take a portfolio of Notes applications largely developed in the 1990s and prepare them for use in 2016 and beyond.

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 2025
Tue, Nov 28th 2017 7:24p   Peter
I had an interesting call a few days ago from my long-time friend who sold me my first Lotus in 1989. Apparently Lotus had just announced a few changes. I was informed that Lotus have decided to form a strategic partnership with a Korean auto company (KCL) to manufacture their cars. When I asked why, my friend explained how Lotus had become so unionized they had struggled to remain competitive. Lotus would remain responsible for the design and sales of its vehicles, but manufacturing would be pl

One of the rumors making the rounds at Social Connections 12 was that IBM were getting ready to sell Notes. Today the story behind the rumor became clearer, with Ed Brill announcing that as part of its plans for extending the Notes/Domino platform beyond 2025 they are outsourcing the development for Notes/Domino to an Indian company HCL Technologies to jointly invest in the Notes, Domino, Verse, and SameTime. Ed has put together a video to cover the announcement As part of the development of

Social Connections 12 was held in Vienna Austria between October 16 & 17. Turk Ergun and myself decided (almost at the last minute) to make the trip to Vienna and represent Red Pill Now.

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 3
Mon, Aug 28th 2017 8:04a   Peter Presnell
Notes Is Dead (Or So They Say) Let’s start by dealing with the 800 lb (363 kg) gorilla in the room. Is “Lotus Notes” dead? Well technically yes, because the official name has now been changed to IBM Notes. Many people, including most of us at Red Pill Now, have been heard to claim this is true even if it perhaps it is not an entirely true statement. But its not entirely fake news being spread by the dishonest mainstream media. Red Pill Now estimates that Notes as an applicatio
