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.

Red Pill Now is pleased to announce it is partnering with Darwino, adding Darwino to Red Pill Now’s growing portfolio of best in class solutions, consulting, and development services focused on enhancing your investment in Notes data. What excites me the most about Darwino is its unique approach of replicating data between Notes databases and SQL data stores, providing the best of both worlds. Replication has long been a key differentiator for Notes and it is interesting to see the opportu

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 3

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

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 2
Mon, Aug 28th 2017 12:37a   Peter Presnell
For those of you who have read Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 1, I have a small confession to make. I do not really own a yellow 1989 Lotus! I wish I did, as it would have been really cool to turn up to Lotusphere each year in one of those. What I do own is a 2011 Lexus RX 350. Its a really great car, but being six years old now it does have a similar story to tell as a 1989 Lotus.I have tried to keep up with maintenance but even the latest GPS upgrade doesn’t have the street on whi

Lessons Learned Replacing Lotus: Part 1
Fri, Aug 25th 2017 4:17a   Peter Presnell
Back around 1989 I became a Lotus enthusiast. Yellow even became my favorite color. While I never got to the point where I would dress up in a yellow suit, I would describe myself as somebody who would bleed yellow. With my Lotus I could do almost anything. I could proudly proclaim Lotus Knows how to get me safely to and from work. Lotus Knows how to get me to class on time. Lotus Knows how to get me home safely from the pub of an evening. Lotus Knows how to find a parking space within walking d

Red Pill Now @ MWLUG 2017
Fri, Aug 18th 2017 6:11a   Peter Presnell
As a CEO of an IBM Business Partner there is always a positive feeling that comes when being able to support a User Group event such as MWLUG. Its a chance to give back to a community that has helped us all in our earlier careers. It’s a chance to not only finance these events so that the cost to attend is modest, but also a chance to be part of an ongoing conversation about our community and to share some of expertise with others following in our footsteps. This year we had our largest co

What We Learned at MWLUG 2017
Wed, Aug 16th 2017 8:02p   Peter Presnell
Richard Moy and team put together another great User Group event in Alexandria, VA last week. Its an event that falls half-way between the annual event once known as LotusSphere. This year’s event set a new attendance record, including a large contingent of IBMers allowing all to get the latest information and news for all things Collaboration (ICS). The following are the key take aways that I noticed as a former Notes developer still passionate about finding future paths for Notes data.

MWLUG – The Perfect event at the Perfect time
Fri, Jul 28th 2017 8:07p   Peter Presnell
For CIOs who oversee an active portfolio of Notes/Domino applications it is now clear they have a need to develop a strategy to transform their investment. IBM is moving on from the platform that has served many of us well for 28 years. The path forward has been less than clear. There has long been a hope that a magic button would appear capable of taking an aging collection of Notes applications and make them relevant in 2017. A quick simple solution does not exist and CIOs must chose between t
