Tue, Jun 30th 2015 11:56a   Richard Moy
Each year at the annual MWLUG conference we focus on a theme. This year the theme is "Transforming Collaboration Through Innovation." Design creates innovation by forcing changes on how we perceive and think. Design controls how effective we communicate to users. IBM have been focused on bringing design innovations to products like IBM Verse. We are so fortunate this year to have Phil Gilbert from IBM Design speak about the importance of design for software followed by Kramer Reeves discussin

And it is Still Alive and Kicking

About a year ago, it was reported to me that all the kiosks that we help develop for the Take Flight exhibit at the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) in 1995 were removed and replaced with newer kiosks. I was very sadden to hear this. We developed three different types of kiosks, two outside the 727 and one inside the plane and installed into the back of each seat in the plane. My colleague, Robert Burton developed a compiler using C and assembly that was originally used for developing our

What Does it Mean to me to be an IBM Champion
Mon, Dec 22nd 2014 10:10a   Richard Moy
For the first time ever I was selected as an IBM Champion for 2015. I honored to be selected. I would like to thank everyone who nominated me and selected me. I have been given this honor but it is the ICS community that should accept the honor. Without our wonderful ICS community events like MWLUG can not happen. When Gregg Eldred and I started the MWLUG conferences, neither of us thought it would last this long. But it has been the wonderful community that includes not only IBM Business

More Fun Creating Dojo widgets and MVC
Fri, Oct 3rd 2014 11:12a   Richard Moy
Here is another article in my "Fun with Dojo" series. Dojo traditionally has been considered slow. One reason is that Dojo loads alot of modules before it instantiates the page. Dojo with AMD helps reduce the number of modules when it first loads but not the number of modules. This is great. However, one thing that I really dislike are Dojo Dijit widgets. They are heavy, slow, and require a lot of modules to be loaded. We like the Bootstrap widgets because they are lightweight. So inste

The Good, Bad, and Ugly about AMD in Dojo
Thu, Oct 2nd 2014 11:16a   Richard Moy
We were testing iPhora Touch 2 with the attendees of MWLUG 2014 in the MWLUG portal and as usual, the interface had issues even after having outside users provide feedback before we rolled it out. When you are so focused on the creation process it hard to see issues until it is seen by fresh pair of eyes. So we are working on a new faster and improved interface for iPhora Touch. This is the evolution of any product. Since we are using a JavaScript/JSON Restful API approach most of the changes

Why an Ideal MVC Framework Fails
Wed, Oct 1st 2014 9:13a   Richard Moy
One of the "Next Big Things" these days is the use an MVC framework for developing Web applications. There are a number of MVC frameworks out there including Backbone, Ember, and the rapidly growing Angular. Ideally these MVC frameworks are great, hook things together and any changes to the model (data) and all the views are updated based on the controller code. If there is changes to the model, the data is automatically updated on the server. This is the ideal case. However, it assumes on

Don't What it, Hitch It
Tue, Sep 30th 2014 10:13a   Richard Moy
Async callbacks and closures is an incredible thing about JavaScript. This is what makes environments like nodejs possible, a topic of many blogs to come. Many of the JavaScript frameworks like my favorite framework Dojo have the ability to deal with closures and callbacks. One of the issues that one needs to deal with is getting a handle to the current scope within a closure. We discussed this and how to deal with it in Dojo in a previous blog. http://dominointerface.blogspot.com/2014/03/

Installing Nginx Reverse Proxy on CentOS for Domino Our Experience
Mon, Sep 29th 2014 12:12p   Richard Moy
Over the past few weeks there has been a significant number of discussions about Domino and the lack of SHA-2 support. Jesse Gallagher had an entire MWLUG 2014 session on this very topic. When I ask Jesse to present on this topic, unbeknownst to me what a hot topic this would become and so timely. First, IBM should have fixed these problems years ago. For us this is a critical issue that if not addressed will kill the market for Domino. Thanks to Jess efforts and contributions, there is a w

Gotcha, Creating Dynamic Script Blocks Using SSJS
Thu, Sep 25th 2014 10:11a   Richard Moy
For our iPhora applications we only use one XPage and dynamically create the content that appears. We do this by storing the dynamic content in Notes Rich Text fields and using SSJS to read and generate the HTML/JavaScript during runtime. Since we are moving to an single page MVC model, we were adding a few addition xp:scriptBlock to generate the initial loader and pulling the information from a NotesRichText field. We were using doc.getFirstValueString('richtextfield') to pull and create
