Turkish Lotus User Group executive team discussed a possible conference in the first quarter of 2011. Possible candidates for keynote have been shortlisted. I have been assigned to pursue speakers and other details. 30-November-2010
I have delivered an announcement to the community about the improvements. We got feedbacks and expectations from our members with a quick survey. Inputs are incredibly consistent with what we were thinking. I have also blogged our intentions and got positive feedback. We are hopeful :) 10-December-2010
I attended partners' meeting in Sapanca. CEE IBM was here. Talked about the conference. Everybody are excited about the relaunch... 13-December-2010
I have sent a long message to Ed Brill and invited him as a keynote speaker. While I was hopeless about his time, after 2 hours, he responded: "Why not?". Team has arranged everything... We set the date! 22-December-2010
Uffe has confirmed to participate as keynote speaker about Social Business. That's another good news. We have announced the conference, Ed's participation and the call for abstracts. People are excited! 27-December-2010
IBM confirmed to be the main sponsor of the event. This is the last phase. It's time to organize a large conference now :)
Today, our new hardware has been sent... Thanks to our sponsors Index and Medyasoft...Paul Mooney, from ILUG helped us about the web site template and sponsorship issues. Great! 3-January-2011
Happy new years! It is going fast. Confirmed figures and conference center with IBM Marketing. Their commitment is incredible. We also decided to organize "Academic Corner" in the conference.
Launched the conference web site... Ed is still incredibly patient to my never-ending requests :) 12-January-2011
Officially started additional sponsorship discussions. No response yet... 21-January-2011
Deadline for speaker abstracts... Bad news: Only one application has been received! This is the first frustration for me... 25-January-2011
We visited the conference place... It seems fantastic.
I am getting a new message everyday. People are very impatient for the conference. Everybody waits for registrations. 4-February-2011
As Lotusphere ends, this is the final attempt for sponsorships. This time I got positive returns. 7-February-2011
Three sponsors agreed so far. We are calculating how much we need. Still short...
We have contacted Jürgen for his participation. That's the session I needed. 14-February-2011
Area is full :) We have confirmed all sponsors. Not short anymore. Registrations can be opened now :)
Last speakers Ozgur and Denis have been confirmed... We are still short in technical sessions. No one wants to do it :( 2-March-2011
Confirmed all sessions. That was very difficult.
Delivered press releases and no one called back. No news, no refferals. The second frustration...
Registrations are failing as well. I think today was the worst day of my journey... 6-March-2011
IBM is working great to push participation. 14-March-2011
Banners are ready. Last visit to the conference center. Everything is going fine except participation. We are depressed... 16-March-2011
Last night... Technical team is working great. We checked sound, presentations, camera, etc.
Registration is better now. We are pleased and excited. 17-March-2011
That's it. It began today. I am really exhausted... Anyway, worth it.
Two critical HTTP problems in Domino 9...
Fri, Mar 29th 2013 6:48a Serdar Basegmez After I upgraded my servers to Domino 9, I have found two problems affecting HTTP task. 1. Redirect TCP to SSL problem... My HTTP task stopped responding just after the upgrade. When I look into thread logs I saw that it was redirecting every requests to the same URL! After a couple of tests, I found that if you have "Redirect TCP to SSL" checked in your Internet Site document, it fails with infinite redirection problem. I posted the issue into the N/D 9.0 Social Edition forum and [read] Keywords: administration

DOTS Deep Dive 4: I can schedule myself...
Thu, Feb 21st 2013 5:20a Serdar Basegmez Finally, we will be able to enable FeedMonster for CollaborationToday project. While doing final touches, I have been challenged by a question: "Can we schedule DOTS tasklets programmatically?" Actually, this is in the wish list for the next version of DOTS. But we can do some trick here. I didn't test this on Domino 9 but it should work. Here is the code: package org.openntf.news.playground.tasklets; import org.eclipse.core.runtime.CoreException; import org.eclipse.core [read] Keywords: domino
DOTS Deep Dive 3: Warning for Deadlocks
Thu, Feb 14th 2013 7:03a Serdar Basegmez Last time, I have blogged about the importance of the importantance of canceling tasklets... In most of the time, canceling a task is a 'choice' you have. You might want to stop the task for a reason. However, a very important problem is falling into deadlocks. If somehow your code falls into a deadlock or stuck situation, that would lock your DOTS container entirely. DOTS uses a basic mechanism for identifying scheduled tasklets that are stuck. Every tasklet starts its life with a pre [read] Keywords: ibm
DOTS Deep Dive 2: Cancel me or I will crash your server...
Wed, Feb 13th 2013 3:53a Serdar Basegmez I just wanted to emphasize an important functionality within DOTS... One of our slides in the recent DOTS session in IBM Connect 2013, we have talked about the "monitor" argument in tasklets. It has two important uses. First of all, you might let DOTS container know about your progress. Second, it allows you to cancel your task in a less-disruptive manner. Let's dive into code here. Our tasklet is running every five seconds and wait 30 seconds each run: @RunEvery( every=5, [read] Keywords: domino
DOTS Deep Dive 1: Art of Scheduling Tasklets
Mon, Feb 11th 2013 4:02a Serdar Basegmez After a successful IBM Connect session, I started a series of posts, based on feedbacks I received from other developers. There was a little thing I didn't test before the session and this issue has been asked a couple of times: Possible conflicts between scheduled tasklets. Unfortunately, current implementation within DOTS is based on single threaded approach for tasklets. There are three different threads responsible in DOTS tasklet container for scheduled, manual and triggerred tasklet [read] Keywords: domino
