6 years a Champion !!

I recieved an email yesterday – just before I joined a live stream to watch the IBM Champions for ICS be announced.

On behalf of IBM, it is my great pleasure to recognize you as a returning IBM Champion in 2017. Congratulations!

I am so honoured to be amongst a great group of champions again. I have been an ICS IBM Champion since the program began in 2011.

Being an IBM Champion is all about being part of a great extended  community, sharing knowledge, giving feed back and constructive critism and helping IBM with what ever they will let us help them with – from documentation to ideas about Connect.

In my 6 years of being an IBM Champion .. I have made some great friends and been introduced to some great IBMers (who I now class as great friends), helped influence some products, given a lot of honest feed back, and assited with my favourite thing – Documentation 🙂 It really has been a blast .. and I would still continue to do these things If I wasn’t a Champion 🙂

Being an IBM Champion doesn’t mean you have to be a *yes man/woman* – It just means you are passionate about what you do and have the right attitude – that doesn’t mean agreeing to everything, being constructive, giving feed back and ideas is part of being a champion which is why I love it.

 

So thank you once again IBM and especially to Amanda and Libby for everything they do for us Champions .. and I hope to be worthy of this title for the next year 🙂

I am Running for Feel the Force Day …. My partner in crime Sam will be joining me again this year, along with Jonathan and Mandy will make up the #TeamRun4FTFD to raise funds. Jonathan has cerebal palsy and he doesn’t let that slow him down. Mad on trucks, cars and any kind of awesome vehicle (just see Shaw on Tour for details), he has recently done a bunch of exciting stuff including running (in a race chair), ice skating and trampolining. Mandy is the biscuit queen Famous for her

Let’s get Stitch talking – Project #talkie pt 3
Mon, Jun 5th 2017 2:41p   Sharon Bellamy
So after building the kit and testing that it worked .. It was time to get creative .. there are some examples on what to do code wise on the AIY kit voice site First I had to go through the billing set up and processes. Even though the code is free, and the kit is free and they give you $300 worth of credit – you still have to set up billing. It was a pain as I already had a cloud dev account for some of the APIs I use on bit of my sites, but eventually I worked it out – I may have

Building the AIY – Project #talkie pt2
Sat, May 27th 2017 11:55p   Sharon Bellamy
Before I could attempt to get creative with the code examples – we first had to build the kit and make sure it worked with the things and code that was provided. I have used the images from the aiyprojects.withgoogle.com/voice page. They are great pictures and show step by step how to put things together, I may have forgotten to take step by step pics as we built it too. Prep the SD Card With the voice SD image we downloaded in pt1 – use etcher to flash the SD card and get it ready f

On May the 4th (also known as StarWars day – you work it out) one of my good friends and former co worker (not sure how he put up sitting opposite me for 2 and a half years ) Mr Dave Sheryn pinged me with an interesting link to a starwars costume competition .. “That’ll be fun”, I thought, “will give it ago .. have a snowballs chance in hell of winning” – so I posted this pic of me With the message O well if we are showing off star wars costumes .. thi

What’s all this #talkie stuff about then? So I have been posting stuff on facebook twitter and instragram with the #projecttalkie or #talkie hash tag .. Most of you know that I costume .. and as well as my love for star wars (and my mandalorian costume), I also LOVE to costume as Stitch … You can see me here as my favourite fluffy blue alien experiment (626) with my good pal and all around lovely Captain America friend Mr James Budd. Again most of you know that i am a HUGE supporte

Migrating Connections DB from Oracle to DB2 part 3
Sat, May 27th 2017 8:48p   Sharon Bellamy
In part 3 of the series we will actually attempt to migrate the data. Migrating Connections DB from Oracle to DB2 In my experience the database migration is always most time consuming, so I always do the database first Use the text file of Commands that we created in part 2. Back up the exisitng Connections databases Drop database, create database, app grants (for homepage also initdata, and re org and run stats) CR update scripts Pre DB fixer script Run the DBT command Application specific s

Docs 2.0 CR2 – here we go again
Sat, May 27th 2017 8:05p   Sharon Bellamy
I am blogging this mainly so I remember how to solve this Big thanks to fellow ICS community member and all round great guy Robert Farstad for blogging this Again you can see a problem when patching Docs 2 to CR2 as it can’t find the FQDN of the hosts. The code has changed so it’s not possible to use the work around that we had previously. There is a slight twist to getting it to work which Rob has explained fabulously so thank you mate .. you saved me a lot of grief .. and even IBM
