This Week in Lotus 028 - Transforming XPages performance
This Week in Lotus    

Episode 28, recorded Friday 26th November 2010, discussing reasons to be thankful, Connections 3.0 GA, Transformer demo, 'classic' applications, XPages performance in the Notes client, the new XPages URL Shortner and more...

Please note: we have started to put times in the show notes for when we start to discuss each topic, in order to make it easier to fast-forward through the show to the topics that are of particular interest.  If you would like us to produce an enhanced podcast (AAC format) version of the show with multiple chapters to cover the individual chapters, please do let us know.

Also, we have made the decision to move to recording this show on Thursdays from this point forward, in order to allow additional time to get the podcast produced and still release on a Friday in time for the commute home (in Europe and America at least). Hope this meets with your approval!

News Topics:


Thanksgiving week - what is your 'reason to be thankful'? (04:24)

Lotus Connections 3.0 GA (07:12)
  • First available to customers, then partners - what were they thinking? ;-)
  • Lots of useful resources, not least a checklist for the upgrade
  • Side-by-side upgrade - makes you realise how good Domino upgrades are
  • Wiki-based documentation - how do we feel about this? Should there still be a straightforward Infocenter?
  • CMIS demo of Luiz Benitez showing integration with Lotus Connections
  • Is there a pilot version of Lotus Connections 3.0?

Transformer demo on LotusUserGroup.org (25:00)
  • What do we think?
  • Is automated process the way ahead?

“Classic” - phrase du jour (37:20)
  • developers are affecting the messaging side with this jihad to create a nomenclature to separate out XPages
  • Mail is still a Notes app (composite and all, people think it is just LS and forms)
  • Would you invest in a messaging platform dubbed as “classic” or "legacy" by the very people who’d sell it to you?

On a related note Jake Howlett’s “Are You A Domino Developer?” survey (40:30)
XPages in the Notes Client Speed - Sean Cull (42:50)
  • aka XPiNC
  • A 80 fold increase in data transmitted to the client over a regular Lotus Notes app

XPages URL Shortner (47:42)
What happened to the XCast? (49:30)

Lotusphere 2011 only 65 days away (51:25)
  • No sign of session confirmations yet
  • Who's attending? Submitted abstracts?
  • What is the Lotusphere Solutions Developer Lab?

Traveler for Android out by the Holidays (57:30)
Tips:
(1:01:45)
Tim Keep an eye out for the new book “Mastering XPages Development” (Amazon UK US) due out in time for Lotusphere 2011 and should be on the bookstall. Written by Martin Donnelly, Mark Wallace and Tony McGuckin with technical review by Maureen Leland and John Mackey.
Pim My tip is about social software. Focus on collaboration, on improving your daily activities. It’s about business value, not a social cool tool.
Tony Use Lotus Sametime.. awareness to see if people are available, send message to see if they can accept your interruption.
Darren This has been said before in TWiL, but Evernote is amazing. I’m using it to sync “notes” between several Windows laptops, my Galaxy S Android phone, my BlackBerry Tour and my Galaxy Tab Android Tablet. I store things like wifi passwords, etc and have them accessible no matter the device I’m one.
Stuart a) Need to know more about Social Collaboration (and specifically Lotus Connections)? Join the Collaboration Matters/Applicable webinar series, starting on December 6th.
b) SSDs rock.  Expensive but worth every penny/cent/dime etc

TWiL - The show must go on!
Sun, Mar 16th 2014 11:51p   Stuart McIntyre
In response to lots of kind words from our listeners, Darren and I are continuing to produce This Week in Lotus on an occasional basis... Whilst there are really no IBM products left that enjoy the 'Lotus' moniker, there is definitely a 'Lotus community' that survives. Given the closeness of the friendships and the enduring sense of kindred spirit, I have a feeling that we'll still be gathering in person and online many years after all installs of Notes and Domino have long since been r [read] Keywords: collaboration domino ibm lotus notes community

I've just been going through some blog and site admin as part of a transatlantic server consolidation and I've spotted that we never posted our final ever This Week in Lotus podcast recording from IBM Connect 2013.
