What a week – my personal take aways from and

In fact my week of travels and great meetings started on Wednesday March 12, with 3 Days coaching on customer site in Geneva. Working with customers on a concrete XPages project and guide them to make it first time right is always inspiring. And if there is a Java crack in the project team, you should be well prepared. But its lot of fun and the challenge is to open your ears and learn.

The same is with conferences. I had great meetings with the community. But the best thing was to see how important OpenNTF has become to the community. But there is one thing I want to share. We contributed POI4XPages to OpenNTF because I belive that this project can make the difference. We have become feedback around the globe via mail, but its an incredible feeling, when somebody stand in front of you and says “Thank you for POI4XPages, I use it daily”.

I think the IBM Collaboration Community is something special. Take a look at this great picture from Oliver Heinz (@oliheinz):

Travel 2 bcconSpeakers, IBM Champions and IBMers traveling from to and have a picnic stop. Its raining, it’s wet and cold, but we had a lot of fun! Would you expect this?

But what have I learned on and

  1. All want to play with this new child called IBM
  2. XPages App Dev is an absolute hot topic in europe! The App Dev sessions where really good visited
  3. Developers are now ready to go to the #free1352 path
  4. We have to work with the Domino Admins that they do understand, why OpenNTF Essentials will not harm their servers

And I cant wait unitl April, to start play with my new project called “Patterns for automated build and testing with Jenkins, Maven and Selenium”

When you start to code, what music is in your ears? My current favorit is a german song called Augenblick from Söhne Mannheims.

What’s your favorit?

First Swiss XPages Developer Crowd Day

Yes, it was a huge success. The Event-Room of WebGate was full of XPages Developers from Switzerland. One of the reason was, that we had the pleasure to meet Martin Donnelly and Eamon Muldon from the IBM XPages Team. The other reason is the DNA of Domino / XPages Developers. It seems that collaboration and sharing of knowledge is a key factor in this community. So we could have an open discussion across the border and boundaries of company and personal interest. During this special moment we were all only XPages Developers with a passion for good Applications.

Is it the right time to establish an event similar to XPages and Beer, which is a success around the world? Yes we think so. I’m working with several people from the Swiss XPages Developer Community to make this happen. The open discussion and the sharing of knowledge and experience was in the past a success factor and will be in the future a success factor.

Stay tuned for a next update.

I’m currently on travel. I was this week in Geneva and will be next week at the and the I would love to meet you there.

And I’m still living without my E-Mail Folders! My life is much easier.

See you!
