If you’re following Lotusphere and if you sent in abstracts you know that Friday was abstract-reply-day. I too got my replies and keeping with tradition I would like to tell how it went. I sent in three abstracts and had two of them accepted. I’m honored to be co-presenting both sessions with IBM’ers – one session with Bob Balfe and one with Ryan Baxter. Both sessions are on plugin development as you might imagine.
Jumpstart Your “Jedi Plug-in Development Skills” with the Masters
Two hour jumpstart session on Sunday with Ryan Baxter.
Come to this session to get up and running on plugin development for Lotus Notes, Lotus Sametime and Lotus Symphony and learn the ropes to get started. We will take you from getting the Eclipse IDE and Lotus Expeditor Toolkit installed to configuring, testing and verifying your setup. Next you will learn the basics of plugin development and based on real life examples you will see just how easy plugin development can be and how to reap the rewards. As there’s no good in having great plugins if they never reach user workstations we will finish of the session with end-to-end information on plugin signing and widget deployment. This is a must see session it you want to get started with plugin development but never knew how.
How the Jedis do plugin development
One hour regular session with Bob Balfe.
So you did your first sidebar plugin for Lotus Notes and deployed it to users but now you’re stuck… If you want to do more with your Lotus Notes or Lotus Sametime client, you want to learn cool extension points, learn best practices and see real life examples then this session is for you. Learn about object contributions, fly the magic carpet and do OAuth authentication from plugins. This is how the Jedis do it – may the Force be with you!
