My IBM Connect 2014 sessions

It’s been a very busy fall and christmas for me so I haven’t bragged about being chosen to speak at IBM Connect 2014 on my blog besides creating a new static page for the event that will – eventually – sum up what I’m up to at the event. I am fortunate enough be have been selected to speak in two sessions – one with my good buddy Mat Newman (aka Yellow Man) and one solo. Below are the session IDs (probably subject to change), the session titles and the abstracts.

BP301 An Introduction to Working with the Activity Stream

The future of business is social and the activity stream is the way events and messages are communicated in the social business. In this session, you’ll learn all there is to know about the activity stream including exactly what it is, just how many streams there are, how to adopt the concepts to business applications and how to submit to the stream from other applications than IBM Connections. You’ll also learn important concepts such as submitting events to other people and as other people. This session is for you if you want to start working the activity stream but are unsure just how to get started regardless if your favorite development environment is JavaScript, XPages, Java or even the plain vanilla HTTP based REST API.

BP309 Next Generation Project Management: Collaborating Inside and Outside the Box

Working within teams challenges individuals to connect, coordinate and collaborate to achieve a successful outcome. Often, this involves managing vast amounts of information and tracking progress which traditional forms of communication struggle with. The Solution? IBM Connections! We’ll demonstrate how IBM Connections revolutionizes the way teams work by: connecting with appropriate expertise, communicating more effectively, coordinating effort effortlessly and collaborating productively from both inside and outside the box.
