I totally forgot to mention this…
I happy to say that I’m going back to BLUG again this year presenting on one of my favorite topics that is widget development for IBM Connections (Easy as Pie – Creating Widgets for IBM Connections). I’m presenting on Friday at 12.30. The overall conference agenda looks very good and I’m looking forward to going back to Antwerp to present, network, learn and talk about OnTime.
The OnTime crew will of course also be available to talk about OnTime Group Calendar and OnTime Meeting Manager and all the various interfaces.
I’ll fly in on Wednesday afternoon and will probably be sampling the local brews that night – see you there.
Here’s the presentation from Dannotes in PDF format (in Danish).
I’m at the Dannotes user conference today (Danish Notes User Group) doing a demo of Lotus Foundations, how to install it, how to configure it and just how easy it is to configure Domino on it. Should be fun.
So I did both my sessions at Dannotes yesterday and then went very well. The sessions were back to back which was a little exhausting but I managed. My first session was on the business card system in Sametime from a developers point of view and the second was on composite applications. Only a minor Notes UI screw-up in the latter session when adding components to my composite application using the Composite Application Editor (CAE). Good thing I rehearsed the demos so I had the Notes URL’s cached in the dropdown.
I would share the presentations I used. The presentations are in Danish so they may of limited used to non-Danish speakers… 🙂
Although from JavaPolis 2005 this is still a very nice presentation by one of the gurus in the field of API design, Joshua Bloch. The presentation runs about 70 minutes but is well worth it.
Summary: “A well-written API can be a great asset to the organization that wrote it and to all that use it. Given the importance of good API design, surprisingly little has been written on the subject. In this talk (recorded at Javapolis), Java library designer Joshua Bloch teaches how to design good APIs, with many examples of what good and bad APIs look like.”
