In this session we're going to take a close look at Sametime 8.5 - you've heard about it but do you need it and if you do how do you deploy it? We'll start right in and take a look at the new Meeting Center and Proxy Server in detail and then look at each of the server components talking about what each one does and how they link together. Finally I'll show you some infrastructure options and some limitations of the current 8.5 release you really need to know about. . This session is going to move fast and cover a lot of ground but hopefully by the time we're done you'll have a lot better idea of what you need and how you're going to get there.

Find your users by location -- on the client, on the web, or on the phone. Do lookups based on GPS, IP address, and even WiFi hotspot. Map it, track it, put it on a graph. Interact with other location-based services to let people know what's going on around them. And how the heck does Google always know where I am, anyway?

This session will begin by looking at current hurdles for getting existing applications mobilized. What currently works, what doesn't work and why. Then, using XPages, we will mobilize an application in 30 minutes and show it running on a Blackberry and iPhone. Finally we will deploy the application on Teamstudio Unplugged, a Notes client for Blackberry showing advantages of using apps stored on the device and less reliance on the data network.

Notes and Domino applications are all too often constructed with every bell and whistle imaginable -- both because they are there for us to use, and to show off our development prowess. In this session, we'll bring role-appropriate minimalism to the table by introducing one application that fits the way several people work. With more than twelve demos illustrating the programming and development concepts, this session is guaranteed to give you great ideas about how to make your Notes and Domino applications shine! If you follow our advice, your applications will start to work for your users at just the right level of complexity - instead of the other way around!
Plans for ND 8.5.2, LotusLive, and a Project "Vulcan" update
You’ve heard buzzwords like single-sign on, single userid, or authentication management, but also heard that they were a nightmare to implement. Or perhaps you always wanted to use another directory - like Active Directory for your Sametime, Web, IMAP or Traveler password authentication but thought it required a 3rd party tool or something installed on the Domino server? In this session we'll show you how to configure your Domino server to authenticate with either the HTTP Password or the LDAP directory password without a server reboot! We'll extend that idea to demonstrate how with a little bit of magic and a sprinkling of Tivoli Directory Integrator you can get closer to that simple single userid or directory system you’ve always wanted.
Prevent, identify, and fix the most common performance problems in Domino applications!

Learn how to trace slow performance in existing applications, including an open source tool to reveal what Notes is waiting for when you see the yellow lightning symbol. Emphasis is placed on balancing performance, maintainability and functionality.
Domino is full of ways to help you identify potential problems and possible pitfalls.

There are certain functions that appear in all of your Notes and Domino applications that you'll want to implement in your new XPages projects, in this session we'll walk through how to implement them, and then at the end of the session you can take away the code and use it when you get back to the office next week. The examples we'll look at include how to implement a Dialog box, link together combo boxes, allow people to login quickly, post an AJAX request and more. Using these examples we'll go for a quick, but deep dive into how XPages work in the real world.
Are you ready to throw off the shackles of legacy code? Longing to realize the dreams of The Enlightenment? Tired of hearing "let them eat Sharepoint?" Then storm the Bastille with us and join the Xpages Revolution. We'll open your eyes to a new way of thinking about collaborative applications, showing how to push the boundaries of this exciting new development approach and build solutions you never would have thought possible. New scalability techniques, greater code flexibility, and entirely new interface modes make Xpages the most exciting opportunity in Notes and Domino since replication. We'll show you how to use the new Xpages Extensibility API to achieve outcomes that stretch your imagination.
