In this session Carl Tyler will take you on his adventures of working with Lotus products for over 25 years. In between stories of his adventures, Carl will provide demonstrations of some of the older products and how some of the features have evolved to become what they are today.
Speakers: Matt White Track: Development
When you create an XPages application for the first time, OneUI seems wonderful. But the shine quickly wears off... what about mobile, or plugins from the Internet? In this session we'll look at some of the leading alternatives and how they can be used with XPages. You'll walk away with samples of using Bootstrap, KendoUI, jQuery UI in XPages. We'll also look at how to choose which framework to use and what happens when your chosen framework goes into maintenance mode!
Gremlins. Every environment has them. Some suck the performance from your servers. Some wait for the worst possible moment to sabotage the system. Still others silently create gaping holes in security. Learn from the experts how to be a Gremlin Hunter. See how to use the database catalog to find risks in ACLs. Use Cluster Analysis to find potential problems before you lose access to data. Create a custom view in the Fault Reports database that can make you a hero. Find out what to look for in your Domino directory that can slow server reboots and stop mail from routing and make troubleshooting it a nightmare. Discover how to take abstract symptoms like "Notes is slow" or "transactions are timing out" and break it down into a resolvable problem. See the methodology and tricks involved to find the true culprit zapping your servers of performance by using tools such as NSDs, semaphore debug, memory dumps, call stack analysis, and server monitoring. Learn how to put activity logging and trends to work for you to find the hot databases on your servers and how obsolete tuning parameters can inhibit your servers from using all resources. This session will be packed with tips you won't want to miss. You’ll learn how to unravel the mystery of how to debug performance issues and free up resources from buried contention and will also take away a thorough checklist of items to inspect, along with how to document, prioritize and address them.
Speakers: Tim Tripcony Track: Development
In the early days of Lotus Notes, most end users had no home computing experience. Today, nearly everyone has a laptop and a mobile device -- if not several of each. Applications developed behind the firewall must now compete for users' mindshare with their daily use of Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and other publicly available services that they perceive to be modern. Providing user experiences that delight users, regardless of their screen resolution or physical location, can seem like a daunting task... but it doesn't have to be. This session will take you on a tour of XPage components that make it easy to develop -- and maintain -- compelling, modern user interfaces.
Speakers: Richard Sharpe Track: Development
This session takes a tour of the XPages Mobile Controls, showing how to use and test them on smartphones and tablets by actually mobilizing an existing Notes application during this session. The same application will be mobilized using both JQuery Mobile and a new Mobile XPages Controls Project from OpenNTF. The pros and cons of each framework are discussed using the single application as example.
While Traveler is nice, it isn't a full featured MDM and your security/HR/legal teams may require a full MDM for your mobile devices. In this session we will review several MDM solutions, examine on-premises/cloud/hybrid MDM's, and how BYOD may affect your choices. To assist you with your own MDM review, we will provide you with the criteria and methodology that we used to select one for our environment. Finally, you will leave with our "Lessons Learned."

Speakers: Paul Calhoun Track: Development
From IBM Champion Paul Calhoun: PDF’s have become a necessity in almost every application development environment including Notes/Domino and XPages. Unfortunately the available commercial tools can be expensive and still require developers to write code to provide custom solutions. Apache FOP to the rescue! FOP is an open source library that will allow developers to take XML input (like the XML from ?ReadViewEntries) or custom XML and apply an XSLT formatted stylesheet to it that contains PDF output instructions to create a PDF document. This session will guide participants through the complete setup, configuration and implementation. Source code of all example will be provided that can be used as templates for duplicating the solution in participants projects.
With all the talk about BYOD, mobile strategies and cloud computing, too many folks seem to forget that their enterprise network was designed to reach their data center, NOT the cloud or a host of mobile devices. We'll take a look at the essential points you (and, perhaps, your network team) need to understand about supporting mobile and cloud users, we'll talk about a few self-inflicted wounds experienced by others (so that you can avoid them), and you'll be prepared for a smooth migration back home.
Speakers: Jerald Mahurin Track: Development
IBM Connections is a powerful enterprise social platform built with IBM's "OneUI" standard for its theme and other appearance and behavior cues. Like most web software, you will want to make some modifications to the user experience - colors, layout, login screen, logos, etc. While ti would be great for there to be a single place to make all these changes, the fact is that there's a lot more to it than your typical HTML and CSS. You have to know where to put it! In this session we'll work our way through the maze of UI customization, explaining when to use CSS, when to modify JSPs, when some JavaScript is needed, and most importantly where all this happens!
Your users want to collaborate, so how do you provide that ability within your XPages applications without coding from scratch? Troy and Kathy will show you how to take advantage of existing collaboration capabilities and integrate them with your apps. They will begin with a simple integration of XPages and TeamRooms. Next they will demonstrate more complex integration, using XPages to surface data like files and activity streams from IBM Connections and SmartCloud Engage, using the IBM Connections API.
Learn how you can leverage the data in your existing on-premises or cloud systems (Domino, LDAP, AD or Connections) to provision users in IBM Smart Cloud for Social Business. We will provide a basic introduction to TDI, demo how to connect to multiple data sources and create users in IBM Smart Cloud. Whether new to TDI or experienced veteran, this session will help you prepare for the supersonic jump to the cloud.
Replication is one of the most important pillars of the IBM Notes and Domino Architecture. Whether you're an administrator or developer, replications plays an integral role in your life, and let’s face it, this relationship has its ups and downs. These two industry experts will reveal how its underpinnings work, what can go wrong, how to setup and manage selective replication and why, how to best consolidate cluster and standard replication, how to benefit from PIRC, what traps to look for and how to get out of them once you’re caught, the impacts of server and database security and field level encryption, and more. Join us to learn about tips, tricks and code that will help you debug and tackle the toughest replication problems (conflicts, ghosts, inconsistencies etc…) like a pro. The speakers will share numerous stories, best practices and mistakes to help the audience prevent or solve problems like selective replication anomalies, deletions stubs, parent-response problems and more. At the end of this session, you will walk away with an in depth understanding of how the replication engine works, and you'll be ready to turn this sometimes tumultuous relationship into a harmonious and happy one.
Speakers: Chris Toohey Track: Development
Gamification is altering the way users interact with enterprise applications. By creating an adaptive user interface based on user experience metrics and other gamification principles, we'll take you through how XPages can be used to help onboard new employees, educate employees on new business process, and improve user engagement, data quality and ROI. Learn how you can make any application easy and fun to use and implement these techniques within a week of getting back from IamLUG!
