The board has just sent out the following email to contributors, which we're cross-posting on a blog to catch as many people as possible. 2018 – personal summary 

By Rainer Brandl | 5/24/18 5:29 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Theo Heselmans and his team again organized a great event in Rotterdam at the SS Rotterdam with a lot of news – especially for IBM Notes, IBM Domino and also IBM Sametime. HCL presented almost all features coming in IBM Notes V10, we have been waiting for years. Just one feature is missing ( or I did not see/hear that ):

Our slides from Engage 

By Sandra Bühler | 5/24/18 5:28 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

The last two days at Engage were very busy and the event went very well. Theo and Hilde set once more the bar of how events should be run and were the perfect hosts. The two days were filled with sessions, roundtables and meetings around the IBM ICS stack as well as a analytics related track.

Engage Week & Lots of News 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/24/18 5:25 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

This week was the Engage conference held in Rotterdam – the largest and (IMO) best event Theo Heselmans has given us yet. Rotterdam is a lovely city and the water taxi that took us from the restaurant back to the boat last night turned a 5 minute ride into a James Bond chase sequence – at several points he took corners by tilting the boat almost entirely on its side (there goes Tim!) and then onto the other side (bye Mike!) before pulling a handrake turn and reversing up to the dock – worth every cent of four and a half Euro.

The Engage Experience – Take Two! 

By Milan Matejic | 5/24/18 5:24 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

This is my second time attending the Engage Conference and for the 10th year anniversary of the event, Theo has chosen Rotterdam, Netherlands. The following is my brief summary of the conference.

Engage Debrief 

By Paul Withers | 5/24/18 5:20 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

The last few days at Engage have been very interesting and extremely useful. The event began on Monday for me, with Red Pill Now’s Take-5 Modernization workshop. The event was very well received, reinforcing my experiences from the face-to-face Domino Jam and since, namely that design thinking is a powerful and effective approach for engaging a diverse set of individuals to achieve better answers to more complex questions.

Engage 2018 recap 

By Andrew Magerman | 5/24/18 11:58 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Engage 2018 was the best Engage I’ve ever attended. Not only was the organisation and venue superlative, but the recent energy of the new HCL team was infectious.

Engage 2018 / Domino App dev

After missing last year event, I’ve returned to Engage conference, which was this time on decks of SS Rotterdam (unsurprisingly in Rotterdam, Netherland). While many things were familiar, like smiling faces of people from ICS community from all over the world, many things were different this year.

First impressions from Engage Conference in Rotterdam this week 

By Daniel Nashed | 5/23/18 5:25 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

Just back from #engageug. The conference was the best conference I have been for a long time! Beside the great venue on the cruise ship the HCL sessions technical session and specially the round tables have been a big positive surprise for me.

Quick tip: test HTML pages on a local webserver with NodeJS 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/14/18 4:10 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

At a customer we are building lots of microservices with Spring boot which runs on Pivotal Cloud Foundry hosted at the Azure platform. Some of these microservices are called from web pages with certain specific information, like field info. So in our projects we have most of the time a test html page to mimic the actual behavior.

Watson Workspace Integration into IBM Connections Cloud 

By Paul Withers | 5/14/18 4:09 AM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

I’ve made no secret of my liking for Watson Workspace. Recently the first part of integration between Watson Workspace and Connections Cloud has gone live. This is integration from Connections Cloud to Watson Workspace. The details are in the IBM Knowledge Center. Currently this comprises two areas of integration.

GDPR and IBM Connections / Docs On-Prem 

By Sharon James | 5/11/18 5:52 AM | Business - Social Business | Added by Oliver Busse

At IBM Think back in March, the Connections Offering Management team promised us some information to help with GDPR compliency. The Connections Cloud information has been available for a while and the On-Premises docuemtation was on the way. Today my friend and fellow IBM Champion Roberto alerted me to the technotes that are available.

Path To A Perfect 10 #perfect10 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/10/18 12:38 PM | Business - Social Business | Added by John Oldenburger

Here’s an intro to a new blog series I am starting to hopefully take us all through preparing for v10 of the ICS products due out later this year. If you have suggestions for what you’d find useful outside of the things I mention in the video please let me know. I’ll be using the hashtag #perfect10 for this.

Quick tip: run your Cloudant data everywhere with CouchDb 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/10/18 12:31 PM | App Dev - Cloud | Added by John Oldenburger

I moved our HR Assistant application to a Spring boot to run everywhere, but the data was still stored in a Cloudant database running on IBM Cloud. No problem, but not that flexible. So I was looking for a way to to store the data somewhere with minimum impact.

Repost: "On The Shoulders of Giants - How We Learn" 

By Paul Withers | 5/10/18 12:25 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by John Oldenburger

Today, I came across via Twitter a blog post from Gab Davis, community and IBM Champion legend – and I make no apologies for calling her that, because she is. The blog post concerned me a lot because our community is lauded – rightly so – as being generally more helpful, more collaborative, more open than other IT communities.

Upgrade Notes Domino HTTP Passwords Domino Directory to Version 3 (V3) 

By John Oldenburger | 5/9/18 9:00 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Kenio Carvalho

During the past period, in addition to my developer tasks, I have also been assigned the administrator tasks for Notes Domino. One of the tasks that I recently performed is the upgrade of the HTTP Passwords in the Domino Directory to version 3 (V3)

The Champion & Confidence Dilemma 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/8/18 4:26 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

I wanted to share today something I’ve been dealing with for a few months and inspired by shares from others. For those of you who don’t know the IBM Champion program, in short it was set up to acknowledge the work done by people who contribute to their Community outside of their regular jobs.

Importing an SSL Certificate Authority into the JVM 

By Devin Olson | 5/7/18 3:29 PM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by John Oldenburger

Java code running on a Domino server (or from within a Notes client) can reach out and pull in information (such as with a REST API, or an HTTP GET) from an outside source. Due to the Notes/Domino security model, all of these communications must occur over an encrypted (HTTPS / SSL) channel.

Command line tools are always welcome. Today i need to setup my MAC to work with IBM Cloudant

An Introduction Into Configuring Domino for Docker 

By Gabriella Davis | 5/2/18 5:04 PM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

9.0.1 FP10 brings support for Domino on a docker platform. You may know that docker is a container solution but what does that mean and how could it affect your Domino infrstructure? In this session we’ll review how to install and run Domino in a docker container, whether it can support external clustering and the decisions to consider when designing container architecture.

Domino & Spring Boot: ScheduledTasks 

By Sven Hasselbach | 5/2/18 8:55 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

When developing Spring Boot applications running on Domino, there is a feature which runs out of the box and makes developers happy: ScheduledTasks. These are the equivalent for agents, but they are running directly in the HTTP task (which allows to access the complete Spring Application at runtime).

A small open source project: Cloudant REST API - elstar IT 

By Frank van der Linden | 5/2/18 8:54 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by Kenio Carvalho

I got an idea to provide a Cloudant REST API, with the same endpoints of the Domino API but storing everything in Cloudant or CoucheDb. Which results in a Spring Boot application. All the endpoints of the Domino REST API are available in this new REST API.

NSF ODP Tooling Example Project 

By Jesse Gallagher | 4/29/18 5:01 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

This project demonstrates how to use the tooling to create an XPages library project and build an NSF that uses it within the same Maven tree. This example project also serves as a reasonable template for the standard kind of project setup I make for Domino nowadays, minus a compile-time test plugin (which I'll probably add in eventually).

NSF ODP Tooling 1.0 

By Jesse Gallagher | 4/28/18 6:14 PM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

A couple weeks back, I started a new project, and today I decided to declare it a 1.0. The premise of this project is simple: I really, really hate Designer. Since the original post, it's expanded into a set of tools that cover three main tasks

Navigators and RepeatTreeNodes - A Brain Dump 

By Paul Withers | 4/26/18 10:02 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by John Oldenburger

In an application I was extending, I wanted to use a Navigator component that worked very dynamically. It was to replace nested repeat controls. The Navigator has a RepeatTreeNode and it seemed a reasonable approach to nest them.
