My IBM Connect Sessions

This year I am lucky enough to be rather busy during the week at IBM Connect, so here are the details of the formal sessions. I'll also be working a shift or two on the OpenNTF stand and probably visiting the Teamstudio stand quite a lot to talk Mobile Controls. So if you see me please come and say Hi.

SHOW303 - Proper Connections Development for Proper Domino Developers (with Mark Myers)

Tuesday | 10:30-12:15 | Swan Osprey

This is a session with a mission: to take a much loved IBM Domino app and deploy it to a client’s new IBM Connections environment. We'll show different solutions such as the use of iWidgets or creating a REST API to make the application available to IBM Connections users and walk you through the process, from beginning to end. If you’re an IBM Domino developer who knows nothing about IBM Connections, this is the session for you.

BP201 - Creating a Mobile Application Framework with XPages (with Rich Sharpe)

Tuesday | 15:00-16:00 | Dolphin S Hem III

If you create a lot of mobile web applications, you may notice other frameworks such as JQuery Mobile and the XPages Mobile Controls just don't do exactly what you need. So we created our own, specifically designed for XPages. In this session you'll learn about the open source framework that's been have created. We'll show how it allows you to quickly drag and drop standard custom controls into an XPage to create a mobile application. We'll also talk about the process of creating an open source project and future plans.

BOF - Creating an Open Source Unplugged Mobile Controls User Group

Not sure on time and location yet

Most User Groups meet up at tangible, real world locations. We'd like to create a User Group for the Open Source Unplugged XPages Mobile Controls Project that would be virtual (mobile) and get input from what developers would like to see included in this project. We will discuss how we can set meeting times and places on a wider (global) scale and discuss what other UI frameworks (Bootstrap JQM etc) have that the current project does not and how we can each contribute to extending this project.Debates on what people have used that have worked well, and not so well as well as performance tips to get mobile apps that use these Controls running faster.
