The Lotus Position

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Over the years I have had the chance to attend a lot of LUGs around the world including Engage (BLUG), Inform (AUSLUG), and of course there is MWLUG (people call me MWLUG). These events have provided me with the chance to hear from leading Notes Developers and Domino Administrators. But rarely do I get the

Rethinking Notes

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

Red Pill Now has the distinct pleasure of being a Platinum sponsor for this year's MWLUG, being held in Austin, TX on August 17-19. We are also very excited that members of the Red Pill Now team have been invited to deliver a total of five sessions at this event. While IBM seems to have

Co-Existence With Notes

2017-07-28T20:22:16+00:00

In my last post I covered some of Red Pill's thinking as to why we recommend to our customers not to rush to migrate. Ultimately organizations will move away from Notes databases simply because IBM is showing no signs it has plans to invest any further in the platform and hence will eventually discontinue support. So the

IBM Verse: Next Impressions

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

At IBM Connect this week IBM largely focused on its vision for its social collaboration platform Connections. Connections Next While IBM didn't say it, I couldn't help but think that IBM Verse is in the process of being totally integrated into Connections, to the point in which I am not sure if it would make

Automating REST Services For Notes Data

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

At Red Pill Now, we have a strong belief that the future for Notes data lies in the ability to access the data via REST services. In their wisdom IBM have decided to make REST services available for all Notes databases using Domino Data Services. Unfortunately to get DDS to run it is necessary to

Running Notes Applications on a Tablet

2017-07-28T20:22:17+00:00

In The Beginning.... Many years ago, shortly after the original iPad was released I was sitting in a meeting. In one corner of the room was my esteemed colleague Tim "XMage" Tripcony. As the meeting progressed Tim started chuckling a number of times as he "tapped" away on his new iPad. Eventually I asked Tim

LotusScript Next

2017-07-28T20:22:18+00:00

As software engineer I consider the OpenNTF Domino API to have been one of the few great advances in programming for Notes/Domino applications in the past 10 years. Rather than waiting endlessly for IBM to provide some much needed leadsership, members of the community got together and achieved a great many things that needed to

Modern Notes: Future Proofing Notes Client Applications

2017-07-28T20:22:18+00:00

  Of the estimated 10 million IBM Notes applications presently it is likely that the Notes client still acts as the primary interface for over 90% of these applications. That's 9 million applications which are based almost exclusively on Notes client development techniques. At ATLUG's Day of Champions i conducted a 4-minute speed-roaring session ten
