Was That It?


As expected, IBM came out with a series of announcements today. I already had a low set of expectations for what would be announced. But even then I still found myself profoundly disappointed with how little was actually released. Today IBM announced they were extending support for Notes & Domino to 2021. By my calculations IBM has generated

The Future Of Your Notes Data


Since I published my article Reading The IBM Tea Leaves just over a month ago we have been involved in a lot of discussions with customers and business partners about what happens next with Notes applications. There have also been significant discussion within the community following MWLUG, an event at which IBM allowed itself to get behind

And Its Still Only Wednesday


It seems to be getting harder and harder for technologists to stay on top of all the announcements, especially as they relate to the collaboration space. This week has been no exception with a number of major announcements being made. Monday: Skype Teams Details have started to appear  that Microsoft on are developing their own competitor

Earlier this month Red Pill Now had the chance to introduce Kito Mann to the Lotus community when he co-presented with Keith Strickland at MWLUG - An Introduction to Web Components. JavaOne might seem a strange place for a Front End developer to attend, but Kito's background was originally in the areas of JSF and

The Event As always MWLUG has been an awesome event thanks to the amazing efforts of Richard Moy and his team. There were many familiar faces, but there were some new faces as the mid-west slowly expands further south and further west each year to arrive in the center of Texas. This was my first

The Lotus Position


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
