I am very pleased to announce the next DC Lotus User Group on October 24th will be a double header with Ben Menesi and Jon Andrews from Ytria and Teamstudio respectively
Both of these companies have played an huge part in providing the tools that administrators and developers use on a daily basis worldwide. I know I have sung the praises of Teamstudio products before and have been instrumental in bringing them to the new companies I work for.
For the first time ever this will be a morning meeting an for more information please check out the meetup site
In addition to showing off their latest wares in back to back sessions, they will stick around for a lunchtime “Stump the LUG” session where we invite you to share your own technical pain points with the entire group and to discuss how you can address them (perhaps with tools you didn’t know you needed).
Here’s what’s in store for you at this must see event:
9:30 AM – Coffee & Refreshments
9:45 AM – Welcome and Quick Community Update
10:00 AM – Session 1: Ytria’s EZSuite of products help administrators and developers deal with a large variety of issues: whether it’s about ACL management, agent troubleshooting, or even replication problems, Lotus Domino often lacks a much needed overview, as well as mass-problem solving capabilities. Using scenarios from the field, we’ll discuss why the tedious and manually-intensive methods you use to address them are due for an extreme makeover. For example, we’ll spend time with alternatives to the well known task of writing agents for data manipulation that you’ll never use again.
11:00 AM – Session 2: Teamstudio’s latest killer tool Teamstudio Unplugged moves them in a new direction by providing a practical and compelling toolset for developers to surface existing Notes client apps as native apps on the iPad and other mobile devices. The Lotus Notes client pioneered secure, offline-capable business applications and Teamstudio Unplugged helps bring that same capability to a new generation of mobile devices. Unplugged cross-platform mobile apps are developed using XPages through the familiar Domino Designer interface, and the platform ships with three pre-unpluggified IBM templates (Journal, Teamroom, and Doc Library). In this session we will demo Teamstudio’s own “Mobile Approvals” template, as well as show you how to customize these templates, for example by adding camera integration for uploading photos.
12:00 – Lunchtime “Stump the LUG” Discussion
