DCLUG – October 24th – Toolfest Double Header – Teamstudio and Ytria

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

http://www.meetup.com/DC-Lotus-Professionals/events/141113842/

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

Adding Teamstudio Configurator – Alternate method

Update March 2014

See the comment at the bottom of the page for updated links and/or contact your Teamstudio rep to find out the most up to date links

I LOVE TeamStudio configurator – always have, probably always will

For some reason though (probably permissions or firewall related) I am unable to do the installation via Drag and drop from the website. I drag and drop it – and nothing happens…

Add Configurator 29 Problem

So I figured out a work around and here’s how I did it – might not work for everyone but it might. This also provides an interesting insight into the process and how everything is interwoven in this process.

Right clicking on the Configurator icon and copying the link address gives me this

http://ftp.teamstudio.com/Edition29/en/update/widgets/extension_configurator.xml

Looking at the file I find the ftp root for the 29 update

http://ftp.teamstudio.com/Edition29/en/update

Going there I found the site.xml and that is the one I was looking for

I am assuming it is the same steps for any of the other products which appear in the site listing but I have not yet tried them.
