CollabSphere 2019 Beauty Contest is Now Open


The new buzz word that has become more and more important is SECURITY. But, why is that? Security should always have been up and front and center. The Domino platform has always been at the forefront in terms of security from its inception. The new HCL Nomad (Domino Mobile App) platform brings this security to your mobile device. But let's face it, Notes apps are ugly compared to modern mobile apps. In June 2019, HCL launched the HCL Design Project called "Template Experience" to transform and modernize select Notes templates. To encourage the Notes/Domino community to unleash the potential of Notes and Domino V10, CollabSphere has joined forces with OpenNTF and launched the CollabSphere Beauty Contest. This global contest encourages you the developer to show your potential in transforming an ugly duckling to a beautiful swan. So get your thinking caps on, design skills ready and transform the ToDo template into a beautiful but secure app.
Go to https://tinyurl.com/y5qkw99k for more information about the contest and to download the contest template.
Winners will be announced at the CollabSphere 2019 Opening General Session on October 29, 2019 in Hilton Woburn, MA.

Security and Compliance is NOT an Option! - MWLUG/CollabSphere 2018

Time and time again developers create cool applications that users love.  Whether it is a web or mobile application their primary focus is on the UI and user interaction.  From the design and user-ability perspective that it is important.  However, majority of these applications are designed and built  without the consideration of data security or whether it compiles to government compliance and regulations.  Including security and following government dictated regulations seems to be an after thought. 

Data security and compliance should not be an after thought, but part of your core design.  So as part of MWLUG/CollabSphere 2018, we have an entire track focused to Security and Compliance.  


We hope to see everyone there at CollabSphere 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel in Ann Arbor, MI from July 23 to 25, 2018. To register go to http://collabsphere.org/ug/collabsphere2018.nsf/register.html.

Node.js Comes to MWLUG/CollabSphere 2018

As I said in my previous blog, Node.js with Domino v10 brings significant opportunities to the ICS community whether you are an IBMers, IBM Customer, IBM Business Partner, ISV, developer or administrators.

I have talked to a number of individuals and they feel there is a lot of potential for them.  IBM will be releasing two different betas.  The second beta will include the Node.js integration with Domino.  I wished it was included in the first beta. I would have love to test the Node integration earlier.  We have been waiting for the Node integration to extend the power of our iPhora platform.

In preparation for the up and coming Node/Domino launch, we are providing an entire series of Node/Domino sessions and discussions at MWLUG/CollabSphere 2018 starting from the basics to the more advanced use of Node in Node-Red along with JavaScript sessions which will be critical for the development of applications with Node.js.

We hope to see everyone there at CollabSphere 2018 at the Sheraton Hotel in Ann Arbor, MI from July 23 to 25, 2018. To register go to http://collabsphere.org/ug/collabsphere2018.nsf/register.html.
