If you’ve attended the IBM Connect conference in recent years, or if you’re part of the IBM Collaboration Solutions user community, you probably know—or know of—Julian Robichaux. He’s a senior software developer at panagenda (an IT management software solutions provider and strategic IBM Business Partner), and he’s been named an IBM Champion every year since 2011.

The Future of Domino is Sapho 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 2/24/17 2:42 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

I promised a summary of the second part of the Opening General Session. And I will include it here, but this posting is mostly about the future of IBM Notes and Domino. It’s based around four separate sessions and lectures about the strategy around and development on the Notes and Domino platform.

IBM Connect 2017 #2: Cognitive Cognitive Cognitive 

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 2/24/17 2:42 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

Last year I was quoted on Twitter saying “If you hated the word social, get ready to hate the word ‘cognitive’.” Boy is that word thrown out a lot by IBM these days. Not least the opening general session at Connect 2017 here at Moscone West in San Francisco.

IBM Connect 2017 highlights the Negative and Emotional Impact of IBM’s Co-Location policy 

By John Head | 2/23/17 6:15 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

The effects of IBM's new co-location policy have hit close to home this week at IBM Connect 2017. I have had numerous IBMers basically say good-bye this week. They either have been given their notice and have no intention of moving, or they see the writing on the wall. Some are even leaving IBM immediately after the conference.

IBM Connect 2017 #1: Moving your Notes Applications to the Cloud  

By Hogne B. Pettersen | 2/22/17 5:06 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

Still in the US, but in a new city, on a new date and with a lot of new things you normally don’t associate with Lotusphere, now known as IBM Connect. The city is San Francisco and the location is Moscone West, a gigantic conference center in downtown San Francisco.

IBM Connect 2017 Opening General Session 

By Volker Weber | 2/22/17 4:40 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

There are two parts, the first was at 10 am, the second part at 1 pm. I find very little in the first part interesting. Watch for Chris Crummey, the guy with the pocket square (Einstecktuch). The second one you should watch from beginning to end. If you are interested in Notes and Domino, that would be towards the end of the video.

Lotus Evangelist: Welcome to NOT Orlando 

By Keith Brooks | 2/22/17 2:53 AM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

IBM Connect, or Lotusphere, as us old people call it kicked off last night with the welcome reception and today with the Opening General Session. This year we break from tradition to visit San Francisco instead of Orlando. Many traditions may not return, but thank God for Ephox and Aussie Night, and Mat. Disclaimer, IBM Champions are invited in advance and are loved by Ephox.

IBM Connect 2017 

By Paul Withers | 2/13/17 1:56 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

With a little over a week to go, IBM Connect 2017 looks set to be as busy as ever. 2016 was a challenging year as a Domino developer, testing the faith and patience of many. My attendance at IBM Connect as a speaker, Business Partner and IBM Champion may seem “business as usual”, but it has not been a straightforward journey. So I hope the experience is as positive as last year but with a more positive rest of the year.

I submitted a topic for Alan Hamilton's IBM Connect Hackathon which takes place the day before the event. It was accepted, my team "Domino Tweets" is good to go! Our Motto : Stay at the pub longer, we'll tweet you if we need you, love your Domino Server!

The Famous Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie 

By David Leedy | 1/26/17 2:43 PM | Community - Events / People | Added by Oliver Busse

One of the many legendary things from the conference once called “Lotusphere” was the “Pretzel Cookie” that was provided in the box lunch on the last day. If, like me, you’re not able to go to the conference this year but don’t want to miss out on the famous cookie I present to you 2 options.
