OpenNTF - OpenNTF on Twitter 

By OpenNTF | 11/17/17 8:38 AM | App Dev - Open Source | Added by Oliver Busse

When the free non-production Domino server license was launched on developerWorks earlier this year, it brought that area of developerWorks to the conscious awareness for possibly the first time. I looked at the "Communities" sub-page and, in particular, the "Social" area near the bottom on the right. That highlighted that there were Twitter feeds being publicised that were not being maintained. That needed addressing.

Creating Alexa Skills with OpenWhisk and IBM Watson 

By Niklas Heidloff | 11/16/17 4:43 AM | App Dev - Cognitive | Added by Oliver Busse

My first code pattern (formerly known as developer journeys) has been published on developer.ibm.com/code. The pattern describes how to build Alexa skills with OpenWhisk. Rather than using intent and entity identification from Alexa, Watson Conversation is used. This allows developers to define conversation flows declaratively and developers can reuse conversations that are available in the Bot Asset Exchange.

By Richard Moy | 11/14/17 1:16 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by John Oldenburger

The recent announcement by IBM to continue the development and support for the IBM Domino platform indefinitely was great timing for part 2 of this series. This series is about the direction that we are taking Domino. This journey has taken more than five years with many different designs and experiments to get to where we are.

Develop a Domino application using any modern tools 

By Philippe Riand | 11/13/17 1:26 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by John Oldenburger

In my previous post, I talked about a ReactJS library of components that can be used to create Notes like UI. It allows developers to create modern web and mobile UIs in a flash. Fine but, if Domino Designer is a great tool for rapidly developing applications, it is unfortunately not designed to create such modern applications.

Life sign / Major update for Domino JNA on Github 

By Karsten Lehmann | 11/10/17 11:56 AM | App Dev - XPages | Added by Oliver Busse

Wow - I haven't written a blog post in the last 9 months! It's just so much easier to write a Tweet than to produce long articles, when I split the week between three customers and my family with two children. Just wanted to let you know that we are alive and kicking and still doing very much Domino related work! :-)

Wishes for Notes-Domino 10 

By Ben Langhinrichs | 11/9/17 8:13 AM | Infrastructure - Notes / Domino | Added by Oliver Busse

With all the talk, whether optimistic, pessimistic or snarky, about Notes/Domino 10, one thing I haven't heard much is what people wish would be in there. Yes, it will be a new version. Yes, it will be a strong affirmation to those companies still using Notes/Domino that product support will be around for the foreseeable future.

Jazoon is a tech conference in Zürich which manages to bring brilliant speakers to talk about a particular subject - on Friday, 27th October 2017 it was Artificial Intelligence.

You are a Connections / WebSphere admin what do you care about Domino? I hear people ask – well actually I care a lot .. I use these products every day – I can’t do my job with out Domino / Verse / Notes and Sametime.

IBM Verse on Premises Integration with Connections and Docs issue with iNotes_WA_Security_NonceCheck 

By Christoph Stoettner | 11/2/17 2:23 PM | Infrastructure - Connections | Added by Oliver Busse

During the week we integrated IBM Connections and IBM Docs in our test environment and everything worked fine. Then we moved the configuration to production and most of the stuff was working, like showing Business cards, profile pictures and Connections files to add into mails. Docs Viewer and uploading files from a mail to Connections generated an error: “because of an internal server error”

Composing With Docker 

By Eric McCormick | 11/2/17 10:24 AM | App Dev - Web | Added by John Oldenburger

About a year ago, I blogged on automating server upgrades with Docker and a BASH script. This met the needs I had at the time, and worked itself out to be pretty stable. But, since I think about such things and always question my preconceptions, I went down a path of creating a Docker compose config file, something I wouldn’t have had to create from scratch by waiting a little while as one appeared as an example from GitLab.

Last week Christian Güdemann published new release of SmartNSF on OpenNTF that contains cool new feature that Christian tweeted before. With new CUSTOM strategy it allows direct execution of Java code from REST API defined in router configuration. It's even better than it sounds as it initializes facesContext and XPages application if needed, so even access to beans works.

A Warning Tale for Presenters

One of the aspects of Social Connections that I meant to include in my blog post summary but forgot was the issues around wifi access. No matter what a venue says about their readiness, it’s an aspect that I’m sure is virtually impossible for conference organisers to check or test beforehand.
