When I first saw that Notes V11 wouldn’t come in a Norwegian version, I thought it was a mistake on the slide. Turns out it’s not. Vote to prevent this!
The Norwegian IBM Collaboration Usergroup is putting on the first Nordic usergroup seminar Stockholm on June 11th and 12th! Here are the five best reasons why you should join!
As usual the Engage usergroup conference was a highlight. Here’s my summary and how to keep Norwegian roads safe with Domino!
I woke up this morning to a text message telling me that my plane was cancelled. Stuck in Brussels an extra day. What to do?
I spent this week at the Engage conference, which this year took place in Belgium. I gave a presentation yesterday about a solution that my colleagues at iSi have made. People went “wow!” when they saw it. Which was nice, and I sent them a message telling them that they had impressed people.
The venue was the awesomely cool museum Autoworld, with a huge collection of vintage cars and vehicles.
The conference is focused on the collaboration tools from IBM, like Notes/Domino, Sametime, Connections and others. It also deals with third party tools that interacts with these systems, as well as general talks on user adoption, development and administration.
Over 400 people were at the conference, and as always it was a wonderful opportunity to meet old friends, make new friends, engage in discussions, learn, teach, make contacts, make deals and just having a good time. So once again: Thanks to Theo & Hilde for another awesome event.
But I woke up this morning to a message telling me that my plane was cancelled, and that they had re-booked it for me tomorrow. So I had to extend my stay at the hotel one more day. I’m not even sure if SAS will cover it, since this was because of an air traffic control strike. This means it’s out of their hands, and is deemed to be an unforeseen event. EU regulations stipulates that they won’t have to compensate me then.
It also means I will spend our constitutional day (our 4th of July if you will) on planes on my way back home tomorrow. That’s one holiday down the drain. Bummer.
So I spent the day walking 15 km around downtown Brussels, taking in the sights. And I stopped at watering holes every now and then, where I took out my computer and worked on the photos I took at the conference. After four stops, and a little work back at my hotel, the photos were finished. They can now bee seen in my photo album on flickr. You can also see some photos of the car exhibition, as well as some photos of the world famous Atomium building.
I will write a blog posting about the new stuff I learned in the coming days.
Sometimes users are blaming Notes for problems that isn’t really Notes’ fault. Here’s how I fixed a ten minute startup time, for both my client and the Designer.
Yes, you read that right! You can now go to Apple App Store and download IBM Domino Mobile Apps, to start running your Notes applications on your iPad. Without any need for any development! And you can run them offline!
Finally we can reveal the agenda for the ISBG Nordic Spring Seminar in Stockholm June 11th and 12th!
Yesterday IBM held a presentation about the continuous road map for Notes. Highlights: Cloud customers, you are no longer forgotten and you will get all the good stuff! Oh, and: Bye, bye Eclipse.
