Domino and RAD

  • What is RAD?
  • Does RAD always equal GOOD? (as in good development practices and outcomes)
  • Are RAD solutions single page apps?
  • What place does RAD have in the Enterprise?
  • Has anyone recently had a RAD challenge?
  • What did it (RAD challenge) prove?
  • The Spanner! Is XPages the only choice when it comes to web development on Domino?

Lotusphere Comes to You has officially gone …is this the precursor to the rename?

  • This years events have been less Lotusphere and more IBM marketing, is this what the people expect?
  • So what could LS12 be called?

Classic is back and getting some comments on Ben’s blog

SugarCRM buy iExtenstion CRM

  • I wasn’t expecting that!
  • Sugar6 has “Activity Streams”
  • Seems everyone is adding these

Darren’s Twitter Battle over support

  • Should new browsers be supported via hotfixes or am I a senile old codger?

Google GMail slow downs

  • Ah the whisp, white fluffy cloudness of it all
  • Clouds are usually slow…maybe we need a nomenclature for “speed”
  • LotusLive Tornado
  • GMail Cyclone
  • Give the user some expectation of speed

We’d be remiss not to mention the release of Connections 3.0.1

  • Renamed to IBM Connections
  • Added:
  • “ideation”blogs
  • Multi-media support (is that even a word any more?)
  • Moderation tools


David Leedy: Free LUGS:  Pac LUG, UK LUG, IamLug, MWLug. So for the people, networking and information.  This week in Collaboration?  “Stuart Translates the World According to Darren”

Matt White: The XPages Toolbox project on OpenNTF is a great tool for performance profiling your XPage applications: http://www.openntf.org/Projects/pmt.nsf/ProjectLookup/XPages%20Toolbox
Oh and…. This Week in Denial. Ben Poole on the LDC Skype chat also suggested This Week in <Prince Squiggly Symbol> as well

Mat Newman: WildFire! 😉 … AusLUG, there is a Lotus conference coming to Australia, details will be announced shortly, keep an eye on auslug.org and follow AusLUG on twitter  … TWiL, hmmmm

Darren: Go listen to the Get Social Do Business podcast from Lisa. We’re often a tad myopic in the Yellow Submarine and this is good, not necessarily Yellow view of the social world. And yes, she forced me to pimp it 🙂

This Week In Clofuscation?
