Domino Facelift Blog updated with intro topics

On the plane last night, I wrote up the intro materials for the Domino Facelift. The first two articles have been posted.

I’ve got a third that I’m working on today, and I’ll get it posted over the weekend. I’m also going to create some static pages for the long term docs and code downloads. The code is available over there, but it’s currently posted as a blog entry.

By the way, have you noticed Workflow’s new site? We’ve had it in concept mode for about 9 months and never had time to get the content put together. Francie finally pulled us over the top and got it done. Many thanks to her. We’re trying to get her to start an admin blog, but we’ll see.

Lotusphere was great, but it’s sure gotten to be a lot of work. I enjoyed speaking on Monday. Good fun, lots of positive response. Tuesday morning was a bit of a disaster, while the Thursday repeat was much better. My apologies to those of you who suffered through Tuesday. Hopefully, you at least got the concept.

I was going to skip Gurupalooza all together and for the lack of contribution I made…probably should have. There’s lots of real specialists up there and while there were a few questions I felt competent to answer, others knew the topic even better than I. Kind of fun to watch, but I couldn’t help thinking about the people in the audience and their possible reaction to all this…”Who the heck are these guys and why do they think they’re so special? I know just as much as that guy.” At least it would have been true in my case on many topics. Anyway, I respect the other participants as they do know a lot. I’d probably feel more comfortable about the event watching from the audience next time and let the real gurus have at it.

  1. Don’t beat yourself up too much. Yeah not everything worked like it was supposed to. Yeah you guys could have polished up the act better and had more control of your timing. However the concept that you guys put out there personally made me go, “Aha – never thought of it that way, interesting concept, I’ve got to go talk to our Sr. Developer and see what she thinks, hey we could use something like that, etc., etc.”
    Hopefully this year will see some action on the project – do get it up on OpenNTF… Polish up for next year and do a presentation again. This AJAX stuff is still new to a lot of us. Look at XML, there are still people who are just starting to use it and it’s been a TLA for almost 10 years now.
    Thanks again for an eye opening session, hope to see you and Dwight again next year.

  2. So here I was at Gurupalooza. On one side was Lance telling me what he posted above. On the other side was my co-presenter Deb latter saying essentially the same thing. I think I told you both to just enjoy the ride. I was, just like last year, humbled and honoured to be included in such a strong group of people (knowing that there were also a lot of strong people in the audience). And it is an experience I would not trade for anything!

    Nice to finally meet you Lance!

    who won the gloves?

  3. A gal with the moniker of “The Scandanavian Slammer”. I was not present when they found her at Sea World, so I’ve not got her real name yet. As soon as I get back with Jason and Francie, I’ll post it. Hopefully they took her picture

  4. Your new website is awesome! That Francie person sure sounds like a talented and dedicated employee!
