How I got started in XPages development! – My first steps into XPages were daunting because of how much I felt I didn't know, how far behind I thought I would be and how steep I was afraid the learning curve was.  I am happy to report that I am glad I took those first steps and am quite excited about using XPages.  I will explain my background in Notes, the resources I have used to become familiar with XPages and then demonstrate some XPages features and discuss the things that I find really powerful in XPages compared to traditional Lotus Notes development.

8.5.x Domino Server Availability and Tuning
Do you want to keep your Domino servers available 99.999% of the time? Is part of that goal to minimize cost and take economic advantage of what's new in Domino for Release 8.5 on? There are capacity planning and administrative actions, design decisions as well as a lack of ongoing and proactive tuning practices that threaten those goals. Gleaning from the struggles, successes and failures of several enterprise deployments using the latest Domino features and configuration options, this session will yield a vital list of items that may need
correction as well as procedural changes going forward.

John Curtis – IBM
