IBM Connect 2014: Must-Attend Sessions for App Developers – Part 1

Here are some of the “must see” sessions for IBM Connect 2014:

SHOW303 – Proper Connections Development for Proper Domino Developers (Matt White and Mark Myers)

Tuesday | 10:30-12:15 | Swan Osprey

This is a session with a mission: to take a much loved IBM Domino app and deploy it to a client’s new IBM Connections environment. We’ll show different solutions such as the use of iWidgets or creating a REST API to make the application available to IBM Connections users and walk you through the process, from beginning to end. If you’re an IBM Domino developer who knows nothing about IBM Connections, this is the session for you.

BP201 – Creating a Mobile Application Framework with XPages (Matt White and Rich Sharpe)

Tuesday | 15:00-16:00 | Dolphin S Hem III

If you create a lot of mobile web applications, you may notice other frameworks such as JQuery Mobile and the XPages Mobile Controls just don’t do exactly what you need. So we created our own, specifically designed for XPages. In this session you’ll learn about the open source framework that’s been have created. We’ll show how it allows you to quickly drag and drop standard custom controls into an XPage to create a mobile application. We’ll also talk about the process of creating an open source project and future plans.

Don’t reinvent the Wheel – (Re)use Open Source Software from OpenNTF (Christian Guedemann and Niklas Heidloff)

Wednesday | 10:00-11:00 | Dolphin S Hem IV-V

OpenNTF is THE open source community for IBM Collaboration Solutions with a focus on IBM XWork Server and IBM Connections. Come to this session to learn about the latest and greatest open source apps, gadgets, controls and other assets developed by community developers, business partners and IBM that are available on OpenNTF.org. We’ll also introduce additional community services OpenNTF provides like the news site for IBM Collaboration Solutions CollaborationToday.info, technical webinars and much more.

BOF – Creating an Open Source Unplugged Mobile Controls User Group

Time and Location TBD

Most User Groups meet up at tangible, real world locations. We’d like to create a User Group for the Open Source Unplugged XPages Mobile Controls Project that would be virtual (mobile) and get input from what developers would like to see included in this project. We will discuss how we can set meeting times and places on a wider (global) scale and discuss what other UI frameworks (Bootstrap JQM etc) have that the current project does not and how we can each contribute to extending this project.Debates on what people have used that have worked well, and not so well as well as performance tips to get mobile apps that use these Controls running faster.

SHOW104 – Practical Java (Mark Myers and Julian Robichaux)

Sunday | 13:30-15:30 PM | Swan Osprey

Take a whirlwind tour of the many ways in which Java can make your life better as a developer. We’ll use Java in IBM Notes, Eclipse, and the latest IDEs. And we’ll show you examples of best of breed libraries that can analyze data, create PDFs, and perform image processing on the fly. Get connected to IBM Connections, access relational data, open sockets, and parse feeds. And along the way we’ll throw in tips for testing, performance, and writing good code.
