Podcast: Learning XPages with Mark Myers and Matt White

Based on his recent blog entry about learning XPages, we brought Mark Myers on the show to discuss his approach to wrapping your head around XPages, especially coming at it as a person with a strong Java background. Matt White was also on the podcast to offer the perspective of someone who has been helping people learn XPages for several years now. We discussed things like:

  • NOT thinking of XPages as “another Notes design element”
  • Coming to XPages from the Java developer perspective
  • The amount of learning resources and help available now versus a few years ago
  • Using Java and server-side JavaScript (SSJS)
  • Some of the struggles that newbies might face
  • And more…

Mark and Matt are both members of the London Developer Co-op, and they have graciously renewed the TakingNotes discount code for XPages101 online training courses. If you go to the XPages101.net website and sign up using the discount code “taking notes”, you will receive a 33% discount off the list price of your subscription.
