Podcast: Mobile AppDev Strategies with Graham Acres

On this episode of Taking Notes Julian Robichaux and I talked with Graham Acres, of Brytek Systems, an IBM BP in Canada, about how to develop a strategy around mobilizing your applications in the enterprise.

Graham discussed mobile strategies in general as well as his own personal experiences, including:

  • Deciding which devices to support
  • Working with users and business units
  • Defining how the mobile app will work, and what it will look like
  • Problems with networks, firewalls, and device settings
  • Dealing with “bring your own device” policies
  • Choosing a toolkit
  • And more…

Graham gave a Lotusphere session on this topic, and his slides can be found at the Brytek Systems website. You can also follow him on Twitter at @gacres99.

This episode runs 36:48.

Lotusphere through the eyes of Instagram

As I mentioned in my last blog entry I will be using the iOS Instagram app to capture photos throughout Lotusphere 2012. If you are an Instagram user you can connect with me using the screen name “belgort”. For those of you not attending Lotusphere who want to see a collection of all Instagram photos tagged with #ls12 you can go to http://elguji.com/instagram.nsf/ls.xsp to see the latest 20 photos being captured. The page auto-updates the photos every 60 seconds.

Special thanks to Serdar Başeğmez for his help with some Dojo magic. We will be making this app available on OpenNTF after Lotusphere.

Enjoy!

P.S. – I also did a similar page for the CES show.

Three bullet points to market XPages: What would your three be?

For those of us who have used IBM XPages we know what the platform can do and what it can’t do for that matter. What I would like to hear from you are three bullet points that you would include in a presentation, product slick or other marketing collateral to describe to those outside of the world of IBM, what XPages coupled with the Domino server are and what they can be used to develop.

What are your three bullets?

UPDATE:

Try and not refer to the Notes client, email, calendaring etc. Think new developers who are looking for an app dev platform for social, mobile, enterprise.
