Last week I traveled to Washington, DC to participate in the AdminDev2012 conference being sponsored by The View. In addition to delivering two sessions on XPages, I was also part of a keynote panel of “IBM Champions”. All in all the conference was an excellent opportunity to interact with IBM ICS customers. I also had the opportunity to sit in on some great sessions being delivered by the other speakers.
The conference was also a blast from the past as there were several people who stopped by the conference to participate in the Washington, DC Lotus User Group. It was great to see Kevin Pettitt, Jack Dausman, David Gursky, Chris Byrne and many others.
Here are the slide decks from my sessions. Let me know if you have any questions about them.

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.
