I’ve been busy recently founding my own company hedersoft. There was no time left to blog or tweet a lot since administrative tasks ate it all up. Now things are getting back to normal and I’ll do my best to save some time to share my thoughts.
Anyway, hedersoft as an IBM Business Partner focusses on XPages. We will make basic applications and modules available as OpenSource and publish them on OpenNTF. Lars Buntrock started with his “Database Open Dialog” and I uploaded “hedersoft tweet” just yesterday. This application consists of 5 custom controls, each of which can be used seperately or together as a basic twitter application. These controls are:
- OAuth authentication control
- “All Friends” stream
- “Mentions” stream (@Replies)
- “Direct Messages” stream
- Status Update control
Wired together it looks like this:
We nominated the twitter controls for the 2. XPages Development Contest. Feel free to download the controls and play around. They are OpenSource released under Apache Licence v2.0. If you have any feature requests or defect reports then please post them on the project page on OpenNTF.
I am so proud to announce that hedersoft lauched their homepage today!
Who is hedersoft?
hedersoft is a new company located in Salzkotten, Germany which provides services and sells products based on Lotus Notes / Domino. The company was founded in August 2011 by Lars Buntrock an myself (Henning Schmidt) and focusses on XPages. That is products based on XPages as well as services based on this exciting technology.
Both Lars and I worked for We4IT (sponsor of the XPages Dev Contest) until we resigned in August. We felt it was about time to stand on our own feet and hence decided to found our own business. We are very dedicated to the OpenSource community and will upload lots of stuff to OpenNTF. Lars already did so by handing in his Database Open Dialog to the XPages Dev Contest in August.
So, there is lots to expext in the upcoming months. We have just started and have so many ideas that are only waiting to get processed. One of thoses is getting our homepage translated which definitely couldn’t be done in the last couple of days. So stay tuned and stop by every now and then to see how the business evolves.
