Lotusphere’s top topics this year are mobile, social and web browser. One keyword is being peeped and posted these days that shows which technologies Lotus provides to support the main topics: XPages!
Did I catch your attention? Do you want to learn more about XPages and their capabilities? Then start digging deeper. The links provided below lead to valuable sources.
Wikipedia – What the heck are XPages anyway?
XPages.info – Get started, downloads and tutorials
OpenNTF – Open Source XPages projects which can be used out of the box
XPages.tv – Source for random XPages stuff
XPages Blog – XPages development and more
What does google say?
That should get you going. If you are one of those old fashioned lads who needs to hold a piece of paper in his hands. Here you go. IBM Press just released a book called “Mastering XPages: A Step-by-Step Guide to XPages Application Development and the XSP Language“.

Anyone missing on this list (I am sure there is)? Just give me a hint and I’ll put her/him on.
Since I recently dropped my Blackberry Bold and now operate a HTC Desire HD I moved from BB Enterprise Server to Lotus Traveler. It works well, but I really miss a Sametime client I got used to on my Bold.
So, my wish: Sametime Client for Android
I know that there are workarounds, but they are just workarounds. I rather wait for IBM to deliver a native solution. Believing rumors it won’t take long before IBM ships such a client. So let’s wait and see what’s being announced at Lotusphere 2011.
Another couple of days and the yellow community will leave their homes for the biggest yellow convention in the world. The headlines this year will certainly be xpages, project vulcan, announcements to Lotus Notes/Domino 9.x, mobile applications and support and social software. But what is going to be the BIG BANG this year?
Project vulcan wasn’t as big a bang last year as Quickr and/or Connections had been the years before, so to me, IBM are under pressure to present something bigger this year, aren’t they? So what is it this year?
Bye bye Notes Client (web and mobile technologies will be the future)?
See ya Lotus Script?
Hello Vulcan prototype?
What do you reckon? What is going to be this year’s big announcement?
PLUS: Who is going to be the special guest in OGS? My guess: Brad Pitt! Why? Don’t know, just came to me. So what’s your guess?
Registration gates are open for next year’s Lotusphere! My first Lotusphere ever was, let me think, this year and all I can say is: AMAZING. There is nothing comparable in the world if you are interested in the Lotus Brand. I will definately go next year to inhale the athmosphere, meet many great people, learn a lot of new things and hopefully sell some stuff.
So, if that was not convincing, here is what other people say about Lotusphere.
If you need good arguments to get a couple of bucks from your boss check this out.
Anyway, I am already excited and can’t wait to go. Hope to meet you there.
