First-time speaker at Collabsphere here!

For obvious reasons, I have not been in Collabsphere before. This time it was all online and they nicely accepted my session proposal, so I made my first time in this conference.
Richard Moy and the Collabsphere team has done a significant work by gathering a great line up and organizing a flawless online conference. Thank you!

A New Life Ahead

In 2003, I left my job and started looking for a better one. I wasn't quite happy working for a corporation and I wasn't the employee of the month either.  However, after a series of coincidences, I end up with a brand new laptop waiting for a long bus ride to a resort near the Mediterranean Sea.

After a great conference, I have just been able to prepare session materials. Sorry for the delay but I had to complete the documentation for the demo application I have used in the REST session.

Back from Engage!

Again, it was an incredible user group conference! Thanks to Theo, Hilde and all others helping to the team, we had fantastic time with so many friends for a couple of days. There has been so much things to be said, but I'll use the advantage of late blogging: Many friends blogged/tweeted/posted a lot of stuff on every moment of the conference :)

I'm back from ICON UK 2015. My fourth UK tour and it was a great conference! Thanks to Tim Clark and his friends for their incredible efforts on the conference.

I had a session again this year. But it was a bit difficult session for many people. I got back and thought about what I can do to make it more useful for other XPages developers. Since I have used Prezi for this session, I decided to add Voice-Over to the session :)

6 months ago, I accepted my problem. As many developers, I was working on several different XPages projects in different times. Using a couple of Java classes over and over again. Each time I add a new method/modify an existing one, I was copying and pasting code between several applications. Versioning was a nightmare.

"I have my own extension library..." »

This time, I skip the "...after a loooong time..." and "...sorry for not blogging frequently..." stuff, and directly jumping into the topic :)

Lately, I have been working on developing my own extension library for different applications on a client. I started with putting a couple of Java libraries, utility objects and managed beans, but it evolved into a very cool project. I want to talk about it, but not now. Today, we will talk about a boring topic, Dojo.

In my plugin, I had one problem to solve. For my client, we have developed a set of databases that holds several different type of records about the internal processes. For more than 10 years, users get used to use specific UI patterns for these structures and some habits cannot be broken easily :)
