MWLUG 2016 is happening this week, down in I'm-sure-it's-not-deathly-hot Austin, Texas. MWLUG has really proven to be a top-tier conference for our community, and I'm looking forward to it again this year. To be fair, part of that is that I'll be presenting on Friday, with a session entitled "Expand Your Apps And Skills To The Wider World":
The technological world has changed, but the work done by your Domino apps has not. Rather than discarding your old applications in a distruptive process, it is possible to extend them forward into the modern world: native mobile applications, modern web technologies, and integration with new platforms. This session will demonstrate using active open-source technologies to build new, mobile-enabled UIs, run smoothly on Bluemix, integrate with Watson, perform deep reporting with DashDB, and integrate authentication in Connections Cloud. These examples use Darwino for Domino connectivity and app structure, and this session will also introduce the forthcoming Darwino.org open-source community.
This will be something of a followup to my previous sessions about becoming familiar first with Java in XPages and then eventually with Maven. It's an interesting time to be in the spot we are, and I hope to make some sense of one of the paths we can take.
So, please join me Friday at 11:30 - 12:30 (where hopefully we won't be too ravenous for lunch) and all week to catch up and talk shop.
