Dev06. OAuth 2.0 for developers – the technology you need but never really learned
Wednesday, March 23 | 16:00 - 17:00 | E. Pluto
OAuth 2.0 has become the defacto way to authenticate to IBM Connections and cloud services such as IBM Connections Cloud, Google and SalesForce and is *the* way to bridge systems. Despite being very powerful surprisingly few IBM Connections developers actually know of it or enough about it. OAuth 2.0 has been in IBM Connections for many releases and allows other services or API programs to impersonate users – and hence work as the user – without the user relinquishing control of their credentials. It’s very powerful stuff. This session acts as a primer on OAuth 2.0 for developers and administrators teaching you the ropes as well as teaching developers how to start utilizing OAuth 2.0 for IBM Connections on-premises as well as for IBM Connections Cloud. If you are developing for IBM Connections this is for you. Be warned – there will be code…

Dev10. Eclipse Plug-ins in Notes 101, and then some
Wednesday, March 23 | 17:15 - 18:00 | A. Foyer
At the beginning of time, Notes Development was built largely on Forms and Views. While Forms and Views are still the foundation for the modern Notes application, a new kid came on the block a few years ago. One of the most powerful development tools to make its way into Notes development is Eclipse. However, the journey from Forms and Views to Eclipse applications is a rocky one filled with pitfalls and gotchas. To try to demystify the development and installation of an Eclipse Plug-in for Domino, I will provide a sample application start to finish done using Eclipse and Domino.

I have been to numerous events over the years and this was be far the best one I can remember. The structure, venue and content was great.
Wonderful event, one of the best I have been to. Focused on IBM Notes/Domino and Connections. Just what I want.
Theo (and team) did it again ! A very professional conference, with a great value for me as a Customer!
My first Engage, and despite the long travel distance for me, hopefully not the last.
It's a privilege to be able to attend Engage and this year was, most probably, one of the very best out there!!
Awesome event, for sure an organizational masterpiece. Excellent! It's hard to believe the Engage staff is not organizing conferences as principal job ;-)
It was the best event I attended so far. And I attend about 5-8 each year!
2nd time for me attending Engage, but it was incredible again! 2 days packed with extremely informational content, a great venue and a great community!
We did more business and collected more leads during Engage 2017 in Antwerp, than at IBM Connect in San Francisco.
As a first-timer I didn't really know what to expect. The organization of the event positively surprised me!
A premiere event that rivals anything produced by any other organization. Great job...AGAIN!!!
It's a treat to always keep coming back for more! Well done, once again, and look forward to the 10th edition next year!
It is mind boggling to see two people create an event that rivals those put on by larger vendors with dozens of resources.
And huge thanks to Theo and the others for giving me my first international speaking engagement!
Theo is a legend, Theo has style. And he is putting together the best event in this space, year after year.
Engage was my first UG as a speaker and it has developed into arguably the premier user group for ICS in Europe.
Yet again a brilliantly done event. One that is used as the yard-stick by which all other user group events are measured.
Theo and Hilde did it again: Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and the event most successful.
It was a pleasure, due to the efforts of Theo his team, the sponsors, the location and the participants. Much appreciated!
I was extremely impressed on all levels. Thank you to Theo Heselmans for the opportunity to speak at this event!
I’ve been to several of the past Engage conferences and Theo always puts on a great event but this was better than ever.
What can one say about this Engage, Eindhoven, NL. It is in fact THE European user group meeting,...
Theo Heselmans has raised the bar yet again as to what can be achieved with organizing an IBM User Group event.
