01. From zero to Enterprise2.0 hero - how to make social software stick in your organization

Social software is one of the big news stories of the past couple of years. The rise of social technologies on the Internet has meant that individuals can collaborate and share knowledge faster and more easily than ever before.
Companies are now embracing social software (as 'Enterprise2.0'), but many organizations see roadblocks, policy issues and lack of adoption hindering the success of such projects. Stuart will face these objections head on and discuss strategies to ensure your social software project makes you an Enterprise2.0 hero!

02. eCommerce is growing by more than 30% per year ! Why and How to enter the e-World with your existing Lotus products

03. Mail environment management and retention policies
These days users are receiving more and more mails and most users do not longer have the time to keep their mailbox in a good shape, meaning to remove all unnecessary mails. This results in mailboxes on servers that are always increasing in size...
However diskspace is getting a lot cheaper these days (and additional possibilities like DAOS), it still makes sense to keep the mailboxes size as low as possible.
Question is how this can be achieved in a simple way, without users losing all their important data, and how such actions should fit into the information lifecycle management a company should have.
Within this session we will explain a possible solution based on 2 actual implemented business cases, where, after a certain period, important mails are moved to a cheaper archive system, and unimportant mails are deleted. The presentation will explain the basics of the ILM for KBC, how this fits with the provided solution and the resulting impact on the infrastructure, the users mailboxes and the users behavior. Also the business change process will be discussed , which is one of the most important tasks in such a mail policy project !

04. DAOS

Are your servers running out of disk space? Do you have more than one bit like attachment stored in your databases? Does a standard task like fixup lasts for ages or does your backup still runs during working hours? Do you have quota enabled and your users are asking for more space?
If you can answer one or more of these questions with YES, than this session is for you.
Maximize the disk space savings provided by Domino Attachment and Object Service (DAOS) and ensure that your environment is properly configured for best performance with this feature. Save more space by simply enabling design and document compression. Make sure that your attachments use best compression too. Reduce network bandwidth when replicating databases between servers and increase mail quotas without using more disk space.
Target audience is administrators or decision makers who want to know more about some older but not yet used space savers and especially about DAOS.

01. Ten XPages Design Patterns

There are certain functions that appear in all of your Notes and Domino applications that you'll want to implement in your new XPages projects, in this session we'll walk through how to implement them, and then at the end of the session you can take away the code and use it when you get back to the office next week. The examples we'll look at include how to implement a Dialog box, link together combo boxes, allow people to login quickly, post an AJAX request and more. Using these examples we'll go for a quick, but deep dive into how XPages work in the real world.

02. Are your Domino Web Apps Secure?

You probably answered yes, because Lotus Domino is a Secure Web App platform... But did you think of input validation/ sanitation? Are you sure your services are only accessible to authenticated users? And did your admin deploy the app the secure way?
This presentation is about the latest and worst Web App vulnerabilities and how to prevent them in your Lotus Domino Web Apps. Be prepared to be confronted with the opposite to your answer of my question about the security of your Web Apps!

03. Make Your XPage Apps 'Pop!' with CSS and Themes

Why re-invent the wheel every time you build a new XPage application? Learn how to make your websites look great using CSS Frameworks, and save even more time by using Themes to get a consistent UI that can be applied to multiple XPage applications in minutes. We'll look at using the IBM oneUI CSS framework and the lighter Blueprint CSS Framework.
We'll also focus on how to detect the browser type and how to provide custom CSS for mobile applications.

04. Advanced JavaScript – Fundament for Great XPage Applications

Do you want to develop first class XPage applications? Come and learn to leverage JavaScript to its full potential. Hear about:
- core language features like loose typing, default and guard operators, first class functions, lambda and closures,
- object-oriented, but class-less JavaScript with prototypal, parasitic and (pseudo-)classical inheritance,
- dynamic objects with public, private and privileged members,
- object literals, constructor functions and more ways to create objects.
Profit by JavaScript’s strengths and avoid its numerous pitfalls (like semicolon insertion, for..in, with and typeof). Discover useful and reliable patterns like power constructors. And find out, why style is so important in JavaScript.

05. What Does 'Accessible Websites' Mean And How Do I Build Them With Domino

EU-Legislation demands 'accessible' websites, often leaving details or exact specifications on what that means out. In this session, we will have a look at the most often cited 'specifications', the Web Content Accessibility Guidelines (WCAG) 1.0 and 2.0 and how to interpret them. I will show a few free tools that can help a Notes Developer to asses what needs to be done to make a website 'compliant'. And of course I will offer quick tips and easy to implement 'hacks' to make an existing web application more 'accessible', sharing along the way a few best practices and experiences from the work I have done so far. And of course, there will be code examples both for 'old style' Notes web applications as well as XPages.
