Social Enterprise Debate

As developers get more comfortable with XPages, one of the steps is to start to using the Compute on Page Load option instead of the Compute Dynamically option for Server-Side JavaScript.

My Plans for Lotusphere – What I think Will Be Hot

So I’m at Lotusphere now, my plans for this year are learning and being social. So what do I think will be important for XPages developers over the next year? The first is Java. Server-Side JavaScript is powerful, but Java is something I’ve embraced over the last nine months because it offered me more. That’s …
