Engage 2019 was even busier than normal for me, so I’m going to split out the debrief of my sessions from a blog post about the conference itself. Similarly, I’ll cover the OpenNTF round table on the OpenNTF blog. There is some overlap, particularly as the OpenNTF round table reinforced personal views, had some synergy …

Preparing for HCL’s Domino: What The Community Needs to Know

Following on from my last blog post it’s also a good time to assess the readiness of the community for the future. I blogged last year about the importance of community to the product, and I reiterate that importance. But that didn’t make any value judgement on the health of the community.

OpenNTF GitHub Process Enhancements

Since it was founded in 2008, GitHub has become a significant site for open source. It’s evolved over time with a lot of ancillary functionality, many areas of which I’ve not had much experience of.
