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.

(If you want all 337 slides at over 17Mb, here is the download. If you prefer videos, I did a NotesIn9 covering the SourceTree part.) A blog post would …
