Want to learn XPages?

Then you need to check out at least two great business partner sites with some awesome videos and tutorials:

http://xpages101.net from Elguji Software

http://xpages.tv a series of free video tutorials

The first site is actually a company that does in house training and also offers development services and solutions with XPages.  These sites are very well known in the Lotus bubble and in my opinion are invaluable to anyone interested in learning this great technology.  With XPages you can not only create great web based applications but starting in Notes 8.5.1 you can also create some pretty compelling applications for the Notes client – a true write once use everywhere architecture.

  1. Bob,
    Thanks for the mention. Really appreciate it!! Xpages.TV is intended to me more of an XPages Video Landing page. Not just for the NotesIn9 shows dedicated to XPages – but to other videos that I find. I’ve been really busy working on the new XPages Cheat Sheet so I’ve not had time to improve XPages.TV yet.. but it’s coming.
    Oh and a small correction, but XPages.TV and NotesIn9 are NOT business partner sites. I’m just a pure customer really.

    Patrick – I have a lot of “issues” in my backend publishing process. I’m hoping to get some help with that very soon – but I’m not seeing a problem with that link. Be sure to click on the download link. Or even the iTunes RSS feed… give that a try.

    That sounds great, but how often have you needed it? I’m asking because in fifteen years of Notes/Domino dev, I never have. Either all the users for a given app would be accessing it via a browser or all the users for a given app would be accessing it via a Notes client, but I’ve never had an app that would be accessed by some users via a browser and other users via a Notes client.

    It might make for a good poll question. 😉

    • I only had to do it a couple of times. Mostly where there are “service level” people in the back office that use the Notes interface and the content providers or readers of the application are web browser based. But I think you have a good point, I don’t think its as frequent as many think. Now with XPages you simply open the application in the client like you normally would. The key there is the database could then be used off line…

  3. Timothy – I would have KILLED for XPages in the client in my last job. We did a LOT of offline work on local replica’s. One app had 70 sales reps throughout the North East US… The app existed before wireless 3G cards… and even when they came along there was little need to go to the expense to provide on-line access. Sometimes that “Cloud” just isn’t available or isn’t cost effective. And having the app in the client meant that we never had a huge need to web enable it. so when that need did come.. we weren’t where we needed to be. So it depends on the organization and needs I think.

    Patrick: don’t click “Play in Popup”. You might have been doing that. Simply click download and play in your media player of choice.

    Bob: Nope.. not a partner. Just a crazy customer. 🙂
