So, to my utter surprise, my second Abstract for IBM Connect 2016 was approved. It’s titled “Optimus XPages: An Explosion of Techniques and Best Practices“. For a reference to my first Abstract, click here. Just so everyone knows, IBM Connect takes place at “The Hilton” in Orlando, Florida. My session “Optimus XPages” is scheduled for Monday the 1st February 2016 at 3:30pm.

I am extremely excited to be presenting this session. Over the past year I have implemented a number of solutions running on XPages, and I got to experience first hand the improvement in performance and overall user experience when comparing these solutions to ones I developed in the past. I feel I have come up with some serious practices that anyone can easily apply to make their applications work and feel fast and responsive, whether running on a local network or in the cloud.

Below is a rundown of my session:


AD-1074 – Optimus XPages: An Explosion of Techniques and Best Practices


Starting a new XPages project but not sure it’s going to be done right the first time? Do you have an existing application that doesn’t seem to have that “X” Factor? In this session John will demonstrate how XPages developers can apply proven techniques and best practices to take their applications to a game changing level.


  1. Rapidly develop responsive applications
  2. Improve user experience and response times with background and multi threaded operations
  3. Keep your XPages lightweight with code injection
  4. Create scheduled tasks the XPages way
  5. and much more.

I hope to see you all there 🙂

Cheers for now 🙂
