Join me at Engage for some XPages and Bluemix awesomeness

Logo_Trans2

I find myself yet again preparing for long flights to vast never before seen countries. This time it’s the Netherlands, where I’ll be presenting my session titled “The XPages of Things“, at an awesome user group called Engage, on Thursday the 24th March 2016 at 2:45pm (Netherlands Time – UTC/GMT+1).

I am extremely excited for this session, as it really shows off what is possible using a Cloud platform like Bluemix and integrating it with an on-premise platform like IBM Notes and Domino. The feedback I received re my session from IBM Connect this January past was also super positive, and for those who are still considering if they should attend my session, here’s a pitch…pretty much everything is a live demo 💪.

If you haven’t registered for Engage as yet and are considering…well consider faster, as there are only a few seats left and remember that registration is free thanks to the Engage team and the sponsors.

The event takes place on the 23rd and 24th March 2016 in Eindhoven, Netherlands. And check out where the event will take place!!!

Session Title

Abstract

“The XPages of Things” session will take you through a gripping LIVE demonstration where John pieces together an “Integrated Circuit of Things”, binding an on-premise XPages application with the IBM Bluemix cloud.

Join this session and discover how applications can leverage services on the Bluemix cloud to expand on what’s currently possible in XPages.

Closing

I am proud to be part of the team of speakers at Engage and just want to thank the team for giving me this opportunity.

See you all next week

Video Tutorial: Get up and running with Lotus Domino Designer 8.5.3

Hi everyone. So here’s my next Video Tutorial. I show you how to download Lotus Domino Designer 8.5.3 and I also give a quick demo on how to set up your first Notes Application.

I decided to go back to basics and assist those who are new to IBM (Lotus) Notes, especially those who want to get started on Notes/Domino and XPages Development. I end off the Video Tutorial showing you how easy it is to create a working CRUD Application (Create/Read/Update/Delete) in the Notes Client.

If you use iTunes, you can download this video via David Leedy’s NotesIn9 Podcast series.

Enjoy :)

John.

A quick example of the Dynamic Content & Data View Controls used in an XPages App

Hi Everyone. I’ve finally made some time to test out a few features from the XPages Extension Library. It was a bit of a learning curve, but it’s looking good.

Click here to view a Demo of these Controls.

I apologize in advance if there’s a small delay when using this App. It’s been hosted on a Server in South Africa…so the Internet Line is to blame.

Anyways…below is a list of Controls I’m using in the XPages App:

1. On top you’ll see the XPages Debug Control that was created by Mark Leusink and is available on OpenNTF. It’s very cool in the sense that it allows you to print messages directly to the Control and not via the Server Console. It also allows you to see all Scoped Variables that are being used in the XPage. Finally, it has an awesome feature where you can execute SSJS Scripts and view the result. I am very happy with this Control.

2. I’m using the Application Layout to control the Look and Feel of the XPage. It’s always a massive time saver. Click here to view the Video from NotesIn9 that explains the Application Layout in more detail.

3. in the Left Section I’m using the Navigation Control made available in the XPages Extension Library. This was a trick and a half, but I managed to use Partial Refreshes for all my onclick events. This allows me to use 1 XPage and multiple Custom Controls.

4. Depending on loading time, you might see the XPage go into Standby during the Partial Refresh. This is thanks to the Standby Custom Control which is available for download from OpenNTF. This is an awesome feature that needs no additional resources to function.

5. I have 2 views in the Main Content Section. These are Data Views that I am using from the XPages Extension Library. It’s safe to say that I am currently using very basic functionality from the Data View. There’s a lot more that you can do with it.

6. The 2 Data Views exist in a Dynamic Content Control, also from the XPages Extension Library. I won’t go into too much detail about this except that the Dynamic Control keeps your XPage light, and only loads Controls when they are needed. Very awesome stuff.

I am quite happy with what I’ve achieved in the last 3 hours. I had to put a few hacks in place to make everything work with Partial Refreshes, but all in all it was quite easy to implement.

I highly recommend the XPages Extension Library Book. It’s a life saver.

Till next time. Enjoy :)

Use YSlow to measure your Site’s performance and more

Hi Everyone.  Here’s a quick post that I’m sure will make all the difference in your Web Dev Life.

There is a Browser plug-in called YSlow. You can install it on Firefox, Chrome, Safari, Opera and more. I’m going to use the Firefox plug-in for this example.

NOTE: For Firefox, you need to install Firebug to use this plug-in, as it’s an extension to Firebug.

Once you’ve installed the Firebug and YSlow plug-in, and restarted your Browser, do the following:

1. Open your Website. In my example I’m using my XPages Showcase for this example.

2. Push F12 on your keyboard. This will open the Firebug Window at the bottom of the Browser.

3. Click on the YSlow Tab. You’ll see an introduction Page, and a button at the bottom that says “Run Test”. This takes about 2-5 seconds to run.

 

 

4. Once completed, YSlow returns a set of results. You’ll get an overall Grade with a Performance score. (Please don’t judge me for getting a C. YSlow’s moaning at me for not optimizing CSS and JS files,  but there’s a reason for that…)

5. If you take a look at the 3rd Red Arrow on the Image, you’ll see it’s pointing to the Ruleset List. This is pretty awesome, because you can set the rules and benchmark for how your site should be measured. There is a YSlow Add-On called Web Metrics Framework, which is a ruleset that measures your Website according to Google’s Standards.

6. If you go into each of the sections that’s returned….e.g. Content…..you’ll get a second set of Tabs that Score you according to individual operations….See image below.

 

 

7. YSlow also comes with quite a bit of useful Hints, Tips and supporting documentation.

This add-on is easy to navigate, and very very useful. I hope it helps. Thanks Yahoo.

 

Cheers for now.

John
