XPages workshop in Kuala Lumpur and Manila

Last week I conducted our famous XPages workshop in Kuala Lumpur and this week in Manila. I found a high number of encouraging pointers:
  • participants generally love XPages
  • In both classes more than half of the participants had no or less than 2 years experience with Lotus Notes and did quite well
  • One customer shared: "We haven't developed new Domino applications for a few years now, but with XPages we will resume creating new applications for the Lotus Domino server"
  • Developers with exposure to web development snap XPages up easily, old Notes hands need to unlearn a few things first
  • The repeat control is everybody's favourite measured by the time they spend with that exercise (repeat after me: with great powers comes great responsibility)
Next stop: Melbourne, Australia 29/30 April 2009.

    Didn't know there's a Xpages workshop in KL. Was it for internal IBM only?

    William, sorry you missed it, it was open to all, but places were limited.

    Funnily enough, the day after the workshop, we had an opportunity come our way that we decided to respond to with an XPages-based solution. Fingers crossed.
