Blazing Indexes (27 Sep 2008)
I think indexes (indices ? the proper spelling probably belongs in the same family discussion as the substance of nulls) are vastly under used by programmers who frequently neglect the ability rip through column values and instead, step through a sort, document by document.
Could you include the different ways that Domino handles indexes for HTTP calls versus NRPC ? And will you discuss the advantages of DB2-enabled NSF View joins ?
Evidence Based Upgrades (27 Sep 2008)
Andrew, hah, I'm not sure what my "position" would be. I did think about begging for access to BP day--I really miss the frank, straight-up give and take.
Web Development Zen Style (26 Sep 2008)
Great concept. Will you be able to include some 8.5 material/demo as well ? I'd love the chance to excite our Eclipse and JSF programmers.
32Bit / 64Bit - Native 64bit - are you already confused (26 Sep 2008)
Daniel, is there a chance that you could Linux as well ? Now that the 64bit RHEL OS is supported for 8.0.2 (which is still a 32 bit app).
Kevin, we always need a review of the OSS support for Domino applications. In the past, you've been a trusted guide for things I never knew of, outside of OpenNTF.
Performing your own IBM Lotus Domino Security Review (26 Sep 2008)
I think if you'll be including guidelines for using scanning tools, as well as hardening techniques, it'll be a strong offering. Also, I'd appreciate an evaluation of platform differences, as Domino runs on so many OSs.
Evidence Based Upgrades (25 Sep 2008)
Thanks for the feedback. Keith, you are always welcome to email me at email@example.com if you are interested in more details. Wouter, I'm hoping that my orientation is not so much a tech how-to, but a management and tech how-to. There is plenty of good IBM documentation on performing upgrades, however prying out the funding or encouraging the adoption of current releases is a constant aspect of every upgrade. Personally, I view upgrades as actually a heading under "maintenance" and I think of it as bridge painting. No one is really finished, you just go back and add the next layer.
