Lotusphere 2009 Approved!

November 13 2008

I am a bit late to the blogging about these, but I had three Lotusphere 2009 session abstracts approved!

First, we have the Jumpstart that Alex and I have given the past couple years Introduction to integration of Lotus Notes and Lotus Domino with Microsoft Office, .NET, and Lotus Symphony. The session has been completely revamped with all new demos and new technology demos including the integration of Google Docs with Notes and Domino applications and some intro samples around creating OOXML and ODF documents. This session has been popular in the past with a back to back repeat pre-scheduled. That is 4 hours of integration demos Sunday afternoon in Orlando to kick off the week. If we do that again this year and you see my Sunday night at the party or eating Ed's sushi at Kimono's after, you will understand why I am punchy :-)

Second, I will be giving Lotus Symphony and You - A Developer's Perspective, which is a revamped version of my Irish Lotus User's Group session with less Executive and User info but quite a bit about the upcoming LotusScript support for Lotus Symphony.

Last, I have a session entitled The Document Format Dance which will cover ODF and OOXML (and PDF as well) in the world of Lotus software. Not only will I go thru some hard core examples on how to generate these document formats WITHOUT using a desktop application, but the session will also give an impartial look at each format ... and try to help you answer the question on which one to use.

It is again my pleasure to speak at Lotusphere. This is the premier conference in our space and I am always honored to have my sessions selected. Look forward to seeing everyone in Orlando in January!
