ITSO-8001-R01 Update: So how's the remote residency coming?

In a word, great! We, the first remote residency team, have already established an effective way to collaborate with each other as well as "as a whole" - by utilizing Lotus Greenhouse and Sametime Unyte. We're using a combination of Sametime, Unyte, Connections, and the Wiki itself to effectively communicate with team members.

We've also decided (but it's not "set it stone" as of yet - so things might change) to utilize the News section of the Wiki (which is basically a blog) to hash out discuss various methods, practices, and make sure that the agreed-upon "best practices" are truly best practices.

This part of the whole process is what excites me the most! You, the reader, will get to see the discussions behind what made it in (and what didn't) - giving you a "logic trail" and acts to immediately dismiss the "Why didn't they do this?"-type of questions. I don't think you'd get that with on-site residencies personally, no matter how great the meetings notes were - and thus this immediately (to me) becomes one of the greatest benefits of this particular residency. Great stuff indeed!

As for the content that's going into this Wiki... well, it's got the potential for being the resource for all Domino Web Development. Of course... I could be biased ;-)
