Your Development & Design Resource

This should be a fun week!

With several EoY deadlines, and a ton of things that I want to do, this upcoming holiday week should prove to be - to say the least - busy.

My Task List, let me 
show it to you...

And while I keep my own list (just like Santa!), I thought I'd share with you a few this I have planned for the week for!

And now, in no particular order:

  • Domino Web Services Demo & Example
    A friend asked me for an example of a NotesDatabase that leverages Domino Web Services for CRUD NotesDocument Management... so a Blackberry Mobile Device Application can be easily built.

    The app is almost complete, but having learned a lot myself, I thought I'd share...

  • Lotus Wiki Google Chrome Extension
    Half of you - based on a recent poll, but half of you do. Hell, I got word that some of you downloaded Google Chrome in preparation for this very Extension. And by some of you, I mean Joyce... but still - some people are interested in this, and I'm hoping that the Lotus Wiki Extension, once published to both and the Extensions Catalog, it will boost participation in the Lotus Product Wikis.

  • First Impressions review of RESTful Java Web Services

    I want to get at least a first impressions review of Pack Publishing's RESTful Java Web Services out this week. To be honest, I'm really looking forward to the book and cutting my teeth on REST in JWS, but I'm also stoked about holding another contest on this site (where I'll be giving away the review copy of the book).

  • Article on Custom $$LoginUserForms for Domino
    A friend asked me for an article on custom login forms, and I plan on covering not only global/server-wide but also individual application scenarios. Should be a solid entry, which I'll cross-post in the IBM Lotus Domino Designer Wiki.

  • Editorial on When to use Readers Fields
    Another friend has been having a horrible time with Readers fields in his application, so I thought that I would put together a best practices editorial on when you should and when you shouldn't use Reader-type Fields in your Lotus Domino Application architectures.

Now, as I won't be blogging/writing over the holiday, that gives me 3 days to pull these off.

I might need a Christmas miracle here ;-)

While this week is pretty much booked, there's always next week: what topics would you like me to cover here? Let me know via comment, and provided you're on the Nice list, I'll see what I can do!
