Attending IBM Connect 2014

IBM Connect 2014 - January 26-30 - 
Orlando, Florida

I will be going to IBM Connect 2014 this year, working the GBS booths, where I'll be there to showcase our Modernization and Mobilization products and services.

The Modernization and Moblization products and services work that we offer is what I've been spending the better part of a year working on - on the IBM XPages front, we're talking reusable Custom Controls and componentry, Dojo and JQuery-based UI Frameworks (like Twitter Bootstrap and Foundation UI), functional SSJS and CSJS libraries to create reusable core functionality, and incorporating a lot of adaptive user experience design and progressive enhancement tactics and methods to create task-oriented UX and drive business logic through user interface and user experience design.

It's been a blast and certainly a great learning experience creating componentry vs. simply cranking out single-use (or even multi-use within the same application/project) design elements -- it's allowed me to see application platforms in a whole new light, and it's something that I'm looking forward to sharing both at IBM Connect 2014 as well as on this site.

So, are you going to IBM Connect 2014? Leave a comment below: if you are attending, what are you looking forward to -- if you're not, why not? Should make for an interesting exchange...
