Products & Applications
The idea is simple. At the start of your day - upon completion of your first task - create an entry highlighting what you did and whether you feel it was an efficient or inefficient use of your time. Based on several requests, you can also select the priority, apply categories, or even align your time against a project.
For Lotus Notes Client v8.0 and above, you can use the Time Tracker Widget to make this process even easier!
My Configuration-based Rich Text Mail Merge and Emailing Utility, Zephyr allows you to create rich, data-driven emails to support automated workflow - all via Microsoft Word Mail Merge-like architecture. Dear <firstname> allows you to personalize each email message not only to the individual recipient, but also to the individual application workflow event!
xCopy is a simple configurable xCopy client for the Lotus Notes client. By creating and defining xCopy Profiles, you can batch process your file backup or remote upload jobs. With the addition of the xCopy sidebar widget, you can easily kick-off these jobs, and modify both the xCopy Profiles and xCopy itself.

It's a question that I've been wondering since the shift from Lotusphere (an event which was highly-technical developer and administration focused) to Connect (more management and enterprise social strategy focused)... and even moreso that I'm attending this year.
I know what I like to see at a booth and I know what I can't stand at a booth... but I don't know if I'm in the minority or the majority.
When I'm in the product showcase (which is honestly - aside from seeing friends that I only get to see at events like this - my favorite part of Lotusphere/Connect), I want to see what people are doing with the technologies that I use. I want to see innovation and I want to see things that will inspire me. I want to be WOW-ed.
I want to interact with fellow developers and administrators, not sales and marketing types that're only interested in selling me their shrinkwrapped solution.
The problem is, the marketing and sales budgets that are tethered to what is actually showcased at events like this depend on the audience. If Connect is now a managers show, then can we expect a managers-focused showcase?
Does that mean that we lose the developers at the booths? Does that mean that we'll have to wade through the celebrity look-alike photobooths (that happened), car show-esc short skirtted models (that happened, too), and toothy insincere sizing up of attendees? I hope not...
I'm "working a booth" at Connect this year, and I plan on being a resource to those attendees who, like me, want to collaborate with a fellow developer who uses IBM Notes Domino, XPages, Connections, and even non-IBM technologies. I plan on answering questions, not scanning badges. I plan on discussing problems and suggesting potential solutions.
I plan on hanging out and talking - talking to whoever shows up at the booth.
And I might personally be showing off some cool, non-product, proof of concept demos that might not be completely business-applicable.
... because that's the type of booth I like, but again, I might be in the minority there.
What kind of booth do you like at shows like Lotusphere and Connect? What do you think makes a good demo? And what would you love to see from someone working a booth? Let me know in the comments below.

Did you miss the Wednesday 11AM livestream of the dominoGuru.com Hangout covering Enterprise Gamification for IBM Notes and Domino XPages application developers? Luckily, I've got you covered:
Chris Toohey (with Chris Warden, Monica Moira, and Roy Rumaner) discuss enterprise application gamification, personality profiling, and how IBM Notes and Domino XPages developers can get started using gaming industry tactics in their application development efforts. Salesforce automation, new hire onboarding, and more business topics are discussed!
I plan on having these hangouts weekly, and covering a variety of topics. If you're interested in a topic or even being a panelist, get in touch with me. If you want to participate during the actual livestream, simply tweet me and -- as you'll see during this week's hangout -- I'll do my best to respond.
Are you a fan of these hangouts? Like / Share / +1 to help spread the word, subscribe to the YouTube channel for the latest dominoGuru.com screencasts, hangouts, demos and videos, and make sure you follow me on Twitter @ChrisToohey for more!
I've setup a playlist for all of the dominoGuru.com Hangouts, which I'll be maintaining for all upcoming of these hangouts.
Surprisingly, I've already done more of these than we did episodes of YellowCast!
For those of you who enjoy these hangouts, remember that we'll be covering gamification today at 11AM Eastern US. Follow me on Twitter (@ChrisToohey) for more details and message me during the chat to participate!

Based on the amazing feedback to my post from the other day, So you are NOT going to Lotusphere / IBM Connect 2013, I've put together the current schedule of Google+ Hangouts that I'll be hosting...

So you are not attending IBM Connect 2013, and if you're anything like me you're feeling a little left out that you won't be onsite for what promises to be an fun-filled gathering of IBM Collaborative Software experts and enthusiasts.
That's right, I won't be attending IBM Connect 2013 either due to family obligations on the home front (5 kids == too many activities to list here). So, if you're not going... and I'm not going... what should we do to pass the week aside from watching Twitter for #IBMConnect posts?!
In truth, I'm not too sure - but let's do something!
I'm seriously considering hosting a few Google+ Hangouts and getting discussions going on various topics. I've also thought of doing a livestream of me XPages-enabling this site... but not too sure if anyone would be interested in that sort of thing.
Have a suggestion for a Hangout topic or livestream/public build we should do next week? Want to watch me copy/paste and Google Search my way through XPages-enabling this site?? Think I'm off my meds for suggesting we keep ourselves busy and entertained while seemingly everyone else is Orlando-bound?!
Let me know via the comments below. There are no bad ideas here, gang -- like always, you guys drive the content you'll see on this site.
