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.

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...
(View the complete schedule and how you can participate by clicking here...)
2013 promises to be an amazing year for the advancement of certain technologies, and I truly think the end of others. Here are some of my predictions for 2013 for IBM Notes and Domino, trends in enterprise and consumer technology, and more.
I've been wanting to do this for a while now - ever since Google+ introduced their Hangouts solution - so in between project work and the 10 year anniversary of dominoGuru.com, I thought now would be the perfect time to start dominoGuru.com Hangouts.
The idea is fairly simple: I'll host a panel of experts where we'll discuss various topics. Since this is dominoGuru.com-branded expect those to focus on application development both IBM-related and beyond. I hope to cover things like modernization, mobilization, gamification, collaborative/team development, integration, and more.
Today I'll be hosting our first panel, which will include Dave Leedy, Russ Maher, and Paul Calhoun. The topic we'll cover should interest the well-versed, but particularly interest those developers who have yet to get into XPages application development for IBM
Lotus Notes and Domino.
So... how can you get involved? Simple really, each Hangout will be live-streamed via my YouTube channel: youtube.com/ChrisToohey. I've scheduled this Hangout for today at 12:00PM (Noon) EST, and while I've booked the entire hour I doubt it'll take that long...
Subscribe to my YouTube channel & the live event Hangout stream will show up in your feed.
You can also follow me on Twitter, Facebook, or Google+ - as I'm certain I'll be getting word out about the event via those outlets:
If you can't make the event, Google Hangouts auto-save, so you'll be able to view (and re-watch, if you're so inclined) each dominoGuru.com Hangout at your leisure.
And there you have it. Hopefully this works out, and can become a resource for you to learn new things. Please keep in mind this is our first attempt, so be kind and expect glitches.
Oh, and if you have topic suggestions, schedule suggestions, gear/tech suggestions, leave a comment below. Like/+1/Share this post to help spread the word, and I'll see you all (or, more accurately, you'll all see me) later today!

After creating various HTML5 Custom Controls for my IBM XPages application development toolkit, I thought I would showcase two of these controls -- Geolocation and Canvas -- to paint a Google Map of the current user location. Bonus: works great on mobile devices too!
(Click thru for more...)
I'm a big fan of Google Maps, and (when appropriate) I try to integrate them in my applications. They have a knack for giving any app sex appeal. Take a CRM-type application for example. You can supply a user with an address (OfficeStreetAddress, OfficeZip, OfficeCity, OfficeState, OfficeCountry) displayed in a simple table-based layout, or you could display that data and add another row that shows them a hybrid Google Map that plots the given address.
In an attempt to be as efficient as possible when writing XPages applications, I've gotten into the habit of creating simple and reusable Custom Controls that allow me to copy/paste functionality into a given project. My xc:map_static.xsp Custom Control -- which uses the Google Static Maps v2 API -- is a perfect example of one of those reusable Custom Controls.
I'm still making some enhancements to the control, but it's to the point where I'm happy enough with it to show it off:
xc:map_static.xsp Custom Control - Single Marker Demo:
590 Madison Avenue, New York City, New York 10022 US
markerlocation="590 Madison Avenue, New York City, New York 10022 US">
I'll be releasing this Custom Control for download/use at a later date, and will be updating the Demo site frequently... so stay tuned, and let me know if there's anything you'd like to see demo-wise from this control!
