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.

Welcome to dominoGuru.com!
Focused on being the go-to resource for the IBM Lotus Notes Domino developer, dominoGuru.com delivers introductory-level best practices and advanced development deep dives for the IT professional, book and gadget reviews, and technical weblog, and more!
The redesigning and repurposing of dominoGuru.com is something that's been on my To Do List for quite some time now. For those of you who have been here since 2002 (yeah, this site is almost 12 years old!), you've seen the transition from blog to article-length posts to long-form articles. And it's with that natural transition that I'm redesigning and ultimately repurposing the site - specifically into less of a soapbox for me and more of a formalized articles, reviews, news, events, marketplace, and demo site.
The goal is to make the site more of a resource for enterprise application developers vs. my site. It's the best way I can think of to "give back" to a community that has given so much to me.
For those of you with Facebook accounts who also Liked the official dominoGuru.com Facebook Page, I've posted the following question:
I'm mid-development of the XPages-based version of dominoGuru.com (as you can see from the image in the post, the Foundation UI design is already complete), but I don't expect to be rolling it out until well into March, as I need to take the existing content into the new CMS I've been working on while still maintaining URLs for articles so Google-sourced traffic isn't slammed by 404s.
(Note: This gives a new meaning to the term "March Madness"...)
In the meantime, I'll keep those interested informed on the progress of the design and - because you know they'll exist - the pitfalls and obstacles (and hopefully obstacles overcome) that I'm bound to run into before, during, and after the new version of the site goes live.

I'm current writing the demo and slidedeck for my latest session, Gamification of Enterprise Applications with IBM Domino XPages II... in which
our heroes find the princess in the other castle we'll cover leveling up employees through user experience design and driving business process through the application of gaming tactics and industry-tested psychological ploys.
In other words, this session is Level 2.
Here's the session summary:
In this session, we will further explore the adoption of gaming tactics in enterprise applications using IBM Notes Domino XPages. Learn how to create fully-interactive user experiences for your applications that foster collaboration and automate business logic. Find out how to spot jobs and tasks within your organization that can benefit from gamifying process and the apps that drive it. We'll also review the light and dark side of gaming and user psychology, and how lessons learned here can boost employee performance and make for more effective users.
This webinar is scheduled for August 20th, 2013 at 2PM (Eastern US), and here's the registration page (required to attend).
For those of you who have attended these webinars in the past, you'll know I leave a good 15-20 minutes for an open Q&A (sometimes on-topic, sometimes not), so attending the webinar live has its benefits.
(Note: Turn-out and participation drives these webinars, not only having a solid Q&A at the end of the session... but also being able to justify to my bosses that these webinars discussing trending development topics specifically for our platform are critical -- so register, already!)
Have you attended my previous webinars? If you attended or were unable to attend, let me know in the comments below. And don't forget to Share/Like/+1 this post to help spread the word!
... now back to my demo (which, spoiler, is extremely sales/sales-support focused)!
If you're not following me / connected to me on any of the major social networking sites that're out there today, you might think that I've gone dormant. But in truth, I post on average 8 times per day including links to various resources covering gamification, user interface and user experience design, learning web development technologies, and more.
Most of my posts on dominoGuru.com have been full-length articles on IBM Lotus Notes Domino XPages application development, or links to other media (recorded webinars, Google+ Hangouts, etc)... which begs the question: should I be running this site as a blog, or something more?
I have a few ideas brewing that I'm not quite ready to divulge just yet, but I'm considering making this site more of a developer resource vs. a personal weblog.
And since I've always said that this site is more yours than mine, I'm curious as to what you think -- so please leave a comment on this post with your thoughts below.
