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.

In case you missed today's XPages Experts Panel, here's my slidedeck from "Responsive Layout Frameworks for IBM XPages Application UI" session:
(I'll be recording this for my YouTube Channel shortly, as the slidedeck only tells half of the story...)

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!

One of my favorite tactics for deploying a mobile device application is via mobilized XPages applications. Sure, there are situations which call for an actual local device application that interacts with Domino via Web Services or XPages (as a Web Services broker), but sometimes having a simple XPages-based Form and View for an application is all the business logic and real world use scenario requires. In other words, sometimes faking it gets the job done.
For those situations where your mobile device users will have absolute connectivity (think internal shop floor with wireless network access), or you're really only testing out the mobile device application adoption for your internal applications (those proof of concepts before you invest too much time and resources for what ultimately might not be used by the target user audience...), the iOS (and Android for that matter) webclip icons will help make your mobile browser-friendly application look and feel more like a local on-device application.
Now, I've talked about this in the past (reference: Adding custom iPhone/iPad/iPod Touch Web Clip Icons to your IBM Lotus Notes Domino XPage Apps), but using an apple-touch-icon HTTP LinkHeader allows you to provide a simple icon for your webclip applications. However with the advent of larger resolution retina displays from Apple, those paltry 57x57 pixel images just won't cut it.
Here's a breakdown of the iOS Application Icon sizes that are now available...

The release of RIM's BlackBerry Mobile Fusion has me honestly thinking that I'm missing out on some evolved platform and device experience since I gave up my BlackBerry Bold for my iPhone 4. And since I'm an amazingly selfish person, I've all but abandoned any BlackBerry platform mobile device development efforts.
... and I was a huge BlackBerry fanboy. Remember Showtime, my BES channel push utility for the IBM Lotus Notes client?! It was even showcased during a WES presentation in 2009!
But today I don't have a BlackBerry device (not counting my v5 OS-running BlackBerry Curve that is now the family extra mobile), be it a BlackBerry Bold, Playbook, or any of the like. Thus, my interest in writing for that platform has waned.
... that is, unless there is a solid need for supporting that platform by you, Constant Reader!
So instead of simply putting out a blog post to get an idea as to what devices you use personally as well as which devices you have to support in your company, I thought I'd have a little fun and try out a survey service...

(Disclaimer: My daughter is brilliant. Something I'm certain she gets from her mother.)
This past weekend, after many a conversation about the subject, I setup a new development server... for my 12 year old daughter. She was curious to learn the details of what I do, and she had several ideas for applications...
