As many of you know, next week is IBM Think in San Francisco. Unfortunately I won’t be able to be there and neither will my fellow Lifetime Champions Julian Robichaux and Theo Heselmans so we wanted to do our own version of “Think” for those of us who are missing out. Starting next week we plan to record a daily 30 minute audio podcast discussing the news coming out of Think and some of the presentations and sponsors that are there.
IBM have published a list of sessions that will be available for streaming here https://www.ibm.com/events/think/watch/ so we will be watching remotely and we have several guests who will be at Think joining us each day. This is our attempt to bring some Think and collaboration news to those (including us) who can’t make it. Here are our planned topics for each day
Monday: The Collaboration Community
Tuesday or Wednesday: Showfloor review
Wednesday: Futures and Innovations
Thursday: Domino News
Friday: Wrap up
The podcasts will be published on our blogs each day, We hope you enjoy them.
In the 10th edition of my Perfect 10 webcast I explain how and why to build a test lab so you can get to deploying those products you downloaded today. You did download them right?
I was asked recently to share the slides for all these Perfect10 presentations and to be honest I hadn’t thought of it but it’s a good idea so I’ll be sharing them all this week.
Next up: Let’s Talk Domino v10 & Admin
The countdown is now only 10 days – on October 9th the new version of Domino and Notes v10, the first major release in several years and the first since HCL took over ownership of development has a huge launch.

Yesterday I gave my session “What is Node.js?” at ICON UK in Birmingham. If you attended and would like to see the slides, or were unable to make it to the event, here is a link to the slideshare:
This is my presentation from Icon UK on Thursday 13th September. There are lots of TCO features coming in Domino 10 that I’ve been working with and look forward to putting into production. In this presentation I cover things like cluster symmetry, pre send mail checking, deletion logs and the newrelic statistics reporting.
Say it with me….
28 days until the Domino 10 release.
In this 8th episode of my #Perfect10 webcast I look at why understanding priorities and dependencies are an important part of planning an upgrade.
Next Up: Estimating Work Effort & Downtime
By Tim Davis – Director of Development
Last month, I presented a session at Collabsphere 2018 called ‘What is Node.js?’
Luckily my session was recorded and the video is now available on the YouTube Collabsphere channel.
The slides from this session are also available on slideshare.
If you are interested in learning about Node.js (especially with the npm integration coming up in Domino 10) then its worth a look.
Many thanks to Richard Moy and the Collabsphere team for putting on such a great show!
In the 7th of my Perfect10 webcasts I jump ahead to “What Can I Do In Advance” to talk about Beta testing. Beta versions of the v10 products are due this summer in a publicly available release so now is the time to start planning what you will do.
Next Up: Upgrade Priorities and Dependencies
In this 6th episode of my #Perfect10 webcast I look at how to identify any performance issues in your Sametime, iNotes, Verse on Premises or Traveler environments prior to upgrade.
Next Up: Preparing for Beta Testing
In this 5th episode of my #Perfect10 webcast I look at how to identify any performance issues in your Domino environment prior to upgrade. Assuming most people will be doing an in place upgrade, we want to resolve or at minimum document any existing issues before starting
