LCTY Manchester – Presenting Flex & Notes Integration (possible freebies)

If you can make it to the LCTY Manchester on the 13th May I will be giving a presentation on integrating Adobe Flex and IBM Lotus Notes.

I will be covering:

  • Why Flex & Notes – the business case / the geek case?
  • Building Notes 8 Sidebar widgets.
  • Leveraging Notes Security.
  • Best practices for exposing Notes data and business logic to Flex.
  • Configuring environments to use Flex apps / widgets on non Domino web sites.
  • Lessons learned – e.g. Code Structure, Logging & Debugging, SSL & IE, Multi Panel Applications.

I will demo / breakdown a couple of Flex apps which we will be available to take away – including the supporting Notes Databases.

The aim of the presentation is to try to highlight from a technical and strategic perspective why you should consider leveraging Adobe Flex as a front end for your Notes applications, something you can take back to your managers / senior managers / IT Director.  Though the presentation is aimed at developers we will not have time to go into great detail so it should be fine for Administrator / Managers as well ;-)

Even if you still haven’t upgraded from version 6 of Notes there will still be something of value for you here.

Adobe UK have promised me some giveaways which I will distribute in the presentation.
