Lotus Greenhouse Webcast on the IBM Mashup Center

Last week, we deployed the recently GA'd IBM Mashup Center in the Lotus Greenhouse. I've been excited to get this going since January's Lotusphere, as it adds another leg for us in Web 2.0 Platform for Business strategy. Having Quickr, Connections, and Mashups together in a single environment will allow us to interconnect these product's services and content easily and demonstrate how the web can be used as a delivery platform.

Tomorrow, we'll host the product team in a webcast that goes over the basics of mashing. Come join us at 10:00-11:00AM EST US. An invite should be waiting for you in the Inbox. I hope to see you there!

Lotus Connections Residency

Lotus Connections: How to Customize and Extend It

Have you been enjoying tinkering with Lotus Connections? If so, then we've got the residency for you! Have a look at the objectives aimed at extending a Connections implementation.
From my experience with customers and within the Lotus Greenhouse it a fun endeavor using the Atom based API. The possibilities are endless, as explored in this developerWorks article.

The focus of this residency is on customizing and extending Lotus Connections, as well as creating applications that allow Connections to interface with other software. The goal is to provide tips and techniques to help users create attractive and easy to use applications and interfaces. Interfacing through Homepage, Profiles, Dogear, Activities, Communities, and Blogs will be covered. Widgets, TDI and the REST API will also be looked at, as well as interfacing to Sametime and Notes 8.
