We have discussed the idea of holding a Technical meeting in the Western Suburbs on the months opposite the Loop meetings. At yesterday’s GRANITE meeting, we decided that PSC will have the pleasure and the honor to host the first of these meetings at its Schaumburg office on Monday, March 15th from 3pm – 7pm. Our office is on the 5th floor in suite 500. (Google Maps link is here.)
We also decided that the main topic of these meetings will be XPages. Specifically, Mike McGarel and Roy Rumaner will be starting everyone off on how to build an XPage application. Where do you start, what do you need to know and how does it work with an existing Notes application.
They are going to use Declan Lynch’s excellent 54 step tutorial as the focus of this project. At the first meeting we will be walking everyone through the first ten steps (more if time permits) in his tutorial. We will then ask everyone to do the next ten on their own before the next meeting.
If you want to start reading through the tutorial before the meeting, it can be found at http://www.qtzar.com/blogs/qtzar.nsf/htdocs/LearningXPages.htm
Please let us know if you are interested in this idea and if you are going to attend this meeting. If you have any other topic ideas, we are also open to hearing them.
We would like to get a count of how many people will be attending. That will determine which room we will use for the meeting. Roy started a thread on LinkedIn. Please respond there or on our blogs.
