Domino Web Developers...Will Our Apps Be Better In New Google Browser?

Exciting times, eh? Tomorrow, Google is releasing "Google Chrome", a new, built-from-the-ground-up web browser that promises to be a modern platform for applications and web pages.

With announcements like this, plus all the new goodies like xPages coming from IBM, you really do need to start brushing up on your web skills. While I *love* rich client development, I believe it's equally important to be able to use your skills when developing for the browser. I've met far too many Domino developers who have said they don't do web. Believe me...you want to start studying up on your html, css and javascript. You won't be disappointed and they are skills that will serve you well outside of Lotus land too.

Please Welcome A New Voice To The Lotus Notes Community

Hi All...I hope everyone is well. I'd love to say that I've been heads down working on a super secret project that will revolutionize Notes UI development for years to come but...yeah...not so much. I do have a whole treasure trove of ideas in my brainstorming notebook, though, and with any luck, I'll be completely refreshed after my upcoming, long-awaited (and needed) vacation and will dive into developing these brilliant gems into working prototypes to share with all of you.

In the meantime, I wanted to point you to a new blog and introduce a new member of the community. Dan Lynch has been working with Lotus Notes and Domino since the 3.x days and is currently the Team Lead for Enterprise Messaging at one of my customers. They just so happen to have recently completed one of the competitive battles that Ed was talking about yesterday.  Yes... Lotus Notes won out in the end (woot...we rock!  ;-) and Dan was an instrumental member of the team doing the evaluation between the Lotus and Microsoft collaboration platforms.

Dan has a lot of great insight into the "Microsoft threat" and the necessary components to evaluate when going through such a process.  He also has years of experience that he can share regarding the Notes and Domino platform, and I look forward to reading his coming posts.  For now, he has started with a great kick off article discussing the advantages that Lotus Domino brings to the table when you are faced with an e-discovery process. 

Please welcome Dan to the Notes blogging community and check out his Enterprise Messaging Trenches Blog (hosted by the fine folks at Bleed Yellow).

Welcome, Dan...Glad to have you here!
