I am very very happy that my friend and real yellowbleeder Jan Krejcárek has been named IBM Champion in ICS for 2017. He is the third one from Czech Republic (in ICS) and it is a well deserved achievement.
I do not have any real statistics (apart from those I am just making up), but I think we might be the best in "champion per capita" ratio. There might be some smaller country though, I really should check it before writing it in the blogpost. But we have post-fact era after all :-)
Na úvod je asi vhodné uvést, že s organizováním a přednášením na konferencích nějaké zkušenosti mám a ačkoliv se v následujících řádcích někde vyjadřuji kriticky, tak celkově byl GeeCON výborně zvládnutý a přes hodně slušnou návštěvnost jsem nikde nezaznamenal výraznější problémy.
SUTOL (Czech Lotus User Group) has published agenda for its annual event in Prague. I think the lineup of speakers is great - with one exception :) - and conference will be full of interesting information and cool technologies.
After successful last year's event we are doing it again in English, day and a half instead of one day, with three tracks instead of two.
IBM has officially announced that it will support IBM Domino/Notes 9.0.1 until September 2021.
Although the announcement does not specifically say so, IBM was communicating it as AT LEAST until 2021. Which is good news, regardless if your plan is to migrate off the platform or to stay there.
A lot of things happened since Monday morning. It turned out I was not at all alone in thinking this. So there are some other posts on the subject, much better than my rant. And most importantly you can find Ed Brill's comment under Darren's post.
(I tried to sort them chronologically, not 100 % sure I did it right, though)
I'm just making this quick short note to save myself a few searches next time I'll need this:
Do you want to manipulate PDF files, for example to merge them? Use Apache PDFBox. Version 2.0.1 works just fine on Domino, API is well documented and reading PDF files from notes documents is easy - EmbeddedObject has method getInputStream().
This is starting to be a little old, but after every BLUG/Engage every blogger from the community simply has to - contract is very strict about this :) - write that Theo and Hilde did it again, that Engage was bigger than last year, venue was impressive and event most successful. It's very easy to do so, as it is 100 % true.
My wife and I are not the biggest fans of winter, especially version of it that we usually have in Prague. Every year we plan our vacation to cover as much winter time as possible. Last year we spent 7 weeks in Nicaragua and at the end of our stay we felt we hit the limit of how long we can/want be abroad and NOT doing anything else than travelling. Therefore we've decided to try another approach.
