Waking up in the morning is not my hobby ("good morning" is an oxymoron for me). And after all those beers (Belgian beers are usually stronger than Czech ones, but we are used to drink 0,5l as "one beer") this morning was especially hard. But we made it to the Crown Plaza Hotel just in time to attend "How XPages became mobile" with Earmon Muldoon and Paul Withers. Combination of coffee and interesting information was a nice start of a day. Speaking about the coffee: it was great all the time!
BLUG has been really good event this year. Again!
Theo is a great host, doesn't matter if you're speaker or attendee, he treats you well. Extremely well. All that chocolate in a speakers room! I was full of energy and good mood until late night hours even after the whole busy day at a conference. Splendid!
At the end of each year nearly all Lotus related blogs have titles like "I will be speaking at Lotusphere...". At the end of each year I wondered why people write those blog posts. Now I think I know it. So, once more, just for my pleasure: I will be speaking at BLUG 2012 :-)
Second day of BLUG 2011 was starting with two "blast" sessions: Admin and Xpages. I kind of wanted to see both of them, but finally I took the Admin one. And it was great and I am sure the Xpages one was great either.
Fabulous @Formulas by Kathy Brown (Running Notes) made me think about how is it possible to work with some product for so long (I started with Notes 3.0) and still stumble on a completely new things.
I am not a big fan of keynotes, they are mostly too high level for me. But it was raining outside in the beginning of day 1 at BLUG so I decided to listen to Kevin Cavanaugh's keynote. And it was quite good, although not technical at all, if you do not count using Expose :-)
He pointed out (in a CxO language) where IBM is heading with all that "social this and social that".
