Workplace 2.0 21 Oct, 2004
Like John Head and Richard Schwartz, I recently attended a two day workshop with IBM, all about application development with Lotus Workplace 2. It was a useful workshop, crammed with information, and certainly gave me some food for thought. If anything, there was too much stuff to go through in a two day session, and we didn’t get to do nearly as much “hands-on” stuff as I would have liked (mind you, the lab machines were so slow, perhaps that’s a blessing. Eek).
I wasn’t on my tod though, oh no. I was accompanied by m’two learned, illustrious colleagues Marc “Palin” Springett and the great John Barrow (he of Sametime red book fame!), so my thanks to them for helping make the two days most enjoyable. IBM Hursley is set in green splenditude within the lovely village of Hursley, and the Winchester area certainly makes for a pleasing change from the Big Smoke.
I can’t really add to what has already been said about the WP2.0 sessions at the moment — I need to gather my thoughts first (could take some time) — but these free workshops are definitely worth investigating if you get the chance, and the underlying technology is intriguing — the
rich “managed” client is going to rock.
