Red Pill Now is pleased it will again be represented at Engage. This year’s event is being held in Antwerp, Belgium May 8-9. This will be the third year. Without doubt this is one of the best User Groups for IBM Collaboration Software.. Organizer Theo Hesslmans does an amazing job, and usually finds some way to make each event even better than the one before. So we look forward to see what Theo and his amazing team have planned for this year. Last year we had four people from Red Pill Now attend, with three of us getting caught up in the dramas of the terrorist attack at Brussels airport just as we landed. This year Bob Kadrie and I will be attending as co-presenters. It should be a lot more relaxing and enjoyable as we don’t have a sponsor booth to attend to and we will (hopefully) have our luggage this time.
Monday, May 8 | 13:30 – 14:00 | Table 2 Gorilla 1
Creative Director, Bob Kadrie and I will be hosting a round-table discussion for anybody interested in learning more about applying Material Design using Web Components. The informal setting of a round table will provide the prefect oportunity for any who is trying to provide a more modern interface to their Notes data to ask questions and share ideas about the direct application of Google’s Material Design and what it can add to your user’s experience. We hope to make this a fun event and have a few unusual gifts to give away to participants.
Tuesday, May 9 | 11:30 – 12:30 | D. Gorilla 4
This is a workshop targeted at traditional Notes developers who want to learn more abut how they can go about bringing a Design First approach to their Notes projects regardless of whether they plan using XPages, general Web development, or even Notes client development. We will outline the approach Red Pill Now uses when tackling a project to modernize an existing Notes application. We will walk through a real-life example of a project, provide some tips on getting started with design and then allow the audience the chance to work together as a part of small teams to design a better interface for the Notes Contacts application.
One lucky attendee will win an Echo Dot.
