Egads, developers, not one proposal?

Tue 14 Dec 2010, 04:22 PM

Not one developer can think of a book proposal? Nothing on XPages? Nothing on integrating Symphony with Notes? You are all willing to travel to Lotusphere at great expense to attend sessions by great development minds, but you aren't interested in getting those development minds to write the stuff down.

Make your proposal(s). Nothing will get written if you don't suggest it. Don't forget the special offer. Read the original post to find out a bonus for those who propose (I sound like a Vegas Wedding promoter).

Update: our first dev proposal is in.  Hurry on over and let us know what you think. (If any idea seems too big or too little or needs amending, feel free to comment and suggest alterations. We're supposed to be all about collaboration, after all.)


Update: another dev proposal.  You are at least starting to get some semblance of choice:

I have been hoping Oliver/Benz would update the Notes 6.x Bible to 8.x someday...

When did you post the request? Less than 24 hours ago right? Developers are busy working unlike those Admins ;)

@Ed - It's just too big a project to keep up to date, in my opinion.

@Carl - Duh, I should have remembered the hard-working developers wouldn't be done getting beers 'round the pub finishing up their hard work. I will wait more patiently.

I thought there was an Xpages book already on it's way? How about my rejected abstract: SQL Plus NSF have your cake and eat it too. Was going to show examples of creating rich and web apps that tie into SQL Enterprise data using various methods.

@Tim - Add it as a proposal on IdeaJam, and we'll see what the wisdom of the crowds tells us.
