IamLUG – Louis Richardson of IBM joins IamLUG as part of the 2013 keynote

IamLUG – the North American Lotus User Group Event.


Hey guys … this just in: Louis Richardson will be part of the opening (and very social) keynote address. I think you can expect some real gems at this year;s IamLUG – and not just because I am adding a few minor tidbits here and there, but because the list of (the other) speakers is pretty solid and with Louis R. (not to be mistaken with Louis CK – even though they are lookalikes) we are in for an action packed … oops …information packed get together.

There are a few seats left, and the hotel is almost fully booked – if you are still on the fence book TODAY, or you might miss out on the fun!

IamLUG: Quickr session by Snapps

A picture of Viktor K. Who is my evil (and taller-than-me, fellow P90X’er) twin. Evil because he is a developer. If he did not have such an awesome first name I would have to actually dislike him.

Next to him is Troy (nice fella, although he too is a developer). In the front row left, black t-shirt is Mr Quickr himself, Rob Novak. I will not make a character judgment of him based on his developer-ness, as I fear to be banished from all Quickr servers by evil voodoo from here on forth otherwise.

IamLUG: What comes next? Consultant in your Pocket

This is a place for a shameless plug: IamLUG is free, you most likely did not come because you are so cheap, free is still to expensive as it includes travel expenses. Or, maybe – if you are lucky, you can deflect blame to your company that they are too cheap. In any case, you are missing out on good education and a chance to learn something new and drink allot in the evening.

So, now you are in the hunt fo the next best thing: free webinars …. enter the “Consultant in your pocket” series.You can sit in front of your computer, wear your fluffy bunny slippers and do not need to shave or brush your teeth – it does not get any better than that.

Here the shameless lug: I will be hosting one of those on Sept. 1st about Lotus Protector. Almost as good as IamLUG – maybe better as you will not have to look at my but only will need to listen.

IamLUG: The Best tool you never heard about …

Just sat through the TDI session of Marie Scott and Tom “Duffbert” Duff. Really good. I work with TDI when implementing Lotus Connections mostly and use it sometimes outside of that but I did get allot of value out of this. I think EVERYBODY in the audience got something out of it. when you have a chance, download the session when it becomes available, well worth the time to look at it.

IamLUG: Eileen Fitzgerald – 10 Admin tips

Interesting topic from the point of view of somebody who was once on “my side” of divide (client) and is now with a vendor. Of course, giving some “secrets” away is paramount to shooting herself into the foot ….

Once the presentations become publicly available, I suggest a quick look at it.

IamLUG: Doug Cox presentation

For those who could not make it or did not get a connection to the live stream (some people complaining on twitter), here the presentation. I am timing for this to go out AFTER Doug is done (or close to being done) so that you pay attention if you are one of the people actually listening in … 😉
