Roadmap to XPages


Published on

When I was invited to speak at the XPages Guru webinar earlier this month to help jumpstart June as the Learn XPages month... I was assigned a rather interesting subject: defining a roadmap for IBM Lotus Notes Domino Application Developers to XPages.

Armed with 5 slides (4 if you discard the intro/cover) and approximately 7 minutes of the hour-long webinar, I attempted to convey my individual experience both with learning XPages and what I believe are the key factors in learning and successfully employing XPages in your daily application development efforts.
