As you can see at the moment I’m on a bit of a Notes/Domino  path and this reflects some of the strategic direction outlined by IBM at ILUG 2010. For Lotus developers the future is X – XPAGES and now is the time to get skilled up and get some prototypes built for prospective clients and existing customers who already have the investment in Domino and Notes and need the refresh and re-expression that Xpages can bring to their apps.

As a tool for developing web applications across disparate information islands Xpages can give you the upper hand by using your existing skills in Notes / Domino and a framework for your new developments.
