Xpage Bootcamp Day 1

Day 1 was a fairly intense affair with going from 0 to 60 rapidly the order of the day. The conference is in the well run Casa 400 hotel not far from Amstel station in Amsterdam and has approximately 50 attendees. Most I suspect have at least a few years Notes and Domino experience and judging by some of the screens I have seen at least 6 months xpages experience.

The first day topics were mainly around  getting a simple xpages application without navigation put together to show the raw power of the technology. The main struggle was round the mapping of domino and notes concepts to xpages concepts and Paul Calhoun and Russ Maher – the presenters did a great job of explaining the important facets.

A late working but enjoyable lab left most attendees with a feeling of having grasped the basics but ready for more on day 2.
