Announcing the availability of the Totally Unofficial Totally Unsupported IBM ConnectED Session Database

Mat Newman  January 14 2015 11:14:32
A couple of years a group of enterprising individuals picked up the mantle left by Ben Langhinrichs and created the IBM Connect 2013 and 2014 session databases.  This year the conference has been renamed to IBM ConnectED, which of course would not be complete without the communities Totally Unofficial, Totally Unsupported IBM Notes Session Database.

A HUGE amount of thanks to the following people who did the work to get this IBM Notes Database back online for 2015:

Rob Novak: AJAX Parts
Karl Henry Martinson: JSON Parts
Vitor Pereira: Imports, using the above and killer instinct on finding the data
Giuseppe Grasso: Mobile and XPages
Andreas Imnitzer: Compatibility and Set-up 2014
Giulio Campobassi: Mobilite integration
Gab Davies/Turtle: Thanks for the Server!

In addition, I have been informed that a couple of other community members in Marky Roden and Mark Leusink also have a surprise in store as part of their session at IBM ConnectED utilising the Session Database as one of their examples.

You can download the IBM ConnectED 2015 version of the database: download HERE ( <- Right-Click, Download).

Once you have downloaded and unzipped the file, just put the sphere2015.nsf database in your IBM Notes data directory, choose the session you want to attend, and then click "Add to Calendar".  It's that easy.  You can also keep your local replica up to date just by clicking on the "Sync with Server" action, which will connect to the fabulous Tim and Gabriella Davis's servers at the Turtle Partnership and keep your information up to date.

Keep an eye out.  More features will be available soon.

ENJOY!

EDIT:
Sorry about using the latest version of IBM Notes to create the download folks, for those of you with OLD versions of "Lotus Notes" there is an alternative download for the TUTU database that should work on versions from 7.0+, which you can get HERE: download HERE ( <- Right-Click, Download)

Thank you everyone who worked on this (and Tim and Gab for hosting it)! I was just commenting to my colleagues how much I missed this database from last year.

Thanks so much! This isn't just the best thing since sliced bread, it is better than sliced bread!

OK, it requires Notes v9.0.1. We're a 9.0 shop currently, but I have 9.0.1 installed on a test workstation so I'm able to get into it now. Thanks!

Haven't been in a few years, Was shocked to see how inadequate IBM's session preview tool is. Yesterday I searched around looking for alternative. Not finding one, I bit the bullet and manually created a spreadsheet with the information.

And today there are two excellent alternatives that make the time I spent yesterday wasted. Oh well, timing is everything.

Many thanks.

Thank you! Now it's possible to do some real planing of schedule (totally official and totally supported preview sucks :) ).

@7, Nicki: DOH! Thanks for the reminder. I have now edited the post to include a file with an older ODS that should be OK for (@8, Richard) Lotus Notes version 7.0+

And what's more: This database gets the time zone right! The iCal feeds from the offical Connected site does not!

Chalk Talks are not inside it yet, or the IBM official app. But are known, sorta. Await the updated version

There is no Stephan Wissel in the speakers list. It must be a mistake? I checked again. He is not there.

What up with that lah?

What happened ah? Why like that one lah?

#20, Ra: Stephan is now Bluemix. I will miss him, his calm Aura and his great mind there, too.

Oops, the y fell off.

That is sad, very sad, for all. Got your back covered though buddy. You can always join the Binary Tree team under James Yip.

If you see our customer list, paying customers that is, you will start crying. Really, you will have a panic attack.

The list of prospects coming to us daily is astonishing. Microsoft alone is pushing thousands a day and HP is not far behind. Really sad for the Yellowverse.

I know, I know, you are just fighting a good fight. Thinking of the yellow boxing glove campaign: This is what a Loti fighter would look like today - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QY1jzjTjIhY

We tried to get a stand at Connect but for some reason IBM refused. Go figure.

Have a great Lotusphere and huge hugs from me. I will see you in June! Family wedding in SG.
