OK, here goes…. something!
I have been intending on starting this blog for a long time, a very long time. Just seems that I always found a reason to not start. Well, with the new year I have decided to just do it.
You can read more about my history in the About page. The short story is I have been working with Lotus Notes/Domino software since 1996 starting with version 4.5. I may have the specific version wrong, but it was the version prior to the name Domino being introduced. Version 4.6 is where I really started in earnest.
Prior to my introduction to Lotus Notes, my background is primarily software development in a corporate setting, starting with Basic, Cobol, C, some Java, and web development.
I have been working as an independent consultant focused on Lotus software since 1999. Starting out with development, extending into administration and infrastructure planning. I guess you could classify me as one of those hybrids (development/admin/customer facing). Maybe that means I am not an advanced expert in any particular discipline, but it does allow me to have different conversations with customers, partners, and peers.
Enough about me, the full story is in the About page. Now onto this blog. The purpose of the blog is to communicate with my customers, colleagues, and peers to share knowledge of Lotus software technologies as well as other business solutions. The focus will definitely be Lotus software, but other topics are possible. Hopefully, you can learn something here from me. More importantly, I expect to learn from you!
