We survived another trip to Orlando! YAY!
Yes, Rob and I went to IBM Connect 2014 this week, which has a special track called the "Lotusphere Technical Program." While this is a scaled down version of what the original Lotusphere's were all about, it's still nourishing for the brain.
Rob Axelrod and I did two sessions:
Rob's primary one was: SHOW100 : AD + SAML + Kerberos + IBM Notes and Domino = SSO!
This was an excellent Show and Tell which featured step-by-step converage of how to put together an environment where a user have access to Domino from a Notes client or over HTTP simply by logging into Windows a single time. It is a masterful 120 extravaganza that you can use like a cookbook to try setting up SAML yourself.
Rob's presentation is excellent especially if you are preparing for certification as an IBM Notes Administrator. You can learn tons about the subject, and since it encompasses many disciplines, its important to learn a lot about it.
My session was JMP402: Master Class: Reaping Rewards and Avoiding Risks: The Secrets of Consolidating Domains. I did it because last year Technotics
was engaged to do several large complicated domain consolidations. I'm sharing some techniques and tips. And I am also presenting some pretty big risks you can encounter if you stretch out a domain consolidation.
Both of these sessions are now available for download. Look to the upper right of your screen as you read this. There is a link to IBM Connect materials that will take you to the download page.
I am not finished putting the materials from my session up there as there are a few databases with agents in them that I talked about in the session.
The absolute best part about Lotusphere was seeing people we rarely see in person, even though we collaborate with a lot of them on a pretty regular basis. That is the most important reason that I like to go there. There is nothing quite like seeing your friends face to face.
