Genii Software's 5th Annual Lotusphere Agenda Database for PDA Synching and Session Planning

Back by popular demand, we have built a Journal database containing all the sessions listed on the official Lotusphere site. This database is based on the personal R5 Journal with a few added views, so it should synch with the Palm Pilot, but it also contains a wealth of useful information for planning out your schedule. Modify it all you want or make suggestions at Ben@GeniiSoft.com.

Also, just for fun, read Mike Midas in his Veiled Threats, where he gives a hint as to what might be coming in Version 3, to be released just before Lotusphere. You can even read his earlier Luck be a Lady Tonight and Carrying Concealed, if you need something to do while waiting for Lotusphere 2005.

Version 3 - Posted Thursday, January 20 at 1:58pm (ND6/ND6.5 only)
A few data changes, fixing problems people have identified. Some new bloggers, we now have 39, and some better categorization of the CULT sponsors. The views have been cleaned up to better express times, but the biggest change is to the Session document, which now uses layers to show other uses of the room the same day. Let me know whether that is useful, and maybe I'll create more "views" that way. See the Mike Midas post above for details on that, or my blog post Ogres have layers, and now the Sessions db does as well. Current Midas customers, and other curious people, can also look at the agent used to create the layers, which I have left in the database.

The only big change remaining is the better webified version, which will be available tomorrow on the web for use during the conference. Thanks for all your support and interest. As you can see, there have been a lot of downloads.

Stripped down version 2b for R5 (and perhaps more suitable for basic PDA synching). Will be updated shortly to 3.

Additional comments, thanks, etc. by Ben Langhinrichs on Jan. 6, 2005:

For the first time in about five years, I'm not doing a session this year, but I will be spending a fair amount of time on the showcase floor at both the Granite Software pedestal #605, because Granite is selling CoexLinks for us, and Proposion Inc's pedestal #509, because Proposion has integrated our @Midas Formulas into their .NET/Lotus integration tools. Stop by, and I'd be happy to see you or talk about either of the solutions, or anything else for that matter.

This database was created using our Midas Rich Text LSX, our soon to be released CoexEdit, and our GrabIt LSX utility. GrabIt was used to retrieve the HTML pages. Midas was used to import the HTML and search for the relevant information, and also to format the rich text in the documents. CoexEdit was used to allow editing of some documents from the web remotely by others without losing the formatting when editing in the Notes client. Come visit Genii Software's webpage for information on the all our products, including our new coexistence products. If you want the actual code used to generate the sessions db, drop me a line at Ben@GeniiSoft.com and I'll send it, or at least a good part, along. Also, watch the Genii weblog for updates about the Sessions database, commentary on Lotusphere... and maybe even another entertaining case file post by our resident Ace Developer Mike Midas. (Watch via RSS if you like)

If you will be at Lotusphere and would like to meet, be sure to get in touch and I'd be happy to meet with you.

Thanks to Ed Brill for information on Gurupalooza and other sessions, for talking with the Lotusphere folks about pointing to this page, and for generally being supportive and inspirations. In addition, Christopher Byrne, Julian Robichaux, Stephen Walch, Jerry Glover, Carolyn Kraut, Robert Gouin and the many others who have offered design modifications and suggestions which have gone into the database design. We are building off the success of last year's database, which was downloaded by almost 1/3 of Lotusphere attendees.


We don't stop at the limits of Notes, we start there.
