Here's what I'll be presenting at LS11

By Andrew Pollack on 12/03/2010 at 08:14 AM EST

This year at Lotusphere 2011 I'll be presenting the following:

1. On Jumpstart Day, I'll be presenting with Gab Davis about security. The session is called "Defense against the Dark Arts". Gab has been doing a lot of work on this already, and I'll be jumping in to work with her on it in about a week when I'm visiting with them. For the last several years, we've done our A-Z of Security in this space. The problem has been that it is increasingly difficult to cover so much material in under two hours. Gab's idea was to take a different viewpoint, and instead focus on the risks that are out there and what we need to do to mitigate them wherever possible. Instead of a laundry list of security settings, this is more focused on specific threats. I think it will be awesome.

2. IBM Lotus Domino Server & Application Performance in the Real World -- This is an expansion of what I did last year with a whole bunch of additional (and very specific) information. The "real" title here is "Perform better in the Server Room" but that wouldn't fly for the LS venue. This is both application development and administration. There's a lot of server configuration stuff here -- including hardware, SAN and Virtualization; there's a lot of setup information about http caching and so on; and there's a lot of application development performance information here. This one is about 30% more content than last year's so it should be just packed full of stuff.

3. Performing Your Own IBM Lotus Domino Security Review -- This one was packed last year with people and with content, and I've added more content and re-organized it a little bit. The focus here will be on how to go about assessing the security and stability of your own domino environment and applications, and it has some technical detail and also some management detail. It will walk through the process I use as well as the questions I ask and areas of investigation I focus on when I come in to do security assessments at client sites. This was well attended in the past and the reviews I've read have been very positive, so the expanded version this year should go well.

If you have things you'd like to see me add to any of these, please let me know.

All three sound good, but I'm especially looking forward to the "Defense
against the Dark Arts".

Congratulations on getting picked.

Here are some sensible rules for web site advertisingAn increasing number of websites are now detecting when users have ad-blocking enabled, and refuse to show content unless you "whitelist" their site (disable your ad-blocking for them). I think that is a fair decision on their part, it's how they pay for the site. However, if you want me (and many others) to white list your site, there are some rules you should follow. If you violate these rules, I won't whitelist your site, I'll just find content elsewhere. 1. The total space taken up by advertisements ......
