In the fall of 2008 I had the privilege of participating in the AdminCamp show in Gelsenkirchen, Germany.

The whole show was fantastic. If you ever get the chance, you should attend. The focus of the event is deeply technical, but no small amount of effort is paid to making sure that every attendee and every speaker is well fed and has a good time. I've never seen a show done better.

Confessions of a Penetration Tester
Andrew Pollack, 60 Minutes, Closing Session
Putting the best lock on a rusty chain isn't good security. This talk will focus on making smart security decisions overall, and how all the small choices you make have to work together to create a secure environment. Examples will be taken from real world experiences and customer penetration test findings. You may come away a bit scared, but you'll be thinking differently about security.


Domino Server & Application Performance in the Real World
Andrew Pollack, 90 Minutes, Track Session w/ Demo
Getting better performance from your Domino environment isn't just about hardware. There are dozens of small choices made in configuration, operating system, and application design strategy as well. The fastest hardware you can buy won't keep up if you make the wrong combination of choices, but even inexpensive hardware can handle a large application if you make the right ones. This session is based on real world performance overhaul recommendations I've made for clients. I'll talk about what was recommended, why, and what the results were. Some sites have reported up to four times more users per server without major design changes. Come learn how.

In twenty five years, I don't think I've ever written an entry like this, but if you need the kind of work I do now would be a great time to get in touch. Both of the big projects I had lined up for late summer and early fall have been placed on hold and will be that way for a while.

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
