Really enjoying XPages and thrilled to see the market so attracted to it.

As I sit writing this, it's a very special day. I've come to realize just how much I love the XPages development tools. The amount of time saved in my development projects is amazing. I'm starting to think I understand why so many companies are halting installation of Sharepoint and rushing back to the Notes and Domino platform to stay ahead of the huge numbers of new IT graduates hitting the streets eager to get their hands on this fantastic technology.

April really is off to a great start!

It seems you know how to make friends in the Yellowverse. I've had a good
laugh.

I also love the way the whole XPages program has succeeded beyond anyone's
wildest dreams at one of its major objectives: attracting young Java developers
to the Domino platform.

My guess is that your comment on Ed's blog:
"That looks very nice. I'm wondering how you were able to solve the consistency
issues when working with one of the 99% of applications out there built using
classic forms and views. Surely you won't ship with a half finished UI, right?
I'm also thrilled there was time to work on this after fixing all the known
SPR's related to the existing UI, crashes, and inconsistent behavior.

I very much look forward to this faster, cleaner, bug free version with it's
pretty UI."

is a follow-up to this post. I would like to point out that you left out
"complete and accurate documentation".

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.

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.

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. ......
