Engage User Group Event 2020 in Arnhem, Netherlands
The BeLux User Group is organising its next meeting from 2 to 4 March 2020 according to the motto:
Dream – be inspired – create
The Engage User Group launched its very first event in 2009 as the first Belgian-Luxembourg IBM Lotus Notes user group (BLUG). After switching Notes from IBM to HCL, Engage is now an HCL User Group. This year’s Engage UG event offers an extensive program with over 80 sessions from 100 selected top speakers from all over the world, in the unusual location of the Burger Zoo in Arnhem.
In addition to workshops and lectures on the topics of administration & deployment, development, emerging technologies, business and strategy, there will also be roundtables. The outlooks of interest for the further development of Domino v11 can probably be found above all among the strategy sessions.
10 exciting HCL strategy sessions
It is not easy to decide on the choice offered, because unfortunately some sessions run in parallel. The HCL session of Max Sutton and Thomas Hampel on HCL Nomad Mobile will take place at the same time as the presentation of the roadmap to the HCL Digital Experience (by Herbert Hillhorst, HCL Technical Advisor). Both will run on Tuesday 3 March from 4 p.m.
Don’t miss the session “What’s New in Domino V11 and Beyond for Application Development” (with Andrew Manby and Andrew Davis, both HCL, March 4 from 1.30pm), if you want to know why Domino’s is a good decision for App-Dev. The session for developers “Domino Web Dev Options – Which one to Choose?” takes place before (with Bernd Hort, Assono GmbH, 9.00 a.m.).
If you are interested in this topic, because you want to use existing, smaller Notes applications or databases on the web, you maybe look forward to further announcements from HCL. HCL announced last year, that a new client is in progress for which a name isn’t available yet. This “light-weight client” should get by without complicated installation. The code base of HCL Nomad is to be transformed with WebAssembly technology, so that simple Notes applications can be opened in the browser.
According to the HCL Webinar from the end of November 2019, the first version of the new client is to be released in 2020 and expanded quarterly. No further details were provided. So far, HCL has said, that the link should offer the following possibilities:
Running apps in a browser
Switching between client and web
Links to Office 365 and HCL Connections
We hope for more information in this Engage strategy session: “The Next Instalment: HCL Nomad Web” by Thomas Hampel and Doug Conmy (both HCL), on March 4, 2020 from 9 a.m.!
