All set for IBM ConnectED 2015

by Volker Weber

It's less than eleven days before I shall be leaving for Orlando and I finally have all ducks in a row. Now I am looking forward to re-Connect with all the people who will be attending. And those who are just visiting. My Saturday night watering hole used to be the Dolphin bar at the escalator. And although the conference moved to the Swan, I hope we can keep that tradition.

And here is a tradition that is coming to an end. Mark Helton, a.k.a. The Camera Guy, is not going to be there. He has covered Lotusphere for 20 years.

Looking forward to seeing you there!

First drink on me !

I don't know if you go to any sessions besides the Opening General Session, but just for fun you should pretend you are a developer and try to use the session preview tool to map out your week:

It's so bad that you'll be convinced that you are doing it wrong.

Timothy, I looked at it. The developer needs to attend an IBM Design Camp. Twice.

And no, I usually have lots of briefings and meetings. I do spend quite some time in the labs though.

Cool: Ed Brill is having his own fair called connected: I do not know but this design puts me more on thinking at the first to Ed instead to IBM. I also think he deserves that thinking at first to him instead to IBM. What he has been done all these years for Domino .

Keep the tradition - walking over from the Dolphin to the Swan and back will be a piece of cake, compared to your recent track record in walking! ;-)

Staying at the far end of the Dolphin is my only chance to get past 10k a day. But I hope more people make the effort. ;-)

Will be there. So, with all your ducks in a row, is the traditional "Lotusphere Haircut" one of your ducks? ;-)

Andreas Imnitzer, 2015-01-14

Looking forward to seeing you there, my friend!

Turns out others found the official session preview tool to be lacking as well. There are now two alternative tools to use to plan your week.

@thorsten I had nothing to do with the name of the conference, but I will be there :)

Ed Brill, 2015-01-15

I expect many of the old timers to head to the Dolphin lobby bar - mostly because the swan bars (except kimonos) are pretty crappy! See you there and travel safe.
