Advantages & best practices of local mail replicas

Many congratulations to Luis Guirigay for having his article on Advantages and Best Practices of Local Mail Replicas published in the Domino Wiki.  After many review cycles the article was finally added to the wiki.

If there’s anything you wanted to know about local mail replicas but were afraid to ask, Luis is the ultimate authority on the subject.  It’s great to see another article published by the PSC team.

PSC speaks at Lotusphere 2011

I’m excited to say that PSC will be well represented at Lotusphere next January.

John Head and I will once again present a Jumpstart session titled “The Never Ending Integration Story: How to Integrate Your Lotus Notes, Domino, and LotusLive applications with Microsoft Office, .NET, and Lotus Symphony”.  We promise all updated content and new demos updated for new versions of all software pieces involved.

John has another session he will be doing, too.  But I will let him talk about that himself.

Luis Guirigay will be co-presenting a session on Best Practices for doing Lotus Domino Health Checks.  While Luis is a frequent speaker at various user group events around Chicago, this is the first time he will be speaking at Lotusphere.  I am very excited that his session was accepted.

Hope to see everyone at our sessions.  Pack those rooms.  I want to have an overflow room once again.


PSC is writing new Lotus certification exams

Once again, a member of the PSC Collaboration team, Luis Guirigay, was selected to assist in preparing a couple of new certification exams:

  • Websphere Portal 7 Administration
  • Lotus Quickr 8.5 Administration

While Luis is already the most certified person I know, now he’s got a couple of new certifications to add to his belt.  Great job!

PSC’s team of Lotusphere speakers is growing

Well, at least we are hoping that it will grow.  In addition to John Head and me, this year Luis Guirigay decided to join in on the fun and submitted an abstract of what we’re hoping will become his first Lotusphere session.  Luis’ session is based on his experience recent project expeirence building a very complex collaboration environment, involving pretty much every flavor of IBM technologies.  It was an interesting project and a rather intricate yet elegant solution.  I’m wishing Luis’ best of luck in getting his session approved.  I’ll be keeping my fingers crossed, too.
