With IBM Connect 2013 only two weeks away, I have been spending a lot of time staring at the session grid. One impression that struck me as I surveyed the grid was this: there are a lot of Domino XPages and mobile sessions on the agenda. Just how many?

Social Business Solutions Development Lab - WDW Dolphin - Europe 1 & 2 (Check conference guide for lab hours)

IBM Worklight and IBM Social Platform Integration

Learn how to build a mobile application with IBM Worklight and the IBM Social Platform. You learn how to build a mobile integration using IBM Domino data and present the integration in a custom mobile application. You will use Dojo Mobile within IBM Worklight and create an adapter to Domino using REST services in IBM Worklight. You will also create UI elements for IBM Notes views, documents and camera integration.

The question remains - how many of you are indeed leveraging Domino as a mobile application server. Is this sub-theme interesting and relevant to your 2013 goals? I think this is an area where we are not doing enough to talk about Domino's benefits and relevance. The sub-theme within the conference should hopefully provide the materials - and proof points - to do so more loudly in the future.
