Howdy, stranger!

Welcome to my cabin in the woods!

This site is dedicated to (web) development with IBM Collaborative Solutions (esp. IBM Notes/Domino and XPages), work, life and other stuff I may find important enough to write about. The rules are simple: if it fits in here I post it - and you are invited to comment on that if you like.

A little bit over one week ago I started a personal call for teaming up with me to send an abstract for the upcoming Engage. The feedback was good.
