Notes Domino XPages Communities and XPages Top Resources



As you may know, I am Moderator of the Google+ XPages Community (and Curator of Collaboration Today). Together with the owner Rob Bontekoe, my old XPages teacher, the Google+ XPages community was founded some years ago.
The aim of this community is to promote XPages as a development tool and sharing information about XPages, Notes Domino and IBM XPages for Bluemix.

At this time, the community has 506 members and is still expanding!
If you are not yet a member of this community and want to be kept informed of the latest news and if you want to share news about Notes Domino and XPages then join the Google+ XPages Community now.
The more members the more news and the more it is shared within our amazing community.

OpenNTF was launched in 2002 by committed members of the Lotus Notes/Domino community. The organization provided a hosting site for sharing applications and useful code for the Notes and Domino platform. Projects have included full blown client and web applications, rich client plugins, administrative tools and more. Over the years the scope of OpenNTF has expanded, to include IBM Sametime, IBM Connections, IBM Connections Cloud, IBM Forms, IBM Websphere Portal and beyond. In 2015 we anticipate including content for the IBM Bluemix platform.
