Mat Newman January 9 2013 23:21:19Over the last few years, one of the most useful tools leading up to Lotusphere (now IBM Connect) has been the outstanding Session Database provided by Ben Langhinrichs.
A few weeks ago Ben announced that he wouldn't be producing the database this year.
Never fear, it's not gone - a group of people are working on a replacement, which you can download HERE ( <- Right-Click, Download).
Figure 1: IBM Connect 2013 session DB, version 1:
Thanks to some support from Vitor Pereira, Andreas Ponte, Andreas Imnitzer and Giulio Campobassi this fabulous resource is again under development.
Once you have downloaded and unzipped the file, just put the sphere2013.nsf database in your Lotus (AHEM!) IBM Notes data directory, choose the session you want to attend, and then click "Add to Calendar". It's that easy. You can also keep your local replica up to date just by clicking on the "Sync with Server" action, which will connect to the fabulous Tim and Gabriella Davis's servers at the Turtle Partnership and keep your information up to date.
Keep an eye out. More features will be available soon.
