Jesse Gallagher | 1 month ago | Comments
OpenNTF presents Water Cooler Talks, an irregular new series of webinars to provide a stage for individuals sharing their stories, experiences and best practices with their peers.

This month's topic is all about developers' workbenches. As developers, we all have tools and routines we use to develop, collaborate, and test our applications. We have experienced lots of issues and made mistakes and have a workflow that does the job, but may not be ideal. Are there better ways to do our jobs? Come learn from your fellow developers in this webinar that looks at the typical toolbox and workflow routines of several OpenNTF Board members and how they develop apps, manage tasks, track bugs, handle versioning and more.
        •        Howard Greenberg develops Notes/Domino/XPages applications for a variety of  clients. Come learn how he uses source control in Domino Designer along with SourceTree and BitBucket to collaborate with his clients and maintain a history of all changes.
        •        Jesse Gallagher develops XPages and webapp projects that target Domino. He will present his development environment and discuss using Maven and Jenkins to automate builds and delivery.
        •        Serdar Basegmez utilizes Domino to create RESTful APIs for his clients. He will present his development environment and share some tips on Eclipse configuration, deployment and testing Domino plugins.

This webinar will take place on August 20, 2020 at 11:00 AM to 12:30 PM US Eastern (3 PM GMT). There will be time for questions at the end.
