May 14th and beyond....or at least all the way through early 2011....
Now...if I have plans on May 14th....I'll be able to catch the replay later...I like that.
I didn't attend Lotusphere this year...and I was very sad. To make me happy, I found
Lotusphere is also coming to me...yes to me as that is indeed how I like to view it. There are one day in person events : Lotusphere Comes to You happening all across the globe plus the Lotusphere Virtual Experience Both available to me at no charge other than my time.
Now for the debate....do I do the in-person (and have to get out of my home office attire) where I can meet and talk to Lotus enthusiasts and experts or do I attend the Virtual Experience (same content, just different attire requirements on me). Decisions...decisions... or ... I do I attend both?

Session title: Lotus Symphony 3 for the Mac -- Be Free. Work Smart. Explore new options (Speakers: Eric Otchet and Paul Bastide)
Description: Lotus Symphony 3 public beta for the Mac is coming soon and loaded with tons of new features for Mac users and developers.
Lotus Symphony is a no-charge alternative for office productivity applications from IBM that supports over 28 languages and has cross platform with Linux, Windows and MacOS. Representing a massive new release from IBM, Lotus Symphony 3 is based on the current OpenOffice.org 3 code stream and is filled with new capabilities and user interface enhancements. Additionally, Lotus Symphony artfully combines the office applications from OpenOffice.org with the open programming and plug-in model of Eclipse, opening up a world of possibilities for building extensions and integrating Lotus Symphony into your business applications. Come to this session and see how Lotus Symphony 3 is more than another me-too alternative to Microsoft, but a robust platform for delivering office productivity applications designed for the Mac.

As I mentioned in a previous blog ... .free software is a good thing
But sometimes you want more....so I found more about XPages
Steve Castledine has just created a new framework that will allow developers to quickly create a new XPage application using OneUI. It gives you an option of a 2 or 3 column layout, this could prove very useful when you want to quickly see the power of XPages. It has the following key features.
Easy out of the box layout so you can start building your XPage application
Has 2 or 3 column layouts simply by dragging the appropriate custom control onto your XPage
Login and Search functionality
Tab and Menu item highlighting
Handles browser languages, so if you add the appropriate property file for that language XPages will use it automatically
Uses standard css shipped with XPages, however also contains themes for new v2.1 of OneUItogether with additional themes metal, gold, red, green
Automatic Sidebar, links box, footers, tab menus custom controls built in. Others coming soon.
Here are links to resources:

Granted nothing in life it "truly" free.....but close enough. Now available on developerWorks...the fully loaded code...not the trial code....check it out at IBM Lotus Domino Designer code ....all you have to do is give a little information as you normally do on a download and the code is yours....hence the not "truly" free. Shall we call it no-charge, readily available, no monetary excchange or just call it GREAT!!.
