Get your apps integrated with IBM Connections, cloud and on-premises!

I've been using this blog to share some of the techniques we use in ProjExec to get tightly integrated with the Connections platform. I got a lot of feedback from developers who wanted to know more, so I'm moving a step further: Jesse Gallagher and I will describe these techniques in a breakout session @Connect 2017!

DEV-1430 : IBM Connections Integration: Exploring the Long List of Options
Program : Development, Design and Tools
Topic : Enterprise collaboration
Session Type : Breakout Session
Date/Time : Wed, 22-Feb, 10:00 AM-10:45 AM
Location : Moscone West, Level 2 - Room 2006
Presenter(s) : Philippe Riand, Triloggroup; Jesse Gallagher, I Know Some Guys, LLC

Basically, we'll show for both on the cloud and on premises Connections:

  • how to get your user authenticated by Connections, using OAuth or SSO
  • how to call services in the behalf of that current user
  • how to get your apps in the IBM Connection menu
  • how to integrate the navbar, including on premises!
  • how to share code common to community apps (cloud) and iWidget (on premises)
Beyond live code and demos, we will release a reusable library as open source, with all the necessary code to get your own Java based application integrated effortless. It will be available on darwino.org, a branch of OpenNTF.

To make that possible, IBM helped by providing a long awaited ask,  Wait wait wait, I'm not going to reveal that here, but an IBMer will be on stage to explain. Wait again, should not talk about this neither, people have to come to the session!

See you @Connect, and don't miss this session if you want to be an IBM Connections developer hero!
