Finally updated my certification

After letting my Administration certification lapse since R5, I decided to get back in gear.
As well as updating my Application development form R7
I am now officially:
IBM Certified Advanced Application Developer - Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5
IBM Certified Advanced System Administrator - Lotus Notes and Domino 8.5
I also passed the Domino Advanced security Professional for Lotus Domino 8. I am waiting to hear if I get the certification though, due to the pre-requisite of Domino 8 admin not 8.5. We shall see.

No Lotusphere for me this year. I submitted 3 abstracts that did not get accepted. I will be doing something with them here.

Debating on getting more advanced certification with ITIL, not sure yet.

Otherwise I have found some more cool code/ideas to share over the coming months.
I will be updating the Microsoft constants database with Office 2010 constants soon. That is my next focus.

Talk to you soon


  1. I took LOT-980 at Lotusphere. Was really depressed with the quality of the exam. Some of the questions barely passed for English.

  2. Congrats John!

  3. Congratulations John! I need to update my certs as well (they are all R5!). The only problem I see though is all of my work is on the web (zero notes client stuff) so I'm not sure there is an app track just for web-only domino developers, is there?

  4. Part of the basic requirements in a test in web development. Now that being said a lot of the web competencies are the same in the client so you should get the exam guides and review them for what you need to study
