XPages Gamification on OpenNTF

Last Sunday I uploaded my first OpenSource project XPages Gamification on OpenNTF. This is my contribution to the Appathon XPages development contest and my first open-sourced application ever.

I am really excited about this new experience: coding an app just for fun (yes, fun!), submitting the code to the community (plus for a judgement). I already can say for sure that it was worth the effort just for my personal experience!

There is still a lot of work to do in many different areas (UI, features, better integration in existing application ecosystems etc...), but I am already working on a first update with first bug fixes and a few more features.  Nevertheless, I am really looking forward to your feedback about my app. 

So this is it: XPages applications now can be gamified :)

Thank you for stopping by here :-) 

My name is Michael Ruhnau. This is my new blog about IBM Notes & Domino, XPages and... well, let's see what else. I have been working with Notes for about 15 years - most of the time as an application developer and consultant. Find out more about me here.

Starting a blog is something I wanted to do for a long time. After all these years working with Notes & Domino it has become a part of me, my identity. So this place here will be my take on contributing something to the IBM-Lotus-Notes-Domino-Collaboration-XPages-Community. Hope to see you soon again here ;-)
