Tech info & education
|Join the Lotus Technical Information and Education (LTIE) community for the first ever Blackberry Jam |
On Tuesday, March 30, the Lotus Information Development Center is hosting a "BlackBerry Jam" on several Lotus product Wikis. We invite all BlackBerry users in the LTIE community to share their tips, tricks, and best practices for using Lotus products on their beloved BlackBerries. Lotus and RIM (Research In Motion, maker of the BlackBerry devices) are working together to make more content available, so this is your opportunity to help us define the content areas on which to focus.
The Lotus Connections, Quickr, Sametime, and Notes/Domino wikis will be ready for your contributions on Jam day. Just look for the "BlackBerry" category link. We will have a Sametime chat available on BlackBerry Jam day. We'll be standing by for your comments and questions. Stop by and say hi!
We have some incentives for you. We will have some great new BlackBerry content ready for you when you stop by. And don't forget about WikiMadness - people who contribute content as part of BlackBerry Jam will also be eligible for the WikiMadness giveaway sponsored by external LTIE community members Chris Toohey and David Leedy.
Questions? Email Amy Smith, Notes and Domino Information Architect at firstname.lastname@example.org
