One week passed since I started whining about the resources out there for learning XPages. Boy, that stirred something up. I got lots and lots of help and even IBM woke up.
Sonia Malik send me the whole course D8L55G. Everything! I could even set up the whole course room, servers, everything (except the software). And before you ask, I can not share it with you. For my eyes only. Every page has a water mark with my name. I feel bit flattered. How did that happen?
What is the plan?
I have watched a few videos on xpages.tv. Since David Leedy’s experience is similar to mine, I get along with his explanations quite well.
Next I am going to finish the free TLCC course, which is a very good start and then I am will do the D8L55G course or I just follow „The book“ which was so often recommended – Kindle Edition.
Right now, I can not recommend the easiest way to learn XPages by yourself. I would prefer a classroom course. I don’t like videos too much, but I go with it, if necessary.
I would not use the Redbook. It is too far behind by now. The example I tried, does not work anymore.
I will start this week to build my first XPage application. Let’s see how that works.
