Best Practices Guide for New Developers

Best Practices Guide for New Developers

Best Practices Guide for New Developers

I wonder if this is the proper forum to ask this question but here goes.

I am a new Lotus Notes Developer. I have bought several of the Application Development books on Notes and Domino R5. What I think I am looking for is a "Best Practices Guide for New Developers".

I am early in my Notes development career. I am still struggling with learning the basics - at this point I am trying to digest just the formula lanaguage. LotusScript, Javascript, Java, and XML are just way to advanced for me right now.

I have taken the TeamStudio LifeCycle Solo course - it is in my opinion very good at laying a solid foundation for early developers. I wish the LifeCycle course had more R5 and web content though.

Does anyone else out there recommend other sources of material that would provide some "best practices guidelines for "new developers" - especially in the use of the formula language.

Thanks again

John Falloon

RE: Best Practices Guide for New Developers

The Lotus yellow books are good references for beginning developers.  The Lotus Domino Designer 5 Vol 1 "formula language" and The Lotus Domino Designer 5  "Application Development with Domino Designer" were very helpful when I was starting out.  Also there is a "Sams Teach Yourself Lotus Notes and Domino R5" text that may be helpful to you.
