You will find this course especially rewarding if you have already installed a Domino 8 server and a handful of Notes 8 clients and have brought your questions to class.
This course covers enhancements to Notes and Domino Designer only if they relate to Domino 8 and Domino Administrator 8.
If you are new to Notes and Domino 8, this is not the right course for you, as it assumes significant prior knowledge of Notes and Domino 7. You should, instead, participate in a series of Domino administration training courses. Follow this series of courses to master all aspects of the Domino 8 server, Domino Administrator 8, and the administration of Lotus Notes 8 clients:
Courses later in the series assume that you have mastered the content of earlier courses.
