Lotus Training Audience
This course is designed for experienced Notes and Domino 6.5 developers who plan to upgrade their environment and applications to Notes and Domino 7.
You will find the course especially rewarding if you have already used Notes 7 and bring your questions to class.
This course only covers changes relevant to Domino Designer. To learn more about:
If you missed the Notes/Domino 5 to 6.x upgrade, we have these courses to prepare you for the Notes/Domino 6.5 to 7 upgrade courses:
- upgrading to Notes 7 and Domino 7 software and their standard applications (administrators), take the Domino 6.5 to 7 Administrator Update course
- upgrading to Notes 7 (users), take the Lotus Notes 6.5 to 7 User Update course.
- Lotus Domino 6.5 Developer Update
- Lotus Domino 6.5 Administrator Update
- Update to Notes 6.5
If you are new to Notes and Domino with this release, this is not the right course for you to take, as it assumes significant prior knowledge of Notes and Domino 6.5. You should, instead, participate in a series of Domino developer training courses.
This course is part of a series of Domino Designer 7 training courses. Follow these paths to master all aspects of developing applications using Domino Designer:
