Hi,

I'm a newcomer to Lotus Domino development, and I'm interested in taking a beginner's class.  Can you recommend anything?

thanks

I would not recommend any classes unless you have 0 Programming experience.
If you do any programming, then buy an r6 Development book and learn that way.

Between the excellent IDE and Design help, there is plenty of info and samples without havng to pay .

Otherwise check out the IBM courses and LDD

I hope this helps !

I like the initial classes for jump start to learning inside tips and good/accepted practices.  These you don't get reading books (although that is a good way to learn, too - my preferred method).

It all depends if you have had ANY programming experience before.  If not, then take a good visual basic course, javascript, or some programming language course that will get you familiar with the syntax, events, and class logic.

Once you have that (along with a good SQL server or MS Access) the rest is all relative  with different syntax. :)

Some of the online tutorials are good, too.   The problem you have with Notes, is that it combines  Visual Basic, javascript, java and html programming languages with  Database protocols (like SQL, Progress, Foxpro, MS Access) and e-mail, so Notes spans several disciplines.

Good luck.. and always, you can post here for explanations.

If you got a basic knowledge in any programming languages, I would  recomment the Lotus Domino Designer Help Database that come with the installation. It's very basic and comprehensive document and included so many usefull example codes.

You might also want to download some usefull codes shared by other LN developers from here
http://www-10.lotus.com/ldd/sandbox.nsf/DownloadPage?OpenForm

It's that the way I did and now I'm able to develop some good DBs for my users.

Goodluck!
