Lotus Notes Application Development

Hello,

I have been told to learn Lotus Notes Application Development by my organization. Can someone please guide me how can I start with it.

Please also suggest Books and Online Material which can help me in learning Notes Application Designing.

Thanks.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

The areas of development needed are the traditional Notes development area using Formula and LotusScript, the help files that come with Designer are a big help.
If starting development then it is recommended to learn Xpages development which uses the eclipse IDE and Java for server side programming.

Some good resources

There are quite some prerequisites when you intend to succeed in this mission:
- thorough knowledge of the Notes client, agents, views and documents
- a good understanding of the Domino server
- programming as a whole (VB makes it easier to learn LotusScript)
- OO programming

What is your background?

And what could make life a lot easier for you:
- start learning Notes development together with others, in a group
- take a Notes training from an IBM Business Partner, to get a quick start
