My name is Dr. Mark Roden and I am an IBM Champion (IBM equivalent of the Microsoft MVP program). I have spoken at multiple international and local conferences on XPages and Web development technologies such as Angular.js, WebSockets and jQuery. Over the time I have met many people who are concerned that their Lotus Notes/Domino/XPages skills are non-transferable. I have always maintained that being a Web Developer first and a boutique back-end developer second gives you transferable skills.

The point of this blog is to track my progression through learning more and more about Office 365 development and Office Add-ins. I believe there is a myriad of business solutions which this can solve and only a lack of imagination is stopping us from finding them.
