I must admit, XPages wasn’t on my radar when Steve Stansel (co-manager of IBM Press Books) and I first spoke with Ed Brill (IBM Product Manager) about what direction we should be going with IBM Press and Lotus/Collaboration products.  We had published a few books on Lotus Notes/Domino and while they sold well – we never seemed to get the right excitement around the titles.  That all changed when at Lotusphere 2011 we released, Mastering XPages.  The reviews were great.  The feedback was  awesome. And there was great enthusiasm for the content.  The authors were a pleasure to work with and Steve and I quickly scrambled to see what else was needed in the marketplace.  Our publishing partner, Pearson, had terrific success with Portable Command Guides – mostly with CISCO Press.  That was one idea.  Another came from an author team that said, “We need to have content on the Extension Library”.  Then came a proposal on Getting Started with XPages.

We published the XPages Portable Command Guide a few months ago and produced a Meet the Authors Video for the book.  And now for the hat trick – XPages Extension Library. A Step-by-Step Guide to the Next Generation of XPages Components.g this month.

We created a Meet the Authors Video and have posted a free sample chapter from all three of our XPages books.
