XPages brings Domino Web application development to an entirely new level. It allows you to modernize your existing Domino applications and provide an incredible user experience and interface. XPages allows you to take advantage of the unique capabilities of the Domino platform in building powerful and dynamic applications that can easily beat out competitive solutions.
As part of the Midwest Lotus User Group Conference 2011, MWLUG is sponsoring the MWLUG XPages Design Competition to let you show the world what you can do with XPages. We encourage you to show your development and design skills in using XPages to create one of a selected number of applications inspired by the IBM Lotus Nifty Fifty applications. You will be judged not only on your XPages development skills but also on user experience and interface design. The winners will be announced during the closing ceremony of MWLUG on Friday, August 26th, 2011.
