This could have been the basis for a session at IBM Connect 2013.
The dev track was pretty much all XPages all the time. Meanwhile most of the developers I talked to told me that the bulk (if not all) of their day-to-day work is still traditional Notes client/web dev. So for them, the sessions offered nothing they could use when they got back to work today.
On the other hand I can use this post NOW. So thanks (and please don't stop).
