C3UG Video Presentation: Phil Riand

At C3UG we have taken the step toward producing videos of our presenters for on-demand consumption.  This may end up taking the place of at least one of our in-person meetings during the year.  We’re not sure yet, so please let us know what you prefer.  I still think it is valuable to meet and share ideas in person, but as it is harder and harder to find a good time to schedule a user group meeting let alone have everyone take the time to make it out, the option of watching a video may be a better way to share that same information.

Our first video has just been posted to YouTube.  Phil Riand of Trilog Group joined us to give a brief demo of the capabilities of Darwino as an application modernization tool for IBM Domino applications.  Our announcement of the video is here.  Comments are open on the blog, so if you have questions for Phil please post them there.

If you have feedback about this approach, or have a topic you would like to hear more about, please send your thoughts to info@c3ug.ca


I am an IT professional with over 20 years of experience. For much of that time I have worked with IBM Lotus Notes and Domino, helping organizations take full advantage of the tool for building workflow collaboration solutions. I have ITIL certification and a background in project management as well. Recently I have invested in how mobile devices may be used to extend business applications outside the office, and have also been learning how to add social components to traditional business applications. Away from work, I have three daughters and recently celebrated my 20th wedding anniversary with my wife in Hawaii. I coach hockey, cycle, and love growing garlic and then finding new ways to use it. I added a section of herbs to my garden last year and was very happy with the result. I ride my bike each year with my wife in the Ride to Conquer Cancer to raise money for research in childhood cancers, particularly brain tumours. Our youngest daughter lost her battle with a brain tumour in 2008 and through this ride we hope to help find a way to prevent other families from experiencing what we went through and continue to live with. If I have any spare time, I like to travel, so you may see the odd photo from our family adventures here too.
