Packing for IBM ConnectEd 2015 I stumbled into last years IBM Connect 2014 backpack...
The little surprise surprise I've found inside was the ***drumroll*** original Lotusphere Pretzel Cookie !!
No, I'm not planning to eat it althgouh its calories would last a month or two Who knows what will happen if anyone would take a bite.
Given the fact that 2014 was the last year where the word Lotusphere appeared at the show, this cookie is probably turning into a collectors item.
I'm wondering if there are people who would try making big money by selling it on ebay?
Hint: Stop searching ebay, you can't really buy that cookie there.

If you have not already managed to download the IBM Connect presentations with Stephan's instructions using CURL, here is a dummies guide for Firefox users.
Please note, those presentations are not publically available - to download them you need to authenticate with your IBM Connect credentials which can be found here:
1. If not already installed, get Firefox
2. Install the Plugin DownThemAll! ( for more information see http://www.downthemall.net/ )
3. Open page1 of the IBM Connect public files feed
4. Authenticate using the credentials (see your IBM Connect badge)
5. Right click on the page and choose "DownThemAll!..." to start the plugin
6. Set download options as shown below...
- Define where to store the downloaded files
- Set the filter to include only "Archives" & "Documents"
7. Start the download
8. Repeat step 5 to 7 with page 2 of the feed
If everything worked out, you should have approx. 500 PDF files showing up in the folder specified above.
You might want to take a look at Chris Miller's IBM Connect and Lotusphere slides database which currently hosts ~55 slide decks from IBM Connect 2014 and is publically accessible.
Furthermore Niklas Heidloff pulled together a list of app dev sessions from IBM Connect 2014 , some more presentations can be found by searching Slideshare.
Unfortunately not all presentations are available for download - some speakers did not grant permission to publish the slides, so there's some content that is only available to people in the room.
If you did not make it to Orlando there's a chance to attend local events such as the Rheinland Nachlese 2014 organized by TIMETOACT
