IBM Connections Engagement Center
Custom Widgets Lab
IBM provides a number of widgets that can surface Connections content in a very structured format. But what about non-Connections content?

We'll describe the steps and show you running code. You'll leave with a firm grasp of the basics of building widgets for ICEC and be ready to start creating your own.
