My upcoming presentations for spring/summer 2017: some on CF, some on other topics

I'm going to be speaking several times in the coming weeks and months (on several topics, some on ColdFusion and/or CFML, some on generic topics applying to any server, and one on SQL Server 2016 SP1 specifically). I thought I ought to post that fact here (I have often failed to think to do that here over the years).

I offer below first the events at which I'll be speaking, and then the preso titles and descriptions for any readers interested. (As an update, I was informed on 5/16/17 that I'd been selected to speak at NCDevCon. While it's not in "spring/summer" per the subject above, I've added it to the info below.)

I'll be speaking at CFCamp in Munich, Germany, Oct 20-21. See you there!

I'm delighted to announce that I'll be presenting again this year at CFCamp, in Munich, Oct 20-21.

I'll be speaking at the Adobe ColdFusion Summit in Vegas, Oct 10-11. See you there!

Many have been asking if I'd be speaking again at this year's Adobe ColdFusion Summit, in Last Vegas (Oct 10-11). I will indeed!

(There was some challenge in getting all the speakers posted until just last week, so though I had known I was speaking for months, I held off announcing it until I could point to the link.)

I'll be presenting (as I do for each release) my "Hidden Gems In ColdFusion 2016" See the description via the links above. It should be as classically useful as ever, whether for those either new to or experienced with CF 2016.

I certainly do appreciate the conference team selecting me again to be a speaker. I've spoken at each of the 3 so far, the first in 2013.

The conference is always a great time (and has gotten larger and better each year, by most accounts). And Vegas is of course a great location (though honestly I barely leave the venue the whole time). Then there are all the great attendees, and sponsor booths, as well as nearly the entire CF team on hand, and of course lots of useful information shared from all the presenters.

If you'll be attending, I hope to see you there! And if you're still considering it, see the Why attend? page and other links offered there. Finally, note that the "early bird" price has been extended to August 31. See the Pricing page.

I'll be speaking at dev.Objective() conference, June 15-17. See you there!

I'll be speaking at next week's dev.Objective() Conference, in Minneapolis (June 15-17). The conference is always a great time, in a great location, with great people, and lots of useful information shared, and I appreciate the conference team selecting me again to be a speaker. If you'll be attending, I hope to see you!

I'll be presenting two talks, "Hidden Gems In ColdFusion 2016" (as my personal talk) and the sponsor talk for the Integral (FusionReactor) folks, "Keep Applications Online And Detect & Isolate Application Issues & Performance Bottlenecks In No Time With FusionReactor 6".

See the descriptions for each, via the links above. My Hidden Gems talk should be as classically useful as ever, for those either new to or experienced with CF 2016. And the FR 6 talk will be more than "just another intro" to FR, highlighting as it will the important new features of FR6. Again, see the description [I wrote the description, they picked the title :-)] to appreciate what it will be about.

Also, let me give a heads-up to all attending: do be sure to look at the email that was sent out today or yesterday, with all kinds of important information to be aware of, from timing of events, to ground transport, to the very important map to see how to get from the conference hotel to the conference location at the college just a few minutes away, and more.

See you at dev.Objective() in mid-May (I'll be speaking)

Just wanted to share word (sorry it took so long) that I'd been selected as a speaker at the upcoming dev.Objective() conference, in Minneapolis in Mid-May. Hope to see lots of my fellow CFers there, and of course new folks who were not CFers.

While the conference name has changed (from cf.Objective()), there are still plenty of CF-oriented topics, and of course as nearly everyone would point out, it's good for everyone to expand their reach and focus.

To that end, I'll be doing a topic a bit different than my normal focus of CF server troubleshooting. Instead, recognizing that there will be folks there who either use other servers, or develop web apps or mobile apps, I'll do a bit of a "soft" topic on how to troubleshoot performance problems more generically, in:

Hey, my web app's slow. Where's the problem?

My presentations at ColdFusion Summit, CFCamp, etc.

I wanted to share word here of the presentations I'll be offering at the upcoming Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2014 in Vegas on Oct 16-17, as well as CFCamp 2014 in Munich on Oct 20-21.

Also, sorry for the long delay in blogging. Just been so busy doing my CF server troubleshooting consulting.

As for my sessions at CFSummit (next week), I'll be doing the following (and you can follow the links to learn more about the talks, their dates and times, etc.):

At CFCamp, the following week, I'll be offering:

I had also presented the Hidden Gems talk at NCDevCon 2014.

These are all great conferences, and, in addition to cf.Objective 2014 (where I spoke also, on different topics), they are each great ways to keep up on what's going on in the world of ColdFusion and related technologies.

Finally, if someday you're visiting this blog entry and find that one of the conference links no longer work, you can find my own link to all my presentations, at all conferences the past 15+ years (as well as to any recordings made available) at my presentations page.

Come say hello if you're at any of these events.

Two videos I've done for the Adobe YouTube ColdFusion Channel

Hey folks, I've done a couple of videos over the past several months on the Adobe YouTube ColdFusion channel, both focused on some important challenges related to ColdFusion 10. If you've got about 10 minutes to spare, I suspect you may learn things to surprise you.

First video, on single-login problems in CF10 Admin

The first video was done at cf.Objective() in May 2013, and was posted to YouTube by Adobe shortly thereafter:

Video 1: Solving the problem of single-login in ColdFusion10 (07m:32s)

If you've had the problem in CF10 of finding that you login to the Admin, only to be logged off soon thereafter, I explain in the video both why it happens and how to solve it. (I also wrote about it previously here.)

Second video, on important security hotfix notes document

The second video was done back in June, but sadly was not posted until last week. While the timeframe references I make are dated, the information shared is not and really may still be a surprise to as many now as back then:

Video 2: Security Hotfix Notes Document (5m46s)

This is such an important document. I also had written about it previously here.

See other CF videos there

Be sure to check out all the videos in the Adobe CF YouTube channel, about 20 of them currently, from different speakers and on many topics.

Don't forget to vote, for cf.Objective() 2014 topics, including 2 ColdFusion talks from me

By now you may have heard that the call for speakers for the cf.Objective() 2014 conference closed a couple of weeks ago and now it's time to vote among the posted topics using the conference Trello board.

I wanted to point out to my readers that I have proposed two talks. The first one I gave at the Adobe CF summit last month and was very well-received. You can see the description and VOTE button on each of the following pages:

CF911: Solving Frequent CF Server Problems in New/Better Ways (click to visit, then vote)

The second is one that I gave to the Atlanta CFUG earlier this year.

Updating/Hotfixing ColdFusion 10, 9 and 8: Tips and Traps (click to visit, then vote)

Both are full of surprising and helpful tips, based on my experience helping hundreds of shops with related issues in my CF server troubleshooting services. But the talks are not "sales pitches".

They're goal is to be just like my blog entries here, and my past talks: I just want to help people find, understand, and resolve problems with their CF servers. It's wonderful to be able to help people come away more confident and capable in managing their servers, whether from the consulting sessions, the talks, the blog entries, the cf911.com wiki of cf server troubleshooting resources, the cf411.com site of tools and resources of interest to CFers, and so on.

Anyway, if these talks sound interesting, please go add your votes using the link for each above, and click the vote option that then appears. And of course, vote for all the other talks you think ought to be invited. The board uses your votes, so every vote counts.

Speaking at Atlanta ColdFusion User Group tonight on 2 important topics

Just wanted to note that I'll be speaking tonight at the Atlanta CFUG on two important topics:

For more details on the talks, or to get the slides once I post them (likely right after the meeting), please see the links for the two sessions above.

And if you may want to attend, please RSVP.

I may offer these later on the Online ColdFusion Meetup or perhaps one of the remaining CF conferences this year, if I may be selected to speak.

Recordings from ColdFusion Dev Week (cfdevweek) 2012 Now Posted

[If you're finding this page as a result of searching for recordings from later years, I have a new post on the 2017 recordings.]

If you missed any of the sessions from last week's ColdFusion Dev Week, or want to watch them again, you can now see the recordings for all of them. Just click the link for your desired session on this page.

Note that you do still need to use an Adobe account login to view them.

For my two talks, the direct links (still requiring your Adobe account login) are:
