First CFUnited Preview: "New in CFMX 6&7: What Did You Miss?"

As I mentioned in the last entry, we will begin doing CFUnited previews on the Online ColdFusion Meetup.

I've been asked to step up to the plate first. While I'm doing a few sessions at the conference (including two on Scorpio, more about those later), Michael Smith has asked me to preview my day-long class, "New in CFMX 6&7: What Did You Miss?"

Now, I'm sure some are thinking, "you're kidding? We're on the verge of CF8, and you want to talk about CF 6 and 7?" But hear me out. Actually, I'll let my description do the talking:

Planning to move to CF8? Did you skip either 6 or 7? Or have you perhaps installed and been running on them but doing little or no new development? Were you paying attention as all the new features (and folks' experiences using them) were being shared? There may be a lot you've missed. Veteran CFML developer Charlie Arehart will introduce both the key features introduced in those releases as well as many hidden gems. It's surprising how many little things get slipped into releases, and point releases, and sometimes it's those which can be as important to you as any prominent feature.

In his typical encyclopedic but pragmatic style, Charlie will help you make the most out of features you may have missed. Of course, this is just a 20- minute preview of what is in fact a day-long course. But it will give a taste of what's to expect and will provide value in and of itself.

The URL for RSVP'ing via the meetup site is http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/calendar/5756012/. There you can RSVP for the meeting as well as sign up to get notifications about future Online ColdFusion Meetups.

The URL for the Acrobat Connect session itself will be http://experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup/, and indeed that will be the URL for all future Online ColdFusion Meetup sessions.

Just want to announce that the Online ColdFusion Meetup which Ray and I run will have three, count 'em three, online presentations this week. Step right up, get your fill of CF presentation goodness.

First, Thursday at 6, see Steve Bryant on "DataMgr Component Set: Easy Data Access without an ORM". Get more info and/or RSVP, as well as get the online meeting URL at http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/calendar/5667225/. This should last about an hour.

Then on Friday, we'll have two half-hour talks which are previews of the same talks being given by the speakers at next week's cf.Objective() conference in Minneapolis, MN, May 3-6.

At 10:30 on Friday, we'll have Dean Saxe, on "Security and the SDLC: Threat Modeling". Get more info and/or RSVP, as well as get the online meeting URL at http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/calendar/5708602/. This should last about 30 minutes.

Finally, at 3pm, we'll have Mark Mandel on "Developing Applicatons With Transfer ORM". Again, get more info and/or RSVP, as well as get the online meeting URL at http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/calendar/5708652/. This should also last about 30 minutes.

Yes, they will also all be recorded. For more on the Online CF Meetup and more about my and Ray's taking it on recently, see the links to previous blog entries below.

First Online ColdFusion Meetup (Virtual User Group) set for Thursday, 6pm Easter, with Jacob Munson

Folks, the first online Coldfusion Meetup (virtual user group meeting) will be held tomorrow night, at 6pm Eastern, with Jake Munson speaking on "Attack of the Spam Bots". You can learn more, including the URL for attending, at http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/. We'd appreciate your RSVPing.

I mentioned in an entry a couple weeks ago that Ray Camden and I are reviving the Meetup which Steven Erat had started and had to step down from due to time constraints.

It's an online ColdFusion user group, where you can watch and participate via Acrobat Connect. The meeting will also be recorded and the URL for that will be posted to meetup members as well as in my UGTV repository of recorded presentations, which now has over 100 from over 80 speakers.
