BACFUG Code Share Night This Week

August 15, 2010 ·

From the BACFUG website:

We are going to do something different in August. Instead having a presenter, we'll ask attendees to share their code, projects or pose problems which the group will work through together. Bring along your laptop so we can talk through the code. If you have concerns about not writing "perfect" code, don't let that stop you from attending. I KNOW my code isn't perfect and I'll be sharing my recent project. Peer review is one of the best ways to become a better programmer. The experienced members of the group are very supportive. Also, sharing your code is NOT required. Feel free to attend and learn from how others code.


  • 6:30pm - 6:45pm meet and greet
  • 6:45pm - 8:30pm - code share
  • 8:30pm - raffle off some books, etc.

Comparing Application Frameworks recording

April 16, 2009 ·

Last night I presented to BACFUG on ColdBox, Mach-II and Model-Glue. I just posted the recording of the presentation to Charlie Arehart's UGTV. I've edited the recording to remove some of the chatter at the beginning and end which is why it will seem to jump in without my usual biographic introduction and cuts off at the start of Q&A.

Two Bay Area ColdFusion User Groups!

March 19, 2009 ·

I'm very pleased to report that the Bay Area has not just one ColdFusion User Group but two! In addition to BACFUG, which has been around longer than the user group program itself, we now have the East Bay CFUG courtesy of Charlie Griefer (Amcom) and James Morrow (Planitax). The inaugural meeting of the East Bay CFUG will be Tuesday, April 7th, hosted by Planitax in Alameda. It's a great facility - Planitax hosted BACFUG's meeting last night - so you can expect meetings to be broadcast and recorded if you're remote and a chance at foosball and darts if you turn up in person!
