CFUnited 2010 - Special Room Rate Ends March 31st

March 15, 2010 ·

Update: Lansdowne room rate extended to March 31st!
Just noticed this in the hotel and travel tips for CFUnited 2010:
$179 room rate special ends Monday 3/15/10 - tell your ColdFusion and Flex friends so they don't miss out! Last year the hotel sold out of rooms...
If you're attending CFUnited, you definitely want to stay at the Lansdowne if you possibly can - it's an awesome hotel/resort! - so make sure you don't miss the special room rate (or, worse, miss the room block completely if they sell out like last year!).

CFUnited 2010 - Full Topic List!

March 12, 2010 ·

Today the CFUnited team published the full list of topics for CFUnited 2010 and I'm pretty impressed! In past year's I've grumbled that I've found it a bit hard to fill my schedule but there's a lot of variety this year and a lot of new and exciting topics. The changes to the process for picking submissions has clearly paid dividends. At a quick glance, I saw about 30 sessions that I'd happily attend so I'm looking forward to the scheduler being updated so I can start to plan my days!

State of the CF Union survey results - my thoughts

February 11, 2010 ·

Michael Smith has blogged his thoughts about the state of the CF union survey results. As might be expected from Michael, it's a bit of a "warm fuzzy" reading of the results and a couple of commenters there cautioned against reading too much into the results given the very small number of respondents (compared to the known size of the CF user base). I've been watching the survey results with interest so I figured it was time to post my thoughts. First off, the survey sample is very small. 730 respondents. That's less than 0.1% of all CFers. Second, this represents primarily the CFers that could be reached by a conference organization and blogs / Twitter. That means that it is a distorted sample that by definition leans toward those folks most active and most likely to be either more experienced CFers or those trying to expand their skillset. That all said, let's take a look at the numbers...

State of the CF Union survey

January 15, 2010 ·

Want to win a ticket to CFUnited this year? Help tell the CFUnited team about the "state of the union" in the CF world and a random submission will win a $999-value ticket to attend the conference at the wonderful Lansdowne resort at the end of July! Read their blog post for more details and the link to the survey. Another incentive for completing the survey is seeing the results! As I write this, about 60 people have completed the survey and the results so far already make interesting reading...

CFUnited 2010 - where are the OO submissions?

January 08, 2010 ·

I'm on the advisory board for CFUnited and I'm track chair for content that relates to frameworks and OO development. We're reviewing submissions right now and, although overall there's a lot of topics submitted, I'm surprised at how few we have in the OO and frameworks areas. Mach-II and Model-Glue are well represented in the frameworks area but there's only been one ColdBox submission (and it wasn't from Luis!) and no Fusebox or cfWheels submissions. There's a couple for FW/1 (thank you!), a couple for ColdSpring, one for LightFront and a few general ones. So please feel free to help round that out by submitting framework topics! The OO development pickings were even slimmer - just six submissions so far! C'mon speakers, you can do better than that! Please submit some more OO development topics!
