With FW/1 Version 2.2 just around the corner - after a long time in incubation - and FW/1 itself being almost four and a half years old, it's a good time to look ahead at what's in store.

As both Scotch on the Rocks and cf.Objective() broaden their range of topics to include more general web development topics, and other languages alongside CFML, it seemed like a good idea to submit a talk to both that would fit both "web development" and "other languages" as well as having a tie-in to CFML...

I'm providing a brief summary here of what sessions I attended, followed by some general commentary about the event. As I said last time, if you can only attend one conference a year, this should be the one.

On July 13th, 2011 Robert C. Martin (aka "Uncle Bob") gave a talk at Skills Matter in London called The Last Programming Language. He was scheduled to give a version of it as the keynote for ACCU 2011, a conference I remember with fondness from my days back in England as a member of the Association of C and C++ Users! You can read Martin's blog post about the talk here but note there's a $2 charge to watch the version linked from that blog post - the Skills Matter version linked above is free.
TL;DR: He asks whether we've exhausted all possible programming paradigms and languages and whether we should now consider a single standardized programming language (and offers a suggestion of what that might be). Preposterous?

This year's cf.Objective() was the biggest, most successful ever: more attendees, more speakers, more tracks, more content, more sponsors, lightning talks, BOFs, ad hoc sessions - more, more, more! Yet it still managed to maintain the great ratio of attendees to speakers that gives people a small conference feel with great networking opportunities.
