Life at Broadchoice

May 28, 2008 ·

May has been a quiet month on the blog because it has been an extremely busy month at Broadchoice. We completed our 2.0.2 and 2.0.3 releases and launched the new platform with a fair bit of press coverage. The platform is powered by ColdFusion 8.0.1, running Model-Glue 2 (BER), ColdSpring 1.2 BER and Transfer 1.0 BER and runs on a cluster of 64-bit Linux servers with synchronization of the Transfer cache managed through a set of ActiveMQ JMS server instances. The database is MySQL. We're continuing to work on a stream of minor releases as well as planning our next major release with a lot of new features. I'll be pulling together some presentations and articles about how we're using the frameworks together (because I think we're doing some interesting and unusual things, behind the scenes). I'll some a few snippets of code at Scotch in both of my presentations (and again at CFUNITED). I'm talking to the CFDevcon organizers about appropriate topics and they suggested a framework-related session so that might be the first unveiling of some of our ColdSpring / Transfer tricks and tips. I expect Ray will also be blogging about some aspects of our application architecture in due course. Feel free to sign up for a free Broadchoice account and see what we've been up to! Our support site (also powered by the Broadchoice Web Platform, as is our public website - we like to eat our own dog food!) has several ways for you to provide feedback to us!

Speakers look forward to CFUNITED

May 19, 2008 ·

Some sound bite interviews with speakers about what they're looking forward to at CFUNITED this year. Open BlueDragon gets several mentions as the "hot topic" for various speakers. And we're all looking forward to beer. Except Sandy who prefers red wine.

CFUNITED adds two more Adobe ColdFusion team speakers

May 09, 2008 ·

CFUNITED just announced two new topics from Adobe ColdFusion team members Chandan Kumar (PDF documents and forms) and Manju Kiran (64-bit ColdFusion). They join Rupesh Kumar, who will be talking about cfthread. It's great to see more of the Bangalore-based ColdFusion team attending conferences! It's good for us to put faces to the ultra-smart guys who build the product we love. It's good for those engineers to meet and talk with the customers who use what they build.

CFUNITED - Event-Driven Programming in ColdFusion

April 15, 2008 ·

I just got word from Liz at TeraTech that my Event-Driven Programming in ColdFusion talk has proved popular enough that it will be repeated on Saturday (yes, CFUNITED has posted its Saturday schedule!). So come along and hear me talk at 1:30pm on Thursday (6/19) or 8:30am on Saturday (6/21)!

CFUNITED - My Interview

April 15, 2008 ·

As is traditional, CFUNITED is publishing brief interviews with all of their speakers. My interview about event-driven programming in ColdFusion has just been published today. I mention Edmund briefly and I'll be blogging more about that in due course. Since the interviewed was "recorded" I have indeed started using Edmund at Broadchoice to manage the workflows in our scheduled tasks.

Scotch on the Rocks and CFUNITED are real

April 08, 2008 ·

Following my tradition that conferences are only real once my flights are booked, both Scotch and CFUNITED just became reality for me. $3,800. Ouch! That's return flights for me and my wife for SFO/LHR and SFO/DCA. With cfDevCon later in the year, plus several more cat show flights to book, at least we'll both be Premier flyers on United next year! See you at cf.Objective() in early May? Or Scotch in early June? Or CFUNITED later in June? By the way, today is the last day for the guaranteed hotel price for cf.Objective() so if you haven't registered and booked your hotel, you might want to get on that tonight!
