Scotch - make mine a double

February 01, 2008 ·

Scotch on the Rocks has just posted its initial list of sessions and it looks like I'll be giving both of the talks I submitted:
  • Getting Dynamic with ColdFusion
  • Event-Driven Programming in ColdFusion
The second talk is the same one I'll be giving at CFUNITED a few weeks later (so you can read more about it in the CFUNITED Frameworks track). The first talk will take a look at all of the amazing things you can do in ColdFusion - because it is dynamic language - that you cannot do in Java. Hopefully, it'll give you some new ideas about how to solve problems faster and more idiomatically in ColdFusion!

Speaking at CFUNITED 2008

November 20, 2007 ·

TeraTech have just announced the first few topics in the frameworks track and my talk "Event-Driven Programming in ColdFusion" is on the list.
We're starting to see a lot of interest in event-driven programming because Flex demands it, AJAX uses it to some extent and some popular application frameworks use this approach (ColdBox, Mach-II, Model-Glue). This talk looks at expanding this technique to other aspects of ColdFusion programming. If Flex looks alien to you, this talk should let you get your head around the techniques in a familiar environment, helping you get ready for Flex.
I've also submitted this to Scotch on the Rocks 2008. I submitted a second topic to CFUNITED 2008 (and Scotch on the Rocks) that covers dynamic programming techniques. I don't know whether that will be accepted for either conference but if it isn't and there's enough interest, I may go ahead and write it up for user groups or online presentation.

Edmund - Event-Driven Model Framework

October 24, 2007 ·

Since there seems to be some interest in this, I created a mailing list for the project. Quoting from the group's about page:
Event-Driven Model Framework for ColdFusion. The name? EDM = Event-Driven Model, Mund = mouth (German), Mund = ancestral rule over the family / disciplinary power over members of the family / responsibility to protect the family (Old English). Edmund is also one of my cats :)

Event-Driven Model Framework?

October 23, 2007 ·

As folks start adopting more AJAX and Flex for their applications, I see a lot of questions about "how to use <insert favorite HTML framework> to handle AJAX/Flex calls?" This is based on two things (in my opinion - putting on my flame-retardant suit)...
