cf.Objective() 2014 - call for speakers!

October 21, 2013 · No Comments

The cf.Objective() 2014 Call for Speakers is open until November 1st so you have just under two weeks to submit your topics. You can also vote for existing topic submission at that same link.

Right now we've only had two general CFML topics submitted (and seven ColdBox-related ones!) but there's a good number of JavaScript-related submissions - and remember that cf.Objective() has a dedicated JavaScript track in js.Objective(), as well as a mobile/front-end track so it's more than a CFML conference... but we still want to see a good spread of CFML topics!

And if you want to submit non-CFML web development topics that you think would appeal to a CFML / JS audience in terms of broadening their skills, you should do that too! Last year Scott Stroz did an excellent talk about Groovy on Grails, and I touched on some advanced CFML techniques inspired by other languages in my polyglot talk.

Note: when you submit a talk, please make sure to follow the guidelines outlined in this blog post about cf.Objective() 2014 submission format!

My cf.Objective() 2013 Presentations

May 12, 2013 · 1 Comment

Other than noting back in January that all three(!) of my talk proposals were accepted, I haven't blogged about them since, so the only information about them is on the cf.Objective() web site. The session overviews give a fair sense of what you should get out of each presentation and roughly what they'll cover.

Polyglot projects?

June 23, 2011 · 7 Comments

In the LinkedIn ColdFusion Groups I recently asked the following question:

For the last three or four years, my CFML projects have general had other languages mixed in on the backend (Groovy, Scala, Clojure). I was wondering how many other people are leveraging the Java/JVM interoperability in CFML to take advantage of other languages?

What sorts of things have you done and why?

And if not, why not?

Several folks replied that they either didn't use other languages with CFML or they use a bit of Java. Several people also asked me to explain why I chose those other languages and how I integrated them with CFML. I replied to the group at some length but today on Twitter Aaron Greenlee asked me the same question and encouraged me to blog it for everyone to read. So, here it is...
