Frameworks Conference - See you there?

January 17, 2007 ·

Today's TeraTech newsletter announced that I will be attending the Frameworks Conference in a few weeks. As it says in the newsletter, "Last minute discussions with TeraTech convinced me - and my manager - that I had to be there." I was bummed about missing the last Frameworks Conference so I'm very pleased that I'm going to be attending this one. I'm very excited about meeting all those frameworks enthusiasts and attending all those great sessions - although I haven't studied the schedule in enough depth yet to decide exactly which sessions. I'll be speaking (you might say "of course"). About Fusebox 5 and 5.1 (you might not be surprised by that either). In particular, I'm going to be speaking about "Extending the language of Fusebox", showing the power of custom lexicons and touching on domain specific languages and expressiveness. Fusebox is the only framework that lets you extend the XML language that you use to describe the "event handlers" in your controller layer. That allows you to use a rich, expressive style of programming that makes your applications easier to maintain and much faster to develop. I got the 8am slot on Friday which mean I'll be competing with people's hangovers and, unfortunately, Kurt Wiersma's talk about ColdSpring which I would have really liked to have attended. Given the selection of topics at the conference, it would be hard to pick a slot that didn't conflict with something I wanted to attend so that's just the luck of the draw. See you in a couple of weeks in Washington, DC? Remember, registration is still open for the conference!

    I hoped to be able to attend but it doesn't look like its going to happen. What a shame too, the frameworks conference is a great time. If I don't see you there, feel free to stop by for a beer... I am walking distance from the conference.
