CFDevCon (and other UK news)

August 26, 2008 ·

Unfortunately, CFDevCon has collapsed due to lack of funds. I felt they were ambitious trying to plan yet another CFML conference in England after we'd already had CFUNITED Europe and Scotch on the Rocks, and so close to Flash on the Beach (and another web dev conference just before?) and then MAX Europe in Milan shortly after. Hopefully they'll be back next year with a better date. Despite that, I'm still going to be in England around that time (since my wife is judging a cat show in Telford in early October). So, I'll still be speaking at the Devon CFUG on Monday, September 29th, about Design Patterns. I'll also probably be speaking at Thames Valley CFUG in late September (still working that out with Kevin Roche). I'll also be speaking at a one-day CFML event in London - along with several other folks that y'all might know! Entrance will be just ten quid, cash, on the door (and will include two free drinks). See Big Mad Kev's blog post for more details.

    Shame. I wasn't going to go, having already been to Scotch, and my company wouldn't pay for anyone to go to two conferences in a year. Maybe Scotch and CFDevCon should alternate year about?

    I think Andy Allan does a very good job of promoting Scotch on the blogs and mailing lists, whereas I was barely aware of CFDevCon.

    @Duncan, maybe you should go to the one-day event in London instead? It's going to have a very attractive price...

    My wife and I planning a vacation around CFDevCon so will be touring London when CFDevCon was supposed to happen. I will have to look into this new event and see if makes sense for me to attend or speak.

    @Kurt, see my follow-up blog post (and I've updated this post to include links now that A Wee Dram has been announced).
