CFUnited 2010 - where are the OO submissions?

January 8, 2010 ·

I'm on the advisory board for CFUnited and I'm track chair for content that relates to frameworks and OO development. We're reviewing submissions right now and, although overall there's a lot of topics submitted, I'm surprised at how few we have in the OO and frameworks areas. Mach-II and Model-Glue are well represented in the frameworks area but there's only been one ColdBox submission (and it wasn't from Luis!) and no Fusebox or cfWheels submissions. There's a couple for FW/1 (thank you!), a couple for ColdSpring, one for LightFront and a few general ones. So please feel free to help round that out by submitting framework topics! The OO development pickings were even slimmer - just six submissions so far! C'mon speakers, you can do better than that! Please submit some more OO development topics!

    There seems to be a fairly lively discussion on this at the CFwheels google group...

    How about: Developing OO Based Fusebox applications with J2EE Design patterns. I just submitted it.

    @Kevin, we should not use the JEE design patterns as a guide for CFML applications. Some of those design patterns simply don't apply - they've been created to address JEE-specific concerns.

    I've seen only a few good design pattern presentations aimed at CFers and a lot of bad ones so I'm very leery of topics with titles like that!
