cf.Objective() 2012 - Call for Speakers

October 21, 2011 ·

The call for speakers for cf.Objective() 2012 is now open. You can either submit proposals for something you'd like to talk about or make suggestions for topics you'd like to see someone else talk about.

Right now, I don't know whether I'll submit any proposals. I'm not sure what topics I'd like to promote. I don't want to do another "Intro to FW/1" (but I'd be very happy to see others continue to promote FW/1 - and I'd hope someone will mention DI/1 alongside FW/1!) and most of the non-FW/1 stuff I've been doing has been Clojure, at least in terms of open source projects. If you have ideas for something you'd really like me to submit a proposal on, let me know!

    Maybe management tips on how to manage a guy like Charlie Griefer? He seems like a handful. ;)

    Not directly related to cf.Objective(), but I'd very much like to learn more about how you're using Clojure within CF. I've purchased a few books about Clojure, read parts of them, and followed what you've written so far on your blog.

    At one point you wrote that you're in the process of replacing the model portion of the WorldSingles app with Clojure. I'm really curious what that looks like, especially in that Clojure isn't an object oriented language. I've also read that you've moved to a nosql solution, MongoDB. I'm equally curious how that architecture is structured.

    @Nando, I'm developing a series of blog posts called, collectively, "Real World Clojure" where I'll look at various parts of our application and how we're using Clojure. It won't deal much with the CFML interop part tho' (since it's aimed at the Clojure community). I do need to get the examples and documentation around cfmljure updated so that folks can get up and running easily with CFML and Clojure together, however!
