The Frameworks Conference was great!

February 3, 2007 ·

Those of you who attended will already know how good the conference was. Those of you who could have attended but chose not to missed out on many excellent talks and a lot of valuable networking. And good food - probably the best conference food I've ever had! I mostly followed the schedule I posted a week before the conference although after I finished my talk, I was caught in the hallways and missed both Oguz's and Matt's talks. I got caught again at lunch and missed the start of Nat's session too. Highlights of the conference for me (in no particular order):
  • Steve Nelson's "CFCs ARE the Framework"
  • Peter Bell's "Application Generation - Beyond Scaffolding"
  • John Paul Ashenfelter's "Rails for the Ruby-Impaired"
  • The food! Did I mention the food was great?
It was great to chat to so many CFers who (for the most part) are fans of frameworks. There was also a very productive Team Fusebox meeting and we now have leaders for a number of areas where the team will focus as part of the big drive you're going to see around Fusebox - the website, the framework and the community. You'll be hearing a lot more about Fusebox from me over the coming months as I lead the development of Fusebox 6, based on community involvement!

    I saw a little coverage in the blogs about Steve Nelson's presentation, but not much. Do you know if he'll be putting anything online as a followup? I'd like to check out what he had to say.

    Yes, keep an eye on where he'll post the code and preso...

    Sounds like a great conference. Sorry I missed it. Unfortunately the budget didn't allow me to attend. :-( Will the presentations be posted online at some point?

    @James, I expect most speakers will publish their presos and code and (I think) TeraTech plan to post it all as well. In addition, TeraTech recorded every session and will be releasing them as a podcast.
