Its day 3 of CFUnited, and in the first 2 days, I’ve already attended more sessions than I did in the whole conferece last year. After a number of flight troubles, I arrived slightly too late for the opening morning keynote (I arrived just in time to hear that Tim Buntel was back, oddly, I didnt realize he had left!).
After that, I attended Sean Corfields "Managing CF Components with Factories," which really whet my appetite for ColdSpring.
Later on the first day, I went to John Ashenfelter’s "Agile CF." As development methodologies go, Agile seems worthwhile, but any methodology which preaches "code now, plan later," I have my reservations about the maintainability of applications designed taking too many of these principles to heart.
The first day ended with a free beer event in the expo area, followed by the Pedro v. Beckett Redsox/Mets game in the hotel bar.
Yesterday (Day 2) I started with John Ashenfelter’s "Testing CF Applications," in which he showcased a number of good freeware tools (CFUnit, CFCUnit, Selenium, and Grinder). Some very cool stuff and definitely worth checking out. After that, I went to Sandy Clark’s "CSS positioning" preso. With all my focus on RIA’s and the flash player lately, my CSS has become really rusty. This was definitely a worthwhile session to brush up my skills. Later in the day, I went to see Shlomy’s "Subversion" session, and later Dave Ross’ "ColdSpring"
So far, ColdSpring has is the most intriguing new development in the CF World for me. I have a number of clients who use the Spring framework for their java apps, so i was most intrigued to see how we can now leverage the same for CF.
So far, 2 days, I’ve been to 6 sessions. This must be a record for me (I’m more known to present, than to attend sessions). Last year at CFUnited, i think i attended only 2 or 3 sessions.
Anyhow, this morning, I give my presentation of "Event Gateways in CFMX 7" at 9:45. I’ll be posting the preso and code up here sometime after that.
