We have exciting news! Adobe is embarking upon a world-wide tour of

user groups to publicize the next versions of ColdFusion and Flex, as

well as the first releases of Bolt and Flash Catalyst, two new tools

for developing ColdFusion and Flex applications. We have been selected, IECFUG, as a stop on the tour, and our event will be held on Tuesday, June

16th at 7:00 PM in room P2-7 of the C/L/A building at Cal Poly Pomona.

So if you will be attending, please fill out our RSVP Form at:

We are fortunate to have Josh Adams from Adobe as our presenter for

the evening:

Systems Incorporated. In this role, Josh supports the ColdFusion sales

team throughout North America. Josh is passionate about ColdFusion and

the ColdFusion community: he presents regularly to User Groups and

conferences throughout North America and is a longtime member, past

President, and current Director of the Atlanta ColdFusion User Group.

Josh will be speaking about what's coming up in both the ColdFusion

and Flex realms, so this promises to be a jam-packed session:

The Adobe ColdFusion team is hitting the road to discuss Centaur, the

next version of ColdFusion, and Bolt -- code name for the highly

anticipated first ColdFusion IDE from Adobe. Learn about exciting new

features and discover how Centaur and Bolt will accelerate your

ColdFusion application development.

Come learn about the newest features in the Flex 4 framework, Flex

Builder 4 and the newest Adobe product -- Flash Catalyst. See product

feature demos, and learn how the new Flex framework powers both Flash

Catalyst and Flex Builder to speed the development and testing of rich

Internet applications and content.

We're going to have plenty of food and drink, as well as some great

giveaways, including Adobe software. This promises to be a fantastic

evening that you won't want to miss!

Back From CF.Objective

I got back from CF.Objective this Saturday night and what a great conference. I had the privilege to speak for my second year at CF.Objective and I really enjoy this conference. The high energy and advanced topics is definitely what I enjoyed the most. For this year the sessions that I really enjoyed where Marc Esher's Test Driven Development, Sean Corfield's CFSpec discussion, the Git BOF, the Railo BOF and the new ORM cf9 features.

I think the most enjoyable BOF I attended was git lead by Peter Bell and Simeon Bateman, those guys KNOW THEIR STUFF!! Peter even posted the git pressos that I will be studying for quite a while. I am really starting to consider more an more a move to GIT for the entire ColdBox suite. Simeon had some EXCELLENT day to day cases and great explanations of how GIT differs from SVN. Thanks Simeon and Peter!!

Another important part of CF.Objective where my mocking and testing discussions with Bill Shelton from the MXUnit Team. It was uncanny that we where both developing some kind of mocking frameworks and our ideas where eerily similar. We definitely got our Mock On and discussed so many improvements for the upcoming MXUnit MightyMock and the new ColdBox Addition: MockBox!! I really enjoyed our session Bill and hopefully we can join forces on this one!!
