The Meetup along with Charlie Arehart, have provided anyone willing to listen the ability to learn. The range of topics allows most any developer to find something of interest.

“ Personally, I think this is an awesome place to come in contact with other ColdFusion developers. You may even catch Ray Camden and other well known CF developers/celebrities. It's not a good place to learn ColdFusion. It follows a User Group format, so the topics reflect the various speakers interest or needs and not necessarily newbies needs. That said, you will learn new things and more importantly you'll become better rounded. Charlie is always looking for speakers so if you have something to share this is also a good place for you. More importantly, it is of great value for those who are geographically speaking forbidden from attending a ColdFusion Use Group. This is a large group, if you join, be kind, respectful, and whatever you do don't get off topic. ”
