Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday January 26 will be a "Event Gateways", with Kurt Wiersma.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
Have you ever wondered what event gateways are and what they can do for you? If so this session is for you. We will cover how you can use event gateways to execute code asynchronously as well respond to and handle real time events. Practical uses like an online auction, a fantasy football draft, processing file uploads in the background, and others will be discussed.

He recently started a open source project called, AppBooster, which aims to show best practices for using several different frameworks with ColdFusion.
WHEN: Thurs. Jan 26, 6:00pm US ET (UTC/GMT-5)
What time is that for you? The following link shows [ what the time would be for you ]. Here's [ another option ] that shows the time as US ET, and lets you choose your city from the list offered to see what time that is in your own timezone.
In addition to the streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting (link provided above), we now also post recordings at [ Vimeo ] usually within a day of the meeting.
LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE "LOGIN AS GUEST" option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.
RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With over 2,600 members, no worries. :-)
FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.
ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here , you'll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title, saying, "Export", which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
