"ANT on the Wire: Using FTP, Email, SVN, and VSS", with Marc Esher

When: Thursday, Feb 28, 12:00pm EST (GMT-5) (What time is that for you? See
this link which shows the time as EST and you can choose your city from the list offered to see it in your own time.) Meeting URL:
http://experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup/ Duration: Approx. 1 hour Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting on the Meetup Message Board (in the first msg, at
http://tinyurl.com/2d...) We'll have two speakers on Thursday, Feb 28. First up will be Marc Esher on "
ANT on the Wire: Using FTP, Email, SVN, and VSS". I'll have more on the 6pm speaker later in a separate entry.
Description: (provided by the speaker) This is a how-to session on using FTP, Email, Subversion, and VSS access in your ANT build files. It will demonstrate exactly how to configure your environment for using these tasks and will demo all of them. I'll show you where to go in the documentation to learn all about these tasks. In addition, I'll show how all of this comes together in the build we use for MXUnit. A small bonus -- using ANT for version numbering -- will sneak in there, too b/c it's so cool.
Speaker: Marc is a long-time ColdFusion and Java programmer (Sun Certified), currently working in the brokerage industry. He is also a contributor to the MXUnit unit testing framework for ColdFusion. His primary professional interests are building "really big, complex systems", team-building, and process improvement. He is married, with children. His rare spare time is usually spent with scotch and a cigar.
RECORDING: Again, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted on the Meetup Message Board after the meeting, which can be reached directly via
LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE LOGIN AS A GUEST. Do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password. The login screen presented there has no connection to meetup.com. And if you have a real Connect account, don't use that either. Just sign in as a guest. It's just not worth the time to try to track who RSVPs and add them manually as participants in each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as when you would login with your own account. Thanks.
RSVP: As always, 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. BTW,
no need to RSVP if you can't make it nor even explain why you can't. With 1,300+ members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-) We'll also appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (also offered via a follow-up email or via a link on the site).

    Meeting was good. We could benifit from what we learned in the session. The chat between people were also helpful, which passed many useful information.

    What this guy does with ANT is amazing. He was fair that he wasn't going to explain in detail. Now if his audience was experienced Ant'ers his presentation might have been fine. But somehow I suspect it was rank beginners like me.

    Needs to divide presentation into groups with some more sessions.

    The speaker took too long on the first topic and therefore had to rush the rest of the presentation

    I was having an issue with the sound going in and out and missed a few key points. Other than that it was a great topic

    Too much covered in one presentation. Would prefer to see a focus on one use for ant like svn.

    My experience is probably lower than it should be, but I was looking more for an intro to ANT and was hoping for more of that. I'm sure the presentation was very useful to those who had a better understanding of ANT to begin with. The presenter seemed very well prepared, but some of it went a little over my head (as he explained at the beginning in the "what this is *not*" section.
