When: Thursday, Mar 20, 6:00pm EDT (GMT-4) (What time is that for you? See this link which shows the time as EDT 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 at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com We'll have just one speaker on Thursday, Mar 20, at 6pm, with Jim Priest on "Introduction To Ant ". Description: (provided by the speaker) Starting with a simple "Hello World" example we will cover basic Ant concepts and techniques including interacting with files, database interactions, SVN and more. By the end of the presentation we will have created a basic Ant buildfile which you can use to deploy your projects and automate your common developer tasks. Speaker: Jim Priest is a husband, father of two, developer, and avid motorcyclist. He currently works for Lockheed Martin as a senior software development analyst. Find him online at thecrumb.com where he maintains an extensive list of Ant resources (and other stuff!) on his wiki: www.thecrumb.com/wiki/ant. RECORDING: Again, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted after the meeting at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com. 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 real name, but 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).
