ABOUT THIS SESSION: After a bit of a summer break the past few weeks, we will have 2 talks for Thursday, August 21. First up will be the ever-popular, Ray(mond) Camden presenting "
CFC 201". Some may recall that Ray was co-organizer of the CF Meetup with me for some time, but he's got so many irons in the fire he had to let that go. We're happy to have him back, especially now that he's a "big executive" at Broadchoice and surely he's even more squeezed for time. :-)
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) This session will discuss ColdFusion Components with the understanding that you already know the syntax, but need some help/direction in how best to use Components.
SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker) Raymond Camden is the VP of Software Development for BroadChoice Inc. A long time ColdFusion user, Raymond has worked on numerous ColdFusion books including the ColdFusion Web Application Construction Kit and has contributed to the Fusion Authority Quarterly Update and the ColdFusion Developers Journal. He also presents at conferences and contributes to online webzines. He founded many community web sites including CFLib.org, ColdFusionPortal.org, ColdFusionCookbook.org and is the author of open source applications, including the popular BlogCFC (www.blogcfc.com) blogging application. Raymond can be reached at his blog (www.coldfusionjedi.com) or via email at [masked]. He is the happily married proud father of three kids and is somewhat of a Star Wars nut.
RECORDING: As always, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted after the meeting at
PODCAST/DOWNLOADABLE RECORDINGS: We will attempt to make this meeting available as a downloadable recording, which will be listed on the recordings page within a few days 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. 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 worthwhile try to add those who have real accounts to the participant list for each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as than you would if logging in with your own Connect account. Thanks.
RSVP, but only if coming: We 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 nearly 1,500 members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-)
FEEDBACK/MEEETING DISCUSSION: We would appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (via the follow-up email sent to members, or via a link on the site). Meetup.com also now offers a meeting-specific discussion area, available on each meeting event page, in addition to the feedback feature. Please feel free to have discussions there about the meeting's topic.
ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: If you would like to easily add this event to your own personal calendar, please note that the page for the event offers a link (on the right) saying, "Add this meeting to your calendar", which offers links to get calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars.

    It's always great hearing Ray present, he mixes humor with substance in way that makes his speaking engagements something to look forward to. The content was concise and focused.
    Thank You

    I liked the part at the end when Ray showed us how the DAO, Gateway, and Bean objects. That was pretty useful as I don't see that type of architecture enough in my own projects.
