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.

    CFUniform has features that I consider superior to the new CF8 CFForms features...for example the calendar with dropdowns for Months and Years (a must in my applications) and the ease of displaying error messages in various formats.

    Kudos to Matt and Dan...

    The presentation was great, no real hiccups. Dan jumped from point to point with great timing and educated us all very nicely.

    When I originally saw this tag library I thought it was yet another form generator but its much more then just that, after seeing how its implemented, used and capable of, I'm sold.

    Dan is a "pro" presenter. He has the uncanny knack for keeping audiences engaged even though he can't "see" them (and vice versa). His presentation on CFUniform was top-notch and very well done. Dan walked through several variations of form fields and how CFUniform could be used to a) easily and quickly build a form using CFUniform b) make the form completely XHTML accessible (including the use of CSS) and c) how to customize/modify forms when using CFUniform to create web-based forms using ColdFusion.
