ABOUT THIS SESSION: Out 6pm talk on Thursday Nov 13 will be Peter Bell on "Iterating Business Objects - Who Needs Them?"
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: If you're looked into Object Oriented programming in CF, you may have heard of the Iterating Business Object (IBO). But what exactly is it and why would you consider using this approach in your applications? In this one hour presentation we'll look at the problems that the IBO solves, how it works, and why you might want to start using it in your OO CF applications.
SPEAKER: Peter Bell is a passionate advocate of Application Generation and meta-programming in ColdFusion and writes the popular Application Generation blog ( He has lectured internationally on using ColdFusion for application generation and to create software product lines and runs a company (
http://www.systemsfor...) that generates custom applications quickly and cost effectively.

    I am inspired to take my objects to a new level. Til now, I have been working with what I call 'pseudo' objects -- such as an cfc function that only populates form variables. The issues of display and consistency are ones I have snippets to deal with, but Peter's talk has me rethinking my efforts. I'll be moving up from riding a tricycle to driving a car. I'll get "there" faster and with less pedaling <wink>

    Thanks to Peter and Charlie!
