What we're about

The Online ColdFusion Meetup (https://coldfusionmeetup.com) is about empowering CF users (developers and admins) with presentations on CF and non-CF topics that may be of interest to CFers. Formed in 2005 and hosted since 2007 by Charlie Arehart, the Online CF Meetup has held over 250 presentations given by several dozen speakers.

CF users from anywhere are free to attend. Become a member here (free, joining more than 3,000 others) to get notified of new meetings, optionally participate in ratings and discussions, and more. As an entirely online ColdFusion/CFML user group, we meet irregularly (at times, weekly), as speakers can be arranged.

Indeed, we welcome new speakers, and you can learn more about presenting at https://speak.coldfusionmeetup.com. Generally, our meeting time slots have been Thursdays at either noon or 6pm US Eastern time, though we can be flexible.

All meetings are held at the URL, https://experts.adobeconnect.com/cfmeetup . Use the option there to "log in as guest", enter your name, and wait until just before the meeting starts to be let in.

Meetings are recorded and the URLs are posted (usually within a day of the meeting) at https://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com , which lists all our past meetings (https://www.meetup.com/coldfusionmeetup/events/past/), and offers our youtube playlist (https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLG2EHzEbhy0-QirMKgSxhjkUyTSSTvHjL) of sessions since 2015.

"I Didn’t Know S3 Could Do That!", with Brian Klaas

Online event

We're happy to announce another session of the Online ColdFusion Meetup to be held Thursday Aug 6th at 12pm US Eastern Time, UTC-4. Please note that starting with this meeting, we will be trying alternative online meeting providers, after using Adobe Connect for 15 years. (Its reliance on Flash, among other things, have become a hindrance.) With this first meeting, we will be trying Zoom, including finally the option to dial in! :-) Meeting URL: https://us02web.zoom.us/j/89781670075 Meeting ID:[masked] Phone: [masked] US (New York) Find your local number: https://us02web.zoom.us/u/keeEBtP8VK TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) Millions of developers know Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) as the file system for the Internet: it's fast, cheap, and super durable. CFML developers have dead-simple access to S3 via built-in functionality. S3 goes way beyond just uploading and downloading files, though. By dropping down into the AWS Java SDK, we can unlock the full potential of S3, and that's exactly what we'll do in this session. In this session we'll look at how to: - Secure your files in S3 with time-expiring URLs - Increase security over what's built into the CFML engines by accessing S3 via the Java SDK - Encrypt objects at rest in S3 - Cut your storage costs by using different S3 storage classes - Automatically archive unused files after a set period of time - Use the rock-solid object versioning available in S3 - Use tags to be able to filter and report on millions of objects in S3 ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker) Brian Klaas is the Senior Technology Officer at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health's Center for Teaching and Learning. As the architect for online learning technology at the School, he leads a team that designs and delivers custom online courseware to students and members of the public health workforce around the globe. In addition to designing software and delivering courses, Brian teaches graduate courses on communication design and online learning, and leads faculty training and development. Brian talks a lot about serverless development and AWS, as it's a liberating approach to the art of building applications. Brian has presented on software development and eLearning at conferences throughout the country, including jQuery US, Into the Box, CF Summit, dev.Objective(), NCDevCon, and Adobe MAX. DURATION: Approx. 1 hour, plus time for questions RECORDINGS: All meetings are recorded. The URL will be posted after meeting at https://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com. In addition to those Adobe Connect streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we also post recordings at Youtube usually within a day of the meeting. WANT TO PRESENT? We welcome and indeed seek presentations from anyone wishing to speak about any projects regarding or tangentially related to CF. For more, see https://speak.coldfusionmeetup.com.
