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 270 presentations given by several dozen speakers.

CF users from anywhere are free to attend. Become a member here (free, joining thousands of 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.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

Every developer's journey has to start somewhere. This session is designed to give new developers and business owners an overview of ColdFusion, and why it's one of the most amazing development languages available. You will learn, from a very broad perspective, the basics of how ColdFusion works, some simple ColdFusion syntax, an overview of the major ColdFusion frameworks, an overview of the developer community and various ColdFusion resources, and some facts and misconceptions.

This presentation is specifically targeted towards new developers or business owners who have little to no knowledge of ColdFusion.

ABOUT THE SPEAKERS: (provided by the speaker)

David Byers has been a developer for over 20 years and is a strong advocate of ColdFusion. He is a storyteller, and active on the ColdFusion Community Portal. He lives in Las Vegas with his wife, three cats and four house bunnies.


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.


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.
