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.

Meeting URL: https://experts.adobeconnect.com/cfmeetup/ TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) The JavaScript ecosystem moves fast. In the last few years, the ecosystem has consolidated into several dominant choices like React, Angular, and Vue.js.

At the end of this talk, you’ll be better prepared to make the best choice for your company.

"How Native Mobile Development Changed the Way I Write Web Apps", w/ TJ VanToll

We're happy to announce another session of the Online ColdFusion Meetup, "How Native Mobile Development Changed the Way I Write Web Apps", with TJ VanToll, to be held Thursday July 16 at 12pm US Eastern Time, UTC-4. Meeting URL: https://experts.adobeconnect.com/cfmeetup/ TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker) Web developers tend to be unabashed defenders of the web platform, and tend to view native mobile platforms as proprietary, gated and bloated. As a long-time web developer I felt this way too, but then something unexpected happened: I joined the dark side, and spent five years of my career working on—*gasp*—iOS and Android applications. Now, like an explorer returning from a multi-year safari—I have so much to share! In this talk I’ll discuss how native development has improved the way I write code for the web, and how you can incorporate the best native app performance and testing tips into your web workflows. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker) TJ VanToll is a front-end developer, author, and a Principal Developer Advocate for Progress. TJ has over a decade of web development experience, including a few years working on the jQuery and NativeScript teams. Nowadays, he helps web developers build awesome UIs with KendoReact. 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.
