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.
