Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Apr 21 will be "MediaSlurp and the Adobe Stack", with Vicky Ryder, which is a run-through of the talk she'll be giving at cf.Objective (http://www.cfobjective.com/).
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
MediaSlurp is a popular tool that delivers community-driven content to your desktop. The presentation gives an overview of how it was built by three people, in three weeks, leveraging the Adobe stack and community libraries: AIR, airORM, Flex, BlazeDS, ColdFusion 9 ORM, ColdSpring and Swiz. This presentation would give an overview of how the application works and an open QA about the tools, process and the MediaSlurp application.

Vicky is a freelance developer who began her I.T. career as an MCSE certified network engineer, eventually working her way up to a managerial position. While serving in this role for a major financial publishing corporation’s Washington, D.C. office, Vicky taught herself ColdFusion and developed applications that improved workflow up to the corporate level. Her most notable application garnered a regional Advancement of Technology award. Since then, Vicky has broadened her knowledge of Social Media and now runs CodeBass, a team blog focused on music, sound, and the cross-promotion of Adobe technology platforms of which she is both a devoted user and fan.

RECORDING: As always, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted after the meeting at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com .
In addition to the streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post downloadable recordings (FLV, MP3, MP4, and WMV) usually within a few days after the meeting, also offered as a link from the recordings page.
LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE USE THE "LOGIN AS GUEST" option, and USE YOUR NAME, but do NOT attempt to use your meetup.com username/password or any Connect account. Just sign in as a guest.
RSVP, but only if coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With over 2,400 members, no worries. :-)
FEEDBACK/MEETING DISCUSSION: Members will receive an email after the meeting or can click a link on the event page to offer. Note also the meeting-specific discussion area there at the bottom, in addition to the one-chance feedback feature on the right. Feel free to engage in discussions about the meeting topic.
ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you'll see an option at the top of the event page, just below the event title, saying, "Add to my calendar", which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that meetup.com has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
