Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Dec 15 will be "Realtime with WebSockets", with Giancarlo Gomez. (Topic description and speaker bio below.)


TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

WebSockets are here! Are you taking advantage of this technology yet? If not, ColdFusion makes it really simple as of version 10. In this presentation I will cover how to get WebSockets working on your app/site and discuss real life pitfalls that I have encountered in the trenches on my own applications. I’ll also cover tips and tricks to debugging WebSockets that will help you overcome common obstacles. ABOUT THE SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

Owner Fuse Developments, Inc

"Giancarlo Gomez is a full-stack developer with over 15 years experience with various languages, technologies and a passion to continue to learn. He has been a designer, developer and project lead for several companies stateside and can even say this path took him across the pond years back for a piece of software he wrote that required installation and configuration. The internet was much slower back then and a flight was required ☺. He is the owner/lead developer of Fuse Developments, Inc. established in 2004, his consulting business specializing in web and mobile development and CrossTrackr, Inc., a SaaS for the CrossFit community, targeted towards athletes and gym owners providing real-time insight into athletic progress and health metrics.

He is also the co-manager for the South Florida Adobe ColdFusion Users Group. You can find him on Twitter and GitHub and read his occasional ramblings at . On his spare time, he plays with his kids and occasionally stares at his wall of guitars remembering the good old days of traveling and playing music on stages".
