Our 11am, yes that's 11am, (US ET) talk on Thursday Nov 2 will be "Busting ColdFusion myths with the present and the future of ColdFusion", with Adobe CF Product Manager, Rakshith Naresh. My apologies for the last minute notice, which is entirely my fault.
Also sorry for the odd start time, but this is what worked best for him, and I really wanted to get this talk on ASAP as I think all CF folks need to hear what Rakshith has to say, after I've seen him present the talk at recent conferences.
(Topic description and speaker bio below.)
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
Need more reasons to fall in love with the technology that has defined your career as a web developer? Then this is the session to attend. This session will walk you through the journey that ColdFusion has had so far as well as give you an insight into the strong future that ColdFusion has with data points to back every single claim made. So the next time anyone challenges you on the viability of ColdFusion as a technology, you will have all the answers you need to defend your favorite technology.
