Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday August 11 will be "Introduction to Caching", with Daria Norris.
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
Caching is such a deep and complex subject that it can be difficult to know where to begin. This session will cover the basics of caching in ColdFusion from using page and query caching to using CFCs to cache data and functions into a persistent scope to create a service, as well as the new caching functions in ColdFusion9. We will discuss the pros and cons of each solution and workarounds for caching and refreshing the cache as you need it. You'll be amazed at the difference caching can make for your websites.

What time is that for you? The following link shows [ what the time would be for you (http://permatime.com/US/Eastern/2011-08-11/12:00/) ]. Here's [ another option (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?year=2011&month=08&day=11&hour=12&min=00&sec=0&p1=25) ] that shows the time as US ET, and lets you choose your city from the list offered to see what time that is in your own timezone.
In addition to the streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post recordings at [ Vimeo (http://www.vimeo.com/cfmeetup) ] usually within a day of the meeting.
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 2,600 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, "Export", 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.)
