SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)

Rakshith Naresh is the new Product Manager for ColdFusion. Though Rakshith recently took charge of Product Management for ColdFusion, he is not new to ColdFusion. He has worked as a Computer Scientist for Adobe in the ColdFusion Engineering Team for five years. His passion for ColdFusion is evident through the features he has built for ColdFusion 8, ColdFusion 9 and even for the upcoming release codenamed Zeus. He is excited to carry forward this passion in his new role as the Product Manager for ColdFusion. He has built various features for ColdFusion 8 and ColdFusion 9, such as ColdFusion Ajax, AIR integration, improved Flash Remoting, MXML tags for ColdFusion Services, and so forth. Rakshith enjoys speaking at conferences and interacting with the ColdFusion community. He has spoken at various conferences including CFUnited, WebDU and Adobe MAX. When not at work, Rakshith loves to be outdoors taking a trek or a long run. Rakshith can be found on Twitter: @rakshithn
