Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday February 16 will be a "Cloudy with a Chance of Tests", with Mike Henke. (This is a rescheduling of his talk set for Feb 2, which could not happen due to problems with the Adobe Connect server. First time in 216 shows, so let's not hold it against them.) And if you'd like to see a preview, he did a 15-minute one at http://t.co/xHDPQhHt .
TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)
We will introduce CI (continuous integration) concepts and benefits. Hopefully you have seen presentations over ant, setting up Jenkins, unit testing and refactoring your code. I always walk away thinking this is awesome but it can be a daunting process to get everything working in one step. This presentation will walk you through a bridge, an intermediate step, you can use immediately in your projects to get usable feedback from Jenkins on your cfml code.
MEETING URL: http://experts.acrobat.com/cfmeetup/
DURATION: Approx. 1 hour
RECORDING: All meetings are recorded. The URL will be posted after meeting at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com
SPEAKER: (provided by the speaker)
I have worked with ColdFusion since 1999 for several companies. I am an advocate of Eclipse, Source Control, Mylyn, and anything to make developing ColdFusion more productive and easier. My main focus currently is learning Git, Ruby on Rails, and ColdFusion on Wheels. I am an Adobe Community Professional. I have spoken at several user groups and enjoy talking to people about ColdFusion.
WHEN: Thurs. Feb 16, 6:00pm US ET (UTC/GMT-5)
What time is that for you? The following link shows [ what the time would be for you (http://permatime.com/US/Eastern/2012-02-16/18:00/) ]. Here's [ another option (http://www.timeanddate.com/worldclock/fixedtime.html?msg=Online+ColdFusion+Meetup&iso=20120216T18&p1=25&ah=1) ] 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 (link provided above), 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.)
