We'll have two speakers on Thursday, Feb 28. First up will be Marc Esher on "ANT on the Wire: Using FTP, Email, SVN, and VSS". I'll have more on the 6pm speaker later in a separate entry.

Description: (provided by the speaker)

This is a how-to session on using FTP, Email, Subversion, and VSS access in your ANT build files. It will demonstrate exactly how to configure your environment for using these tasks and will demo all of them. I'll show you where to go in the documentation to learn all about these tasks. In addition, I'll show how all of this comes together in the build we use for MXUnit. A small bonus -- using ANT for version numbering -- will sneak in there, too b/c it's so cool.


Marc is a long-time ColdFusion and Java programmer (Sun Certified), currently working in the brokerage industry. He is also a contributor to the MXUnit unit testing framework for ColdFusion. His primary professional interests are building "really big, complex systems", team-building, and process improvement. He is married, with children. His rare spare time is usually spent with scotch and a cigar.

RECORDING: Again, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted on the Meetup Message Board after the meeting, which can be reached directly via

LOGGING IN: When you login to the Connect room (the link above) to view the meeting, PLEASE LOGIN AS A GUEST. Do NOT attempt to use your username/password. The login screen presented there has no connection to And if you have a real Connect account, don't use that either. Just sign in as a guest. It's just not worth the time to try to track who RSVPs and add them manually as participants in each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as when you would login with your own account. Thanks.

RSVP: As always, 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. BTW, no need to RSVP if you can't make it nor even explain why you can't. With 1,300+ members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-) We'll also appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (also offered via a follow-up email or via a link on the site).
