ABOUT THIS SESSION:
We will have two speakers this week, at noon and a special time of 7pm EDT.
First up is S. Isaac Dealey, who will present on "DataFaucet: Do It Yourself Plumbing", an ORM tool at http://datafaucet.riaforge.org/ and http://www.datafaucet.com/ . Some may recall that he introduced the tool to us in July, in his talk "DataFaucet ORM... relax, have a drink" (http://coldfusion.meetup.com/17/calendar/8304548/). This is a follow up to that.
Hands-on demonstration of the various DataFaucet tools for common CRUD operations, building search utilities, custom queries and debugging.
Ike (S. Isaac Dealey) is the author of the onTap framework and the DataFaucet ORM. He's worked with ColdFusion since 1998 and was a member of Team Macromedia and the Adobe Community Experts (ACE) program. Ike has also spoken at many conferences and user groups, has written articles for the ColdFusion Developer's Journal, Fusion Authority and the Fusion Authority Quarterly Update. He is available for speaking engagements and pursuing Adobe instructor certification. While he has Asperger Syndrome, he refuses to let that keep him from doing what he loves, which is creating great software.
RECORDING: As always, the meeting will be recorded, and the recording URL will be posted after the meeting at http://recordings.coldfusionmeetup.com .
We will attempt to make this meeting available as a downloadable recording, which will be listed on the recordings page within a few days 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. The login screen presented there has no connection to meetup.com. And if you have a real Connect account, don't use that either. Just sign in as a guest. It's just not worthwhile try to add those who have real accounts to the participant list for each meeting. You have no fewer features as a guest as than you would if logging in with your own Connect account. Thanks.
RSVP, but only if coming: We 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 nearly 1,500 members, there's really no reason to explain your absence. :-)
FEEDBACK/MEEETING DISCUSSION: We would appreciate your sharing your feedback after the meeting (via the follow-up email sent to members, or via a link on the site). Meetup.com also now offers a meeting-specific discussion area, available on each meeting event page, in addition to the feedback feature. Please feel free to have discussions there about the meeting's topic.
ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: If you would like to easily add this event to your own personal calendar, please note that the page for the event offers a link (on the right) saying, "Add this meeting to your calendar", which offers links to get calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars.
