Group Organizer
Jamestown, KY
Announcing a new Meetup for The Online ColdFusion Meetup!

What: "Know your tools: Productivity Tips/Tricks for CFEclipse/CFBuilder", Marc Esher

When: Thursday, April 8, 2010 6:00 PM

Our 6pm (US ET) talk on Thursday Apr 8 will be a "Know your tools: Productivity Tips-n-Tricks for CFEclipse and ColdFusion Builder", with Marc Esher.

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

A craftsman knows his tools intimately. As software developers, we spend hours a day in our primary authoring tool -- our IDE. Saving time and being more productive doesn't just mean learning the code-generating wizards; it means mastering some of the lowest-level concepts of the tool itself. In this presentation, I'll demonstrate how to begin mastering your IDE.

During the demonstration, I'll cover:

  • Help
  • Mylyn (Task-Focused Development)
  • Workbench Navigation
  • Keyboard Shortcuts

The goal of this presentation is to show you ways to become more productive with Eclipse-based IDEs such as CFEclipse and ColdFusion Builder

DURATION: Approx. 1 hour
Meeting will be recorded. URL will be posted after meeting at­
