I'm a little late in posting this, but I had figured I should at least mention
that I am speaking at WebDU
this year again.
For those who haven't been before, WebDU
is a fantastic Adobe/Web technology focused conference that has been
happened in Sydney for quite a while now. This year I'm particularly
excited by a lot of the Flex/RIA content that is being presented.
I'll be there this year talking about a Conduit
, the ColdFusion adapter for Blaze DS,
which allows you to all sorts of weird and wacky things with data
transfer to and from Flex and ColdFusion. I'll be showing off some
cute and clever data transformations and interesting techniques for
data exposure using Conduit, so it should be a interesting presentation
for anyone doing ColdFusion and Flex development.
Look forward to seeing you all at WebDU!
Okay, this is seriously cool.
The WebDU team have come up with a Trading card game for the conference to help encourage conference attendees to talk to each other.
Each card has its own unique rules, and I'm willing to guess there are some pretty rare cards amongst the set.
At the end of the conference, you hand in the cards that you have managed to collect, steal, beg, borrow, buy, haggle, receive, or negotiate for, they add up all the points on your cards. If you have a high score, you win a prize.
Honestly, this is one of the most innovative things I've seen a web conference do, to promote interaction between its attendees.
My only concern is, after the conference, what if I want to keep all my cards? It becomes a toss up between cards, and prizes.... oooh.. tough call.
Although I may be willing to trade Transfer
stickers for WebDU cards :oD Anyone wanna trade?
There have been several bug fixes and performance and memory usage
improvements since the initial Release Candidate, so here I present to
you Release Candidate 2!
Transfer 1.0 Final is slated for the 8th of June, just a few days before webDU is going to start!
In case people haven't realised yet, but there will be a full day's training for Transfer at webDU
, in which we're going to do a lot of hands on coding, so you can get a really good understanding of the Transfer framework.
The Transfer support contracts I blogged previously
should be ready this week, we're just finalising some final details, so please contact me
, if you have any interest in this area.
Also, just a quick reminder that Transfer based consulting services are also available right now, so feel free to contact me
if you have any needs.
The Transfer 1.0 Release Candidate 2 can be download from here
Release notes can be found here .
I have to say, I'm very excited about this years webDU,
the speakers looks fantastic, and the topics seem to be really great as
well! I'm particularly excited by the fact that two of the ColdFusion engineers will be there, and presenting!
On the Transfer side of things, I will be providing a full day workshop on Day 0 of webDU,
so for those of you who are keen to gets started with Transfer, but
haven't before had the chance, or are simply looking to brush up on
your Transfer skills, now is the perfect chance.
Otherwise, I will also be presenting Database Queries the Easy Way using Transfer Query Language where I will cover the hows and why of TQL, and some of the ways it can help you write even less SQL.
