Melbourne CFUG – 15th of May


Another CFUG on the way!

(Apologies for the delay in getting this out, I was in the US!)

Location:, Level 2, 17 Raglan St, South Melbourne

15th of May, Meeting starts at 7:00, so get there before hand (doors open at 6:30).


Richard Herbert, CTO of NGA.NET, Australia's leading e-recruitment company, has been working with ColdFusion since 1997 and version 2.0. With a background in the legal and training industries Richard has developed applications for retail, point of sale, aviation, training, manufacturing, government and of course the HR industry. Also Telstra (but who hasn't?)…

Since 2000 Richard has been building NGA.NET's e-recruitment product and delivering solutions to Top 500 companies and federal government, where NGA.NET have 100% market share.  The application has gone through many evolutionary steps, with a brand new version built on mach-ii/ColdSpring/Transfer architecture in beta for 2008. NGA.NET is in the BRW Fast 100 for 2008 – a list of Australia's top 100 fastest growing companies.

And the presentation…

…will be titled 'Usability for Developers – The Ugly Truth'. I will be seeking to provide the audience with an understanding of what the field of usability covers, how to apply usability methods during the development cycle and the surprising results you can achieve.

Depending on time, Mark Mandel will also take us through some of the CF9 discussion that occurred at the cf.Objective() conference, and give us some insight into what could possibly be coming in CF9.

If you are going to attend, please RSVP to mark -dot- mandel -at- gmail -dot- com.

Only those that RSVP are eligible for the door prizes, so make sure you apply!
