Multi CFML Engine Install - speaking at cf.Objective() today

CFML Server, cfObjective, Conferences, Server Admin

Today is the day, I do my large presentation at cf.Objective(), why do I say large? Well, I bit off a lot when I submitted this topic... so trying to fit all of it in, in 50 mins, with time for questions, is almost impossible, so I am going to release a lot of the information on my blog, and I have made a mini website tacked onto my blog, so everyone attending my session have a great reference for after the session. Installing CF 9, CF 10, CF 11, Railo, and then getting them all to work through Apache, if you have that installed, if not, installing Apache, on Mac Linux or Window, is a large chunk of information, so I'm going to try and provide as much assistance with those topics, but my session will focus on how to bring them all together, while just highlighting items to be aware of while installing.

CFML Conference - Into the Box - Keynote Goodies

CFML Language, cfObjective, ColdBox, Conferences

If you did not know, today, the day before cf.Objective(), Ortus Solutions' very own 1 day ColdFusion Conference is going on at the Homewood Suites by Hilton, across the road from the Radison Blu. The event has a large number of community sponsors, speakers from Team Coldbox, and other community members, plenty of goodies, its not hard to believe the conference sold out. I've talked about the event several times on my blog, because I'm speaking today, but also because I have been eagerly awaiting some ColdBox announcements at the keynote, and it did not disappoint.

Heartbleed - Heartbeats - and other Heart filling stories

CFML Server, cfObjective, Chit Chat, ColdBox, Conferences, OpenSSL, Server Admin

Yes, I still have a heartbeat, although my blog didn't have much of one for a while, that is true. The heart filling story, is that my mum and dad flew in the day after my last blog post, so I've been spending a lot of time with my parents, sharing experiences with their grandchildren. They live in New Zealand, so they do not visit too often, and my busy life got even busier. I have been busy, but you have to wait and see the fruit of my labor, more about that below. Of course, this week, you can't go far without talking about Heartbleed, so I have a few tips for those of you fighting Heartbleed too

Conferences - 2014 NC DevCon - Have you say and make it the best NC DevCon yet

CFML Language, Chit Chat, Conferences

Conference season is about to go into full swing, especially for the ColdFusion community. cf.Objective() and Into The Box are coming up quickly in May, get your tickets and book your flights. Scotch on the Rocks is down to 14 tickets last I saw, so if you intend to go, snatch one up quick. Next in the line of CF Conferences I believe is NC DevCon, and they have released a survey, to get the community input, to make this years NC DevCon as good as can be.

They're asking for ideas on track ideas, and more specifics on given tracks to what type of content for those categories. They also want to know if there are certain sponsors you want to see there or not, and most importantly, whats days make it more appealing.

Take your time, and fill out the survey, the more information, the more the committee can do to shape it to meet our wants and needs.Its a short survey, well worth the time, so fill it out, and spread the word.

Conferences - cf.Objective() - Early Bird Rate Extended

cfObjective, Conferences

I had planned today to write a little message saying, quick last chance for early bird rates, and then I told you to get in while you had a chance. I got busy, as you do, and by the time I got around to it, I saw a tweet stating the Early Bird rate had been extended. Why? I'll let you read the message here but the important thing is, its Valentines, do your thing, and then you have 2 weeks more to convince your manager to send you to cf.Objective().

See you there, or else!!!

Conferences - Online Learning - Angular's NG-CONF Videos All Online

Angular, Conferences, Online Interactive Learning

I have talked a lot about conferences lately, and I apologize, because most of them are very expensive, you have to travel a long way, and there are 500 awesome conferences, and if we went to them all, we'd get no work done. Today, I talk about one we all missed, well, most of us... Angulars conference, ng-conf, which was held last week... January 16th and 17th in Salt Lake City, Utah. So why am I talking about it? If you read the title you'll know why. ng-conf, being a Google backed product, put all of there awesome sessions on Youtube :) I actually caught a few on the live stream, which was cool, as you could ask questions to the team during presentations etc, but the videos are just as great, after the fact.

Here are a few questions and my answers, peek into my thought process.
