June already? That means I have 3 sessions at 2 conferences in 2 weeks

CFML Language, cfObjective, Conferences, Dev.Objective, IntoTheBox, Javascript, Server Admin, Unit Testing

This year is a little different, with the CFML Conference season starting in June, and not May. Dev.Objective() changed their date, and Into the Box followed suite to give us an action packed week of materials. I am excited to be presenting at both conferences again, and getting to talk with all of my old friends, and make some new ones while I am there.

Guest Post on Ortus Solutions Blog - ContentBox 3 - Extending ContentBox 3 easily with Modules

I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. ContentBox 3.0 has been a massive project, with so many changes and features, its really exciting to be a part of it. The good news, the testing is almost all done, we're going to cut a final release very soon. This means I have a lot of great things to blog about...

Building a Bigger Better CFML Community

CFML Language, CFML Server, cfObjective, Conferences, Dev.Objective, Lucee

I have been thinking about submitting a session or two for dev.Objective(), especially fueled by yesterday’s CFML Panel at CF Summit. I decided we need to be more vocal, so I wanted to write an outline for a session to submit to dev.Objective(). The more I thought about it, and discussed with people in the hallways, I came to the conclusion to make it more than a normal track session, but maybe a keynote, or a general session… so there are no other sessions competing with it… because I think it’s something EVERYONE should think about.

Please note, I am not saying that I am the one that should be leading the charge, giving the talks, or calling the shots, but I have an idea, I have a lot of ideas, some good, most bad, but sometimes putting an idea out there, can let it snowball and evolve into something good, and that’s what I am doing here. I encourage you to speak out, respond in comments, and let’s start a conversation.

CF Summit is coming to a close - thinking ahead to dev.Objective()

CFML Language, cfObjective, Conferences, Dev.Objective

This year’s dev.objective() was again a joy to attend, and have the pleasure of speaking at. I had the pleasure of talking with old friends and new friends, and during the process, I had several conversations about what makes dev.Objective() great, what could be better, and how to reach out to new people and group.

Post Conference - Session Review - How do I Write Testable Javascript?

Conferences, Dev.Objective, Javascript, jQuery, Unit Testing

dev.Objective() has come and gone, and like my Cordova Hooks session, I wanted to write a review of the session, and provide some additional information for those who attended, or those who wanted to attend. The conference was a blast, lots of great info, lots of great people, one of my highlights of the year... so many talented people, and whether you are in the sessions, or in the hallways, there is always something to learn. I submitted this session because although there is a lot of great information on testing, sometimes the hardest steps are the first steps, and most people are live and breathe testing, forget the first few steps, and how many stumbling points they ran across from. Hopefully this session will help everyone get started with Javascript testing.

Post Conference - Session Review - Getting your hooks into Cordova- Workflows and Build Helpers

Android, cfObjective, Cordova / Phonegap, Dev.Objective, Ionic, Javascript, Mobile Development, Node.js, Unit Testing

May 15th, 2015 was the last day of dev.Objective(), and the last session of the day had some great topics, “Devops: journeyman to infrastructure mastery”, ‘Marketing for Developers’, ‘Level Up your Javascript: Understanding the confusing bits’, ‘Web sockets, yes they can do that too', and my session, ‘Getting your Hooks into Cordova - Workflows and Build Helpers'. With mobile and hybrid development really growing into a track of its own, I decided to submit this topic, as I believe Cordova Hooks are a big part of Cordova mobile develop, they save me hours every week, and they are relatively unknown if you search for blog posts about them. When the session was accepted, I took that as a challenge to up my game and really research hooks, and make my presentation a complete resource.

dev.Objective() is over, returning back to normal life.

CFML Language, cfObjective, Conferences, Dev.Objective, Javascript, Mobile Development, Unit Testing

dev.Objective() conference held last week in Bloomington MN, with IntoTheBox the day prior, was a great geek week as I like to put it. Of course a conference is most importantly there to give you information to grow and learn, but networking is a close second, and it was great to catch up with friends, and make some new ones at the same time.I was lucky enough to be picked to present not one, but two sessions this time, which adds a weight to your shoulders, but is great to give back, and be on the other side of things.
