Presentation - ColdFusion on Apache

Would you like to remove the hypodermic needle of IIS from your local development or production systems and jump over to Apache but never knew where to start? About 2 years ago I started using a laptop and needed to work on multiple websites and the whole localhost development in IIS just did not cut it.

We will be going over the following 1. How to configure Apache and ColdFusion. 2. Setup multiple websites 3. Point different Coldfusion instances to be used on different websites

Please let me know if there is anything else that you would like to cover and I will see about adding it to the presentation.

This meeting will be in person and via Breeze as I am still shoveling myself out of all this snow in Colorado.

Edit: The meeting is tonight at UAT at 6:30pm MST Adobe Connect

Ben Forta on ColdFusion + FlexBuilder 2

I'm sorry to say that Ben will not be making it down after all. Let's hope that we can get a Breeze presentation on the subject.

The March meeting is not going to be at our regularly scheduled date and location for good reason. On Monday March 20th Ben Forta will be joining us in person and presenting on ColdFusion + FlexBuilder 2. This is going to be a awesome meeting that you are not going to want to miss. We are in the process of securing another location for this meeting. I will send out updates as everything is finalized.

Nathan Strutz on Tips and Tricks with CFEclipse

For the February 22nd Meeting we have our own Nathan Strutz on tips and tricks coding with CFEclipse. About 3 months ago Nathan joined our development team at Interactive Sites and to watch him fly around the Eclipse IDE is nothing less than amazing. It seems that CFEclipse is the only IDE that I have seen that the potential of getting the HomeSite+ diehards to switch. The problem that we all seem to face is getting over that hump of learning the new IDE. In the meantime check out Nathan's site at http://www.dopefly.com/pages/cfeclipse.cfm

Mike Brundt and Patrick Quinn on SeeFusion

Mike Brundt and Patrick Quinn from Webapper will be presenting on SeeFusion.

SeeFusion is a jar file that you can add into your ColdFusion server to really take an in depth look into how your application is performing. This is such an important tool in the development of a high availability application.

We will be giving away a 2-server Enterprise copy of SeeFusion ($498 value).
