Last week I made a flippant comment regarding the noose that TeraTech have round the fusebox framework. Regarding boycotting CFUnited, this was a jokey comment and as someone who has helped run a conference it’s hard enough to run a conference without the community backlash (Which to be fair I have had my fair share, if only people really knew how much hard work and personal time and money goes into putting on a conference)
There is no way I condone the mass boycott of a conference, as this will only damage the community on a whole. 2010 will be a great year for conferences for the ColdFusion Community.
With the following events happing all over the world, the community is well catered for in respects of conferences.
- CFObjective – April 22-24
- WebDU – May 6-7
- Scotch on the Rocks (SOTR2010) – May 24-25
- CFUnited– July 28-31
- Adobe Max 2010 – October 24-2
- CFObjective(ANZ) – November
- RIA Unleashed in Boston – November
[If I have missed anyone please use my contact form and I will add to this list]
With everything that happened towards the end of last year, I haven’t applied to speak at any of these events, but if there are any slots and I get asked I’d certainly be up for speaking at them 😉 hint hint!
To this end, I’ll also mention that I won’t be helping with Scotch on the Rocks this year for the first time in 3 years, will be nice to enjoy and learn (oh and complain 😉 ) with everyone else.
