CF Summit 2020 Conference

But it turns out there’s a slight change of plans…
Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2020 goes online
Adobe ColdFusion Summit 2020 is going online!
Covid19 has already turned our lives upside down, and there’s no reason to lose more precious time and knowledge that you would get at the conference. Judging by how Into The Box 2020 went in May, we can expect a lot from CF Summit.

We also had a little fun! I ran a little competition for the best CF joke. Mark had the most success and he won a T-shirt as a prize.
Thank you, Michaela Light and Tera Tech for this super fun t-shirt! I won this in a “Funny CF Custom Tag” contest that Michaela sponsored last year. ❤️👩🏻💻#coldfusion #programmer #developer #code #girlswhocode #womenwhocode https://t.co/zhluNfbKmz pic.twitter.com/r9Uq4eeZEJ
