The final results for the 2019 State of the CF Union survey are out. Thanks to all the CFers who filled it out this year. Discover what most developers use for tools, languages, database and development methods.

Before we begin with the results, we’d like to thank everyone who participated and responded to this year’s survey. And a special thanks to Brad Wood who helped me edit the survey questions and reviewed the results with me.

 

If by any chance you are new to ColdFusion, it is a development platform for creating modern web applications on the JVM. The CFML language has tags that resemble HTML syntax for templating HTML and script that resembles JavaScript syntax for writing business logic. It is designed to be powerful, expressive and easy to get started coding in. Many features are built into ColdFusion that require add ons for other languages.

Related: Why ColdFusion is still alive

A lot of people are still on ColdFusion 11. This means that still so many people need to get out of the legacy hell. Upgrading people! That's what makes a programming language alive!

Interview transcript

Michaela Light:                  00:00:00               Welcome back to the show today. We're here with Brad wood from Ortus Solutions and we're going to be looking in detail at the results from the state of the ColdFusion Union survey 2019. So welcome Brad.

Brad Wood:                        00:00:34               Hello. Thank you. Good to be here.

Michaela Light:                  00:00:35               And Yeah, good to have you here again. And for those of you don't know, Brad is like the chief, uh, intelligent, a ColdFusion cold, CommandBox and other…

Brad Wood:                        00:00:47               I thought you were gonna say chief monkey there for a second.

Michaela Light:                  00:00:51               Well maybe you do a bit of a chief monkey on occasion. He gave an amazing number of talks into the box. He gave so many talks. I think he had to be split into parallel versions to be able to give the same talk, same time in different rooms, firms almost.

Michaela Light:                  00:01:05               Um, so anyway, good guy to check out. And his a blog is a coders revolution, if I remember right.

Brad Wood:                        00:01:15               That's my personal blog codersrevolution.com I typically blog stuff on the ortussolutions.com blog as well if it's box related, so.

Michaela Light:                  00:01:24               and occasionally he's seen on the a CF slack channel as well. Occasionally like every five minutes.

Brad Wood:                        00:01:31               You know, I actually, I just hit my 7000th message in the general channel just a few minutes ago. There's a little optic, there's a little Bot that keeps track of how much you talk and if you, if you blabber too much, they'll pop up and give you a little kind of anniversary notices like, Hey, you're 10000th the message, you know?

Michaela Light:                  00:01:50               Wow. Well, I think everyone listening appreciate all the support you give in the CF slack channel and all over the interwebs, so I appreciate you doing that.

Michaela Light:                  00:02:01               Anyway, today we're going to look at the results of the ColdFusion union survey. This is an annual survey that TeraTech runs for the ColdFusion community and it's a about 46 questions in it about all different aspects of ColdFusion tools. People use frameworks, uh, you know, what people think about ColdFusion and where it's going.

Brad Wood:                        00:02:20               So the survey orders order gives us a good kind of barometer of where the community is at. Um, you know, a lot of our open source libraries like ColdBox and ContentBox, you know, we're at, we're asking ourselves questions like, you know, what versions of ColdFusion do we need to be supporting? What versions of ColdFusion do we need to be supporting, what data bases are the most popular? So the state of the CF Union survey gives us a good kind of the, uh, know indicator where people are at, what they're interested in and, uh, and we kind of know what to focus on. So I always look forward to a survey every year.

ColdFusion Future

  • PM → VM → Cloud → Containers → Serverless

What will make CF take off more

  • CF 2020 Vision – To be the modernized platform of choice for building cloud-native microservice applications with an absolute focus on ease of use without getting locked to a particular cloud vendor (multi-cloud).
    • Multi-cloud
    • Micro-services container deploy

CF 2020 Roadmap – modernized ColdFusion for the next decade

  • Compare to the move from CF5 to CFMX J2EE
    • That enabled Enterprise java development using CF
  • Now cloud
  • Cloud

    • Most enterprises are moving to the cloud
    • Why is cloud so important to enterprises and CIOs?
      • Less upfront cost
        • CapEx vs OpEx
          • Pay monthly vs up front.
          • Computing as a utility vs investment in build and maintaining, specialization of server building and maintenance (including security patching, upgrades), better redundancy
        • And more flexibility for having to know how many servers you need up front – or change the number of servers day to day, minute to minute. 
        • Better for the budget – more predictable 
      • Faster time to market, less work on maintaining servers. Easier to manage
      • Managed services – including software
        • Many extra services available via the cloud
        • Eg database as a service
        • Sizing, no downtime or maintenance
        • No need for DBA (apart from database design)
        • 40+ AWS services
        • Backup is taken care of for you
        • CF will provide easy access to key cloud services – See Services section below
      • The old distributed vs centralized debate
      • Easier to scale
      • Reliability 
        • Better but now centralized so when it does go down it affects everything
        • AWS went down
        • Multi-cloud, multi-region deployment
        • Multi-cloud – better features or implementation on certain cloud providers
          • Eg HIPPA compliance easier on Azure
        • Better regional availability, government restrictions on US and EU govt sites
      • Can start small for development then easily scale (both in how beefy the machine is and number of machines in the cluster)
  • CF makes multi-cloud easy

    • AWS
    • Azure
    • Combined AWS and Azure make up ⅔ of the cloud market for CFers currently
    • Other cloud vendors coming in future
    • Cloud platform-agnostic – portability
      • Portability layer so CFers can write this for new cloud providers   as DO
      • How fast can it move to a new cloud
      • Depends on how the app is written. Containers make this easier. Full-blown cloud app needs abstraction layer. Database provisioning may take time.
      • AWS cloud formation template to make a new one
  • CF cloud licensing 

    • Moving to cloud licensing (granularly pay per hour/minute)
    • Rakshith working on this
    • Technical issues are easier to solve
    • Free Intro pricing for developers compare to AWS – Freemium marketing – low barrier to entry
    • CF AWS already has hourly pricing – AMI
  • Monitoring

    • Monitoring, security and scaling built-in
    • Performance Monitoring Toolset (PMT) will be transformed to be cloud/container ready – Monitoring of cloud services
    • Messaging and alerts of performance issues
    • AWS cloud watch integration
    • Centralized performance monitoring of cluster (Virtual Private Cloud = VPC)
    • Auto-scaling? Kubanetics or ECS orchestration of containers
      • Move to serverless
    • Calls going out, coming back, performance metrics of cloud services
  • Logging

    • All logging to be sent to a centralized repo across all the nodes. The idea is to make log inspection for debugging across your nodes and microservices super simple.
    • Possible new dedicated logging service and integration with existing logging services such as Splunk
    • API Manager logging, control and monitoring of API use will move into cloud too
  • Container support

    • Why – move from monolith apps to REST-based API microservice apps and granular runtime modules
    • Lean and small code, more efficient use of computing resources
    • Fast loading
    • Granular roll back to an earlier version of service API
    • Better QA because can test each microservice separately
    • More agile, safe to take more risks
    • CI/CD pipeline
    • Fast deployment
    • API manager and microservices
      • a hidden CF advantage
      • Some future improvements to API manager have been made
      • For cloud compatible
      • Run on the cloud with common Redis caching in your VPC
  • Installation

    • Nimble runtimes
    • Download a tiny zip containing a core base and a package manager – instead of the present 1 GB installer. From 1 GB to less than 50 MB.
      • May not have an installer GUI
      • Easier container creation for average developers
      • Speed of loading/startup time 5 seconds or less
      • Similar to NPM = Node Package Manager 
      • Auto-scaling of code to see what tags are used
      • Great for microservice code that 
      • Could it auto pull in any extra code at runtime?
      • DevOps – Tool to scan ColdFusion app and infer CF modules that are required
      • App + dependencies to build/create CF Runtime and Docker image
      • Integrate with CI/CD tools such as Jenkins to host the build/Docker image and host it on the cloud
      • Container – Fully scriptable Docker container to programmatically configure all the settings needed
      • Full modularity to create a micro container including just the modules that the microservice/application needs
  • Language

    • “CFScript 2.0”
    • We will have an ECMA Script compliant CFScript version that fully resolves the script syntax issues that we saw previously.
    • Availability of developers – easier to hire programmers who understand JavaScript
    • Polyglot programming – creating apps in multiple languages
    • Frontend in Angular, React or Vue with backend in CF – similar language
      • Why React and Node became popular because language is similar
    • Backward compatibility with prior CFScript version 
  • Cloud Skills 

    • 94% of IT managers find hiring clouds skills very hard
    • There is a huge upside for you ColdFusion developers out there too. According to the OpsRamp cloud skill survey, 94% of the IT decision-makers find it difficult to hire cloud-native and multi-cloud operators. So we are not just talking about a cloud skill gap, it is a cloud skill crisis. With the future version of ColdFusion, all you ColdFusion developers will be upskilled to become competent cloud-native and multi-cloud developers with the ease of use that ColdFusion has to offer – with this CF developers will be amidst the cloud technology that has a huge skill gap. You can call yourselves cloud-native and multi-cloud developers with the vision that we have set of ourselves.
    • Compare to move to Java with CF 6 – making Enterprise developer
  • Services

    • On AWS and Azure, you will be able to use a common API interface across clouds to access
    • Storage eg S3
    • Database RDS, Azure SQL
    • NoSQL
    • Caching Eslatic Cache, Redis?
    • Messages/notifications SQS, push notifications
    • All this in less than 1/4th the code needed, say in Java using the Java SDK.
    • EC2, ECS
    • Serverless support?
    • Why: ease of coding, Multicloud
    • Can use Extra services – use in a cloud-aware way – but lack of portability – via REST so easy to call from CF. Expose Java SDK?
  • Configuration

    • The idea is to ease the configuration of servers or containers and applications in one centralized server. You no longer have to deal with CAR or migrate settings from one server to another through a manual copy of files. Everything will be taken care of by this centralized configuration using which you can push changes to all or some of your servers/containers/applications.
    • DevOps easier – scriptable deployment
  • Serverless

    • Tool to build CF runtime to deploy your serverless code on Amazon Lamda or Azure function.
    • All this happens across AWS and Azure to begin with. We will be a true multi-cloud solution.
    • Key is a small runtime and fast startup of CF
    • Ideally needs CF licensing on a per-second basis
  • Conclusion

  • We are supercharged with this vision. And we really hope you are as charged as we are as we ColdFusion to a whole new level in the coming versions.
  • 70% of Fortune 500 using CF for app dev
  • New customers coming to CF
  • Why are you proud to use CF?
  • WWIT to make CF more alive this year?
  • What are you looking forward to at CF Summit?

Michaela Light:                  00:00:01               Welcome back to the show. I'm here with Ashish Garg, he's the VP of, uh, one of the director of engineering. Sorry, gave you a promotion then accidentally. Um, and when we talk, yeah, you're welcome. And you will to this podcast because we're on this, it's an exclusive look at ColdFusion 2020 roadmap and we're going to be looking at all the exciting features that are coming up in, uh, 2020 first time that you're going to hear about this. We'll look at some of the cool multi-cloud stuff, microservices, major improvements in deployment and containerization, uh, monitoring, logging, all kinds of cool things. So welcome Ashish. Ashish Garg:                       00:00:44               Thank you so much. Michella like to be here. Michaela Light:                  00:00:48               You're welcome. And if you haven't heard of him, he's actually been with Adobe for 15 years. Beavering away writing, you know, in charge of teams for several successful products there. And now he's with a cold fusion and I think he did a lot of Jay run in the past too, didn't you when you won that product. Ashish Garg:                       00:01:06               So yeah, that's, that's true. So j run is still one of my favorite products I ever worked on in my career. So I worked on Dayton for four years and I'm proud to say that I still remember the code. I, I can still look at the code and debug it. So it was like clearly the best time of my technical career. Like when I was coding, when I was doing the coding day in night out type of stuff. Michaela Light:                  00:01:31               Oh yeah. You're not allowed to code anymore. Ashish Garg:                       00:01:34               I wish I am. Yeah, you can say that. I'm not allowed to code anymore, but I wish I could call it more. It's not so much and yeah, the developers don't want me to code because obviously the same day then they have to wait on me and lets us, they use talk there on the, on the coding. Michaela Light:                  00:01:55               So you're in charge of the whole ColdFusion engineering team?

Interview transcript

Michaela Light:                  00:00                     Okay. Welcome back to the show. I'm here with Nolan Hook from the south of Shasta and we're going to be talking about ColdFusion command box versus no js and all the cool development things you can do with each. And we're doing a developer feature shootout today to see which one is the better one to use field development process. So if you have not met Nolan a, he has been developing software for more than 20 years and he started off from the video game industry but quickly came into web development and he now runs the sat interactive user group in Sacramento and he teaches classes on all kinds of software development. Cool stuff. And he is a prolific presenter. I lost [inaudible] into the box in Texas, but I think you're going to a CF Summit in Las Vegas on you as well now. Nolan Erck:                         00:51                     Yes, I am. Michaela Light:                  00:52                     Excellente. Well welcome back to the show. So, um, maybe we should just, uh, start off with the breaking some myths because uh, we want people to be crying at home cause they miss the broken. Um, no, you don't have to cry, but we didn't want to dispel a few myths. So I think one of the myths out there is that JavaScript has all cool tools like no js, uh, and the ColdFusion is dying and has no tools and is naked in the wilderness.

And to continue learning how to make your ColdFusion apps more modern and alive, I encourage you to download our free ColdFusion Alive Best Practices Checklist.

Because… perhaps you are responsible for a mission-critical or revenue-generating CF application that you don’t trust 100%, where implementing new features is a painful ad-hoc process with slow turnaround even for simple requests.

What if you have no contingency plan for a sudden developer departure or a server outage? Perhaps every time a new freelancer works on your site, something breaks. Or your application availability, security, and reliability are poor.

And if you are depending on ColdFusion for your job, then you can’t afford to let your CF development methods die on the vine.

You’re making a high-stakes bet that everything is going to be OK using the same old app creation ways in that one language — forever.

All it would take is for your fellow CF developer to quit or for your CIO to decide to leave the (falsely) perceived sinking ship of CFML and you could lose everything—your project, your hard-won CF skills, and possibly even your job.

Luckily, there are a number of simple, logical steps you can take now to protect yourself from these obvious risks.

Interview transcript

Michaela Light 0:02 Welcome back to the show. I'm here with Alicia the divorce. God, am I saying your name wrong? That sounds like you're in the that grade that crazy keyboard that people use. But I know that's not you could have been though. Elishia Dworak 0:16 No, but it's the same name. And actually, it's pronounced Dworzhack. But I don't do that because I'm from California, we make up our own names for everything. Michaela Light 0:25 Oh, how do you pronounce it? Okay, same name different pronunciation. And if you don't know us, she is the Adobe e Technical Marketing Manager and knows all kinds of details about ColdFusion, and E learning products that come out of Adobe. And she actually started as a ColdFusion developer many years ago. So you may have seen her at CF summit on stage talking about the API manager or the the performance tuning monitor that just came out in ColdFusion 2018. So very famous person well in the ColdFusion world. But today, we're going to be talking about something new, which is the ColdFusion Specialist certification that is releasing at CF summit in October this year in Las Vegas. So maybe we better start off by asking what exactly is this certification? Elishia Dworak 1:23 Thank you for asking. So the specialist certificate, it's a certificate program that will hopefully be the first of more to come. But this will be basically combined training with about I would say somewhere around 22 to 25 hours of video content, training you on the basics of ColdFusion development practices. So we'll follow best practices will ensure that we're giving you security hints and tips along the way. But you the courses actually designed for you to consume the video content ahead of time. And then come on site with us for a whole day of review and questions and answers and additional training on site. And the instructor will go over all of these different concepts and ensure that you have thorough knowledge of all of them. Before you take about I would say a quiz that's at the end, I would say it would be about an like 45 minute quiz at the end to get your certificate. And that will be a certificate of completion from Adobe, which will have badges associated with it that you can put on linked in for job searching and things like that. And of course, will print up a certificate for you as well. So it's really exciting, because it's the first of its kind actually.

Interview transcript

Michaela Light 0:01 Welcome back to the show today we've got an exciting episode about learn CF in a week, which is an amazing website, free training. Oops, I let the cat out of the bag there on the how it's priced. And I've actually got three experts who helped put together local fusion in a week we've got Dan frederick's of the North Virginia CPG. We've got Dave Bergson, who's joining us from sunny California, and Carl von Stephen. And I'm forgetting where in the country you are call California as well. Another sunny California is on the other end at the other end of California, the Republic of Northern California. So I'm cool. Well, glad you all could join us here and I think we should start off because not everyone knows what this thing is learn CF in a week. What exactly is it? Daniel Fredericks 0:52 I'm gonna let Dave mentioned this because Dave is one of the originals. Just a quick history that did was part of this originally when they put it together five, six years ago. That's been a while. And then he realized that we that it needed to be upgraded. So he conned or asked both Carl and myself to join in. And we've been sort of helping administer putting the new thing together. So Dave can probably give you a better sense of where learns the up for week came from DEF CON with cookies is probably a good, good thing, but I still haven't given you the cookies. So. Dave Ferguson 1:29 So, backstory like Dan said learn CF in a week was started a long time ago to try and bridge the gap between somebody wanting to learn the language and just reading help documentation. We can go online and go to CF docs and wherever else you want you to figure out how to write certain tags and so on and so forth. But there was nothing to really say if you're new to the language. Here's how you would start here's how you would finish and kind of just help you along the way versus just hunting and packing up.

Interview transcript

Michaela Light 0:01 Hey, welcome back to the show here we have a special episode. And it's a panel of cold fusion user group experts. We've got Leon, Nolan and Daniel. So and we might have drew as well joining us, he isn't here yet. But if you pop in the middle, I'll introduce him there. And my name is Michaela light. This is the CF alive podcast. And today we're going to be looking about running or starting a cold fusion user group. So welcome, everyone. And if you don't know, our guests here, Leon runs the Seattle cold fusion user group. And Nolan runs a user group down in Mount Shasta area in California. Sacramento, I'm sorry, Nolan Erck 0:48 no worries, just it's just, Michaela Light 0:49 it's just your company name has Shasta, and it gets me confused. Nolan Erck 0:53 I had that happen before. Michaela Light 0:55 Yeah. And then Daniel runs the circuit, Chicago ColdFusion user group. So we nearly got all the time zones covered in the United States. And if anyone listening, if you run a youth group, please let us know in the comments about it, we'd love to hear what you're doing. And if you're interested in starting youth group, let us know that in the comments. And if you just wish you could attend to us, or you can tell us that too. So I think we should start off by just explaining what is a ColdFusion user group or the acronym CPG that sometimes gets bandied around. Leon O'Daniel 1:32 So you know, for, for my opinion, a confusion user group is a community of people that all have a common interest in cold fusion, and are interested in sharing their knowledge about cold fusion and about learning about opportunities and additional information in that area. also supporting technologies for cold fusion.

So I think we should start off by just explaining what is a ColdFusion user group or the acronym CPG that sometimes gets bandied around. Leon O'Daniel 1:32 So you know, for, for my opinion, a confusion user group is a community of people that all have a common interest in cold fusion, and are interested in sharing their knowledge about cold fusion and about learning about opportunities and additional information in that area. also supporting technologies for cold fusion. Nolan Erck 1:54 What he said, Daniel Garcia 1:56 it's also a way for people just to get together network a little bit and see who's out there and learn about other cool new things. Maybe not just cold fusion, but anything in the in the web world. Leon O'Daniel 2:06 Exactly. Michaela Light 2:08 So it might might also be about database or CSS or other things that cold fusion developers are into. Daniel Garcia 2:15 Yep, JavaScript. Front is a little bit. Leon O'Daniel 2:19 Yeah, anything that you can sort of integrate with cold fusion? We recently did a presentation on integrating Twilio to do, you know, to build a conversion tracking application for marketing efforts. So yeah, pretty much anything that you know, would kind of fit into, you know, cold fusion we tried covering in our user group. Michaela Light 2:39 Yeah. Go ahead, Daniel. Sorry. So Daniel Garcia 2:42 we've actually had some non computer developers attend some of our user group meetings, if it was a topic that wanted to hear about, like we did an ionic presentation. A while back, or even Camden came, as we had some people show up nothing to do with confusion, but like the topic and wanted to come out, and let's see what that was all about. Michaela Light 2:58 Yeah, bit of cross cross promotion never does any harm, you never know, you might actually convert some of those people, or at least they'll know what cold fusion is when they leave. Leon O'Daniel 3:07 Exactly. Michaela Light 3:08 I think the other hidden thing about it is, you know, sometimes developers work on their own, they work home remote, or they're working in a company where they're the only cold fusion developer, it's a chance to get together with other folks who understand what the heck is you do? So I think that leads into a related question, why is a CPG important in 2019? Unknown Speaker 3:35 user groups, tremendously important a sorry about that. Because it helps, the first thing is it helps to show that this technology is still relevant. In 2019. It helps to provide a sense of community that other developers, it's also a great forum to learn other tips and techniques. And we found that it's also really good to show out there to perspective from companies that might be trying to make a decision, you know, do we keep cold fusion in half, you know, as part of our technology stack, or bring it in that? Wow, there's actually, you know, user groups out there that are promoting this technology and discussing the technology. Michaela Light 4:18 Yeah, I think that's true, there was a post that someone made recently, I'm spacing out on the guy's name, I think it was Mike Nolan, or someone like that. I'll look up the name later and put it in the show notes. But he asked his popularity and important measure for programming language. And I think user groups help show the, you know, cold fusion still has people enthusiastic about it out there. Oh, yeah. Daniel Garcia 4:47 And kind of reiterate one of the points that were made, um, really the the monetization, of how to do things, the modern way, we have a lot of developers over the years, they've been doing coefficient long time, but they don't necessarily know the new ways of doing things, Rob toys are still on older versions, cold fusion. So one thing we try and do is, in fact, we just had Nolan, last month came in and presented on some more modern techniques, and really trying to keep the the developer cool current on how we should be doing things. Nolan Erck 5:17 And the user group sessions can be a good way to do what Daniel just mentioned, especially for folks that for whatever reason, cannot get to the conferences, that happened a couple of times a year into the box, or cold fusion summit, or CF camp is too far away, or too expensive, or the dates don't work or whatever. Granted, you don't get 20 or 30 sessions in one day at your user group, but hits its one evening a month, if you can, you know, get there after work, you can also catch a lot of the same content or very similar content, like Daniel mentioned, I spoke remotely for his group and gave an identical talk there that I gave for at the end of the box crowd a few weeks earlier. So you can get a lot of the overlapping conference sessions that way to for people to can't make it out to those events. Michaela Light 6:03 That's a great point. And that's also useful for speakers, if anyone who was a speaker at conferences, is listening to this, if you want to practice your tool conceit, you know, get some feedback on it. And giving it a user group before you give it at the conference is a great way to improve that how the tool goes. Absolutely. Daniel Garcia 6:21 So we definitely welcome that. No. So Unknown Speaker 6:26 that is one of the nice benefits of being in the position I'm in where I speak at a lot of the cold fusion conferences each year, and I also run a user group is I can sort of pencil myself in on the calendar when when I'm able to test drive my, my conference event or my conference talks, before I actually give them at CF summit or into the box, whatever. And, Michaela Light 6:46 and often it's possible to give that talk remotely. So if you're not in Chicago, or Sacramento, or Seattle, or wherever else, the user groups that you related to, you know, you can do it remotely. So that that's not the way it works. If you're going if you're visiting that particular town where user group is that's an opportunity to, to both do some business or pleasure and do a user group meeting. In fact, I would say if you own a business, and you go give a user group talk, you just made that trip a tax write off. So you know. So user groups are really important if someone's listening is thinking of starting a user group. Let's talk a bit about that. Because we had some interest in the CFO live in a circle group from several people who wanted to start one but weren't quite sure how to go about it. So we've got seasoned experts here. They've had their user group for, I think, at least 10 years, in some cases, many years anyway. So what do you do if you want to start a user group? Unknown Speaker 7:50 For me, the biggest challenge was finding a usable venue, me but we had, we've had to move when my group was the cohesion Music Group, we had to move between three or four different locations. And then since then it's morphed into the general web group sec interactive, the same requirements are there either way, you've got to have a room that ideally is free, or super cheap to rent every month, because you don't want to shell out hundreds of dollars for an hour and a half session, it's got to be a place that you can bring food in and out of probably have some sort of Avi projection system, so at least already there or you've got some other means available that you can bring one in and it's got a room setup actually use that. And the venue actually has to be in a part of town that the developers will actually come to, for free after hours on their own time, we had issues where certain parts of town seemed like they would be just fine. They were off of a freeway in a venue in a room that had an AVI projector and everything was fine. But because of the side of town it was on. And in relation to how traffic flows at the end of the day, people just were not interested in coming there. So we've we have physically move the meeting 1015 minutes in a different direction sometimes to accommodate that sort of thing. And that that's been a big factor for us, like the right venue in the right part of town have been the big things that I need to, but I think everyone should sort out before can be too far down the path. I don't know what else. What else do you guys think? Unknown Speaker 9:14 Well, we have the same sort of problem with this yellow cold fusion user group where we were originally meeting downtown Seattle. And for those of you that have ever driven around downtown Seattle, that can be a challenge, and especially around rush hour, and we would you know, run about a ceiling of gosh, you know, 10 or so people that would come to a meeting. And it just we weren't able to bump that up, we did something similar to what Norman was talking about where we moved all of our meetings over to the Seattle Eastside in Bellevue. And if you're a meetup pro member, and you have we work locations, it's a co working space that they have throughout the country, I think, perhaps worldwide, but you can have get free conference rooms have to have your cold fusion user group meetings, and it's worked out pretty well for us. So I didn't get Unknown Speaker 10:10 that. But Michaela Light 10:11 I went to a small event at a we work it was in Mexico City but sure is the same, you know, they do have projectors and space. The only downside is you have people who regularly go to work, they're kind of hovering around which you can either look at as a bonus, because they're going to pick up on the, whatever the topic is, or it can be a bit of an interruption. Unknown Speaker 10:30 And they actually did have space for us. In the Bellevue, we work where it is kind of tucked away, and people aren't bombarding you. We typically hold our meetings at around six o'clock at night, though. So we have less people going into their co working spaces. Unknown Speaker 10:45 We did the same thing. We're meeting in a venue called hacker lab, which is not we work properly. But it's a similar sort of venue. And so they have the AV production system setup for us there in central downtown Sacramento, which makes the traffic flow easy for most everyone. And the other nice thing about that is they also host a variety of other after hours classes and workshops, not just our meetup, but there's actually a hacker lab calendar, and they put our meetups on that calendar too. And we have had a few people come to our events because they saw not my promo, but they saw the hacker lab promo, and were interested in what we're talking about. So that helps to Daniel Garcia 11:19 another place you want to start as well. I've been extremely fortunate with a sea fog, where the companies I've worked at had been more than happy to sponsor us. This is the second company I've been since I started it. And the company provides a meeting location or conference room, even sponsored the food. So definitely check with your current employer and see, Hey, is this something that you would like to sponsor, if you've got some confusion developers in your company, that's just a great way to get them to come out and try and work on their craft and learn more and do things like that. So it's definitely a win win. Michaela Light 11:54 That's a great suggestion. I know when I ran the Maryland cold fusion us, we used to do that. I don't know several other user groups to do that. The other thing I'd say, you know, if you're thinking of starting a user group, the important thing is to get started, don't feel you have to have the perfect location, you can always move it later if you need to. One point I had the user group meeting a local bar that didn't have a lot of traffic on Tuesday nights, and they were happy to exchange free space, and AV equipment in return for people understanding they need to buy some food and drinks. location. So a restaurant bar or cafe might work for that, if it's not busy at that time of day. Unknown Speaker 12:39 Also have private rooms that can rent out for birthday parties and such. And I've seen a few user groups do that before it's too they'll have meetings out kind of like a bar or like a Panera Bread or a pizza joint of some sort. It's not a birthday party, but it's you know, 10 people in the room buying a pizza and the venue doesn't care. It's also, Michaela Light 12:56 particularly if you pick a time of day when they're not busy anyway, and choose the night at 6pm. Bars generally a pretty empty all restaurants depends on the restaurant of cool, some restaurants are busy and evening. So Unknown Speaker 13:08 I have a question for Leon and Daniel related to Daniel, what you just said a minute ago about the places you've worked at had, you've had good luck with them helping to host the meetings. How do I phrase this and not make it sound like I'm trying to antagonize things, I'd be curious to know how many roughly how many cold fusion employees work in both of your buildings. And what percentage of those employees actually show up to the meetings, the reason I asked that is we used to run the cold fusion User Group here in town, in a building in Sacramento that employed about 25 cold fusion developers, literally in the same room where they worked every day. And we'd have one guy show up from that group, to our meetings every month, he was our sponsor that stayed and you know, open the door and turn the lights on for us. But we could not get anyone else that you've been, it was literally walk 10 feet to the side and sit down and there's your meeting, and we couldn't get them to stay. And I'm curious, you run into similar situations and how you maybe solve that problem. Daniel Garcia 14:04 We do run into that the first company, there's only a couple of us. So we both were there. So that wasn't as big a deal. My current company, we've got about 1516 computer developers, and we've got maybe a third to half the common any given given night, just depending on the topic, depending who's available, the weather, things like that. So you're going to get the people that generally want to learn more generally want to do more. And you know, but also some people have families and they don't want to take the time. And it is tough. But we've been very fortunate, we've had enough people from the company that kind of mix up the core of the group, and we pull in others as well. But um, all I can do is keep encouraging them have topics they're interested in. And hopefully they will want to show up. Unknown Speaker 14:46 You said you mentioned you have like a third to a half, is it usually the same third to half that shows up? Or is it does it vary still, even among them? Daniel Garcia 14:53 Over the years, it changes early on, some people that showed up early on don't show up as much anymore. So as we are new developers, new developers may be a little more excited and enthused about things. And it also depends on older developers, younger developers, they got families lives outside of work, things like that. Unknown Speaker 15:11 Okay, thank you. Unknown Speaker 15:13 Now, so in my case, it depends on whether we're talking about, you know, my theatrical use and user group or my going cold fusion community of practice. So we typically hold our phone cold fusion community practices around 11 o'clock Pacific. And we currently have about 260 members of which we get only 35 at any given time, come and join. But we kind of have a captive audience with people at work that it's like, work or an hour long session on cold fusion. And so that works pretty good. Now with the Seattle cold fusion user group, we typically run into getting the same people attending each time I'll tell you what gave us a big bump was when Alicia and Kishore came up and did the Adobe cold fusion breakfast a couple months ago, we ended up getting a whole bunch of new people attending our meetings for the very first time, because they were introduced to our user group at that breakfast, and it was a big help. But yeah, we run into similar challenges as you were talking about Nolan, where you know it the we get lulz, and it ends up being just the same people and and then you have other challenges, which I think we've talked about a little later with speakers and things like that. Unknown Speaker 16:31 Thank you. Michaela Light 16:33 I mean, we'll talk more about promotion later on. I think one thing that might help is just engaging the people and for start asking, Well, what, what topics Would you be interested in and giving them a little poll? You know, and when people will feel engaged and part of the group they're more likely to attend. The other thing is just if there are employees in your company, just ask them, Hey, what would it take for you to walk to attend this? And you might find out something you can change? Maybe you can't, you know, Daniel Garcia 17:05 what one thing we try and do is fill least once a year, can I go to the group and say what would you like to learn about them based on some of that will reach out to different presenters. One other thing we do and every one of our meetings, is have a time towards the end, where it's an open forum, open q&a, hey, you've got a problem you're working on, you want somebody here that can help you just ask. And so even though they might come for the presentation, because the maybe them still, maybe they're not, but they're also there for the networking, and, hey, I need help. You're here in person, tell me what I can do. And we've done that several times with people. Unknown Speaker 17:40 Yeah, we do the same thing, where at the end of each of our meetings, we'll go and we'll say, Do you need help with something that you're working on? And we'll have them pull up on screen where they might be stuck? And we'll try to get them through that right at the meeting. And we found that that's a pretty popular portion of each one of these, because it gives them actual, real, real reason to show up, like, Hey, I can get this problem solved, too. That's Michaela Light 18:04 great. Thanks. Yeah. Did do I'm interested when when I had a user group I, I'd give out little paper sticker name badges that people would hand write their name on? Do any of you do that, or I just found a lot of developers are kind of shy. And just having seeing what someone else's name is seems to help them interact. Unknown Speaker 18:27 I think that's something that we need to do more of in my user group. Now one thing we do is we do in around the room at each of our user group meetings, and we do introductions, and you know, your name we company. You How long have you been using cold fusion? And what are you hoping to get out of the user group? But I think that that's a great point, you know, to do name tag, so that after the introductions are done, and you're 30 minutes in, it's like, what was this new person's name? So right? Daniel Garcia 19:01 Yeah, we didn't name badges early on. And then we kind of got away from that over time, just same people showing up. But we do anytime somebody new comes, we do go around the room, introduce yourself. Who do you know, how long have you skill fusion? And we also asked, What's a favorite feature of confusion? Fact? I'm still waiting for Nolan's reply from last month on that, but I'm just trying to get them feeling part of the group that, hey, we're all developers runs together. Leon O'Daniel 19:26 Cool. So Michaela Light 19:29 also, when you start a user group, what are your thoughts on, you know, how often to meet or what day of the week or what time of day, we kind of talked a bit about that Leon earlier, you have one that meets at 11am in work as one that meets after hours. Unknown Speaker 19:46 Curious work Wednesday, middle of the week, Wednesdays, it's far enough away from you know, you know, Monday, Monday is not forget Monday, or Friday, you know, because you have people either coming off the weekend or going to the weekend, we get a lot of folks that have things going on Thursdays. But yeah, Wednesday seems to be kind of a sweet spot on that. And we typically hold our meetings, it's they start, we start at six. But that first half hour is for networking. And we provide pizza and refreshments. So people that are just coming in from work, they're you know, they're hungry. And it's like, they don't have to make a decision well, but I'm not going to get to eat if I come to the user group meeting. And so we start that at six o'clock, go for a half hour, and then we jump into the regular meeting where at that point, we start broadcasting on zoom for other attendees. That seems to work pretty good for us. Daniel Garcia 20:42 Yep, we started on Wednesdays for a lot of years. And then just with the group kind of voted to switch to Thursdays, we do 630 to eight. And then again, we provide food as well. So you can kind of come in sign up, grab some pizza, or whatever, and then be there for the presentation. We were doing every month, and then that got to be a little difficult people are busy presenters. So we just recently switched every other month to try and space out a little bit more. And that was partly from feedback from the group, often they wanted to meet. Unknown Speaker 21:12 We do a third Wednesdays of the month. And I try to be consistent and do it every month, except for December, because it's too close to the holidays. And occasionally the Thanksgiving date lines up. And that's too close as well. So we we always take December off, we sometimes take November off, but I try to be consistent and have a meeting third Wednesday of the month, every month. Just to be consistent and get people out. I found that moving the day around sometimes Tuesday, sometimes Wednesday, and so on, or switching the week from second Wednesday to third Wednesday. Those kind of things affected attendance. To be fair, leaving it on the same day also affects attendance. There are some people that just always have a standard obligation. Wednesday nights or third Wednesday of the month. They're always at some other event that it just happened to be at night. And so we did a similar thing to people at some point and said what nights work for you which nights do not. And then I think myself and the then co managers have just picked what seemed like a reasonable option among the feedback we had. And we stuck with it since done. Daniel Garcia 22:12 Yeah, consistency is definitely key having the same time every month, we do the same thing second Thursday of the month. Unknown Speaker 22:19 Yeah, I agree with that, you know, making sure that you have it at the same, you know, same date, you know, time each month. And then also along that line is to make sure that you have a backup presentation ready in case your main presenter fails. That never happens. You know, and, you know, because you don't want to go into that the light last moment say, you know, well, you know, our meetings cancel. And it's like, well, geez, you know, I scheduled this time to show up, and now they're not gonna have the meeting. So consistency is really important. Unknown Speaker 22:48 Yeah, I find that that's kind of, yeah, I find that just one of the responsibilities of being the group manager is the manager needs to have some sort of can have a couple of cans slide decks at the ready in case you have to do something like that. And worst case, what we've also done in that position, or also, if we just don't have a speaker lined up, for some reason, once every about once a year or so we'll do like what we call a developer show and tell where there's not a main presenter for an hour. It's just the promo that goes out says, Hey, if you got something cool, you want to talk about for five or 10 minutes, bring it into that neat database query you wrote that you're proud of cool is that a JavaScript library you found last week that's doing some amazing animation thing you'd like in your app, great, bring that to you want to come show us show off an app you've been working on that finally went gold this week, you know, anything like that. And then that's a good way to get people that don't feel confident doing a one hour presentation to contribute something. And then you get a nice feel for Oh, there are five people in the group that all use this particular technology. Maybe I can hit one of them up later on to do a little bit more of an in depth look at whatever they did the five minute teaser version of tonight. And those things worked pretty well for us when we are stuck to and like the presenter bales or we can't find one up for some reason. Daniel Garcia 23:58 That's a great idea we talked about try and do something like that as well. Another thing we do, or we're going to do is a workshop. So our next Seaford meeting, we're gonna do a command box workshop. Some of the newer members don't know what command box is how great it is, we're just going to bring the laptops in. So I'll do it together, kind of walk them through the basics together. So instead of a presentation, more of a hands on interactive workshop, Michaela Light 24:23 that's a great thing to do helps people get their skills up. It's free training for them. It benefits the software you're showing off, whether it's the latest version of cold fusion, some cool features in their tool, tool like command box. So I know when I had these group I used to do the second Tuesday. And the reason was to avoid Thanksgiving and Christmas clashes. I deliberately picked up a number near the front of the month. But doing the first Tuesday didn't work because people forget that when that is they sort of need to get into a month before they start realize oh, yeah, it's user group time. So we talked a bit about speakers. I know that's a challenge sometimes people have, how do you get speakers? So let's talk about that. Because a lot of your tips were what do you do if the speaker doesn't show up? Or you weren't able to get a speaker? And your basic as was the show must go on? Unknown Speaker 25:21 Right? Right? Yeah. Unknown Speaker 25:24 Well with for us, we use one, actually, if we adopt one of Nolan's techniques, which is to have smaller presentations built into our, into our meeting, so that if we have somebody build, typically the longest we'll have for a topic will be about a half an hour. So you know, we're able to kind of fill in around that if we have a problem, we do try to encourage show and tells a lot. So that can help. And then other just smaller topics of interest that have some relevance to cultivation, or just something else that's interesting that they might seem technology wise, or whatever else, or even Seattle wise for that matter, in our area. Daniel Garcia 26:12 And one thing we haven't done we've talked about doing is just finding a presentation out there that's already recorded, and just watch it as a group. And that's something we want to talk about what are the explain different areas of it. Um, I certainly prefer a presenter that's more interactive. But um, but that's another thing, just watch someone else's presentation or a slide deck or whichever and talk through it. Unknown Speaker 26:33 We haven't done that before my group. I think I'm not sure if Unknown Speaker 26:39 of the other groups, but I'm in the spot where we have a co manager and his skill set and mine overlap some, but he deals with a lot of technology, very in depth that I don't deal with very in depth and vice versa. So between the two of us usually will trade a couple of messages out and say, any ideas for a speaker next month. And if we have people that can come and present with them up as much as possible, because that's just a win win all the way around. But we are a couple of times a year in the spot where we don't have a speaker that can do the June meeting or July meeting. And he and I will just sort of Rock Paper, Scissors it out and say okay, you Why don't you speak in June, and I'll speak in July. And we'll go from there. And during the show if we can find something. Michaela Light 27:22 Another thing is to ask speakers from various cold fusion conferences, often if you email or message them on Twitter, they'll be happy to talk to you as a group, they may not be realized it was an option. So just messaged a bunch. Let me show to get some of them will say yes. Unknown Speaker 27:40 Yeah, that's worked out pretty well for us were William Frank Hauser. He's our co organizer for the Seattle cold fusion user group. And he just reached out to Charlie or hard to see if he would provide a presentation on fusion reactor. And he was more than happy to oblige, and did a great job presenting to us last month. Just ask. Unknown Speaker 28:00 Yeah, the worst they're going to say is no. And I've, I've never been in a spot where a presenter has flat out said no, without a legitimate reason. Like I just cannot do that particular date. That's usually the problems. I can't be in Sacramento that day. Unknown Speaker 28:15 And then you ask somebody else, and then Unknown Speaker 28:17 I'll just keep asking you Daniel Garcia 28:19 what to go along with that. Don't limit yourself just to the confusion conferences. Again, we try to make our user groups a little more inclusive. Maybe there's a database topic, go check out a database conference and find a speaker from there and have them present. You don't have to limit yourself to just confusion. Michaela Light 28:36 Yeah, I had good luck getting the Microsoft evangelist to talk about sequel servers latest version. A lot of companies will pay their you know, evangelist or speakers to come present a user group and even sponsor pizza or whatever. So also, the third party vendors for cold fusion, like integral and artists and Unknown Speaker 28:59 found Dr. Michaela Light 29:00 They usually pretty keen to get the word out about their products. And as long as it's informational and not turns into a sales pitch that, you know, can work good. Unknown Speaker 29:11 We're fortunate in that Blue River. The folks that make me a CMS are here in Sacramento as well. They're literally right down the street from me. And they've come and given a demo of the latest version of mirror a couple of times for my group in the past too. And that works really well it's they don't have to drive very far or fly in from somewhere, it's really easy to coordinate. So if you happen to have a found do or fusion reactor tech company nearby that can give a demo of their product. That's a real easy way to fill a session. Another thing we've had very really good luck with is the local tech recruiters, often the tech recruiters will like to come and give an in depth talk about what the job market is like in your town. And I'll tell you here's what we're looking for in resumes right now. Here's what's companies local to you are hiring, here's which ones to avoid things of that nature. And the other nice thing about the tech recruiters is they often I want to sponsor the meetings and provide pizza and drinks and things of that nature because it gives them more opportunities to pass out business cards and do more, you know, networking with people. So we talked to a couple of the tech recruiting outfits here in Sacramento. And that's usually a good meeting for like, right after the holidays, January. nobody really wants to put together a presentation, there's still a little bit fried from the holidays, the tech recruiter guys, though, are raring to go and get their, you know, 2019 or 2020 plan going and they'll come and happily speak. And it's not a technical talk, but it's we actually have a really good turnout for those a pretty decent sized crowd will come figure out what the job trends are like right now. Daniel Garcia 30:39 That's a nice idea. I know I've shied away from that, myself is always having a company sponsor us feels like letting a fox in the henhouse kind of thing. So I don't want to overly encourage a recruiter to come in and try and but if you don't have that kind of situation, that's a great idea. Also, I'm mentioning reach out to others, I attend my DPA and the company speak about sequel, you know, people, you know, other tech people does have to be cold fusion, have them come in and do a presentation. If they'd like. Unknown Speaker 31:11 I love rate presentations, I think that's a great idea to know. Michaela Light 31:15 Yeah, and they might be people in your company, or they might be just people you know, on Facebook or LinkedIn or someone you see, it makes a really good comments in a in a group or whatever. You know, again, you if you don't ask you, you can't hear Yes. And if you hear No, that's okay. Maybe they'll come back later, and be okay doing it. And generally speaking, when I've asked people are usually flattered that they're being asked, so sometimes, I have found with new speakers, they need some encouragement or help to want to do it. So that's part of the process of, you know, getting new people to speak at the user group. One of the other things I did it, you know, I had to come my own company was sponsoring this group, I wouldn't courage, you know, Caucasian developers who worked at the company to, you know, give a talk or give a short talk to help improve their presentation skills. So that's another thought. It's usually pretty terrifying. First time someone gives a talk. So making it easy for them. And low risk Unknown Speaker 32:20 is one thing we do that tries to help encourage, sorry, miquela, I think I talked over them, go ahead and get your sentence there. One thing we do sometimes to try to help with that is, so our group is sponsored by Adobe, twice a year, they'll give us a Creative Cloud subscription that we can raffle off as a prize, or I think they don't quote me on this part, but they sometimes have given out like a coefficient license as well. And what we'll do, one of the things that used to bother me about running the group is we'd have attendance that was at a an average level of, let's say, five attendees each month, and on the month that we were doing the Free Software giveaway, a whole bunch of people that I had not seen all year long, would show up and try to win that prize. I felt like that's not fair to the people that are here all year long learning and contributing, and they've maybe spoken to the group a couple of times. So one thing we've done, both to minimize that effect, and also encourage people to speak more and contribute more to the group is when we do the raffles, they're weighted, if you show up to a one session per year, you get one ticket in the raffle, you show up to five sessions that you know, in that year, you get five tickets in, if you present at one of our talks, you get, you know, seven or eight tickets in the raffle. So the more you do, to get out of your comfort zone, the more you do to contribute to the community, the more you're rewarded with opportunities to try and win the prizes. And people seem to feel that's fair, and they seem to enjoy doing it when we when we've gone down that path. Daniel Garcia 33:41 That's great idea. Unknown Speaker 33:43 It is every day. Yeah. Another thing that we do is that, you know, for people that attend is if you are an active member in we define that as attending at least a user group meeting in the past three months, then we'll go and we'll promote you on the Seattle cold fusion user group website without headshot and bio and links to your resume, Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, so that if there's a company or recruiter that might be looking for some talent, there's like, Whoa, you know, and searching cold fusion will come up first, Seattle's cold fusion, and it seemed to work pretty well. And you know, it's just one of the things that we're trying. I do like your idea, Nolan about the giveaways from Adobe. That's a good way to do that with the more attendance more tickets. Michaela Light 34:32 You can also get giveaways from if you have a vendor or you know, spot sponsoring, they'll often get you know, with Microsoft comes off and they'll give away a sequel server license or enter or giveaway a fusion reactor license. So you can often get giveaways. Or if you can't get your ways leasing, get t shirts. Unknown Speaker 34:54 I've had good luck on the training outfits like Linda calm and places like that women give you a subscription for you know, two months free three months free. And you can give those away as well. And that's of interest to more than just cold fusion people. But you can use that Linda subscription for whatever training you want. And again, the worst are going to say is no, and then you're no worse off than you were before sending that email. Michaela Light 35:20 Cool. So I think we've kind of moved into from how you promote the user group, which is the next thing I want to talk about what other things do you do to promote apart from, you know, giveaways, and you know, how to get people to attend Daniel Garcia 35:37 meetup, creating a meetup, having it out there that kind of helps promote itself for you. People do searches. I've had people find us not knowing who we were, but came up on their meetup. And so they came. So reaching out to do a LinkedIn search on hope Asian developers in the general area, reaching out to them letting them know, Hey, we have this crew love to see you there. Those kinds of things. You know, Unknown Speaker 36:05 we try as many different, you know, social, you know, platforms as we can. We use Eventbrite, we use meetup, we use Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and we try to send out multiple notices about upcoming meetings, you know, not just an individual one, but one a couple weeks out, then what about a week out and three days out and day before and they have to try to encourage falls? Another thing that we were thinking about, and I want your guys thoughts on this, is we're thinking about, you know, trying in July doing a Facebook Live of one of our user group meetings, as they can, you know, that might be a good way to get in front of some people that wouldn't normally, you know, be you know, the people that might you know, that would attend your meeting, but would get additional exposure. What do you guys think about something like that? Daniel Garcia 36:55 That's a great idea. would you would you have a in person presenter for that versus remote? Unknown Speaker 37:00 Yeah, well, we what we typically have is we have both at our meetings will have some folks like, we have one gentleman who's in our user group from Portland, and he will, he'll present sometimes, and then we'll have folks that are in the room that are presenting. So it's a combination of both. Daniel Garcia 37:17 Jack's I know a lot of ours, we do a lot of remote presenters. If we can have somebody local, then there, it's much more of an event feel if they're all there together and the excitement there, right. It's great idea. Try it and see. Yeah, worst case, you don't do it again. Michaela Light 37:33 And the other benefit is you end up with a recording on your Facebook page that you can share out to people and encourage them see what they're missing. Daniel Garcia 37:43 How many members typically show up on any given month, Unknown Speaker 37:48 to our user group meetings around 10. Unknown Speaker 37:52 user group that following ones are bigger, but Daniel Garcia 37:55 you have six to 10, depending on the weather, the topic and things like that. And Unknown Speaker 38:01 we're in the same boat around. Yeah, 1010 is probably a good average. The topic will greatly affect how many people show up? Leon O'Daniel 38:10 Yeah, right. Michaela Light 38:12 I mean, if you mentioned early the Adobe breakfast, if there's any tech events where you can get the user group name out and you know, make an announcement sort of be a quote, sponsor of the event, you're not paying anything. I know when we you know, Adobe or Macromedia did a big event in Washington, DC, they had 900 people attending, I got three minutes on the stage to talk about the user group. And that got a big bump in membership for us. Daniel Garcia 38:41 We did something similar a few years back with one of the breakfast road shows in Chicago, and we worked with them and showed up and they let us kind of give a quick spiel on us. And it was nice, we got more people showing up to the event for them, we help promote it for them. So it's kind of a helping each other out. Michaela Light 38:59 Also, you actually if you go to CF summit, or into the box or any other conference, you know, see if anyone else attending is from your city. or wear a T shirt that says you know Chicago user group or whichever your user appears. And you know, you'll get some back you'll pick up extra people just from that visibility. Daniel Garcia 39:21 One thing I used to do when some of the conference's I'm excited me to cut you off. But I make postcards Elliot among some of the vendor tables saying hey, we're going to see fog. And if you're in the area come join or if you want to present, reach out. Some simple you could just leave behind and people can pick up. Unknown Speaker 39:39 And that's the same thing that William Frank Houser did at the Seattle cold fusion breakfast, is he made up a bunch of Postcards just like you were talking about Daniel, and it really worked out well. Michaela Light 39:50 It's easy to do with VISTA print or Kinko's. Get it? You know, it can be pretty simple. We didn't mention website, do you all have websites I feel user group was that important? Do you think or does not really matter. Daniel Garcia 40:05 For us, it's undergoing a redesign for it's been undergoing redesign for a while, and kind of embarrassed by that. But it's important, we try to record as many of these presentations as we can. And then we list them up there as an archive. So people can come in and see the past recordings. And so for that part, it's pretty important plus general information about where you are and things like that. You also talked about the giveaways sometimes when you go to some of these conferences, where grabs extra swag, or whatever swag that will give some of that away at the sea bugs. So if somebody can't go to the conference, here's a cool, integral, squishy ball on fusion reactors, things like that. Unknown Speaker 40:43 We have a website as well. RSS also grossly behind on getting the redesign finished, much like Daniels group's website, the relevant content for the current month's meeting is always updated. But the rest of it is not where I want it to be in a number of ways. That's one of the plans that my co manager and I have for later this year, hopefully. So as long as it's got the, whatever the current month's info is on it, I find that it does help. The couple of times that I have slacked on getting that updated. I have had a couple of attendees send me email saying what's the June meeting going to be the info isn't up there yet. And so I know people are checking it, at least periodically. We don't record meetings right now, that has been a thing we've talked about before, I've had about 5050 luck with the presenters being okay, with being recorded, some of them just don't want to be for different reasons. I know I've told Daniel before, when I spoken at his group to I don't want to be recorded for this one for you know, different logistical reasons or what have you. And that's fine. So we don't have an archive of the meetings in the past. Over the last two years or so our group has organically become more of a local community event. And so we've just started encouraging people show up in person, instead of looking for a link later and show up and meet fellow develop and asked questions in among the group, everyone here is nice and come check out hacker lab and see what kind of other classes they have. And so we've just kind of going in that direction a little bit more recently, and I haven't really talked to the manager about recording the sessions in quite some time, maybe I'll shoot him an email about that later just to see if he has any updated thoughts on it. Daniel Garcia 42:20 And we only record the presentation portion. We don't record everything in the in the meeting. Unknown Speaker 42:27 Right we find our website, pretty useful. users come out, and they will check out when's our next meeting how to get there, there is a bit of a protocol for attending a meeting at we work and we have that on there. We also post demos of some of the present the different things that we've done, you know, with the with code with tutorials, you know, and then, you know, step by steps, that's found that's been pretty useful. Then I mentioned this earlier, we have bios of our members that are active attendees that want to be on the website, not everybody wants to be on the website. You know, Unknown Speaker 43:06 I think that the website is is very helpful. Unknown Speaker 43:11 That's a great idea. But having regular Unknown Speaker 43:15 group members have BIOS and things on the website, we have not done anything of the sort so far, and I'm going to absolutely suggest that to my co managers and Michaela Light 43:23 particularly as a reward like someone was saying, for people who attend you know, or active, yeah, or who or have, you know, given us a talk members who gave but I also used to put, I used to take photos of the event and post those on the website. Or I see someone here has uses Instagram to promote stuff, I don't promote photos from the event. But I find that helps people imagine what it would be like to go if they've never been before. And people generally love seeing photos of themselves. So it's great way to get things shared. One of the other promotion things we didn't talk about is you know, Adobe has a forum, anyone can create an account and post on it, just put the announcement of the event there. And if you have a recording or photos, share them afterwards. You know, you might get people in your town who you know, you They didn't even know you existed. And you know, I think the same with the Lucy website, they have a blog, they if they have something relevant to them. I'm sure they'd be happy to put a blog post up or what about social media? Does anyone do any social media stuff? You have a Facebook page? or? Unknown Speaker 44:40 Yeah, we have a Facebook page, a Twitter page. Between William and I, we try to get posts out there rather frequently about upcoming events or, like we had one of our members today just go through his 30 years 30 he retired after 30 years from the tech world fire departments, suburb, Seattle, you know, so little, little things about members or of interest to the group. But yeah, we're posting out on both of those quite heavily. We're starting to use Instagram to promote events, you know, and then just different will use that with it. We use Adobe Spark, when we repost to Instagram to do that kind of stuff. Unknown Speaker 45:20 Pretty cool technology. Have you seen any noticeable? Like, what are your thoughts on doing Instagram? Have you had any? Unknown Speaker 45:27 I just are. So So we've used that for my company, oh, Daniel designs, and it's worked great for that. We're just starting to use that for the user group. So I don't really have any good metrics on that at the moment. We're looking at just different ways to try to get in front of different audiences who might not have been exposed to our user group or cold fusion to get some interest like, Oh, well, I might be interested in this. So check it out. Daniel Garcia 45:54 Yep. Um, one of the things that I struggle with, I've been doing this for eight years now seven, I get kind of burned out from time to time. And then these are all great ideas, but it's like, well, I gotta do it again. So I find that my level of go get as go getter ism, whatever, ebbs and flows sometimes. And so yeah, we do we have Facebook, we have Twitter. Yeah. So that is a challenge when Unknown Speaker 46:19 you Daniel Garcia 46:21 when you run one of these and having a strong co-manager, Unknown Speaker 46:25 how you have to have that. Daniel Garcia 46:27 Yeah, between that right now. And so it's all kind of me doing a lot of it. And but I'm Unknown Speaker 46:32 something Yeah, I think I think Michaela Light 46:34 co-manager awesome people in your company who can give their time to assist with, you know, posting photos, or videos, or whatever. So all you have to do is show up at the group. That's how I used to do my group. But I know everyone, not everyone can do that. But if you don't have a co manager, what can happen if someone gets sick or goes on vacation, the group kind of dies. And I've seen that happen a number of times in the past with us groups that was successful, and then the person got burnt out or whatever. So having one or more CO managers is a great thing to do, but not required to get the group started. A lot of these things we're talking about here are more advanced techniques. So they're good to do. So let's talk about the vision and member guidelines. I don't know if you have any of you have a group vision, or you have any guidelines for how members are supposed to behave, or you've ever had to get members out for being disruptive, or Daniel Garcia 47:29 we've been pretty fortunate that we've never had to kick anyone out. Everyone's pretty professional. Nobody's never had a problem. person. So that's great. And we're pretty open anyone that's a local web professional enthusiasts, we just want them to come out and, and learn and interact. Unknown Speaker 47:48 Yeah, we've been really fortunate as well as well. We haven't had people come in and, you know, be obnoxious or disrespectful or combative. We've had some times when conversations have gone on off the rails, and we'd have to kind of get people back focused in what the the on the topic is. But you know, and there's there's ways you can handle that. But yeah, we haven't really had the issue with people being combative, per se. Unknown Speaker 48:16 We've had really good luck to no no problems in our, in our particular group knock on wood. I know there was one other c fuck that I spoke at a few times that used to have a problem attendee this was a number of years ago. And I don't remember what the proverbial last straw was. But yeah, they they just had told him like, you're not welcome back here anymore. But I've only heard of literally one person in the 10 or 11 years, I've been running user groups, and I've been speaking at different groups for about as long. So Unknown Speaker 48:47 what would that person do? Say, good. What would that person do at these meetings? Unknown Speaker 48:51 I'd rather not say on the recording, it was it was justified. And Tony's about able to come back though. Yeah, so it was bad enough, I fully support their decision. Michaela Light 49:01 Alright, I haven't seen problems in person. But I did see problems when we had an email list that sometimes people would spam it or just, you know, turn into a flame war. So that's where our guidelines got started. But I think it's good to have things written down and have a short vision, what's the group for even if it's only a sentence or two, and maybe have some guidelines, there are some in my book, you're welcome to steal and edit, you know, the CFO life book that has a set of community guidelines. Daniel Garcia 49:35 To go along with it. With that, though, you should be prepared if the situation comes up, to have to address that. And one thing I would recommend is, don't be unilateral with decisions, try and get in consensus building from some of the other members. So that would just look like one person is dictating anything. It's really a community group. Like you're asking. Right? Exactly, yeah. Michaela Light 50:00 Well, they say that the best leader leads from behind Brian, what songs do or someone said that you kind of gently encourage people in the right direction? So as we wrapping up here, you know, perhaps you can share why you're proud to use cold fusion? Unknown Speaker 50:23 Daniel, is this where I finally have to tell you my favorite feature of the language? Daniel Garcia 50:25 Yes, please. Unknown Speaker 50:29 I'm Tyler. So I run a consulting business. We are a devout selfish. So we are a developer consultancy. Often clients will come to me and say, here's an app we'd like built, how do you think we should go about building it, and I try to be as objective as I can about what the problem is we need to solve and what is the most realistic technology stack for solving that problem. and nine times out of 10, I go with cold fusion, I just get things done more quickly, per line of code out of the box with CFL. I do most of the technology stacks. So it gets me productive quickly. And in the directions that I need to be productive. It covers all the different bases that I need, and it's good. And so to that extent, I liked it. It's Oh, driven, I think in object oriented terms, because of my background in video games and c++. So Daniel, I think my favorite feature is probably the CF component tech. Daniel Garcia 51:26 Great, a lot of tech on a lot of what Nolan just said, I'm able to be very productive able to make, you know, create some complicated solutions and a non complicated way. Now granted, you know, 20 years ago, when I started doing some of this stuff, it wasn't the case, you just kind of learn as you went, but really with the level of modern changes. There's no reason why you can't build most anything in confusion. Very proud of a lot of things I built over the years and real applications making real money for the companies I work for. So it's very happy, I'm very passionate about cold fusion. Unknown Speaker 52:03 I'm happy to use cold fusion I've been now this is year number 22 that I've been using cold fusion. And I like cold fusion, you know, and I use that as the my go to solution for most of my applications. Because it's integrated, tested, and it just works. My customers can come to me with, you know, some, you know, vision of what they want to get done. And I say, Yep, I can do that. Whether it be things like providing an interactive search for documentation, and we had a use case at Boeing, where we had disparate documentation, all different types of writing types want to be able to search it, cold fusion can do that, you know, we can just use CF index and CF search and see a selection and we're good, we need to build a dashboard, we have charting integrated, it's just right there, and it's available for you. And with other technologies, you're pulling in, you know, you know, components from my new get an artifact tree and all these others and trying to make them work. Cold Fusion just has it. It's all in one place. Integrated, tested and works. And that's why I love it. Michaela Light 53:09 Yeah, I deco those things. I mean, it's very quick to code and, you know, much faster than coding in Java or adult net in my experience, or even PHP. Bible. You know, it's it's pretty thoroughly tested, I was talking to someone at Adobe said they had 40,000 test cases in their test suite to make sure cold fusion works good, which kind of blew me away. And, you know, runs fast, secure. And if you have to train someone up on it's very quick to learn it. So that was even a site called learn CF in a week, not Moran, which I think is fairly true. So great thing. So So I wrote a book about making cold fusion more alive. And I'm curious what you guys think what would make cold fusion more live this year. Daniel Garcia 54:03 For me, it'd be more evangelism, I think you're doing a great job Michaela, and really trying to fire up the community. And I think a lot of us need to just keep going with you and keep posting out there and, and do some of these things, go to conferences, help user groups, post on Facebook just Unknown Speaker 54:21 more. Unknown Speaker 54:25 One of the things that I think would help to make CF more live this year, it would be something that it just not for this year, but ongoing is to see cold fusion curriculum, get put more into the middle schools and high schools and get people excited about what cold fusion can do, how they can go and build really cool stuff, and how easy it is to actually use it. You know, if you're able to go and get that in place, then you start building a talent pool to where larger companies are thinking, Okay, well, cold fusion isn't dead. And it is a technology that we should go and, you know, bring in or enhance within our company, which then that would feed excitement with the colleges to want to go and offer more curriculum, because they're going to want to provide people that are capable of filling jobs and companies that are offering cold cold fusion. So that's one of the things I wanted to see for a long time is more focus of getting people interested early on with this technology. Michaela Light 55:35 You are muted, Nolan. Unknown Speaker 55:37 Sorry. I agree with that. I'd also like to echo what Daniel said, and just get more of like what folks like yourself miquela are doing and promoted it more in general. I like that the we have fewer cold fusion conferences happening in 2019, then we did say two years ago, but the ones that are happening have had pretty noticeable change. I'm in attendance, which is good. So at the conference level, I think people are doing a lot of good work. I like that Adobe is working on rebuilding the cold fusion certification training, I think that will help show that it's, it is something that Adobe is investing in. And they are looking at getting people trained properly on modern versions of CFL and how to use it in 2019. Not just in 1998 style of coding. Just more of what things are doing, I always encourage people to go out to their local user groups. Even if you just sit in the back and watch and listen, if you're not big on asking questions, or you're not interested in giving a presentation of your own. Just being part of the people in the room and hearing the different things people are experiencing their day jobs and learning about new technologies like that can help. I like that, you know, the few people we have that are active on Twitter and LinkedIn posting about it, I think just more of the same. Well, we'll help. Unknown Speaker 57:00 Yeah, I mean, Michaela Light 57:02 I think the thing is that we shouldn't expect cold fusion to be made live by Adobe or Lucy or someone else from on high doing it. Each of the people in the cold fusion community needs to take some small action. And that small thing might just be tweeting about some cool feature used or sharing some snippet of code. Or maybe it's telling another developer Hey, this is a cool thing I did it doesn't have to be mega big. But if hundreds of thousands of CF has all did that, it would definitely shift things a lot. Just Daniel Garcia 57:36 one other quick comment to if you want to make CF alive for yourself. Go check out artists and what they're doing with cold box and command box now the box stuff and there. It's very exciting. Some of the really cool things are doing if you want to see awesome cold fusion cone applications. Go check those guys out. Michaela Light 57:53 Yeah, they had an amazing conference. I know no long you were there, into the box in Houston, Texas last month. And it was just chock full of it wasn't just box stuff, you know, box stuff is there open source or commercial products, but they had, you know, a lot of presentations, Bronco, cold fusion things. And they're really big about modernizing your cold fusion code. And that's something else, I think it's important that fusion can get a bad name is if if you're working on code or writing code that's, you know, 20 years old. There's a modern way to write cold fusion, so and modern tools to use that. Take it ahead of all the other languages out there, in my opinion, at this point. Unknown Speaker 58:37 You've touched on an excellent point there. And Michaela another thing everyone can do to make quarters more alive is just attend one of the conferences, if you're on the fence, because you think it's expensive, or you don't want to take a couple of days of vacation time or whatever. Yes, it is a check, you sometimes have to cut out of your checking account. And that can be an irritant. I have a attended a bunch of conferences over the years, as part of my consulting business, I have never once come home from a cold fusion conference. And felt like that was a big waste of my time and money. Every conference I've gone to, I feel like I've gotten my money's worth I go, I learned a bunch of things, I meet people that are hitting the same pain points I'm hitting. I do a lot of great networking and get excited about what I'm doing for a living. I've always learned a few new things that I'm excited about taking back to my clients and back to my bosses and so on my teammates, and telling them check out what we can do. Now I didn't know about this feature. Did you see this new product that came out? Yeah, I always encourage people go to a conference. And I know sometimes they're the same. If they're hard to do that they're not all that hard to do. There are weekend events. fairly often there are conferences that are only on Fridays and Saturdays, you can get to them by taking a half day off work and just fly over and do it. I my hope is that the NC DEF CON conference will come back soon. That's a great conference. It's a Saturday and Sunday. You can fly out from the west coast. Ready, they're red eye flight back Miss no work at all. It's like a $200 ticket. There's all kinds of events in the area that are worth checking out. Even conferences that by name don't sound like they might match what you do for a living. Look at the session list and see if it's worth your time. There is a word camp conference here in Sacramento later this summer. by the name you would think oh, it's all WordPress stuff. I went last year it was 30 bucks, three zero for two days worth of sessions. And I learned so much about search engine optimization about code linking about new static site generator tools and things like Gatsby js, it was well worth the time and money. I think I've sat in maybe two WordPress sessions in the whole today. So find a conference somewhere that fits your time in your budget and check it out. It's a big way to make CF for live and to make your own career more alive to Daniel Garcia 1:00:47 you and go along with that too. I know Adobe has done developer weeks, an artist has also done developer weeks where they're really little mini and online conferences. We can go into tons of sessions and interact with us speakers, and definitely encourage you to participate in those things as well. Michaela Light 1:01:05 So my talking about conferences, what are you looking forward to the next conference, you're going to whether that CF summit or some other one. Unknown Speaker 1:01:17 So I'm looking forward to going to CF summit this fall. didn't attend last year, we had things going on. But a couple things that I look forward to when I attend CF summit is catching up with with folks that I've met, I started going to CF summit back in 2014. What I particularly liked in the 2017. One was the sessions that were on supporting technologies for cold fusion. So I'm really looking forward to some of those. Daniel Garcia 1:01:53 I'm not going to be able to make summit this year I have gone before and some CF objectives and things like that. And same thing you get some of that working, but also you get access to Adobe people were Hey, I'm having this problem. And I'm not finding the answer online. And can I ask you about it. And hey, we actually had calls with Adobe engineers after the fact that to talk us through some things and even gotten hot fixes out of it. So there's a huge benefit interacting with them there. Unknown Speaker 1:02:21 I love going to summit I'm I'm I'm looking forward to the plans Adobe has this year, especially around redoing the whole piece and certification. Full disclaimer, I'm actually working with Adobe on some of that, I'm looking forward to seeing them launch these things and help people get certified in cold fusion again, I also like it at the keynote events when you look around and you can see 500 or so cold fusion developers sitting in a giant conference room in Vegas. And that is always a great photo up for me to just take a nice panoramic shot and throw it on Twitter and show people if cold fusion is dead? How did 500 of these people show up in Vegas for an event? And it does it gets me excited to see that many people that are taking time out of their their schedules and attending such a conference like that. Michaela Light 1:03:10 Yeah, I mean, these are all great reasons. I'm planning on launching a new Cold Fusion book at CF summit. It's called fusion for CIOs, why they should either buy it or continue using it or come back to it if they moved away. So I am very excited about that. And the chance to talk with people about that topic, because I think a lot of the ways to keep confusion alive is to get the top leadership in a company to be behind it. So anyway, I think it's time to wrap up, but people may want to find you online. So how can people best find you and your user group? Let's go start with Leon and then go to Nolan and Daniel. Unknown Speaker 1:03:56 So you can find the Seattle cold fusion user group online on web at Seattle see fog.org. You can also find us on Facebook at CL cold fusion user group. On Twitter, we're at CL c fog. So we're pretty easy to find. We're also out there on on meetup. Unknown Speaker 1:04:20 You can find me and my business at south of Shasta com. We're also on Twitter at South Shasta. And on Facebook. You can find my user group second or active at sec interactive com. We're also on Twitter at Sac interactive. And we're also on Facebook. Daniel Garcia 1:04:38 You can find us online cc fog.org cC fog.org. And once you're there, if you go to our contact page, we've got links to our Facebook or Google group, things like that. Also our meetup. com. So come on out, say hello. Michaela Light 1:04:54 Right. Well, thanks everyone for being part of this user group panel. Lots of great insight and ideas. If anyone listening has any comments, please put the and if you're interested in starting us group particularly interested in hearing about that. always happy to help people in that regard. So thanks, everyone for being here. Daniel Garcia 1:05:18 Thank you Michaela. Thanks for having us. Thanks. Transcribed by https://otter.ai

But then, but it also supports simple progressive enhancement…” Raymond Camden talks about “Vue.JS FusionReactor and Therapy” in this episode of the CF Alive Podcast, with host Michaela Light.

Show notes

  • Vue.JS
  • Why and what excites you about Vue
    • Simple progress web apps enhancements – easier than jQuery
      • Eg progressive search and filtering
    • Simple to get started with than Angular
    • Vue has two way binding between your DOM and JS data
      • jQuery this is manual
    • Easier with dynamic HTML with tokens that are replaced by JS data by Vue
      • Compare to Handlebars, mustache, Jade and Pug
    • Excited about its simplicity and power
    • Find other Vue logic from other similar sites
    • CodePen online code edit
  • Compare to Angular.JS
    • Angular hard to use on smaller scale use on a single page of an app – it expects to run the whole app
    • Needs more handholding, conventions
    • Major Angular update – leaders were not helpful to people upgrading
    • Even needing to explain the version numbering change
  • What Vue is especially good for
    • Apps
    • Single page enhancement
    • For micro apps (4 lines) just uses JavaScript
    • Example of Vue.JS on Plex media server
    • API Fetch – does  AJAX type calls super easy
    • Axeos library
  • Vue Challenges
    • More documentation for people new to JavaScript apps
    • What folders can you ignore when starting
  • Learning
    • Get started in an hour

Transcript

Michaela Light 0:00 Hey, welcome back to the podcast. I'm here today with Ray Camden. And we're going to be talking about Vue.JS, FusionReactor and also Therapy. So if you don't know Ray, he is sometimes known as the Jedi Jedi Master. And he was for a long time in the ColdFusion community. He kind of went off in other directions, but now he's playing around with FusionReactor and doing some other cool stuff with Vue.JS. So he works as developer experience engineer for American Express now, and he works on server lyst, JavaScript web standards, enterprise cat demos, that sounds very enterprise cat demos. Yes. And he's also the author of lots of books on web development. And he's got a very prolific Brock blog. And he's done a lot of presentations. So welcome, Ray. Raymond Camden 0:55 Thank you for having me. Thank you for inviting me. Michaela Light 0:58 Yeah. So you're welcome. A lot of it's nice to have you back on the show. I'll link in the to other episodes you had on the CF Alive podcast and the show notes on progressive web apps and using Node JS. But today, we're going to look at Vue.JS, which is a front end framework that a fair number of ColdFusion developers use, in fact, I interviewed john Farrar a couple of years ago, and he was kind of excited about it. And I'll put that episode in the show notes too. But I'm sure you have a totally different take on it from John's, even though you both do have beards. So Raymond Camden 1:32 yeah, I went to one of his presentations on view. And that was my first introduction to the topic. I don't know if I have a different take on it. But I have been using well before ups, I've been using Angular JS for a while. And I liked it. You know, I've been I'm potential I saying I liked it with a little bit of pain. Yeah, I could get things done. I liked it in comparison to everything else I looked at. But I wasn't necessarily thrilled to start a new project with it. You know, if I had some, like random, weird, stupid idea, which are even most of my ideas are like that. Just a thought of starting a new Angular project was a bit of a impediment in terms of all the stuff that you had to kind of set up and get working. And that could absolutely have been my fault. There could have been tools to make that a little bit easier to make the scaffolding quicker. It's, but like, it's, you know, it's like when I go anywhere now with my children, right? I don't like casually go anywhere, but my kids are coming. I'm bringing snacks and bringing diaper bag and all that. And I like them being with me. But it's a process. And that's kind of how I felt about Angular. You know, view, you know, view definitely has a process to it has a command line as a scaffolding tool. And you can build big applications. But then, but it also supports simple progressive enhancement. So I have one page site, that's totally fine. on that one page, I want to add a little bit of interactivity. And the past I would have use jQuery for that. And now I'll use the view because view works great at that smaller scale. And it also works great with for applications as well. And I want to apologize if I'm a bit my soapbox here now, but it seems like most people talking about JavaScript have the assumption that you're always building applications with routing and state management and all that fancy stuff, you know, enterprise JavaScript apps. Whereas like, a lot of my JS work over the years has been a much smaller scale, still important to the client, still, you know, adding good things for end users, but at a scale that I don't see talked about, and a lot of conferences and blog posts now and to me view supporting the full range of what people can bill makes it a huge win for me off the soapbox.

Interview transcript

Daniel Garcia  0:01 Okay, I like to thank everyone for coming this evening. We've got quite the treat. We've got Michaela light is going to talk to us about CF Alive. She's been doing some fantastic. evangelism, I guess is a great word for this and why ColdFusion is just awesome still, and it's always been awesome. And we're going to let her tell us why. So thank you very much. Michaela  0:23 Yeah, thanks for inviting me to the Chicago CFUG. And, yeah, I'm going to talk about CF Alive, which is the title of a book I published last fall. It was actually released at the CF Summit West in Las Vegas. And the subtitle is making ColdFusion modern, vibrant and secure and we'll talk about all those aspects of it. So fabulous. And we go so the roadmap for CF Alive is that confusion is modern and alive. And it's great for doing complex data-driven applications. And while some companies have abandoned ColdFusion as dying, you know, more visionary developers like ourselves, have embraced CF and learn how to make it more modern. So more modern, secure. And also, I think if you look at how ColdFusion is used in the most modern web development, departments and shops is the most state of the art web development ecosystem. So we'll look at why that is. So who am I? As I said, I wrote the book CF Alive. I'm also host of the CF life podcast. I just out of interest. How many people here have ever listened to any CF Live podcast episode? Maybe you can tell me how many people raise their hands if any four of us and one of our move on you with the podcast at Bertram? Oh yeah, he was a guest. Read more

      • Pete Freitag Software Engineer & Web Consultant, Foundeo Inc.
      • Large and mature ColdFusion Markup Language (CFML) code bases have unique challenges when it comes to ensuring that they are secure. This session will go over some techniques for finding vulnerabilities, and improving the security of your CFML application over time.
    •  Step Into Serverless With AWSAnd Adobe Coldfusion
      • Brian Klaas Senior Technology Officer, Johns Hopkins University
      • Adobe ColdFusion is a great tool for web applications, even if it's not the right tool for every job. For examples, it's not easy to do machine learning, video compression, and computer vision from within ColdFusion. Who wants to set up servers or Docker Clusters for those tasks when ColdFusion isn't the best fit? In this session, we will take a look at getting started in a serverless environment with Amazon Web Services' (AWS) Step Functions-a powerful, visual way to orchestrate functions and services within the AWS Cloud. Along the way, you'll learn about AWS services, such as Lambda, S3, Rekognition, Translate, and Transcribe. Join us to see how you can invoke and track serverless workflows from within your ColdFusion applications, and how to harness the vast array of AI and computational power that AWS provides with a simple “embrace and extend with ColdFusion” approach.
    • Faster Queries In Coldfusion & SQL Server
      • Eric Cobb Database Development Manager, Centauri Health Solutions, Inc
      • Adobe ColdFusion makes it easy to retrieve data from SQL Servers, however, sometimes, your queries may not be performing as well as they could be. In this session, we will take a look at ways to speed up your queries in both CFML and SQL Servers, as well as discuss things you may be doing that are slowing your queries down. With a detailed look at SELECT statements, Stored Procedures, indexes, and learning to read query execution plans, this session will have you well on your way to turbocharging your queries in CF & SQL Servers alike!
    • Refreshing Your UI: Modern Uses For Websockets
      • Giancarlo Gomez Owner of CrossTrackr, Inc. and Fuse Developments, Inc. & Senior Web Application Developer, Duty Free Americas
      • Is your application suffering from stale UIs? Is your server begging you to limit the amount of useless calls just to see if there is something new to display to your users? Do your users suffer from finger clicking pain due to refresh button abuse? Well, look no further my friend, we have the solution that is right for you- welcome to the world of WebSockets! In this presentation, attendees will learn how easy it is to implement WebSockets into your applications as of Adobe ColdFusion 10. Our speaker will review some real-world uses of this technology, and discuss some tips and tricks to help keep them up and running through several failure points. Attendees of this session should have some knowledge of JavaScript, as it is needed to work with WebSockets.
    • CF + ReactJS
      • Minh Vo Advantage Data Inc., Lead Engineer at Draft Studios, Head of Development and Security at Advantage Data
      • Today, it is still uncommon to find an Adobe ColdFusion developer with a high JavaScript skill that has had to deal with interactivity programming to a high degree. In this session, attendees will learn how to rig the following functionalities: parallax, scroll handling, simple animations, ColdFusion web sockets for real-time interactivity, fetching JSON from a ColdFusion CFC, and extreme reusability and modularity. Join us as our speaker conveys the essence of a ReactJS + CF project buildout in 45 minutes. You'll want to go straight home to build out the funky stuff we made!
    • The Many Hidden Benefits Of The Adobe API Manager To Unlock The Power Of API's
      • Brian Sappey Applications Architect at Market America and Manager of Engineering, SHOP.com
      • In this session, attendees will learn how to utilize the many hidden features of the Adobe API Manager, with a provided look and examples to get you started. Furthermore, attendees will gain a full understanding of the many benefits of using the native API's which power the API Manager. Whether you are migrating from an existing platform, automating your workflows, or integrating with third-party sites, this session will give you the ability to enhance your development experience. As an added benefit, our speaker will be providing a real-world example of a custom WordPress Plugin, which was built to integrate with our internal and external API's utilizing the Native Adobe Manager API's.
    • Revamp Your Monolith With Hierarchical MVC
      • Luis Majano President, Ortus Solutions
      • Come learn about building your applications using a hierarchical modular approach. Leave the age of monoliths behind with HMVC. In this session, we will explore the architecture behind HMVC and create a RESTFul application that is modular, versioned and scalable. We will then containerize the application and deploy it into a Docker swarm.

This hands-on course takes you through different types of security vulnerabilities and how they pertain to CFML. At the end of this course, you should be able to take away the following:
          • Specific Red Flags to look for in your code
          • How malicious invaders can exploit these vulnerabilities
          • What you can do as a CFML developer to avoid this from happening
      • Angular + CFML Workshop
        • Among Adobe ColdFusion's many great features, with several ways to easily build APIs, Angular is still one of the most popular JavaScript frameworks to date, and is a great tool for building front-end web apps that talk to server-side APIs—let’s learn about both API capabilities and combine the two!
        • In this workshop we'll go over the basics of how to start building apps with Angular. You'll learn some essential node.js commands, the MVVM design pattern, TypeScript basics, and will create several Angular applications. Attendees will also learn several ways Adobe ColdFusion can be used to create server-side APIs for a variety of codebase styles (i.e., legacy CFML, proper MVC, and something in between the two). And finally we'll connect our ColdFusion API up to an Angular front-end application.

Interview Transcript

Michaela  0:01 Welcome back to the show. I'm here with Kishore Balakrishnan, Krishna of Adobe. He's the marketing manager for ColdFusion. And we're going to be talking about Adobe ColdFusion summit, East 2019. And that's just happening in a few weeks time in Washington, DC. And we're going to tell you about all the exciting things happening there. All the speakers, we've got some news about Adobe that you may not have heard that we're going to tell you about. And also there's an incredible deal not only in the conference, which you won't believe how much the conference costs, but they also have a full day of confusion training at an amazing price as well. So that more in this episode, and if you have not met Kishore, he used to be a Java developer, and then he learned about ColdFusion and came to the light side from the dark. Now I'm just kidding. But before he went into marketing, he actually programmed in ColdFusion. And you game, a lot of conferences, you know, and roadshow events. So welcome, casual. Kishore  1:07 Thanks for your life. It's always good to be back, talking to you. Michaela  1:11 Fabulous. So I'm excited. How many years is this event being going in Washington DC, it must be like four or five years. Kishore  1:18 Yes, it's the fourth year that we are having this event. And if you remember, we started very small. The first event we had in DC we had close to 30 people who attended the event, and then it sort of grew 200. Last year, we had close to 200 people. And this year, we are aiming to have more than 250 people at the conference. Michaela  1:42 Wow. And how many people I know it's a free event, letting the cat out of the bag there as to how much it costs. Because I know people were listening in suspense, you know, so but you know how many people have registered this year, when you say you think 250 or turn up? Read more
