Welcome back to the show. I'm here with Kishore Balakrishna from Adobe. And we're gonna be talking about ColdFusion development week 2021. She's coming up in 19 days as we're doing this recording probably less days when you actually listen to this episode. And we're going to be revealing all the speakers and topics are new and talking about why all ColdFusion developers worldwide go to this event. Welcome Kishore
here we got a script.
How you doing? Doing great, so fabulous. The sun has come out now. So fabulous day. For those of you don't know, Kishore, he's the principal Product Marketing Manager for ColdFusion Adobe. And he also you know, he's the voice of the customer his forte, you know, if you have concerns or questions, you can always direct them to him. And he talks to a lot of organizations who use cold fusion to find out you know, what they're doing with it.
All kinds of things there and he's coming to us live from Bangla through India. So
Kishore Balakrishnan 1:15
yes, stay, stay, stay, stay healthy. Keep, you know, keep doing good things we call fusion, by the way that those who don't know it just in case you think Kishore is like a marketing propellerhead. Really, he did a computer science degree. So he actually understands all this cold fusion stuff. I started working with cold fusion way back in 98, or sorry, around 2000. And I
didn't get a chance to get into it. But yes, I knew about cold fusion at that time. So
Michaela Light 1:51
