CFUGORAMA , Washington, DC (May 17, 2000)
It's official, a new record has been set! Sponsored by Allaire, Fig Leaf Software, and TeraTech, and in conjunction with the DC and MD CFUG's, this event holds the new CFUG attendance record - 700 attendees! There were folks there from all over the USA (as far as Arizona) and even an attendee from South Africa! Held at the Marriott Wardman Park hotel (same venue as the Allaire 2000 Developer's Conference), the overflow crowd spilled into the upstairs balcony (see the picture) and there was standing room only. Ashley King gave a Spectra demonstration, and I spoke on optimizing ColdFusion. We did not stop till after 11 pm (some folks were there for over 4 hours!). All in all an awesome event, and one that'll be hard to top.
