2006 FastTrack At CFDevCon - Learn FusionDebug and FusionReactor
If you are planning on attending CFDevCon, then this will be of interest to you. Charlie Arehart will be teaching a full-day course on FusionDebug and FusionReactor on November 10th, 2006, the day after the conference.
FusionDebug enables developers to debug their programs by setting breakpoints, stepping into tags and CFCs, examining the contents of variables and watching expressions and much more.

The course costs £249 (+VAT) and each attendee will receive a free license of FusionDebug (value $299) and free admission to CFDevCon. You can register online.
2006 So Why Is MAX At The Venetian?
Sure, The Venetian is one of Vegas' hottest properties. And it's also home to both the Vegas production of Phantom of the Opera as well as Blue Man Group. And then there are The Grand Canal Shoppes and the spectacular new Venezia Tower. That's all great. But what is really appealing about The Venetian is that The Venetian web site is powered by ColdFusion MX 7!
And you thought we just picked any old location for MAX! ;-)
