CFUNITED Day One Wrap Up

Day one of CFUNITED is winding down (aside from what I suspect will be a long evening of hanging out at the bar). Michael Smith and crew have outdone themselves once again, with over 900 attendees (over a 1000 including staff and exhibitors).

This morning's keynote went very well. I presented ColdFusion powered Flex, demonstrating the Flex Builder ColdFusion wizards and a Flex Data Services example. I also reviewed pricing and deployment options, and the assembled were ecstatic when they heard what the final pricing is. Next came Jason Delmore, ColdFusion's new Product Manager, who talked a bit about "Scorpio", and demonstrated examples of ColdFusion integration with PDF forms and ColdFusion generated Breeze content. And then we introduced ColdFusion's new Product Marketing Manager, our very own Tim Buntel, dragged back in from semi-retirement-kind-of.

The rest of the day has been a blur of customer chats and meetings. Flex 2 is definitely a big deal, as is the relief at seeing Adobe still committed to ColdFusion. (I am not going to say "I told you so", but ...).

During this time Flex has been successfully deployed in a variety of organizations, both public and private. The highest profile Flex deployment to date is obviously Yahoo! Maps, which is built using Flex 1.5. And now Adobe Flex 2 has arrived, adding lots more functionality, and making Flex far more accessible to developers everywhere. What does this mean for us ColdFusion developers? This Dev Center article explains.
