Toronto Wraps My Usergroup Presentations

Last night I presented ColdFusion, Flex, and more to a joint meeting of the local Flex and ColdFusion groups. The group took a little while to warm up, but then really got going. The session ran over 2 hours and was highly interactive.

Big winners were spreadsheet integration, ORM, Bolt extensions, and the data connectivity in Flash Builder 4. We also got into a lively and heated tangent conversation about the AS3 server proof-of-concept shown during the MAX sneaks last year (the crowd was lobbying heavily to turn this into a product).

Last night wrapped my scheduled usergroups presentations, for now.

    As one of the people that was there... I'll second that! :)

    The pres focused a little too much on CF for my liking, but then it was a joint CF & Flex UG meeting, oh well. On the whole it was great, learned a lot, and yeah you do talk fast but I liked it: better than caffeine, and never a boring moment! (And there were some great prizes too ;)

    Thanks for such a great presentation Ben, and for listening to us pixel pushers in the trenches... you're awesome dude!

    Ben, thank you for the awesome presentation. Looking forward to CF9.
    And to Joeflash, no there was not too much CF :).
    There is never enough CF.
