I attended a CFLunch today. What is a CFLunch? As mentioned in a prior post, a CFLunch is a regularly scheduled lunchtime get together for ColdFusion folks, less structured and formal than a CFUG, a good way to chat, with lunch included. Today’s CFLunch in Chicago was attended by over 20 participants (3 of whom flew in from Cleveland for the lunch and the evening’s CFUG), and the chat topics varied from the job market to CSS questions to discussing the value of certification and more. I was very impressed with the event, and would encourage other cities to do the same (I was told that Denver is next).
This evening I got the chance to present to a combined session of the Chicago CFUG and MMUG. I used the time to discuss Macromedia Flex, and gave an introduction, showed lots of examples, and build a small app incrementally to demonstrate how it all works. Lots of good questions (about Flex and Blackstone), and lots of giveaways too. I remembered to bring my camera this time, and will post pics shortly.
