Last night’s San Diego CFUG presentation went very well. 55 attendees (most of whom had yet to really see Flex at work) got a taste of Flex 2, Flex CF integration, Flex Data Services, ColdFusion Flex Builder extensions, and a new never-before-publicly-seen wizard which creates complete MVC CF/Flex databases front ends (this demo which I saved until the end was met with applause and enthusiasm)!
But for me, the best part of the event was the announcements before I started. One gentleman stood up and said he was looking for a ColdFusion developer. Another stood up and said that he needed 5 experienced ColdFusion (and Fusebox or MVC) developers immediately for a 3-5 month contract. And then a third stood up (this person works for a placement firm) and said that he was looking for several ColdFusion developers to fill several full-time positions. Very nice to see!
