Tonight at 6pm Eastern Time I'll be presenting an overview of using ColdFusion MX 7 on Unix and Linux. I expect to require about an hour for the presentation, perhaps more depending on the volume of questions or discussion.

March Meeting

Meeting Name: Running ColdFusion MX 7 on Unix and Linux

Meeting Summary: A survey of the differences involved when running ColdFusion MX 7 on Unix or Linux instead of Windows. Topics covered include history of CF on Unix/Linux, current system requirements, migration paths, new features in Blackstone, installation scenarios and walkthrough, processes, troubleshooting, and IDEs. This is not an indepth discussion of CFMX 7 features, but a review of any interesting differences when using CFMX on Linux/Unix rather than Windows.

Meeting Date: March 10, 2005; 6pm Eastern Time; ~1 hour for preso, can continue on for questions

Meeting Location: Online meeting using Breeze Live, just open your browser to to join the online meeting. To participate in the conversation you might want to grab the conference number from the chat window in the meeting and then dial in. Otherwise, you can listen to the Breeze via VOIP.

strong>New Group Name

This group's name has officially been changed to The Online ColdFusion Meetup Group since the usage of Macromedia Breeze to conduct meetings can accomodate presenters and members from anywhere. I considered the names CFAnywhere/CFEverywhere ColdFusion Meetup Group, but those names might be confused with the CFAny/Everywhere projects.

Group Purpose

The impetus for forming this ColdFusion meetup group is to increase ColdFusion Community involvement and knowledge sharing given the unstable record of Boston ColdFusion User Group in my area. Evolving as an online group has the potential for large participation once meetings become regular, word spreads, and interesting speakers are recruited.

Call for Speakers

Please contact me with any information that might lead to a good presentation and discussion. If you or someone you know has ColdFusion or related presentation, then this meeting would be a great venue to add. Even if you have a ColdFusion or related subject that you'd just like to discuss, without actually having a presentation prepared already, then please consider that too. For example, say you just happen to know Mach II and would like to share your experiences with others, then that would work out very well.
