As the organizer of the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group I'd like help spread the word that CFUNITED's Michael Smith and I have been sponsoring online previews of the topics which will be presented in full at the conference. These previews cover ColdFusion development as well as related web technologies. Moreover, the CFLive! talks are given by the original speaker for the topic, and they are intended to provide a summary and flavor of the subject matter so that you can decide if you'd like to add it to your conference schedule to hear the full session.

These talks are about 1/2 hour including time for Q&A, usually Thursdays at noon US/Eastern time. (Timezone Help)

The url for the Breeze meeting is listed in the MORE INFORMATION section of the RSVP page. In the Breeze Meeting, just click the button to login as GUEST with no password but enter your name when prompted, and then you'll join the meeting from your browser.

If you've never used Breeze, get a quick overview.

Using the Message Board, I usually post the recorded meeting URL so anyone can view it later if you missed it. In addition, I'll update the CFLive! recordings here as well.

CFUNITED is the only conference of its kind that is run by developers, for developers. What this means is that the topics are exactly what web developers need to learn now and are based on real world experience. There are real users in the case studies so you can see what your colleagues at other organizations are doing. It also means that the marketing fluff stops at the door -- so you can learn more from other developers! CFUNITED unites the whole ColdFusion and web development community.
