Geoff Bowers of Daemon, based in Sydney, Australia, will provide a full hour introduction to the open source FarCry CMS, including a preview of FarCry 3.1. This event will be on Wednesday May 24 for the US timezones, and Thursday May 25 for Australia/Asia timezones. See below for timezone details.

FarCry CMS is Daemon's flagship offering, an intuitive and extensible Content Management System that puts "controlled power" into the hands of the people who own your site content. FarCry is a cutting edge ColdFusion MX application framework for web based content management that blends the very best of open source development with commercial backing and support.

This will be an online meeting in cooperation with the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group which uses Adobe Breeze Meeting software to conduct live, online ColdFusion related seminars. This particular meeting will be synchronized with the local Boston ColdFusion User Group which will hold an in person meeting at the East Coast office for Adobe in Newton, MA.

You might know Geoff as the creator of the popular blog aggregator Full As A Goog, or as part of Team Macromedia, currently known as Adobe Community Experts.

Geoff Bowers is an Antipodean with a Caledonian education. A one-time biochemist who sold his soul to the City, he gave up trading to become a web entrepreneur. Heading up the team at Daemon, Geoff divides his time between being CEO and tapping out the odd bit of code.
