Macromedia Hiring ColdFusion Product Support

If you thought about participating in the CF Survivor game last week at CFUNITED, then step up to the plate and try the real thing! There's a contract position open for a ColdFusion Product Support Engineer (tech support) right here in Newton, Massachusetts. Check it out.

From my experience, I can tell you that Macromedia ColdFusion Product Support encompasses not only the ColdFusion server and the CFML language, but also the wealth of web technologies and protocols that integrate with ColdFusion including TCP/IP, HTTP, SQL, SMTP, LDAP, plus operating system usage and administration for Windows, Solaris, and Linux. There's a lot more than that, too.

I find this role at Macromedia to be perpetually challenging and I enjoy learning and keeping up with emerging technologies. Additional perks include exposure to all the Macromedia products, and training is often provided for many of them, including Flash, Flex, Dreamweaver, and Breeze.

Model-Glue BOF: Stop the insanity!!!

Ok, as blogged in my earlier post, the Model-Glue BOF session turned in to a Technology Wild West Show, with danger lurking behind every slide, but dispite the hiccups, Joe held his course and forged smoothly ahead with the presentation.

CFUNITED Day one a wrap: Sessions, BOFs, and Community

Today was seriously intense. The day started at 8am with a Welcome talk to introduce all of this year's speakers followed by a great keynote address by Ben Forta and Tim Buntel, with guest appearance by Simeon Bateman of the CFEclipse proejct (Thanks for the Sam Adams!). At first I tried attending sessions while taking notes which I later blogged, and this worked for a while during Ray Camden's, Nate Nelson's, and Simon Horwith's talks.

Blog In Black - Outstanding Breezo on Using Eclipse for CF, Flex, ActionScript, and SQL

I'd been considering finding a speaker to discuss Eclipse, CFEclipse, and related as an event at the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group, but Kai Kˆnig of bloginblack.de recently recorded a presentation on this.

Kai did an absolutely fantastic job providing a survey of multiple uses Eclipse for ColdFusion, Flex, ActionScript, and as a Database explorer through a discussion of slides and plenty of good demos and walkthroughs.
