Meeting Name: Running ColdFusion MX 7 on Unix and Linux

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.

The first online meeting of the rejuvinated Boston ColdFusion Meetup Group happens tomorrow (news, details), coinciding with the release of Blackstone, or ColdFusion MX 7. Round up your ideas and questions and stop by for the discussion.

Cue evil laugh here ...

With a whopping overnight growth spurt, registered members of the (virtual) Boston Coldfusion Meetup Group has jumped to 14 people from Sacramento to Lincoln, MA. This makes us the largest ColdFusion Meetup Group in the universe.... Muwahahaha!

Since most of the meetings will be conducted virtually using Macromedia Breeze Live, CF people from all over are welcome to attend online.

The first meeting is this coming Monday, Feb 7th, at 6pm ET. For more information see the following:

CFUnited 2005

Just confirmed registration for this years mega ColdFusion User Group meeting, CFUNITED, formerly named CFUN.

Hopefully, I'll be able to attend a long list of sessions. I think Macromedia might pull together a CF Tech Support booth with a couple folks, and if that comes through then I expect to be manning that in between sessions.

See the CFUnited website for more, or grab a brewski and catch Simon on the big screen!

CFUnited, The premier ColdFusion User Conference

I've been attending this meeting for many years now since it was a CF Odyssey at NIH, and wow has it ever grown! Given that Macromedia MAX is is a cross-product conference, this just may be the biggest CF-only conference anywhere.

Check out the game questions I wrote for previous CFUNs:

For anyone interested, you are welcome to join the new Online ColdFusion Meetup Group. This group meets virtually once a month, and the next speaker for April is expected to be Mike Brunt of Webapper, presenting on his ColdFusion monitoring tool SeeFusion ...

Boston Coldfusion Meetup Group, ... Virtually

In lieu of an active Boston CFUG, I've taken the bull by the horns by organizing the Boston Coldfusion Meetup Group. This group can augment the Boston CFUG proper, but isn't intended to replace it.

Initially, the meetings will conducted virtually using Macromedia Breeze Live and a conference call line. Optionally, if a venue is found we could consider a physical location for hands-on sessions at a later time.

XML User Interface Languages (XUL) Meetup

Recently posted to the mailing list, there will be an International XUL Meetup day this week, Tuesday, April 6th. There's one in my area scheduled for Chili's in Westford at 7pm. The group appears to organize these meetups on the first Tuesday each month, although I know nothing about them so far, so I don't know when they formed or how long they've been meeting. The only XML user interface langauges that come to mind at this point include XSLT, XSL-FO, XAML, and of course MXML, but it appears that XUL has its own specification all by itself.

I'd be interested in attending some time, just to see the scope of the discussion in case it extends to the general class of XML UI languages. For more information see:
