August Meeting: BlazeDS with Dave Ferguson
On Wednesday, August 3, Dave Ferguson (CFHour) will present to the Los Angeles ColdFusion User Group on ColdFusion 9 and BlazeDS.
BlazeDS is a great way to push a simple message from a server to a client. It is typically used to create alerts on a logged in client, or even basic chat messages. But, what if it could be more? What if it could be used to push larger data sets to a client?
In this session we will look into the basics of how BlazeDS works. Once we get that out of the way, we will have some fun exploring other uses. We will look into pushing things like images and html chunks, as well as json data sets to a client. The session will show how easy it can be to create, send and process different types of data. All it takes is the right combination of tools and a little creative thinking.
Dave has been working in information technology for about 14 years. He has spent the majority of that time specializing in large enterprise-class systems. Dave currently holds a Master ColdFusion Developer certification as well as many other information technology certifications. In his current employ he is the system architect, technical project leader, and lead developer for an enterprise-wide digital asset management (DAM) system for the Walt Disney Company. He has also written a couple articles for the ColdFusion Developers Journal as well as running his own ColdFusion blog, blog.dkferguson.com. He is also one of the voices of the CFHour podcast. The podcast, just like his blog, is mostly focused on ColdFusion but dabbles in to other technologies. Dave is also a member of the Adobe Community Professional group.
