Let's see if we can carve out a time in May to get together.
Back when we were getting together regularly, we would meet the 2nd Thursday of every month. But that's passed already for May.
Bilal has said "It should be possible to use our meeting room. We are located in Indian Land, SC now. Close to the big Wal-Mart in Ballentyne."
I have a deep feeling of gratitude to this users group and would like to get together sometime in May to do a presentation on HTML5 and offline capabilities. I’m putting together a program specifically for training purposes that shows jQuery Mobile along with a Web SQL Database so that users can interact with data on their iPad even if they’re offline, and can then sync it with the server once they are back within Wi-Fi range.
Marc Stowe has offered to do a presentation in June, so I think we need a place where we can meet on a semi-regular basis.
What do you think about getting together this Thursday at 6pm? I know it would be the 3rd Thursday, but I'm just putting up a trial balloon at this point.
I thought I'd pass along some info that there are two meetups in Charlotte this week.
I approached Doug Hughes about having regularly scheduled Google hangouts to discuss things that I knew I should be doing, but have never gotten around to doing them yet. Putting projects up on Github and using Test Driven Development are things that I should be doing.
So we’ve had two sessions where I’ve exposed holes in my development cycle. I’m doing this a) to close said holes, but also b) to build a community of people that want to learn (and in the future share) how to become better developers.
So come join us in a Googles hangout Wednesday around 3:00pm EST.
Here’s Doug’s blog where he has been posting announcements as well as the recordings themselves.
This week we’re going to talk about how to push code up to production.
Learn CF in a Week is a community driven training program that teaches all the basics you need to be a ColdFusion Developer in one week.
This course was created by community experts who specialize in the different fields they wrote about, and cover all the essential skills. Completing this course will help you on your way to be hired as a ColdFusion developer, should that be a chosen career path. If you do not wish to work as a ColdFusion developer but wish to gain some ColdFusion knowledge, then this course is also for you.
Comprising of written information about different ColdFusion features and matching hands on chapters that show you how to use the concepts that were just covered. Throughout the course, you will take a basic HTML web site and add ColdFusion logic to it until you have a fully functioning ColdFusion web site that is ready to be launched.
The focus of this course is for you to learn all the skills you need to be a developer using real world scenarios. The content taught in the course is not designed to tell you about everything to do with ColdFusion, but to give you the knowledge you will need in day to day programming and for tasks you will come across on a daily basis. There is no teaching for teaching's sake in this course; even the sample application you will build is a useful application.
Team ColdBox has organized "ColdBox Developers Week" which is a full week of free online training for ColdFusion developers scheduled July 23rd through July 27th. ColdBox is a widely-used MVC Development Platform for ColdFusion and they do their best to provide accessible training for ColdFusion developers to learn best-practices, scalability, unit testing and more.
More information about the sessions, speakers, and registration are all available here: http://www.coldbox.org/cbdw

We’d love to know all the technologies that your group is interested in and what your goals are for the group and how we can help you meet them – and spread the word about Manning’s books of course.
Alright guys, we’ve had some interest in getting the gang back together again, and by that I mean: you included. So the first thing we need to do is find a meeting place.
Having somewhere consistent would be easiest, but I don’t mind if it moves around a lot. So if you feel that you could volunteer your place, even for only one month, then let us know.
The next thing to do is to schedule speakers. I guess we could some of the social networking to let people know that if they’re every in Charlotte, give us a call and we’ll book a meeting.
I need to be a lot more proactive in “making the ask”.
So what topics do you want to talk about? I’ve thrown together an impromptu Google spreadsheet. Down the left-hand side are Adobe products, across the top should be people’s names, or in the case of Sutton, his nickname: Devilfish.
Go into it, edit it, add your name, add any topics you would be interested in hearing about, and somehow designate any topics that you would like to speak on.
Area 15 in Charlotte is one of the locations for something called "Node.js Knockout" beginning tonight and going on over the entire weekend.
See this post from Ben Nadel for an example of a proof-of-concept.
The competition kicks off at 8PM Friday and ends at 8PM Sunday. I'm not competing, but will _probably_ make my way down there to visit.
From what I understand, visitors are welcome.
The twitter contact for Area 15 is @DanRajuTK.
I’m really excited to tell you about the upcoming online ColdFusion meetup. I’ll be doing a presentation on what I affectionately call the jQuery Matrix.
You can read about more here.
It will be Thursday, August 4th at noon, and here's the link to the meeting room.
Adobe Creative Suite Evangelists are hosting a Q&A Session from 9am- 10am PDT on 4/11 on www.facebook.com/creativesuite It would be great to see you all there and please spread the word!
Let's see, 9am PDT is... Noon EDT.
