Due to a number of factors including a change in my career direction and lack of time to focus on the business, I have reached the decision to focus my energy elsewhere. If anyone has questions regarding previous work done by CWD, please contact me at: mike […]

Adobe Coldfusion?

Well, the Adobe acquisition of Macromedia is now complete. I must say that I’m a bit concerned, especially after reading the Acquisition FAQ on Adobe’s site. ColdFusion is not mentioned *anywhere* on this page! Now, I realize that all products certainly aren’t listed (for both companies), and I presume that CF would fall in the […]

Firefox 1.5!

Firefox 1.5 has officially been released! I have it installed and am checking it out now. I think the best feature overall is “drag and drop” capability for browser tabs. One thing to note: If you have a lot of Firefox extensions installed, you may want to see if there are 1.5-compatible versions available before […]

ColdFusion Report Builder – Documentation?

I’e been using CF report builder since it was released. While it certainly is a great (and highly touted) feature of CFMX 7, it has quickly become apparent that work on the app was rushed to completion in order to be able to include it with the 7 release. I won’t go into the specific […]

CFUNITED : Final Day

Today was my final day in DC. After checking out of the hotel, Stacey and I abandoned our bags, and hit the White Flint Metro. We debated about going to the Mall to a Smithsonian museum or the music festival they were having, but ultimately decided to go to the National Zoo since we had […]

CFUNITED : Day 3

I started today with “CFMX Mobile SMS Applications Made Easy”. It was interesting to see the possibilities opened with this functionality in CF 7. After this, I attended the House of Fusion’s book auction in the sponsor area. I can’t believe that more people didn’t show up for this! Maybe it was because there was […]

CFUNITED : Day 2

Today opened with “Designing and Coding for Search Engines”. This session pointed out several issues relating to how to improve your site’s ranking, some of which I was aware of, others that I wasn’t. After this, I attended “SQL Server Performance Tuning”, which I would say was the most relevant session to my current work […]

CFUNITED : Day 1

Today started off with a great keynote about the direction of CF from Ben Forta and Tim Buntel, as well as a short overview of each of the presenters’ upcoming sessions. Following the keynote, I attended the CFML Developer’s Guide to .NET and SQL Server 2005 for CF Developers before lunch. Both of these sessions […]

Final Day

Today was the final day of MAX. It was a long day but the sessions today were very good. We started off the day with breakfast on the Mississippi at Cafe Du Monde, and had coffee and beignets…yumm! I was able to get into the Flex application building hands-on session first thing and that was […]

Mardi Gras World

Today was special event day! Mardi Gras World was awesome, we had a great part there and all of the diverse floats were very cool. This was a huge improvement over Salt Lake City. The Olympic Oval was nice, but SLC cannot compare to the vibrant city of New Orleans! The sessions today were great, […]
