jQuery and AIR: Desktop Development for the Front End Designer with Andy Matthews

UPDATE: For anyone that may have missed this, here is the recording URL:

Unfortunately, we cannot all be in the beautiful city of Nashville tonight to see Andy Matthew present his jQuery and AIR: Desktop Development for the Front End Designer. And we weren't all at cf.Objective to catch it there (I was, it was great). But, you can still see it in person or online TONIGHT!

I think this presentation is a "must see". Not just for the Front End Designer, but for any of us who want to see the power of Adobe AIR when combined with something as fantastic and jQuery.


The Sun Presenter Console Extension for OpenOffice.org Impress

I have recently given up trying to keep up with Microsoft Office. I have nothing against the product, I just don't want to afford it. Especially when there is an excellent free alternative, namely OpenOffice.

I've been using OpenOffice Impress (the OpenOffice alternative to PowerPoint) for a while now, and I really like it. It has done everything that I have needed it to, until last month's Twin Cities ColdFusion User Group meeting.


My Presentation from last night's Twin Cities Java User Group Meeting

Last night I gave my "Intro to Application Security" presentation to the Twin Cities Java User Group. Considering I am not a Java developer, I thought things went pretty well. The TCJUG was a very warm and welcoming group who asked great questions and seemed genuinely interested in hearing what I had to say. Application Security is a subject that spans all languages.

On the recommendation of Marc Escher I picked up Presentation Zen by Garr Reynolds in preparation for my upcoming presentation at cf.Objective().

Looks like I'll be presenting at cf.Objective()

Last year, after attending cf.Objective(), I became really excited about blogging and learning more, and presenting something at cf.Objective() 2009 because a personal goal. I even added it to my list of goals for 2009 on my annual review at work. Now it looks like I will achieve that goal. Sweet.


My Presentation From the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group

I just finished my first presentation to the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group. I had a great time. There were no technical difficulties, and everyone was very nice. Some great questions too.

I look forward to doing that again some day. As requested, I am posting my presentation. It is available as a download on this post, it is also available from slidesix.com


I will be presenting to the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group Tomorrow

As many of you know, the Amazing Charlie Arehart, as one of his many contributions to the CFML Community, arranges and hosts the Online ColdFusion Meetup Group. The Online ColdFusion Meetup Group gets together (usually on Thursdays) for one or two online presentations. The topics are usually related to ColdFusion/CFML, Web Development, and just about anything else that can be related back to ColdFusion/CFML development. They also range in difficulty level from beginner to advanced.


Hey New Developers, come to the next Twin Cities CFUG meeting!!

I am really excited about the next Twin Cities ColdFusion User Group meeting. Next Wednesday (Nov. 5th 2008), we are going to try something new at our meeting.

So the normal session that night will be Kurt Wiersma talking about BlazeDS and ColdFusion. It should be AWESOME, and I am really sorry that I am going to miss it, but I am going to be doing something equally awesome. My goal for the night is to welcome new CFML(ColdFusion) developers into the CFUG.

So for those that do not know, there is a great resource available to us called the Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP).

From their web site:

The Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) is a worldwide free and open community focused on improving the security of application software. Our mission is to make application security "visible," so that people and organizations can make informed decisions about application security risks.
