ColdBox at the OpenCF Summit

Curt Gratz |  January 19, 2011

ColdBox will be at OpenCF Summit. Don't know what the OpenCF Summit is? It is "a community gathering focused exclusively on advancing free and open source software in the CFML community."

I will be hosting a offical ColdBox Unconference. I am very excited to meet with other developers(ie YOU) and have a conversation about advancing ColdBox and sharing some of the different ways we can use the robust framework in our development. I am also excited about learning more about some of the different Open Source ColdFusion projects and ways we as a community can advance those projects. What a great concept for a conference.

If you are wondering why you should care open this "open source" stuff, Bob Silverberg recently posted Why Contribute to Open Source Projects?

If you are wondering why you should go to the OpenCF Summit, check out Jamie Krug's post Go To OpenCF Summit!

If you still aren't convinced to go, the great news is, the price was just dropped to $30. So for the price of a dinner you get

  • A 3 day professional conference
  • A great lineup of speakers
  • The chance to participate in a community "hackfest"
  • The opportunity to network within the greatest development community on the planet

If you have any ideas for things you would like to discuss at the ColdBox Unconference, leave me a comment and we will do our best to cover your idea in some fashion, or just come to the event with your creative juices flowing.

See you at the OpenCF Summit.
