Speaking at ColdFusion Summit 2016

Next week is the ColdFusion Summit in Las Vegas.  I'll be giving my talk "Dependency Injection: Why Is It Awesome and Why Should I Care?".  This is the same talk I've given at conferences before, with some updated code examples. The talk itself is really about the concept of "Dependency Injection" and isn't specific to any of the libraries available (DI/1, WireBox, ColdSpring, etc).  Typically when I give this talk, it includes pseudocode examples that are loosely based on ColdSpring.  Those will still be included, but I'm also adding some actual code samples using various DI libaries, so there is a bit more of a "real world" takeaway for attendees.

Teaching a Git Class at CF Camp

Okay it’s official — I’ll be teaching a Git class at this year’s CF Camp in Munich Germany.  Typically at conferences I give a 1-hour talk called “Git Source Control: For The Rest of Us”, which is an intro to Git (and an intro to source control in general) with a GUI app instead of via the command line.  This class will be an extended version of the same thing.

Speaking at SacInteractive

Apparently I am a glutton for punishment. After spending all weekend in North Carolina for NCDevCon and giving to presentations, I’m also speaking this week at SacInteractive.  I’ll be giving my talk “Git Source Control: For The Rest of Us” that I gave at NCDevCon.  Exact same talk, exact same content.  Once for the east coast, once for the west coast.  Everybody wins. See you there. —nolan

NCDevCon 2016 Recap

At the airport to head home from NCDevCon 2016.  Yet again Dan Wilson and his crew put together a great event.  Each year I tell people NCDevCon is one of the best conferences to attend (especially for the price) and it never disappoints.

My NCDevCon Schedule

NCDevCon is this weekend!  Shameless plug: I’m giving talks on MVC in ColdFusion and Git for folks that don’t like command line tools.

The plane ticket is booked, the sessions are written, and as usual there is just too much great content at NCDevCon to make picking a schedule easy! But here’s my best guess as to where you’ll be able to find me at the conference.  (Many thank-yous to NCDevCon for recording the conference sessions; that’s saving me some stress.)

My Amazon AWS Summit Schedule

I’m attending the Amazon AWS Summit today, along with a handful of colleagues.  There’s a pretty massive amount of content, especially for a 1-day FREE conference! Assuming the trains are running on time (we’re coming in from Sacramento via Amtrak) here’s my best guess as to where you can find me. Probably.
