CF Camp 2018 Recap

Two planes, two continents, a two-hour drive from San Francisco, and 36-ish hours later, I’m finally home from CF Camp 2018!

My CFCamp 2018 Schedule

Greetings from Munich Germany!  On Thursday and Friday I’ll be at CFCamp, the conference for all things CFML/ColdFusion in Europe!  Who says ColdFusion is dead? CFCamp has grown year after year, having to move to bigger venues twice in the last 4 years.  

Speaking at CF Camp 2018

Freshly back from ColdFusion Summit, and it’s already almost time to leave for the next conference. In a few weeks I take off for Munich to speak at CF Camp 2018!

how do we handle nulls in OTHER platforms?

and real datatype is preserved
if it’s a ‘string’ it will continue to be a bool in CF2018

ColdFusion Summit 2018 Recap, Part 1

Last week was the 2018 ColdFusion Summit in Las Vegas. By all accounts it was a very successful event! This year’s conference was held at the Hard Rock Hotel, slightly off the strip more than past hotels have been, but I didn’t really mind. Between teaching a pre-conference workshop and the various music references in the hotel, I didn’t really have a need (or time) to venture out until after the conference was totally over.

In a few hours I jump on a plane for Las Vegas to attend the Adobe ColdFusion Summit!
