This will be an "intro" talk, covering Bootstrap 2 and 3, and some of t....
It's that time of year where I nerd out over the CDs purchased in the last 12 months and pick my favorites. I spent a big portion of this year stuck in some sort of 90's-post-hardcore fixation (mostly purchasing things like old Jawbreaker and Helmet albums), but to my surprise I did end up buying a....

Dave's talk was fascinating! He really knows his stuff, and I found myself getting sucked into watching the code samples and just listening to him, so I didn't end up taking very many notes. But here's what I was able to scribble down in between gazes of awe. :)

I saw Jason give a version of this talk at a different conference some time ago. He was giving it again at CF Summit due to a last minute schedule change, and Jason stepped in to fill the empty slot. Jason is one of my favorite speakers, blending the right combo of humor and info, keeping everyone....
Thursday Keynote -- Adobe Staff
ColdFusion's been around for a long time, since 1995.
ColdFusion is dead -- for 8 years people have been saying that, over half the time it's been around!
Units sold per quarter thru 2012 and 23013 exceeding 2011 numbers.
I'm at the airport waiting for my flight home. Thoroughly exhausted and excited about the last few days. Overall I think everyone agrees that the ColdFusion Summit was a big success. For me personally it started out a little rough, then got noticeably better as the days progressed.
This Tuesday (tomorrow) Seth Duffey is going to be presenting at SacInteractive on Dynamic CSS. He'll cover bits of LESS and bits of Stylus. And we might even have pizza. (Please send sponsors my way! This credit card is filling up quickly! :) )
