My Into The Box 2018 Schedule

Plane ticket, check. Hotel, check. Into The Box 2018 is this week. As I mentioned in “Five Things To Know About Into The Box 2018” that was my favorite CFML event of 2017, and the 2018 conference looks to be about the same.  As usual, with so much great content, I’m having a hard time deciding where to spend my time. A lot of it came down to info in the session descriptions — thank you to all the speakers that provide detailed info, making it easy to tell what I’ll learn from your sessions!

Here’s my best guess as to where I’ll be hanging out:

05:25 PM - 06:20 PM: Building High Performance Teams OR Assert Control Over Your Legacy Applications with TestBox

Regarding my session “Connecting Vue.js and CFML with ColdBox”, we’ll start at the beginning with both Vue.js and getting an API working in ColdBox.  You don’t need to be an expert in either one to get value from my session; you should come away from that session with enough into to get started using both pieces.  And I’ll of course make my slides and code samples available online after the conference.

Tickets are still available, but going fast. If you’re on the fence about attending, I strongly recommend you jump on a ticket quickly! There’s also the “streaming video ticket for people that can’t make it to Houston but want to watch everything live from the comfort of your living room.

Hope to see you there!
