My Into The Box 2019 Schedule
Into The Box 2019 is this week! It’s pretty much THE conference for cutting edge CFML development, as you’ve heard me say repeatedly by now. :) Do you write CFML as part of your job? Still think it’s a “dead language”? This is the conference that easily proves that rumor incorrect. I’ll be giving 2 presentations — one on “CommandBox vs Node”, and due to a last minute schedule change I’m now also presenting “Real World Scenarios for Modern CFML”. This will be an updated version of the talk I gave at the Adobe ColdFusion Summit in Las Vegas in 2018.
As is often the case, there’s a ton of great content, and many pre-conference workshops to chose from at Into The Box. Here’s where you’ll probably be able to find me.

I know sometimes it can be difficult to try and justify the cost of going to a conference, the travel, the hotel. Each year I attend a handful of conferences. Sometimes I’m a speaker which helps keep the costs down (but my workload goes up, having to write the presentations). Any time I’ve had to shell out money for a conference, I’ve never regretted it. Find a conference with content that sounds interesting and lear a few things. Get out of your comfort zone: be it by learning some new techniques, or speaking to people at the mixers that you’ve only followed on Twitter.
Tickets are still available at the website. Do yourself a favor: make THIS the CFML conference you attend.
Hope to see you there!
