24hrs till CFunited! (Sort of)

Well, cfunited is actually 2 days away, but I'm driving down tomorrow to meet Paul K and Adam L (sounds like spy names or something) in Bethesda. I'm speaking at DoS on tuesday, and it's Adam's birthday, so I think the cfunited festivities should start a little early! I'm definitely looking forward to a really fun week, there's a lot of great sessions, and lots of really smart people to hang out with and try to leach some brain power off of!

I also would like to extend the open invitation to anyone interested to have some adhoc bofs on Aspect Oriented Programming, I'd be happy to do my presentation from cfObjective, and although I haven't asked him, I'm hoping Simeon would take part, because he's been doing some really fantastic and cutting edge stuff with AOP and flex these days.

OK, can't wait to see everyone there, and oh yeah, if anyone is going to be around BWI tuesday at 3ish and wants to pick up Dave Ross so he doesn't have to take a bus down to the conference, that would be really great. I'm not sure I can make it up there and back for the speaker dinner after the DoS thang...

Go watch this and see your head spin wildly!

Check out this completely nutty video from Joe Rinehart demoing the new ModelGlue Unity. It's completely insane!

For those of you who don't yet know, Unity is a wonderful marriage of the ModelGlue, ColdSpring and Reactor frameworks, which WILL change a huge amount of the landscape for many ColdFusion developers. Enjoy, and thanks Joe!

ColdSpring 1.0 RC1!

Well, I think it looks like I'm a little late to the party, because blogger SUCKS and I couldn't log into my own freakin' blog all day, but...

I'm extremely happy to announce the availability of ColdSpring 1.0 RC1! It's a bit overdue, and of course there will probably be a small wait for the final release, but things seem to be very stable at this point. So please, download the latest and provide some feedback to the list!

PS, anyone wanting to donate some sweet server goodness to host a nice little mg4j blog app so I can move this damn thing, I'd be soooooo happy!
