As part of the Scorpio User Group Tour, Ben Forta will be speaking in Nashville on Wednesday, May 9, 2007. The time and location has not been decided; the Nashville ColdFusion User Group Web site will have all the up-to-date information.

Since this is such a huge event, the Nashville CF user group invites anyone in the surrounding cities, counties, and states to come hear Ben speak on the next major release of ColdFusion, code-named "Scorpio." If you've never had the opportunity to hear Ben in person and you aren't able to attend any conferences this year, this is your chance to gather your co-workers, friends, or whatever, and make the trip to Nashville.

In addition to hearing Ben speak you will also have the opportunity to win a copy of Scorpio and gain access to the pre-release Scorpio beta.

Here's the official blurb from the Nashville CFUG Web site:

Even before the release of the highly successful ColdFusion MX 7 two years ago, the ColdFusion team was already hard at work scheming, experimenting, planning, building, creating ... and the result is "Scorpio", the highly anticipated 8th major ColdFusion dition. Building on top of the powerful platform introduced in ColdFusion MX, and the solid feature set of ColdFusion MX 7, "Scorpio" piles on new features and technologies for developers, administrators, technical decision makers, and more. The official "Scorpio" release is scheduled for mid-2007, but you don't have to wait until then to see it for yourself. Ben Forta will be demoing lots of Scorpio throughout an extended user group tour in the spring, where attendees will get to see "Scorpio" in action, as well as gain access to the pre-release beta, and get the chance to win Adobe software. And since our user group is part of the Scorpio tour, plan on coming out for this special meeting!!

  1. This is gonna be great. Can't wait to hear about the new features in Scorpio.

    Those of you in Bowling Green, Fort Campbell, Louisville, Memphis, Chattanooga and surrounding cities should definitely make plans to be here in Nashville. Especially since Ben will be raffling off a copy of Scorpio!
