Bob Flynn and crew opened registration for BFlex and BFusion 2009 taking place in Bloomington, Indiana for the third straight year. For $10/day you get all you can eat ColdFusion and Flex hands-on training. Let me say that again in case you missed it. Hands. On. Training. BFlex/BFusion isn't your normal conference where a presenter gets up and shows slides and talks for 60 minutes. Each session is 90-minutes and includes hands-on instructions where you "do" instead of just listen. It's great content, great speakers and at $10/day is a downright steal.
I'll be presenting two topics this year. My BFusion talk will center around new caching strategies in ColdFusion 9. We'll go through several exercises where you'll write code using the new features in ColdFusion 9 announced at Adobe MAX in Los Angeles just last week. My BFlex session will be the same one I did as a BYOL (bring your own laptop) lab for Adobe MAX last week. We'll talk about how ColdFusion 9 and BlazeDS are now integrated and we'll build an application using Flash Builder 4 beta and ColdFusion Builder beta that makes use of messaging features built into BlazeDS.
If you are anywhere near the Bloomington area I encourage you to look seriously at this conference. It's a great opportunity to garner some first hand experience with Adobe Flex and Adobe ColdFusion.
