|MDCFUG Meeting Suggestions|
Previous suggestions (from newest to oldest):
- This isn't really a suggestion, more of a request for information and letting you know that the archives link doesn't work. The Archives don't go back to 2002. I'd really like to get my hands on the April 2002 memorial powerpoint about Mark Mathis. If whoever gets this knows where it is, I'd be grateful. -M. Mathis (the younger daughter)
- February 14 is Valentine's Day. Why are you hosting a meeting on that important day?
- I am a technical recruiter and would like to put job postings on this website. I currently have a permanent position available in Baltimore for a Web Applications Manager with Coldfusion experience. Please add an employment section to this website!
- Since you cover Mach ii this month, can you find someone to give a presentation on Model-Glue in either September or Octobor?
I couldn't find a more appropriate place to ask this question: I didn't see a ColdFusion Users Group listed on this site for the Manassas area. I believe there once was one, a few years ago. Can you give me any information about it?
- Dear Sir/Madam,
Could you perhaps add a link to my programming tutorial website, www.codeteacher.com in your links section ?
- Iwas searching around and have not really found an in-depth description of working with text files. I personally have to deal with comma delimited files all day, but my real problems started with those nasty mainframe generated text files. Also text files with sensitive data have to be encrypted after creation and decrypted upon retrieval with about 30 to 40 fields per line that need to be seperated using the mid() left() and right() functions to extract data from the text and then reformatted and padded out using numberformat(). Another problem I see alot is the removal of the square characters that ColdFusion 5.0 seems to have trouble getting at from using the chr(10) and chr(13) ascii characters as delimiters. My files at work are received as one long line with the null in between each line and ColdFusion just can't seem to get at it using Find() or Replace(). A primer on text files and PGP encryption would be great. Keep up the great work :-)
- Present "Test Driven Development using Smalltalk."
My company, Webucator, offers several levels of ColdFusion training. Would you be willing to add a link to http://www.webucator.com/WebDev/ColdFusion.cfm that reads "Webucator ColdFusion Training".
- sorry nothing about integration am stuck at following right now:
I am sending email through cfmail.. my outgoing mailserver requires authentication. now what should I do now.. Pls advise as there is no other way of defining username and password in the cfmail tag so that it can accept and send email hop to receive an early response by email at @ : firstname.lastname@example.org
- I just tried to unsubscribe from your email list while I'm on vacation. I got an error on the page so I don't believe the unsubscribe was successful. Please unsubscribe me from the mail list. I can subscribe again when I return.
- Java integration, performance benefits, CFC.
- Hi!!! I am an Advanced Coldfusion Developer and I am very interesrted in the presentation about "CF and .NET" by Geoff Snowman of Microsoft. I would like to know if you will publish this presentation on your site, otherwise, can you send it to my email? I thank you in advance, Jorge Servin, email@example.com
- A resource you may find interesting:
http://cfeclipse.tigris.org - A ColdFusion coding plugin for the Eclipse IDE.
- Java integration, performance benefits, CFC.
- hmmm, I can't seem to find a way to update my profile info (I've changed phone#)... seems like a natural site enhancement. Also, this suggestion list seems like a good place to put a small forums app; there are questions asked that others could benefit from your answers (or at least modify the post to add the answer or a link to one??).
- I've found some of your exmaples very helpful, especially the one on Verity.
I've published a "Getting started with Fusebox 3" course at http://www.benefit-from-it.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=FB3Tut01.
I'd be honoured if MDCFUG would link to it.
I have a quick link suggestion for your web site:
Dataride - Cold Fusion MX Web Site Hosting
Offers reliable Cold Fusion MX and Windows Web Site Hosting for businesses interested in database driven web sites using CF, ASP, and ASP.NET.
Thanks for your consideration.
- I know you are a die-hard CF user group, do you think you can also tag along a Flash user group? I could not find a Flash user group in Rockville area.
- I am trying to register for your upcoming .Net Seminar (Intro to .Net - May 13th 2003) on the web, and cannot find the appropriate links to Sign-up.
- I'm a .Net evangelist with Microsoft's Mid-Atlantic District, based in Washington, DC.
I was looking at the MDCFUG web site, and I wondered if your members would be interested in a presentation that is an introduction to Microsoft's .Net strategy. If you would find this interesting, let me know, I would enjoy working with you to deliver it.
- can any one please help out why coldfusion is better than asp and jsp in developing a website
- Using SQL Server stored procedures from CF
- Your link to http://www.cfug-md.org/Articles/RequestVariables.cfm seems broken
- User Defined Functions - how to use and tips and tricks
- Let's ask our members for their uses of the application.cfm file. Instead of a speaker, the
entire group could contribute with their ideas of good use and bad use of the application.cfm file. It might be different and fun.
- This is not exactly a suggestion.
I need your help to find Steve Nelson , from SecretAgents.com , regarding a Fusebox book he wrote.
I bought a book at his website and didn't receive the book , neither they anwer my e-mails , neither their phone is working.
- -Practical Applications of COM
Ever use the CFOBJECT tag? We detail how you can communicate with MS
Office (and other applications) through OLE automation.
- round table style discussion on “idea sharing and collaboration”. Our UG is
small enough to facilitate this type of forum so taking advantage of such a great pool of knowledge and experience from
around the area sounded like a good idea.
Books and articles have been written, presentations made, and standards handed down from on high, on the concepts of
collaboration and teamwork/idea sharing. However we think the best input comes from developers, developers like us, out
in the trenches, succeeding and (hopefully not often) failing based on their approaches to teamwork and collaboration
both in team environments and as consultants in a client environment. What works? What doesn’t? Here’s your chance to
tell the world, or at least a group of fellow professionals. Believe it or not collaboration and idea sharing is a
foreign concept to some. Maybe we can help open some eyes.
Here are some sample items we might want to talk about:
·Weekly meetings, with project status reports
·Workflow tools (Lotus Notes, MS Outlook, etc..)
·Extreme programming (catching on more and more)
·Assigning different team members to manage different projects
These are just a few quick thoughts that we could cover, please bring any others you’d like to discuss, all ideas are
welcome (assuming of course they relate to collaboration and idea sharing).
- i have some doubts regarding coldfusion. who will return an answer to this question?
does the count or recordcount will execute faster? if there are lot of records then which will give a better result?
- A new CFM engine in the horizon?
Please see www.tagservlet.com, they have a CFM engine which is written in Java, runs on top of Apache, and JServ. Still under development, but I think pretty impressive.
