CF.Objective() So Far

So far I’ve been to two really good sessions at CF.Objective(). The first I was dubious about, “Indiana Jones and the Server of Doom,” but I actually learned some things about low-level memory management within ColdFusion, and I can definitely say I’ve got something new to check out on production boxes when I get back to the office. I’ll post more on that later.

Also the session from Adobe where they were highlighting server administration in the upcoming ColdFusion 9 was fantastic. It’s almost like they took a list of the things which cost the most time when maintaining servers today, and created all-new functionality to make managing this much easier. I’m very excited by this, things that are being manually configured on many, many instances today will be able to be rapidly and widely deployed when ColdFusion 9 (Centaur) comes out.

As with all conferences there are going to be times when there’s not much directed at your skill level. This is because there are people of all walks here, from new developers to seasoned experts. I fall somewhere in between, and so I’m doing pretty well on finding good sessions overall.

Next up: Advanced Subversion Techniques (”Subversion for Smarties”).  Here’s hoping it’s not review =)

    Um… How was the rest of the conference?

    The conference was good overall. I was pleasantly surprised by several sessions that I thought were going to be either review or just weren’t on a subject I thought I’d find interesting. At the same time several other sessions that I was really looking forward to were weak.

    In fact, the only sessions I expected to find very useful that actually were were the ones from Adobe.
