Q & A with Nathaniel

What made you want to speak at Into The Box?

I love the community and enjoy sharing what I know. Hopefully this will help some folks try new things.

What does web development mean to you?

It's a double-edged sword. On the one hand, it's some of the most enjoyable and rewarding work I've ever done. On the other hand, it has its own share of frustrations and irritations.

Anything you want to experience during the conference?

As usual with the ColdFusion community and ColdBox group, I'm looking forward to the camaraderie and mutual support. It's nice to be among friends.

What advice would you give to your younger self, knowing what you know now?

Keep trying. Keep learning. There's always something new around the bend.

This year's lineup of speakers has lots of quality, what other session(s) are you looking forward to attending?

I'm interested to see the Preside presentation. I don't work with the product, but I've heard great things.
