Eric is a fairly new speaker at CFML conferences, but each one he speaks at, they rope him into presenting, 2 3 or 4 sessions. He always has a lot of great projects going on, and never ceases to impress. We're happy to have him speaker to you at this years Into the Box 2017… and he will be speaking about everything. He has 3 sessions, and he'll probably have more by the time we get to Into the Box. "ColdBox Elixir Deep Dive", "Making Modules", and will be assisting with "Behavior Driven Integration Development Exposed"

Eric Peterson (@_elpete) is a cfml and javascript developer at O.C. Tanner in Salt Lake City, Utah. He attended the University of Utah and received a degree in Information Systems thinking he would hate programming as a career. He started programming in cfml (and in general) in 2012 and has never been more happy to be proved wrong. What he lacks in experience, he makes up for by demos and blogging. A beginner himself, he blogs about many beginner topics at http://dev.elpete.com.

Making Modules

Workflows, tips, and tricks for making modules. Start in your application, extract to a separate module, add tests (even testing with ColdBox!), and easily script publishing to ForgeBox!


Speaker Questions

We asked Eric a few questions.

What made you want to speak at ITB 2017? *

I love the ColdBox community and sharing awesome ideas and tools I've learned and discovered

Anything in particular that you want to experience during the conference? *

I want to see others get excited about and feeling like they can contribute to the *Box Product family.

Tell us a little more about your Session at ITB

I will be speaking on ColdBox Elixir, a front-end build system tailored for ColdBox and Making Modules, ways to make awesome, testable, shareable modules quickly and easily on ForgeBox.

Why should an Attendee not miss your session?

If front-end builds confuse you or you just want simpler front-end builds, come to ColdBox Elixir. If you have some awesome ideas for modules you want out in the wild on ForgeBox, come to Making Modules

What's your favorite *Box Product and Why?

That would have to be ColdBox. Modules make me so happy. It is so gratifying to box install someModule and just have new functionality.

Tell us something random about yourself: *

My wife and I directed the musical Into the Woods in our community last fall.


Eric, Thanks for taking the time to answer these questions. I can't believe you only started programming in 2012. I am always impressed by what you bring to the community, and can't wait to see what you have cooking in your sessions this year.
