Our next speaker would've betted with absolute certainty that he was going to be a university professor of English literature. As you may have guessed, because his ITB session isn't a lecture on SonnetBox, even best laid plans of mice and men often go awry. Everyone, please meet Matthew Clemente.
Matt will be leading the “Do It with CFML: Building Your Own Tools with CommandBox” session on Thursday, May 7th at 1:00 PM - 1:50 PM. You should attend since “CommandBox has made managing CFML servers so much easier - but if you're only using it to spin up servers, you're barely scratching the surface of what CommandBox can do. If you're interested in all the other stuff that CommandBox can do, and more ways that it can make you life easier, and automate your workflows, my session should provide you with a solid starting point.”
As to what he’s looking forward to, he states: “So, so many of the sessions. Most of them for practical, real-world uses. However, I'm particularly looking forward to Tony Junkes session, "Build A Desktop Application Powered By Electron, VueJS & CFML", because I probably would get the chance to explore that tech, were it not for the conference.”
We are happy to announce that TeraTech, the ColdFusion consulting firm, will be joining us as a bronze sponsor this year! TeraTech is dedicated to helping CIOs secure ColdFusion apps from hackers, speed up and make reliable their slow and crashing CF servers, and develop modern CF apps with few bugs, on time and within budget.
Founded in 1989, TeraTech ColdFusion experts have more than 150 years of combined experience. The company was awarded “Best ColdFusion Consulting Firm” by the ColdFusion Developers’ Journal 5 times in a row.
Michaela Light, CEO of TeraTech, is a recognized expert in the ColdFusion community, author of the best-selling CF Alive book, host of the CF Alive podcast, publisher of the annual State of the CF Union survey, and founder of the CFUnited conference.
She says “I’m here to show you that ColdFusion is a vibrant and modern language for complex, data-driven enterprise apps.”
If you're interested in learning more, make sure to stop by their virtual booth at our conference.
Our next Into the Box speaker is a fanatic pizzaiolo, home baker and never buys bread from supermarkets. He is also the admin of the Dutch home baking forum. He’s been using CF since the dark times of CF 1.5 when CFML was still called DBML and Java was just something to make the Netscape browser slower. Everyone, please meet Wil de Bruin.
Wil will be leading the Validate! (or fail…) session on May 7th from 3:10 PM until 4:00 PM. In his own words, you should attend his session even though “ cbvalidation is already [considered] an 'old' module, but most people don't use it to its full potential. I want to show people more ways to use it. You don't need other ways of validation. And I will discuss where we can still improve on this module.”
When it comes to a Box product of his liking, he states: “CommandBox, and many many modules. Some of my favourites: qb and cfmigrations for most database stuff, cbvalidation for it's power, and the new cbsecurity for all new features. And HMVC rest templates. They make developing our API a lot easier. Now the REST handler will be part of coldbox6 it makes it even more usable, and better documented.”
At our previous conferences, Wil always liked the discussions with other people, the party and of course the inspiring content. However, “this year it is just the content, I will really miss the people. The thing I do like this year is: no jetlag and not being in a plane for 2x10 hours.”
