Speaker/Topics
  • 10:00am Michael Smith - FLiP for CF
    What is FLiP and can it help improve our client communication and projects? FLiP is the Fusebox Lifecycle Process and covers wireframing, prototyping, devnotes and formal sign-off as a way to increase communication and reduce project screw ups.

  • 10:30am Jeff Peters - Analytic Synthesis: Think Before You Build
    Critical thinking is an underdeveloped art, but one that is vital to successful application development. Analytic Synthesis is the consolidation of two decades of investigation into success and failure in application development. This technique provides insight into the general methods employed by successful creators in a wide variety of disciplines. Take a look at the way you think, and you'll never approach a project "the way we've always done it" again.

  • 11:00am Michael Dinowitz - Trust me, it'll be good
    Michael will start on trusting your source of information, on to testing that trust, then on to the main topic which he would like to keep secret for now. As always with "Mr House of Fusion" it will be interesting. :-)

  • 12:00pm Charlie Arehart - Taking a Look At Security Options in CFMX
    In CFMX, there are new options for providing security both for user authentication (logging in your users and controlling what they an do) and for resource/sandbox security (controlling what resources, such as datasources, files/directories, tags, functions, and more) that your application can access. In this 30 minute discussion, Charlie will help put these new features into perspective, contrast them to previous release features, and help you to see how easily you can work with these--and show you why it's important that you understand them.
