1. Online ColdFusion Meetup (coldfusionmeetup.com) session for July 26 2012: "Automating CFML App Build, Test, Deploy", with Joseph Lamoree.

    Description from the presenter:

    My presentation focuses on the lifecycle of crafting a CFML application using a workflow that automates and standardizes several aspects:

    - Prerequisites, considerations, and problem description
    - Creating a CFML app that Ant can build for any environment
    - Using Ant to prepare a path with all dependencies (frameworks, libraries, etc.)
    - Using Jenkins to trigger builds when a Git branch has new commits
    - Setting up Jenkins master/slave nodes on multiple platforms
    - Deploying a CFML application to multiple servers/platforms
    - Automating MX Unit and Selenium tests and monitoring failures
    - Working in a development team using Git branches

    The slidedeck will show lists of information and required steps, but much of the session will show an actual working environment in which changes are made to a CFML application, checked into Git, and automatically pushed onto multiple servers and tested.

  2. Online ColdFusion Meetup (coldfusionmeetup.com) session for July 5 2012: "Multi-Factor Authentication in CF", with Denard Springle.

    Description from the presenter:

    Over the years authentication schemes have changed drastically from the old days of username and password logins. Today, there are multiple kinds of multi-factor authentication mechanisms in use that add complexity and security to your login processes. We'll explore some of these newer authentication techniques and show you how to easily implement a secure authentication process in every application you write. We'll also cover basic PCI compliance, encryption, obfuscation, and access control lists along with password security, password recovery, session management and other topics that relate to building a robust authentication system.

  4. Online ColdFusion Meetup (coldfusionmeetup.com) session for January 26 2012:"Event Gateways", with Kurt Wiersma.

    Description from the presenter:

    Have you ever wondered what event gateways are and what they can do for you? If so this session is for you. We will cover how you can use event gateways to execute code asynchronously as well respond to and handle real time events. Practical uses like an online auction, a fantasy football draft, processing file uploads in the background, and others will be discussed

  5. Online ColdFusion Meetup (coldfusionmeetup.com) session for December 29 2011: "JavaScript Performance Optimization", with Ezra Parker. (There were technical glitches during his presentation of it on Dec 8, so many asked if he might repeat it.)

    Building complex JavaScript applications has never been easier, as libraries such as jQuery enable developers to write expressive, simple code that is reliably compatible with a wide variety of browsers. While these frameworks offer many advantages, they also make it relatively easy to write JavaScript code that may not be optimally performant.

    This session will cover a number of areas of concern when attempting to optimize for performance, demonstrating methodologies, tips and tricks that can be used to avoid some of the more common pitfalls. We will also talk about script loading, and discuss various approaches for loading JavaScript files that can be used to improve the user experience.
