Why you should submit beginner/intermediate sessions to NCDevCon

NCDevCon is a free two day conference on ColdFusion, Flash, Flex, AIR, HTML, Javascript and CSS. We've been building on the success of last year, and making bigger moves to grow the community. We are a victim of our own success.

What I mean by that is, we've taken some big strides to find developers who aren't typically at Adobe conferences. Last year we held a free ColdFusion training day and also a free Flex training day. These training sessions were well received by the audience and much good was done.

This year, the interest for these classes has already quadrupled. We have many more developers who have no exposure to either ColdFusion or Flex. As such, we'd like to ask the community for help.

Many of the speaker submissions for NCDevCon are advanced sessions. We want those sessions to be included in our conference. We also want some good beginner/intermediate content as well.

Of particular interest to us would be sessions that teach newcomers to ColdFusion, how to do common tasks with ColdFusion.

The format for these would be 2 hour hands-on blocks. You provide the content and a step by step process, and we'll provide Teachers Assistants to help you keep the class on track. We'll also take care of making sure the attendees have the right software installed.

This is a great way to help your fellow developers and future developers. We promise to give you the star treatment while you are with us!

Some examples of sessions we'd like to see are:

  • How to build a contact form
  • How to build a dynamic product list
  • Building a data driven JQuery widget with ColdFusion
  • Reusing layouts in ColdFusion
  • Whatever else you can think of

So, if you would like to take part in this unique opportunity, let us know. We thank you in advance for the consideration.

I'm planning to submit a few topics this week (was just finishing a phase of my project to make sure a preso on it was feasible). But it is an advanced topic. What kinds of Flash/Flex topics do beginners want to see? It's been a while since I hung with the Flash newbies, so not sure what topics might be popular among the beginner crowd.

Some interesting ideas might be making a connection to an API with Flex, or maybe some high joy, low effort such thing like that.
