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.
