Most information and activity for the group takes place on our long-standing site (hosted on the service,, hence the naming of this group). This Adobe groups site does offer the calendar of our upcoming events below (once posted, which may not happen until the week before the meeting.)

For more information on the Online ColdFusionMeetup, see the about page here on Adobe Groups or on the main site.

Note also that the count of members here is not the count of all members in the group: only those who have signed up here on the Adobe group site. There are over 2,400 members who have signed up via the site.

Events - The Online ColdFusion Meetup "Updating/Hotfixing ColdFusion: Tips and Traps" with Charlie Arehart - May 8

The Online ColdFusion Meetup

After a several month hiatus (just so hard to get speakers), I'm going to rekindle things by presenting a talk myself (my first here since May 2011!)

Our 12pm (US ET) talk on Thursday May 28 will be "Updating/Hotfixing ColdFusion: Tips and Traps" with Charlie Arehart

TOPIC DESCRIPTION: (provided by the speaker)

In this session, veteran CF Troubleshooter Charlie Arehart will share some tips, tricks, and traps with respect to applying updates to ColdFusion 11 and 10 as well as some on applying hotfixes in CF 9 and 8. There's a lot more to it than meets the eye, even with the new single-button update feature in CF10/11.



DURATION: Approx. 1 hour, plus time for questions

RECORDINGS: All meetings are recorded. The URL will be posted after meeting at http://recordings.col... . In addition to those streaming recording posted immediately after the meeting, we now also post recordings at usually within a day of the meeting.

No need to RSVP if you're NOT coming: We do appreciate folks RSVPing if they plan to come (using the link on this email or at the meetup site), though it's not mandatory and it's not a commitment. But there's no need to RSVP if you can't make it let alone explain why you can't. With nearly 2,800 members, no worries. :-)

ADD THIS TO YOUR CALENDAR: Want to add this event to your own personal calendar? After logging in here, you'll see an option at the top of the event detail page, just below the event title, saying, "Export", which offers calendar downloads for Outlook, iCal, Google, and Yahoo calendars. (Note that the calendar entry created will show the event taking 2 hours. That's a default that has chosen, which I can't change. The meetings are generally about an hour, though often go as much as 30-45 minutes longer with Q&A and chat.)
