My CFUnited Schedule

Friday, June 13, 2008

This is the first time I've been to cfunited since 2002, when it was CFUN. I really wanted to go this year, and since I wasn't in time to get it on my company's budget for this year, I figured the only way I was going was if I were a speaker. So I'm giving an ANT presentation Thursday at 4. I'll be covering all the basics of packaging apps and deploying them, but also getting into neat stuff like using antlib for looping, scriptdef for string parsing, sql, etc. I'm really excited about presenting this topic, primarily because I see how much time ANT has saved us over the past year or so. I hope to channel the spirits of my cf ant heroes (Luis Majano, Mike Henke, Jim Priest) and give a kickass presentation. Plus, since it's the last presentation of the day, I'm free to stick around and talk more ant after the session (at the bar, with beers. beers and stogies, even better). OK, so enough advertisements. Here's what I'm going to this year. I'm going to try to stick around Saturday and attend some sessions, too, but I didn't sign up for any since I'm not sure yet.
