I’m Speaking at Into the Box 2014

Exciting times are upon us!

On May 13, 2014, Into the Box will be exploding onto the scene. ITB 2014 is a 1-day, 2-track conference focused on the family of ColdBox products, CFML, and web tech in general. It’s right before cf.Objective(), so if you’re already going, you literally have no excuse to miss it!

I’m super-excited because I have the opportunity to speak at Into the Box 2014!

My session is ColdBox + ORM: Pink Unicorns Do Exist! In this session, we’ll take a look at all the awesome ORM services that ColdBox brings to the table to help you super-charge your app development. Hope you can make it!

My CBDW.2 Sessions

Wow, yesterday was awesome! My sessions went well (at least I think so), and I’ve received a lot of positive feedback from the discussions.

For everyone who attended, thanks very much for your participation…it definitely means a lot and I hope the sessions were as informative as they were fun to create.

If you didn’t get a chance to attend, the sessions recordings have been posted (see links below).

ColdBox Developers Week is not over, though–there are still a TON of great sessions through the remainder of the week, so be sure to check out the lineup and attend as many as you can. I promise you will not be disappointed!

ColdBox Developers Week!

If you haven’t already (what, you haven’t? FOR SHAME!), be sure to register for ColdBox Developer Week, starting…well…today! This is a great week of really great sessions covering ColdBox, ContentBox, WireBox, AOP, ORM…phew!

Even if you don’t use ColdBox (yet…), I’d still encourage you to check out some of the sessions. It will give a you a good insight into what you’re missing out on 🙂


I’m particularly exited about this CBW, as I have the privilege of presenting two sessions!

Criteria Builder in Action (6.17.2013 – 11:00 AM Central)

With ColdBox’s CriteriaBuilder, you can build powerful and dynamic Hibernate criteria queries with very little code. But does it work in real life? To put that question to the test, we’ll explore some real life scenarios and see how CriteriaBuilder can help us

Building CKEditor Plugins for ContentBox (6.17.2013 – 3:00 PM Central)

In this session, we’ll learn how to extend CKEditor within ColdBox to provide rich, custom content editing capabilities. We’ll also explore how custom CKEditor plugins can be integrated with ColdBox modules to take content editing to the next level.


Hope to see you there!
