In just 2 weeks, Adobe MAX will be underway. The main Adobe MAX conference does have a few great ColdFusion related classes available but the “bread and butter” for ColdFusion developers will be the Unconference. Sadley, Adobe has relied heavily on the content of the Unconference. It seems that ColdFusion does not on the same level of emphasis as some of their other products. This is especially true in non-new release years. That being said, the Unconference as well as the MAX courses in CF that are offered make MAX well worth the time and money.
I also fully expect more information about CF10 to be announced. Although there has already been some good tidbits about CF 10 released at previous conferences, MAX is Adobe’s official conference and as such we can expect a bigger “show and tell.”
I will be attending MAX this year and am looking forward to many great topics. For a list of the topics I am most looking forward to, scroll down to the bottom of this page. Also, you may want to plan to follow this blog during the conference because as long as bandwidth cooperates I plan on posting as much information as I can. This will include information in the keynotes, but also perhaps something will also catch my eye in the classes. In addition to MAX, I will be staying in the Los Angeles area for a few days afterward to take in some of the sights with my family. So needless to say, I am looking forward to MAX for a multitude of reasons!
