Hi everyone!

The December Meeting of the Los Angeles User Group is going to be next week on December 5.  It's going to be a great meeting, as it is our 2nd year anniversary celebration!

To celebrate, we'll have a special guest from Adobe, Elishia Dvorak who will be discussing the latest and greatest features of the all-new ColdFusion 10.

We will also be having fun at a new venue!  TollFreeForwarding.com is still offering us the use of their conference rooms, but they have moved a block over.  Details below.

As always, doors open at 6PM, and the presentation will start at 7PM.

CF10 Websockets Made Easy by Dave Ferguson
Entry posted on Sep 27, 2012 by go2riarv@gmail.com , tagged Development,Rich Internet Apps

Mark your calendars! Next Wednesday, October 3 at 7pm, Dave Ferguson will be presenting on "CF10 Websockets Made Easy."

Later in the month, don't miss Mobile Camp Los Angeles on Thursday, October 18: http://www.mobilecampla.com/

So, you want to send data from your server to a client, do ya?  Well, then look no further. Utilizing websockets you can push data from a server to a subscribed client in no time flat. Utilizing the new websocket features of ColdFusion 10 you can be up and running in mere minutes.

This session will show you how simple it is to get up and running.  Then once the basics are covered more "out of the box" items will be covered to show just how powerful this "little" feature is.

Dave has been working in information technology for many, many, years.  He has spent the majority of that time specializing in large enterprise-class systems. Dave currently holds a Master ColdFusion Developer certification as well as many other information technology certifications. He runs his own ColdFusion blog, http://blog.dkferguson.com where he posts interesting things he comes across.  He is also one of the voices of the CFHour podcast http://www.cfhour.com.  The podcast, just like his blog, is mostly focused on ColdFusion but dabbles in to other technologies.  Dave is also a member of the Adobe Community Professional group.
