Building An Object Oriented Model - Recording and Sample Code Available

I'm happy to announce that the presentation that I delivered to the Online ColdFusion Meetup last Thursday night, entitled Building an Object Oriented Model, was recorded and is therefore available to anyone who is interested and wasn't able to attend in person. Don't be put off by the fact that the recording is 90 minutes long - the presentation is only 60 minutes, and is followed by a 30 minute Q and A session.

A few people asked about the sample code that I presented. It can be downloaded directly from this post.

Also note that I have written a number of posts on these topics, so anyone looking for more information can check out the OO Design category of this blog.

I'd like to thank everyone for attending and for all of the wonderful feedback, and I'd also like to thank Charlie Arehart for allowing me to speak and for continuing to operate this amazing resource.

Finally, I will be presenting my other cf.Objective() presentation, An Object Oriented Approach to Validations at an Online ColdFusion Meetup session in the near future, date and time TBA.

I just wanted to say that this was one of the BEST presentations I have seen about using OO principles and how to use them in ColdFusion.
Also the analogy that you use with the restaurant business to illustrate the Service, Business Objects, Database, and Gateway was perfect.
You are an excellent presenter and in my opinion the way you organized the material was very didactic and show that you put some thought to it and have great skills.
A co-worker of mine was asking me about OO and CF and I made him watch your presentation so he could understand the concepts that he needed to learn in other to use OO principles on an application he was developing before I try to help him.
It made my life easier to explain things to him after watching your presentation. I found your explanations clear and easy to grasp.
You should do more presentations like that or maybe create a series of presentations or videos and sell. You are by far one of the clear and more efficient "instructors" that one could possibility get. Congratulations! Keep up with the good work.

Wow! Thank you so much. It's feedback like that that makes the effort I put in worthwhile. Thank _you_ for taking the time to post such a detailed and kind comment.
