Coming to cf.Objective()? What Interests You?

The folks organizing cf.Objective() are in the process of finalizing the BOF sessions and are looking for feedback from you!

In case you're unfamiliar with the term, BOF stands for Birds of a Feather and it's an informal session in which the attendees get a chance to chat about a topic with other developers who have similar interests. It's a great chance to get a bit more interactive - you get to participate rather than just sit and watch.

I suggested that during one of the BOF sessions we do a series of Pecha Kucha presentations, which are similar to Ignite presentations, and my suggestion was graciously accepted by the committee. I blogged about this session previously and am still looking for volunteers to present, so if you're interested in that please mosey on over to that blog post and comment.

There are seven remaining BOF slots, and Sean Corfield has blogged about the other topics that have been suggested thus far. Here's a summary:

  • Open BlueDragon
  • Security
  • Extending Mura
  • Home Brewed ColdFusion Monitoring
  • Being Agile
  • Guitar Hero
  • ColdFusion 10
  • Mobile Development
  • SciFi
  • Photography
  • Poetry Slam
  • Open Source Project Discussion
  • Test-Driven Development (TDD)

Decisions will be made in the not-too-distant future, and to help you vote on topics and make new suggestions a survey has been created. It's a one-question survey that should take no more than about 30 seconds to complete, so if you'll be attending cf.Objective() please take the time to add your opinion.

I hope to see many of you at cf.Objective() in April!
