Colorado Growth Model and the Max Awards

This year one of the projects I worked on at Universal Mind, the Colorado Growth Model is a Max Awards finalist. This application is really ground-breaking in the way that it connects parents directly to their school’s performance data. A parent can very easily use the application and see how their child’s middle school compares against charter schools in Denver, or how the nearest elementary school compares with other elementary schools in the district. The possibilities are almost endless.

Come Learn about CF9 with Flex and AIR at Adobe Max 2009

I must admit that my session is going to be pretty awesome. While some people get to speak for an hour – or maybe an hour and a half, I will be speaking for 8 hours (with some breaks of course). I will be presenting on Building ColdFusion Powered Flex and AIR Applications (see all of the labs here). While the preconference sessions are an extra cost ($595), you get an entire day of training from some amazing developers. If you look around at rates for a one-day training, you will see that this is a huge bargain. Normal sessions give you a taste of certain functionality, but at a preconference lab you can really learn it and take it back to your job.

In my session you can be sure that I will be covering:

  • Utilizing the new Data-Centric Development Features in Flash Builder 4 (with ColdFusion)
  • Working with the Proxy ActionScript classes that were introduced in ColdFusion 9
  • Configuring and Using the ColdFusion 9 AIR Offline Sync functionality
  • Working with ColdFusion Builder and configuring it to work with your development server
  • Defining a Complex Domain Model using the new Hibernate ORM Support in ColdFusion 9
  • Using the Hibernate ORM and its ColdFusion Builder Extension to create remote CRUD services
  • Creating new Script-style CFC’s (with annotations)

All in all – you won’t want to miss this session! If you have any questions – feel free to leave a comment!
