I'm presenting CFEclipse to the AZ CFUG this Wednesday, Feb 22! Please come, show up, attend, and be present for my first CFUG presentation ever!

What will we be talking about? The original title is CFEclipse Tips & Tricks, but I think, really, it will be more like CFEclipse: Zero to Hero in 60 Minutes. I'll start with the most basic parts of Eclipse, show you how to get everything set up and then get into all the cool stuff you may have been hearing about. We'll be testing out the cutting (and sometimes bleeding) edge release of CFEclipse and cover all the plugins you need to turn Eclipse into the best tool for almost any job. We'll talk about how it compares to HomeSite+ (and CF Studio), and Dreamweaver, what it's better at and what it's worse at.

What should I bring? Bring questions and frustrations you may have had, and we'll talk about them and try to sort things out. Feel free to bring your notebook (if you have one) and set up your own Eclipse environment along with me.

What will I get? A very strong grasp on the Eclipse platform, and how you, as a developer, can leverage it. You also may win some prizes, there's always a giveaway for neat schwag like Macromedia/Adobe branded t-shirts, pens, mice, etc., or some quality reading material.

Where Is It?
University of Advancing Tech

I hope to see every CF developer in the valley there. Bring your friends!

Nate, i'm there. are you gonna camtasia the demo or do i have to bring my video camera? It's only 30fps so it may not be fast enough to capture your keystrokes ;-)

Ok, the official word is we will be breezing it. John is the man with that, so for anyone interested in watching it live, it's up to him if it gets published beforehand or not.
