This week, come see CFEclipse at the AZCFUG!

posted under category: CFEclipse on February 20, 2006 by Nathan

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.

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

Nathan is a software developer at The Boeing Company in Charleston, SC. He is essentially a big programming nerd. Really, you could say that makes him a nerd among nerds. Aside from making software for the web, he plays with tech toys and likes to think about programming's big picture while speaking at conferences and generally impressing people with massive nerdiness and straight-faced sarcastic humor. Nathan got his programming start writing batch files in DOS. It should go without saying, but these thought and opinions have nothing to do with Boeing in any way.
