Adobe’s Ben Forta visited Australia this week and I had the pleasure of joining him in the ZDNet studios in Sydney. Below is the video interview that was filmed with Chris Duckett. Ben talks about ColdFusion, the Flash Platform and a whole bunch of other interesting things!
10-13 November 2009 is shaping up to be a week of ColdFusion in Australia with many CF related activities!

FarCry Dev Camp: 11-Nov (Melbourne)
Inaugural FarCry DevCamp at Melbourne Law School. Learn about the future direction of the open source FarCry framework and CMS, in-depth technical sessions, case studies and general developer tom-foolery. It’s free and should be a lot of fun.

The inaugural cf.objective ANZ Conference!!! The line up includes Ben Forta & Terry Ryan from Adobe US plus Andrew Spaulding & me from Adobe AU. Even better is that you get to hear from the experts and your peers in the community and many other guest stars from home and abroad. Mega ROI for ColdFusion boffins, and L-platers alike. Get the low down on the latest ColdFusion 9 release and the upcoming ColdFusion Builder IDE, not to mention world’s best practice CF development from the world’s best.
I’ll be presenting a session on how Adobe LiveCycle ES & ColdFusion can be used together, why they should be used together, and how to get started!
We’re certainly seeing a ColdFusion renaissance worldwide. Don’t be a stranger, get re-acquainted with the ColdFusion community.
